CNN posts about Dungeons & Dragons 40th anniversary

CNN has a new article up talking about Dungeons & Dragons and the effect it’s had far beyond just “that nerd game about demon worship” that many people thought it was back when it first came out.



From the article:

Four decades before anyone took an arrow to the knee in “Skyrim,” adventurers were sitting down with paper and pencil to battle fantasy monsters and explore rich, new worlds in a different kind of role-playing game.

“Dungeons & Dragons,” commonly known simply as D&D, burst onto the scene in 1974, long before the word “gaming” came with the implied word “video” in front of it.
