Primordial D&D

 Been thinking about this a lot.

Ever since watching this movie.

Which is great.  A must-watch for anyone interested in learning more about the evolution of tabletop wargaming and/or role-playing games. It’s a deep dive into the roots of the hobby, and surprisingly even-handed.  But I can’t shake the feeling it doesn’t go back quite far enough.  This is no slight on the film, just a bit of wistful musing about the movie might have looked like had it been made by Brits as eager to discuss Featherstone and Bath as the film-makers are to discuss Arneson and Gygax.

Spoilers: the right answer is – no one invented fantasy campaigning, and everyone did.
Expect to see more on this subject when time permits.
