Description Edit | History

First published in the UK in 1982, Dicing with Dragons was published in the US in 1983. It was a look at roleplaying gaming with a two-fold intent:

1. What is roleplaying gaming?

2. Why it's not dangerous.

The second topic was a hot one in those days where church groups were burning D&D books as being satanical, and a woman started an international crusade against RPGs when her son, an avid D&Der, committed suicide and she blamed the game.
