Other D&D Items of Note

   Posted by: Jim   in Role-playing games

To follow up from my previous post, a few more D&D anniversary items of note that I’ve run across in the past few days (if you haven’t seen them already):

First, Jon Peterson (author of Playing at the World) presents a video called A History of D&D in 12 Treasures, in which he lays out the game’s pre-history via 12 rare or unpublished objects.

Another video is a trailer for a documentary about D&D called The Great Kingdom, which looks like it could be interesting (warning: Zeppelin soundtrack).

Finally, a couple of great posts reminiscing about D&D: the first from Matt Forbeck, the second from Ethan Gilsdorf.

For more thorough coverage of the web’s thoughts on D&D’s 40 anniversary, you might also check out this post on Dungeons and Dreamers, in which I’m honored to be included.

Thanks for posting your thoughts on D&D. Our book, Dungeons & Dreamers, tells the story of the people who created virtual games and built massive online communities. As you imagine, we love running across people who tell their own story about D&D, games, and the impact each had on their IRL experiences.

As I try to tell folks when we talk about our book and the game: It’s time to stop thinking of this stuff at “geeky” and recognize that it’s a part of the fabric of our world.
