Happy 40th Birthday, D&D!
Today is the 40th birthday of Dungeons & Dragons (well, as near as anyone can figure). I've been playing for roughly 22-23 of those years. Not all those years have been devoted to D&D, in fact, only a handful of them have been, but thanks to the work of Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson I've got to enjoy over two decades of fun with friends and family playing all sorts of roleplaying games. Sure, there's a damn good shot that someone would have put out something that would have ignited the roleplaying hobby if D&D hadn't come along, but D&D became the big dog first and deserves the credit. So again, thanks to Gary, Dave, and all the others that have made this hobby an excellent way to pass the time. Here's to 40 more!
