An investigation of the literary influences behind the most popular role-playing games.
Drawing upon the original list of “inspirational reading” provided by Gary Gygax in the first Dungeon Master’s Guide, published in 1977, as well as scores of hobbyist magazines and gaming periodicals that helped to define the modern roleplaying game, Appendix N delves into the literary influences that shaped the world’s most popular roleplaying games. Bringing together both works of short fiction and resonant fragments, Appendix N explores and contextualizes the ambitious lyrical excursions that helped set the adventurous tone and dank, dungeon-crawling atmospheres of fantasy roleplay as we know it today.
