I became aware of something called dungeons and dragons sometime before 1981. Exactly when is lost in the mists of time. But people are starting to talk about it. I saw something in a comic book, a newspaper article, I wasn’t quite sure what it was.
Somehow I got a bit more of an idea Of what that game might be. I met people in junior high school that played it. I remember asking my parents to get me that game. That Christmas in 1981 I got the Moldvay basic set which later would be called B/X.
And there you have it.
