Another D&D gawd has fallen...
D&D ain't in good hands no more what with WotC owning it.
My high school had a D&D club back in the late 70's I think. I haven't heard anything about D&D in years, I figured it was gone.
I've never been part of the D&D crowd, if there is a crowd to be part of still, but I think most of gamers have or will owe the trailblazers a debt of gratitude. RIP Dave Arneson.
BTW: HAS anyone written a book on the history of RPGs, D&D, etc.
This is very depressing. He & Gygax went too young. They had a big impact on allot of lives.
When I was young, my Scoutmaster introduced me to a D&D campaign he ran. Soon, my friends & I were getting together on the weekends & after school to play. That ended in high school when girls, music, cars, etc. became more important. Some friends & I started up a campaign in college & it was fun, but it wasn't just wasn't the same as when we were younger.
I don't think I played anything past 2nd edition. I'm always hearing about how 4th edition & the game's current owner, Wizards of the Coast, ruined the game, but I don't know much about that. I can't overstate how much that game fired my imagination & sparked my creativity when I was a kid.
