Make me a History Check! Take a brief look into the history of the world’s first role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons. Read through the story of Gary Gygax, as he creates the father of RPGs. It will lead through each edition of Dungeons & Dragons, from the original to the recent 5th edition; through the various ups and downs of publishers Tactical Studies Rules, and Wizards of the Coast. As you explore the backstory of Dungeons & Dragons, you will run into personal interviews with players of the game, and discover why they love it so much. One of these interviews includes a detailed conversation with independant artisan dice maker, North Arcana. History Check features modern design, mixed with iconic imagery of Dungeons & Dragons’ past.
