Jon Peterson continues his fantastic academic approach to documenting the history of our hobby with an article centered around Gary Gygax’s birthday and how there was a changing of the guard at TSR many years ago. As always, Jon goes into an incredible amount of detail, but doesn’t make the topic dry or uninteresting, and gives a powerful accounting of the circumstances of Gary’s ousting. It’ll take some time to read through, but it’s well worth doing.
If you’re interested in picking up Jon’s Playing at the World, you can purchase it in digital format on DriveThruRPG [AL] or RPGNow [AL] or via Amazon [AL]. It really is a well-written text and something that everyone should read if interested in the history of our hobby.
