In Memory Of

This weekend Dave Arnesson, co creator of Dungeons and Dragons, passed away. The other creator Gary Gygax died last year. They created D and D back in the 1970's. It spawned a generation of games.

Much of the rules and mechanics of Angband trace back to the D and D board games. I purchased an original D and D game back in the 1980s. However I never learned how to truly play the game.

I knew a few people who were in to D and D back in the day. Sadly I never joined them for their adventures. I think I caught up to them through my many exploits with Roguelike games over the years on the computer.

This post is for you Dave. Thank you for your great creation which lives on today in many computer and console games.
