Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson Provide Voiceover for DDO
Turbine, Inc. and Atari, Inc. announced today that Messrs. Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson, the legendary co-designers of the world-renowned fantasy roleplaying game DUNGEONS & DRAGONS®, have agreed to provide some of the voiceovers for DUNGEONS & DRAGONS ONLINE™: Stormreach™. As creators of the original pen and paper game, they will provide the game’s first celebrity “Dungeon Master” voiceovers for certain in-game adventures.
In the early 1970s, Gygax and Arneson revolutionized tabletop gaming when they created DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, combining tactical elements of war-gaming with complex storylines and player-driven characters. Since its publication in 1974, D&D® has become an international phenomenon and is widely credited as the inspiration for the modern gaming industry. Gary Gygax has been writing and developing games for more than 30 years and, in 1968, founded GenCon, now the world’s largest annual hobby gathering. For over three decades, Dave Arneson has worked as a game designer, reviewer, video historian and lecturer.
For those with Beta access, if you would like to hear Gary Gygax as the Dungeon Master you can visit the following quests:
- Delera’s Antechamber

- Delera’s Tomb
- Valak’s Mausoleum
Dave Arneson will be the voice of the Dungeon Master in the first live update, featuring the dreaded Red Dragon.
