Dave Arneson Has Also Failed His Saving Throw

Dave Arneson, co-creator of D&D, passed away yesterday late Tuesday night.  He was at least as important to the seminal pen & paper RPG as Gary Gygax, though not quite as well recognized.  Essentially, he took a set of rules for large-scale battles and turned them into something appropriate for one-on-one fights... and that turned into D&D.

I wonder if he'll get the same sort of accolades that Gygax did last year...?

UPDATE: The Order of the Stick understands the importance.
