The Positive Impact Of D&D

Writers reminisce about Dungeons & Dragons

With the news that D&D publishers Wizards of the Coast intends to release a new edition of the introductory rule set - in a red box no less - Matt Staggs thought it might be fun to ask a few writers about their own early experiences with the world’s best known fantasy role-playing game. Nice to see the agreement that the creativity and mental exercise of gaming helped these people be the artists they are today. There's even a note from a professional educator about how this can help kids get out of passive entertainment and stretch their minds to see more than just what they are given.

Hell yes. Always feels good to know other people get it.

Oh, BTW: that note about WotC releasing a new edition of the introductory rule set? Don't get too happy about the 'red box' thing, my fellow eldergeeks. They ripped off the old look, but it's still 4th edition.
