40 years ago this month, Dungeons & Dragons emerged from the basements of Gygax and Arneson and thrust itself upon the world. I was six, and living in the middle of rural Iowa, so it would be a few years yet before I grew aware of a game that, in a lot of ways, would change my life. Kind of weird to say, maybe, but true.
So, Happy Birthday to the Grand Old Man of Gaming! So, does this make the next edition of D&D sort of a midlife crisis for the game? I suggest either a hairpiece or a convertible.
