A history of D&D

Wired has a nice article going over the history of Gary Gygax and D&D. It got a lot more back story than I've seen elsewhere.

This is what Gygax thinks his legacy should be. People playing games together in the flesh, with a real, live dungeon master guiding them. That's what he thinks is wrong with the new direction for Dungeons & Dragons with its new 4th Edition. "D&D is not an online game," he says. "There is no role-playing in an online game that can match what happens in person."
