The History of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons

The History of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons


We’ve been meaning to follow up on our video detailing the history of Original D&D. So today, we finally continue our discussion with the history of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, aka 1st Edition. We discuss not only some of the major changes from the previous edition but also some of the messy history that was going on behind the scenes. It involves not only corporate politics and backstabbing but also paranoia about Satanism and witchcraft.
