- The Ambush at Sheridan Springs: How Gary Gygax Lost Control of Dungeons & Dragons
- There is said to be a demi-lich who still wards his final haunt – Wil Wheaton on the Tomb of Horrors, where my 15th level thief got killed.
- Speaking of the Tomb of Horrors, the Wikipedia entry for the Tomb notes that it is extremely difficult (duh!) and full of traps that can instantly kill a character. Best part of the entry…”One technique some players used to get past the deathtraps was to drive cattle ahead of them, which Lore Sjöberg of Wired described as ‘a bit less than heroic'”. bwahahahahaha.
Regarding the first story about the ouster of Gary Gygax from TSR: I’m sure Gary was no cakewalk to work with, but man, reading this stuff sorta makes me want to not play anything past 1st edition.
