Today marks what would have been the 69th birthday of Dave Arneson, the creator of the Blackmoor dungeon, which was the first RPG campaign, and what would later become Dungeons & Dragons. It also marks the conclusion of the third of three Read an RPG Book In Public Weeks held every year.
Part of the celebration this year is the release of a trailer for an upcoming documentary on Arneson and Blackmoor.
The trailer gives a quick glimpse to set the stage for what one can expect in the movie. The original players of what are now legendary characters from the birth of RPG’s.
