Who Bitch This Is? -- "Rise of the Dungeon Master is about the first, and the most authoritative, dungeon master, the face and the brand identity of a franchise that lives and dies by its players and not by its personalities. But as a fundamentally participatory storytelling medium, D&D’s origin is owed to the players, not just the dungeon masters. As of now, their voices are eclipsed."

- Also, the write-up does the comic being reviewed a disservice as you can't tell if all this the author has gotten from the comic or has come up with it herself.36w

- Thank you for this! I saw this and poked Jasyn on Gab asking for a custom literary curb stomp. I knew I wasn't the only one that had the veins in their forehead bulging with annoyance.
At first, I wondered if this was someone parodying the millennial stereotype with their complaining... then I remembered that this was Kotaku.36w
- My summary:
"Everything that came before is terrible and you can be sure if Arneson had caught fame like Gygax did, I would hate him, too."36w
- ...and in case you were thinking that we might be being a bit hard on the poor author, she adds this gem in the comments of the article:
"I am a diehard D&D fan who seriously dislikes Gygax and his legacy."
So I guess I won't be seeing her at GaryCon. It's a shame...I would pay money to see a 1:1 conversation between her and Tim Kask.36w
