If Gary and Dave had made D&D ads circa 1980

Hello there. My name is Gary Gygax and this is Dave Arneson. You know, it occurred to Dave the other day that between his Braunstein fantasy campaigns and my premium grade medieval miniatures rules, we could make a truly superior premium-grade tabletop game. It sounded good to me. So Dave took out a second on his house, and wrote to Harvard for an MBA, and now we’re preparing to enter the game business. We will try to keep you posted on how it’s going. And thank you for your support.

Thanks to Christopher at A Rust Monster Ate My Sword for the inspiration as well as Ed and Frank.

  1. Funny! But Gary would have dug deeper into his thesaurus for words not used since the 1380's. And then he would tell you that his rules were the only right, and official way to play an RPG. God love them both. Where would we be without 'em?
