Abstract:

Volume 1, The '70s is a comprehensive picture of the beginnings of the RPG industry. Learn about the colorful history of TSR and the wave of D & D inspired games (and gaming companies) to follow, and dip your toes into wargaming trivia. Volume 2, The '80s is a picture of the growth of RPG industry. Take an in-depth look at '80s style gaming courtesy of companies like Steve Jackson Games and West End Games, plus an intro to the small (but mighty!) presses of the decade. Volume 3, The '90s is a picture of the heyday of the RPG industry. This volume includes profiles for twenty-one 1990s gaming companies including Wizards of the Coast, White Wolf, and Atlas Games. It also gives the inside scoop behind games like Dungeons & Dragons 3e, Warhammer 40k Roleplay, and Vampire: The Masquerade. The final and most updated book in this series, volume 4 is an all inclusive picture of the new resurgence of the RPG industry. Includes profiles for twenty-five 2000s gaming companies including Paizo Publishing, Green Ronin, Mongoose Publishing, and yes - Evil Hat. Meet the characters behind the characters and the games behind the games in this 4-volume Designers & Dragons set.
