Most D&Ders are at least familiar with this book:
I read most (but not all, IIRC) of this book in about 1987 in my high school library.
I’m still not all that well-informed about exactly what and how this all went down, but I’ve decided to check the book out from my local library and give it another look. Out of curiosity as much as anything.
One thing I do recall, though, is that the simple version of the game described at one point in the book, presumably what’s today called ‘OD&D’, was part of what fueled my mid-80s desire for what today is called old school gaming.
In any event, this is likely to be interesting.
