R.I.P. Dave Arneson

I apologize if this has already been posted, but I thought I'd let other D&D fans know who may not know that D&D Co-Creator Dave Arneson has died after a 2 year battle with cancer. He was 61.

The Associated Press dropped the bomb with all the details early this morning you can check it out here.

I myself am not sure how to feel about this information. I don't know whether I should be sad that the other man responsible for making the game that has sucked away thousands of hours of my life is gone, or what. I also find this to be a little scary as Dave has passed away a little over year after Gary Gygax did.

How about you Giant Bombers? How do you feel?
