Pour a 2-liter of Mountain Dew on the curb . . .

Dave Arneson died this week. He was one of the wargamers/fantasy fans in Minnesota who tweaked, re-interpreted, and wrote game rules that ended up becoming our modern tabletop roleplaying games. Arneson created the Blackmoor setting, the very first roleplaying “game world.” RPG evolution is convoluted and involved and required a large number of Minnesotans named “Dave” for some reason; Arneson remained involved his whole life, and he’ll be sorely missed.
