History of D&D

The background of everyone's favorite roleplaying game continues to surprise me the more I read about it. Here's an exhaustive recounting of D&D's history from inception to v3.5 that gamespy.com did for the game's 30th anniversary. It's in multiple parts which you'll see after clicking the link: http://pc.gamespy.com/articles/538/538848p1.html

Cool stuff. I have the "official" 30th anniversary book, which is awesome in its own right, but the link touches on a bunch of different subjects that are interesting as well.

The mention of James Dallas Egbert in particular dredged up some, um, interesting memories. He's the real dude that they based that awful movie "Mazes & Monsters" upon. My aunt gave the book about the case to my parents for Christmas, and I had to then provide a lot of explaining about how the author didn't have a clue about what he was writing. Not fun for an eleven-year old ... fortunately, my parents chose to listen.
