Welcome to D&D University. In the posts to follow, I’d lke to talk about what D&D is, what it represents, and why it continues to be the most popular roleplaying game year in, year out.*
Once a week, I’ll be talking about what makes D&D D&D, and, more importantly, why RPGs have such an appeal.
This series isn’t about D&D. I mean, it is, but it’s really about the hobby, with D&D as the framing, it being the RPG most people know best. These articles are meant for those who aren’t familiar with RPGs at all and wish to know more (feel free to point your non-gamer friends over here), as well as people who have been playing RPGs for decades. I want to cover all bases here, and have something for people to be able to find common ground on.
I’ll see you here next week for our first class in D&D University.
*Yes, I know that Pathfinder is cutting into D&D’s territory, but Pathfinder is based on the 3.5 OGL.
