I apologize in advance if this is in the wrong place. Anyone please move it, if this is the wrong place. Thank you! This is something I thought you folks would like to know about. This is Rob's Press Release and he is trying to get in touch with havard.


Why is it that the question still persists of what a Role Playing Game is 46 years after David Arneson first contrived it into being and then a little later with his new partner, Gary Gygax, made the concept available commercially?

Award winning game designer and author Robert J. Kuntz presents the answers in the book, Dave Arnesonʼs True Genius, and they will surprise the entrenched, provisional views of those who have been in a perpetual argument until this point.

In this book Mr. Kuntz describes and explains through design theory and systems theory terms and examples what Arnesonʼs genius accomplished which is no less than the shattering of 2,000 years of game design history and theory.

Available April 13 from Three Line Studio: https://www.threelinestudio.com/store/dave-arneson-s-true-genius/

Its out already? :)

Man, I have been so busy lately I completely missed this release date. Thank you so much for posting about it here!

I am so happy that Mr Kuntz decided to write this book. He has always been very helpful to me, helping me understand the early days of gaming and I am really eager to get a truly in depth understanding of his take on Dave Arneson.

BTW: You should include a link to your site in your signature. That would help remind me to visit there more often too. :)
