Thank You For Everything, Dave Arneson

  And once again, while everyone keeps singing the praises of the guy who helped co-create D&D, the guy who came up with it in the first place continues to be forgotten in comparison. (And this isn't an attack on the co-creator.)
  Of all the blogs I follow, not a single one mentioned that Dave Arneson died on April 7th 2009.
  No, I'm not trying to guilt-trip anyone. My goal here is to point out how unbalanced the scale of recognition in our hobby is.
  Thank You for everything, Dave Arneson. Some of us still recognize you as the original creator of the game we love so much.
