As an archaeologist and a gamer, its natural for me to be interested in the past, the origins of Fantasy Role Play gaming, and the Twin Cites gaming community where it all began.  Thank you for coming on this journey with me, exploring first and foremost the work of Dave Arneson and his friends, but also everyone and everything relating to those early days.  Research of this kind takes time, and turning that research into things you can use to enrich your own gaming experience takes even more time.  Your support is invaluable in helping me to continue to devote the time and energy so needed to preserve and reinvigorate the oft hidden past of a game we all enjoy.

Might as well aim high; - it would be fantastic to earn enough to to turn a hobby into a profession, and allow the kind of travel necessary to do the most thourough research.
