 Interview with Dave Arneson -- Pegasus #1
Arneson: It’s easier to understand than Chivalry & Sorcery®; it follows a more traditional medieval setting than Runequest®, it uses spell point magic; it didn’t go into a lot of esoteric things in the basic volume that I thought were distracting.
Arneson: The escapist element of it (the chance to go out and slay a dragon) not escapist in the sense that you are trying to ignore the real world but the chance to act out your dreams (you are the hero of the book).
Arneson: Well, I don’t want to get into a theological discussion aside from the fact that if you talk to people who are into magic and such things, they would laugh their heads off at the Dungeons & Dragons approach to magic.

In the late 1960s, Arneson was playing military miniatures and board games, with his own club in MinnesotaArneson disliked many aspects  of the "Military Simulations" of the period that miniature folks insist on for "historical accuracy in their games.
Dave's medieval games soon saw the introduction of "Hero" leaders and "magical monsters" in addition to the 'normal' military units of knights and bowmen.

 Return Of Dave Arneson's Blackmoor :: GamingReport.com :: Where Gamers get their News
The famous Blackmoor campaign was the nexus and inspiration for the combination of role playing with miniatures and served as a foundation for what the RPG industry has become today.
Dave Arneson, creator of Blackmoor and co-founder of Zeitgeist Games commented on the announcement of the Blackmoor line by adding “For too long the game industry has been mired in mediocrity, Blackmoor will burn a new path in creativity and ingenuity as it did when it served as the origin of role playing games.”
Knowing that it was Dave Arneson who really came up with the idea of sending a couple of heros through some underground maze, happily hacking away at rampaging monsters, collecting treasure all the while, the re-release of BlackMoor should strike a strong nostalgia chord with us all.

Dave Arneson's Blackmoor was the first fantasy role-playing setting.

The first published sign of it was "Blackmoor", in 1975, a supplement for Dungeons and Dragons (which Dave Arneson co-created).

Arneson changed the rules in his own play, focusing on small-scale scenarios and the fantasy aspects.
These changes reduced the number of creatures in battles from thousands to just 20 or 30, while the fantastical setting enabled them to create any story, rather than be leashed to historical accuracy.
