+ - D&D co-creator Dave Arneson dies of cancer->

Submitted by epee1221
epee1221 (873140) writes "The Associated Press and report that Dave Arneson, one of the creators of Dungeons and Dragons, died of cancer on April 7, at the age of 61. Arneson is often described as an "unsung hero" in the history of gaming, having been largely eclipsed by his collaborator Gary Gygax. While Gygax was known for developing the rules for Dungeons and Dragons, Arneson's work focused more on the role-playing element. Although the two split up, Arneson continued developing fantasy role-playing content, and later taught game design at Full Sail University."
