Random Wizard has done another set of very interesting interviews with former TSR employees, both friends of Gary Gygax. This time James Ward (author of Metamorphosis Alpha and Gamma World) talks about Gary,and working at TSR. Rick Krebs (author of GangBusters) talks about Gary, the development process of Gangbusters, and the role of computers with RPGs.
Our current Cancer Fund drive continues (see below). Don’t forget that all donations between now and 9pm Monday evening will be split between the cancer fund and the Ernie Fire Relief Trust Fund (for Ernie Gygax) counting for our giveaway items as explained in this post: Help Gary Gygax’s Son Ernie Recover From A House Fire. To be honest, however, any donations made before I get up tomorrow morning will be included in this combined drive. I’ll either brain dead from my sinus headache by 9pm tonight or so doped up on sinus meds that I might as well be brain dead and will have to put off handling donations until morning. You can thank the 20-30 mph winds I had to be out in this morning for this.
The Brown Box/Wee Warriors Cancer Fund Drive is on. 12 giveaway items (including a third printing Brown Box D&D and Wee Warriors items) are available. High Donors will get get six (their choice), the rest will be raffled off with each $10 donating giving you one chance. You can see the complete list of 12 items and read more about this fund drive in this post: Brown Box D&D and Wee Warriors Goodies Available (For Cancer Fund Donors). This is in addition to the usual PDF downloads and other benefits of a donation to the RetrpoRoleplaying Cancer Fund. To get help us pay our cancer treatment related bills (and to get access to some special downloads and a chance at the above-mentioned items), send a donation in any amount — small or large — to me via Paypal. Thank you!
