AD&D #49: A Look at Dave Arneson’s True Genius

This material was posted on patreon by Designers & Dragons

Dave Arneson’s True Genius, by Rob Kuntz, was something I was very disappointed by when I first received it, upon it publication in 2017. I didn’t see any reason to say anything about it at the time, but after one of my patrons here mentioned the one good tidbit in the book to me, I realized it needed to be revisited. So, here’s my look at Dave Arneson’s True Genius, though moreso it’s my look at the pernicious Dave Arnesonon Revisionism that has beset the industry since the passing of Gary and Dave.

For my fiftieth column, in a couple of weeks, I’ll have a much more positive look at a recent history that offers a more balanced look at Dave’s (important!) place in the industry.
