ROBERT J. KUNTZ
Robert J. Kuntz is an award winning game designer of both board games and RPGs and one of four LGTSA members present in 1972 who experienced, and thereafter play-tested and built upon, Dave Arneson’s systems architecture that would in 1974 become Classic Dungeons & Dragons™. In 1975 Mr. Kuntz co-authored with Gary Gygax the first supplemental rules to D&D, Greyhawk. He is a former employee and stock holder of TSR and has worked with many major designers and business people in the RPG and table-top games industry, including Dave Arneson.
Mr. Kuntz is noted as being the last primary designer standing from the dawn of D&D and has been interviewed many times about that era’s history. His upcoming book, A New Ethos in Game Design: The Paradigm Shift Originated by Dungeons & Dragons, 1972-1977, is being heralded by insiders as a breakthrough work regarding the theory and application of the RPG concept engine that Dave Arneson created. Mr. Kuntz resides in Corsica, France with his wife, Nathalie-Hachet Kuntz, who is his agent and partner in Three Line Studio.
