VonGuard writes "Though Dave Arneson, co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons, passed earlier this week, his spirit lives on in games of all shapes and sizes. Gamasutra unearthed a lost interview with Arneson, and has published the piece. It touches on the origin of the 20-sided dice, what orcs should look like, and how Dave was influencing young developers. In his final years, Dave was teaching game design at Full Sail and still running games of Blackmoor with friends."
