Frank Mentzer is a game designer who founded the Role-Playing Games Association (RPGA).
Besides performing at concerts, Mentzer became a manager of a pinball arcade. Sometime in the mid-1970s, he learned how to play the new Dungeons & Dragons game. Despite having no editorial experience, Mentzer eventually came to work for TSR as an editor in 1980.
In that same year, Mentzer won a "best DM" contest, and this inspired him to found the RPGA.
Mentzer was later the editor for the third version of the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set, known as the "red box".
