Blackmoor Week 2019: 7 Days till Dave Arneson Game Day

Welcome to the first day of Blackmoor Week 2019! What is Blackmoor Week? Well it is the week leading up to the annual celebration of gaming known as Dave Arneson Game Day. It is celebrated on October 1st. October 1st was the birthday of Dungeons & Dragons co-Creator Dave Arneson so, just like Gygax Day, this is another great opportunity to celebrate our passion and our hobby. And yes, it is possible to celebrate both days! :)

Dave Arneson Game Day 2019 is a Facebook Event you can check out here.

Blackmoor Week has its own thread at the Comeback Inn here.

Noone owns Dave Arneson Game Day or Blackmooor Week. That means anyone can participate. Blackmoor fans have worked hard to organize activites as can be seen by clicking the links above.

We have several surprises for you this year and I will reveal all of them at this blog in the coming days. We are saving perhaps the best treats for Dave Arneson Game Day itself, but I also intend to drop little treats throughout the week.

As with previous years, I have coordinated with other Blackmoor fans, some of Dave Arneson's former players and colleagues. However, we really hope that others will join in as well!

We are partners with the people at The Comeback Inn, The Piazza and the OD&D74 Forum, but everyone is welcome to join in!

What can you do?

  • Write about your love for RPGs, D&D, Blackmoor or Dave Arneson on blogs, forums or social media. Share stories about your games or get creative!
  • Run games for your friends or random strangers
  • Organize events! 
  • Other things!
But most importantly share your stories, photos or videos and drop me a line in the comments below!
