Evil Hat to Publish Multi-Volume Designers & Dragons Edition

Posted: September 7, 2012 in Uncategorized

Shannon Appelcline is one of the web’s foremost reviewers, but he is also known for his excellent, detailed essays on the gaming industry.  I’ve read several of his essays over the years about the role-playing hobby, something I didn’t know much about.  Now Evil Hat Productions is publishing these essays in book format. 

From the press release…

If there’s one thing that the “old school” revolution has taught us, it’s that history is important to us as gamers. Our roots matter. But how much do we actually know — or remember — of the origins of this hobby of ours?

Enter Designers & Dragons. In this four-volume, decade-by-decade series from Evil Hat, author and game historian Shannon Appelcline will dig deep into the lore of our forty-year-old hobby, uncovering the forgotten facts and hidden stories behind the biggest and most influential names in roleplaying games.

Whether you’re new to RPGs and wonder where they came from, a “grognard” of the most ancient order looking to dust off some treasured nostalgia, or a tried-and-true gamer looking to explore the field of what is and what was, you’ll find something in Designers & Dragons for you!

If you’re already familiar with the single-volume first edition of Designers & Dragons from Mongoose, in this new edition you’ll find updated and expanded material, an improved page and book design oriented on attractive readability, and new information to fill some of the gaps in what came before.

Look for the first volume of Designers & Dragons to debut in early 2013!
