Doesn't that kind of undercut the whole premise? Sort of an admission that it was Braunstein that started it all? (which in turn evolved from Diplomacy and wargames)

I don't think so, [MENTION=924]trancejeremy[/MENTION], based on my understanding of the history of Braunsteins and the development of the Blackmoor campaign: that is, that Blackmoor employed some of the features of a Braunstein, but also added a number of innovations of Dave's that were not present in Braunsteins, and then wrapped them in the proto-D&D trappings we now recognize so well. That said, I also haven't read Rob's book yet, so I can't speak to his thoughts on the matter either.

I crit!
I talked to Mr. David Wesely and while he didn't come out and say it directly, it did sound like David Arneson had quite a bit of input, even if the initial idea of the Braunstien wasn't Mr. Arnesons, many of the innovations that made D&D were.

David Wesely has put his name to a set of rules that are available on Drive Thru RPG at http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/139125/Barons-of-Braunstein?affiliate_id=182934

Surprisingly David Wesely has done quite a few youtube videos.

Here are only a couple few

edit: to add that's my affiliate link above. And I do think both David and Dave are geniuses!
