    TSR Jim Ward: SSI, Dungeons & Dragons and the Computer Industry

    The Dark Sun games were tremendous. The Menzoberranzan game was a mess. Eye of the Beholder was the best of the series, but was actually made by Westwood (though published by SSI).

    D&D General Making The Realms Come Alive

    Thanks for all these insights, Ed! That cover for "Adventures" is my favorite for any FR book by the way... Absolutely love it, and I pull it out every now and then still. :-)

    WotC Baldur's Gate III Announced; Powered by D&D 5E

    Trailer was great! Larian are great! This might just work. Finally Wizards has partnered up with a competent software house. "Too green" though? Yeesh, what about those other D&D games of the past decade? They don't exactly scream quality. Really good start for this one!

    WotC New WotC Game Studio Headed By Bioware's James Ohlen

    Doubtful, Demetrios. They are notoriously dragging their feet in regards to video games. It's a huge investment, I get that, but they need to pull the trigger to capitalize on all of the podcasts and Youtube shows etc. that will earn them untold advertisement (provided the game is GOOD, which in...

    The story is done.

    Quite a few times, yeah. It's a very satisfying thing to experience! Like seeing a story come to a great conclusion (whether good or bad for my character, the story works!). It can also help drive the plot forward for other peoples' characters, if mixed in right.

    Sounds like a great boost in that case, Henry! :-)

    F. Wesley Schneider Is D&D's New Editor

    Here's to hoping FWS is less of a numbers/rules-for-everything guy than I expect after working for Paizo for so long. I'm really burned out on number-crunching Pathfinder. I've been playing high-level Pathfinder for a few years now, and to say it's vastly inferior from 5e D&D in speed and flow...

    NA Hobby Games Market Increases To $1.55B; D&D Remains On Top

    How do you figure that? Regarding miniatures, I'm genuinely surprised at how much they are grossing! That's incredible, actually. I know minis are expensive, but I thought their popularity was waning with 5e going more theater of the mind.

    D&D: The Board Game?

    It was relaunched a few years ago. Simple game still, and one I expect to introduce to my kids before long, along with Heroquest and Mice & Mystics. :-)

    D&D: The Board Game?

    Best D&D board game is "Waterdeep", a worker/placement game. They also recently made some other non-Drizzt'y board games with themes and keywords from D&D.

    Graph Paper Romance: When D&D Characters Date

    Used it a lot both as player and GM. Spouse suddenly having a kid that looks suspiciously like a certain villain, for instance. When that happened, played out, was proven the spouse had cheated on the PC, and the PC eventually forgave both villain and spouse and raised the kid as his own, that...

    Everybody Cheats?

    It's not whether or not they sink (enough salt and they all float, theoretically), but whether or not - when prodded- they always float into the same number on top. Then you have badly-weighted dice.

    Everybody Cheats?

    Tons of dice are faulty. You can do salt water tests to see if they are weighted wrong. Many skew to either 1 or 20. He likely has a few "lucky dice", which are lucky because they are basically defective inside. :-)

    That Cyberpunk game can't get here soon enough! I have huge expectations, but also feel strangely certain that those expectations will be surpassed by CD Project Red.
