From my perspective wanting less in the way of rules constraints comes from being a veteran Game Master who feels confident that more good material comes from imagination and player interaction with the environment than from textbook rules material.

I taught my younger children to cheer when that closing cretit ran on screen
that the spinoff version of the show never went into production is a sad thing, bacause iw was better, more mature, then the initial series.

Last night as me and my brother were watching an episode of that old 'toon on cable we started talking about how there has never been another D&D cartoon. Seeing how Drizzt novels sell very well, and sell a lot to non players, why isn't there a FR cartoon starring Drizzt? I don't like either, but I know if it was well animated and decently written I'd be all over it. Not a "Saturday morning" style cartoon, but a more mature show on Cartoon Network or something like that. Seems like it would be a good marketing push for the game, unless Hasbro think any possible gains are not going to be worth it in light of the expense.Originally Posted by Col_Pladoh

That's a poser!Originally Posted by Flexor the Mighty!
Perhaps Hasbro isn't interested in such a cartoon series, or perhaps they can't find a production entity that is, because of costs and the difficulty of finding a channel to air the series that would be willing to pay the freight.
What with computer-generated animation, I should think it wouldn't be all that expensive to produce each episode of a new show based on the D&D game. Because of the computer versions of the game, the potential audience is surely large eough.

Gary, first of all many thanks for creating a game that's given me and my friends endless hours of enjoyment over the last 20 some-odd years.
In talking with many of my fellow gamers most of us seemed to have experienced sometime in our early gaming career the "Wonder moment." A time when we were first introduced to D&D or another RPG and after being confused by the pile of numbers, stats, and dice had a singular moment where your imagination "clicked on" and you were seeing the game in your head and you were hooked forever. Did you ever have a "wonder moment" and when did it occur?

Thanks for answering the previous questions!
Why the dungeons? Where did that idea come from? Why dungeon is the archtypical fantasy roleplaying adventures enviroment?

You asked a good question. Indeed, from the time I sat down to create the rules for the OD&D game I was filled with a thrilling sense of wonder and excitement to present and play such a game. That continued on for several years after D&D and AD&D were published,...until the grind of business and associated matters rather wore it out. However...
I have been working on polishing the core rules for the Lejendary AsteRogues Fantastical Science RPG the last week or so, and sure enough, the old enthusiasm was right there! the only problem I have is that my creative energy now runs out in a few hours rather than lasting all day :\

Credit Dave Arneson and Dave Megary (designer of the Dungeon! boardgame) with my concentrating on subterranean settings for the D&D game. The contained adventuring environment was perfect for establishing fixed encounters before a game session, and for developing progressively more hazardous ones as the PCs grew in their capacity to manage them.
Of course, many an exciting fantasy yarn has been set in such surroundings, beginning with that of Theseus and the Minotaur, eh?
