At Last It Is Here - Dave Arneson Game Day!

Happy Birthday Dave Arneson!

Now we are here on Dave Arneson Game Day, a day that unfortunately the world at large remains completely ignorant of. I went this morning a couple of hours ago to the WotC website [WotC] and was not surprised to see that they are ignoring Dave Arneson's Birthday.

So if you are reading this or one of a tiny handful of other blogs then you will know that today is indeed Dave Arneson's birthday. The thing to ask yourself is why are there only a tiny handful of blogs and a only a couple of other places that celebrate Dave Arneson's Birthday? Especially considering that none of those blogs or forums would exist but for Dave Arneson.

As of 11AM EDT Dragonsfoot forums (nothing), Knights & Knaves Alehouse (nothing), and Original D& D (nothing). Now over on The Comeback Inn The Comeback Inn there are today several threads some with real goodies. And over on The Piazza there is a thread that shares some of the same links as The Comeback Inn.

Over on The Ruins of Murkhill Forum there is this thread Blackmoor Week and Dave Arneson Game Day where they have been celebrating both Blackmoor Week (the only ones this year) and Dave Arneson Game Day with as of last night 39 blog posts so far and more to be added today.

Goodman Games is AFAIK the only game company to post anything and they have posted a two part Dave Arneson Homage yesterday and today. “Who in the World is Dave Arneson?” A Dave Arneson Homage, Part 1 of 2 by James Maliszewski and I'll link to the second part once it is up.

EDIT: Learning from Dave Arneson’s Published Works A Dave Arneson Homage, Part 2 of 2 by James Maliszewski

We are collecting the links so late tonight or tomorrow I will post all the links we have found.

So are you gaming today or did you game over the weekend. We did, as part of our circumnavigation of the world as they near the end of a multi-year trek, they are now over 40 years of game time into the journey and out of the original 12 characters only 3 have survived this far. They are closer to the end of the journey than they know. Yesterdays game was all on shipboard on the wide ocean and as they approached some islands they were beset by pirates. I hope to post about that in a few days.
