1st of October: Dave Arneson Day
I didn't spit on old skool D&D even once today.  I did gatekeep some board games and growl at a newbie a little bit, just like old Dave.

1st of October: Dave Arneson Day
I remember...  He looks at us across the board of the grandest naval war game scenario ever, with just a hint of a predatory gleam in his eye as he arrays his fleets.  No finer sight in gaming graces my memory.  It was, and still is, glorious!

Been playing rpgs for about 6 years now, and I was wondering who Dave Arneson is?

I was wondering why you stuck a post in the thread before typing 'Dave Arneson' in a search engine. Then I realized that was something I ass_u_me__d you had done.
Here ya go:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Arneson:
David Lance "Dave" Arneson (/ˈɑːrnɪsən/; October 1, 1947 April 7, 2009) was an American game designer best known for co-developing the first published role-playing game (RPG), Dungeons & Dragons, with Gary Gygax, in the early 1970s.

In reply to Yaztromo (msg # 7):

Not as much as Gygax owed him.
