Goblin Queen (She/Her/Hers)
Ok. So, would we all agree that there were many different ways people played, whenever “the before times” was? And if so, is it that controversial to say that some people played like he describes? And if so, is it not understandable that his mind would be blown by realizing this? And if so, would it not be forgivable that he might have gotten a little overexcited about this realization and perhaps unwittingly exaggerated its presence in sharing that excitement with his audience of mostly young, relatively inexperienced players?He doesn't say, "This is how Gygax and his friends played." He goes out of his way to say, "This is how people played it in the before times and it blows my mind that they did it this way." while getting it completely wrong.
