E.  GARY GYGAX:  Mordenkaine's Menagerie
Ernie Gygax:  The Terrible Tunnels
Terry Kuntz:   The Dark Vaults
Eric Nelson Shook:  The Sundered Caverns
Tom Champeny:  The Hidden Caves 
Don Kaye:  Merlynd's Maze  
Jim Ward:  Chambers of Chance  
Jim Goodfellow:  The Mad Paths 
Michael Mornard:  Dead Knight's Grotto

And an Honorarium level dedicated to Dave Arneson and his creations: 

The Haunted Labyrinthe

Joe Goodfellow--Oubliette of the Doomed
Bob Burman--Chambers of Chaos
Mark Ratner--The Ancient Isle
Joe Fischer--The Hideous Halls
Bill Corey/Cookie Corey--Weird Warren
Jeff Perren--Paths of the Forgotten
David Sutherland/Dave Trampier--Museum Phantastmagoria and Wyrm Way
As well as another Honorarium level to Mary Gygax  The Gardens of Gax (linked to Hewaerd's Hedge)  Without Mary's patience, forbearance support and all around great nature in the face of pressure and change, D&D probably would not have been published.  I am honored to create this send-up level for her for she has been sorely overlooked in the historical record from those times.


I am now adding each level as a section to my new Red Book folder and outlining/sketch mapping one after the next.

Lake Geneva Days, Still Writing

I have been spurred to remember--due to the recent explosion of those accusing Zak S. of his many abuses--one of the reasons that I am writing Lake Geneva Days, a definitive insider view of my relationships with Gary Gygax, the Gygax family, TSR, etc.  It's quite an emotional chore re-summoning truths that have been closeted for so long and that paint a much different picture than I have seen expressed over the years and that in many ways approach the realm of the mythical by comparison.  







Wish me luck.   The abuses, the chicanery, the laughs and the fool's quest, and not without the battered POV of the idealist and believer mashed into a cynical pulp -- it's all there and more, including the victory of the survivor as only the latter can describe it while eyeing what is now promoted as fact about those days, its times, its people, and what actually transpired...

No Small Insight



“I love my fellow actors but sometimes I think that their opinions are wrong,” he explained. “True art asks uncomfortable questions and if you find yourself agreeing with everyone around you all the time, you should wonder what your significance as a citizen and as an artist is. But that’s not really important. What matters is that a civilization is kept alive and vital by debate.” -- John Rhys-Davies
