DAVID ALLEN HARGRAVE THE DREAM WEAVER
MAY 25, 1946 – AUGUST 29, 1988
On August 29, 1988, David A. Hargrave passed from this world to the next. He left behind many friends and thousands of gamers who sat at his table, either in his home or at the numerous conventions he attended as a GM and Entrepreneur.
He is not and simply cannot be forgotten. He touched lives with his presence, with his thoughts, with his games and with his being. He was not a perfect man; indeed none of us are. But he influenced people and taught a wide variety of life’s lessons just as he had learned them.
It’s our belief that the “next world” David passed to was his own creation of Arduin. He’s there right now, beyond the Gates of the Plateau of Forever, living life to the hilt and scribing it all down in some great tome of knowledge that will one day be the source and cause of many an adventure and many a hoary legend of peril and woe.
He’s walking the streets of Talismonde’; he’s in Elric’s Keep at the Tower of the Dragon giving advice to the Albino with the Black Sword; he’s waving bon voyage, shouting “Bon Chance” to an expedition he’s outfitted for a treasure hunt in Green Hell (Eh…No. Hewouldn’t be going there himself), or he’s gazing again upon the Misty Mountains as the Spring sun reveals the snowy cloak that’s settled upon the high, jagged peaks. He’s living
in Arduin just as Arduin lives in him.
Without you David, none of it would have ever been. But with you? OH! What Glories, What Wonders we’ve all lived!
We hoist a mug of Rumble Tummy’s Ale in respectful salute to a man of extraordinary talent, a good friend and fond, fond memories of games Past, Present, and Future...
