I’m not sure it’s the answer they wanted but a recent search that lead someone here: “where did people go in the 80s”.
Well, they did go and play D&D so it’s a valid answer.
Item the second is there is a lot of talk about how D&D in the 80s was a fad and we’ll never see it again. While I don’t disagree I think that concluding the hobby is doomed, Doomed, DOOMED because of it is false. Why?
