This blog is dedicated to those who inspired it.
Gary Gygax, Dave Arneson, Frank Mentzer, Tom Moldvay, Monte Cook, David Cook, and the countless other individuals who had a hand in creating and/or shaping the hobby that is Dungeons & Dragons.
J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Jack Vance, David & Leigh Eddings, Robert E. Howard, Lord Edward Dunsany, Terry Brooks, Fritz Leiber, Piers Anthony, Terry Pratchett, and the innumerable authors of fantasy fiction who ignited my imagination.
Melissa Leye, my blue-eyed muse, for listening to my incessant babble about gaming and offering me invaluable feedback.
Joseph Cruz, for arguing with me about gaming for hours on end, and for showing me that writing is much more of a privilege than it is a chore.
And lastly, Taila McNeil, who gave me the idea to start a blog in the first place.
What is this blog all about, and where is it headed?
That’s simple. It’s all about Dungeons & Dragons. Specifically how to play and how to host games. Related topics may find their way into the blog, like video games, movies, novels or comic books, but first and foremost this blog is about playing the game.
I expect the bulk of the content to be commentary or instructional. Opinions about particular products, stories of personal gaming experiences, and how-to’s for playing, hosting, creating, and mastering the nuances of the D&D game.
