I guess Gary was having a hard time handling all those extra players…

David Arneson, the OTHER guy that helped create Dungeons and Dragons, died.

“Dave Arneson, one of the co-creators of the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy game and a pioneer of role-playing entertainment, died after a two-year battle with cancer, his family said Thursday. He was 61.

Arneson’s daughter, Malia Weinhagen, said her father died peacefully Tuesday in hospice care in St. Paul.

Arneson and Gary Gygax developed Dungeons & Dragons in 1974 using medieval characters and mythical creatures. The game known for its oddly shaped dice became a hit, particularly among teenage boys. It eventually was turned into video games, books and movies. Gygax died in March 2008

I think we should have a classics game this weekend. What do you all think?
