D&D is for winners.

An NYT Retro Report on the early-80s shit-show around the Devil and D&D. It neglects* to mention that William Dear (P.I.!) is a grifter and a con-man, but whatever.

And then there's this, two year-old article from io9, "How We Won the War on Dungeons and Dragons". I liked it more, especially the picture of the dungeon module.

* It's possible the video goes into that; but I didn't watch the whole thing.

Well, that's more like it.

This is much more what I had in mind when I heard Star Wars was escaping Lucas's clutches.  Come for the cool trailer, stay for the beginnings of an interview with Mark Hamill, where he looks ready to kill.
