    WOW, can't believe how many people hate D&D...err...I mean R.E. Howard the guy who created and invented Conan and promoted the entire Sword and Sorcery Vibe from the 30s and 40s and was later used to bring it back by others....and inspired half the listed writers above to write what they wrote.

    Crazy.

    Well, we now know people prefer Epic D&D to S&S D&D. Of course, Tolkien style D&D (he was an influence, but I'd say early D&D was more S&S in playstyle) got bigger in the 80s and probably over half the people who play old school are from that era...sooo...

    That should mean Dragonlance is HUGE with this crowd then.

    With 3e it tried to bring back the S&S style...I suppose we see how that is liked now as we see what people vote towards Howard.

    It's amazing how things have changed. It used to be that the highbrow literati hated Tolkien. Now he is included in documentaries about the 1st World War poets, and his haters are - different.

    It's sad, but as early as the mid 80s I remember meeting university D&D players who had never read Tolkien, but had religiously devoured Dragonlance novels. (That does not mean I am not saddened to see Howard take such a beating, but I have to choose one.)

    And then there were the times that roleplayers would vehemently tell me that Le Morte d'Arthur is "not fantasy, because it is not in the fantasy section of the book store."
