ADVENTURES WITH D&D
by Selwyn Ward
My history with Dungeons & Dragons is long but discontinuous. I was first introduced to the game in the 1970s when TSR’s A5 white booklets started to appear in the UK. I was a student living in London and moonlighting as a member of Games & Puzzles magazine’s Games Testing Panel. I joined a couple of early D&D campaigns but quickly discovered that the quality of players’ experience was almost entirely predicated on the care and effort that the Dungeon Master (DM) put into their design.
