Designers & Dragons is a four volume book series of RPG industry awesomeness, meticulously researched and prettily packaged. Author Shannon Appelcline guides you company by company through the history of tabletop starting in the 1970s all the way up to present day. This series is chock full of fascinating insider tidbits, company profiles, and yes—enough drama to fuel a hundred campaigns.
Evil Hat Productions is incredibly proud to produce this updated edition of Designers & Dragons. You may remember the first edition that came out from the lovely people at Mongoose Publishing—we’d wanted to publish it then, but missed the chance! So we leapt at the opportunity to take it on once their one-volume version went out of print.
Even if you own the big black book (aka, the first edition), there’s still plenty of new material in this second edition—over 50,000 new words in the first volume alone. Our edition is fully expanded and extensively updated, a multi-volume set that won’t break your back, illustrated with pretty pictures of the games you remember fondly. RPG WIN! Bathroom reading victory!
