Today, October 1st, is Dave Arneson's birthday. As always we celebrate Dave Arneson Day by sharing Blackmoor related material. This year I have something very special to share. The trailer for an upcoming documentary about Dave Arneson has just dropped! The producers became aware that their trailer may have gotten leaked by accident, so they contacted me about doing an official release on my blog to counteract the leak. I suggested that they should release the trailer for Dave's birthday, and they liked that idea. I still have no information about when the movie will be released, but it looks like this is not going to be a Kickstarter project.

Being the huge Blackmoor fan that I am, I am very excited to see what new light this movie will shed on the life of D&D Co-creator Dave Arneson and the role he played in shaping our hobby. This documentary is sure to create some controversy. Dave Arneson deserves a documentary about him and I can't wait to watch it!" I have known about this project for a while as production has been going on for about three years. I am not involved in the project but I did help answer some questions and connect the film makers with some of the people appearing in the documentary.

Find out more details and watch the Trailer here.

Glad you liked it!

Can we identify all the people in the footage?

FYI, the picture in the first post was taken the night we had the Blackmoor reunion game last May at Bob Meyer's house in St. Anthony, MN.

Thanks for sharing that Greg! I had heard that that was the case. From what I heard the following original players were present at the game: Greg Svenson, Ross Maker. David Wesely, Dave Belfry, Dave Megarry, Ken Shepro and James Lafferiere. Also present at this game were Dave Arneson's daughter Malia Arneson, Kevin McColl, James Gallup etc.

Does this sound right to you?

Also, what do you think of my theory that the Wizard Jallapierie (from DA1) is named after James Lafferiere? :)

That sounds right, although you missed Malia's husband, Luke. And there was one other guy playing, sat between Wesley and Kevin McColl, but I can't remember his name.

I had trouble figuring out who a bunch of the characters in DA1 were, it could have been Jim, sure.

I was there as well - not playing, but shooting a lot of photos for the archives. People were having heaps of fun! :)
