Harvard's Dave Arneson Game Day 2014
So my buddy Havard is celebrating Dave Arneson Game Day 2014 on Dave's birthday, October first.
He's pulling out all of the old school Blackmoor schmaltz and why not. Dave is one of the creators of the game that I love and he's the originator of the first fantasy campaign.
I'll be celebrating right along with my friend by running the original Temple of The Frog from Blackmoor Supplement II on October 1st.
Temple of the Frog is an old favorite of mine. If you want to get in on the celebration of the life of one of the creators and originators of OD&D. Grab a copy of the original Blackmoor right over
And be sure to check out the other great Blackmoor downloads as well.
So we celebrate the life of one of D&D's creators in the best possible way. We play upon the campaign world that he developed and designed. We have a fun time with the game. I think that's what Mr.Arenson would have wanted.
Dave Arenson was taken way too early at the tender age of sixty one. He was,has been, and continues to be one of the main influences on my gaming. Dave is missed by all of us who game. I think the words of his daughter pretty much sum up her father's ethos.
Arneson died on April 7, 2009, after battling cancer for two years. According to his daughter, Malia Weinhagen, "The biggest thing about my dad's world is he wanted people to have fun in life ... I think we get distracted by the everyday things you have to do in life and we forget to enjoy life and have fun."
