For several weeks now, we’ve been hyping up the Gygaxian Fantasy World series on various platforms, Facebook, X, Instagram, and Twitch. It is something near and dear to most of us here in the Dens, even though all seven books were pulled from us in 2008. The echo of them remains, both at our tables, on our shelves, and at the outrageously high prices they cost on sites like eBay. But the more I post about them, the more I realize that though these world-building books might be household names here, their content and purpose might be unknown to others.
In the end, after several days of back and forth in legal wrangling in which
Gary insisted on TLG paying him less than offered, saying “generous as
that is Steve, such a royalty will bankrupt you,” we settled and signed a
contract for an open-ended series called Gygaxian Fantasy Worlds.
