Save For Half episode # 38: "Game Wizards with Jon Peterson"

Post by DMMike »

Friend of the Show Jon Peterson, noted author of the RPG industry and all around celebrity joins the Halflings to discuss his most recent work, "Game Wizards: The Epic Battle for Dungeons & Dragons", by MIT Press. The book discusses the rise of TSR Hobbies in the 1970s until the ousting of Gary Gygax in the mid 1980s from its ranks. We discuss the history of the company, the evolution of Dungeons and Dragons during the period, and most importantly...why you should always save a "Bah!" for the right moment.
