A new index, to make things a little easier for navigation.

As usual, an index for any conversions I write up for this series.

Presented here is a television commercial from the 1980s for the Dungeons & Dragons RPG. There is certainly little here that would have induced most young people to actually play the game but, despite TSR's best marketing efforts, it succeeded anyway. Does anyone remember actually seeing this ad when it aired? And show us the game where a Lightning Bolt ever killed a huge Red Dragon! 

Back in the late '90s, most of my favorite gaming publications had become soulless house organs for big companies, and one of the freshest and smartest 'zines available was an independent publication called Serendipity's Circle. One issue I particularly enjoyed had as its theme "Bad Girls," the editorial for which appears here. 

This article by modeler John Flint appears in the May 1974 issue of the British publication "Wargamer's Newsletter." In that it refers to game sessions that use live fire to resolve combat, it is very reminiscent of what H.G. Wells presents in his 1913 game treatise Little Wars

There is, perhaps, no legend that has been as widespread, persistent, and well known throughout human history as that of the lost continent of Atlantis. This legend is exceptional in that it is not just about something old, it is a story that is itself very old, and one that is about something even older.
