3rd Edition D&D: Creation of a Masterpiece Seminar 2019

3rd edition D&D is one of the most popular RPGs ever created. Decades after its release, and after dozens of interviews, the dramatic story of how 3rd edition came to be can at last be told!

Ben’s book on RPG adventure design, Encounter Theory, is 20% off on DriveThruRPG until Thursday! Click here for a coupon towards this essential volume. 

Like Plot Points? Support it on Patreon at the $2 level, and you’ll get a sneak peek into Ben’s book about the sale of TSR to Wizards of the Coast! This chapter concerns TSR West, an effort by TSR to open an LA office devoted to producing comic books, an effort that failed rather impressively. It is the product of a dozen interviews with professionals from comics, gaming, and Hollywood, and as far as I can reckon, it is a tale entirely untold until now.
