D&D: Edition Wars

Dungeons and Dragons has been a hobby game favorite of mine for years. From the very moment I started my teenage years, I was checking out AD&D 2e books from the local library system, pouring over pages and pages of fluff, stats, and pictures. I can still remember just how new gaming was to me then. It was exciting when the local library first added computers with internet access in the age of Windows 95/98, and basic HTML web pages filled me in on the details of what this whole tabletop gaming thing was all about. Around this time I also found Warhammer (and 40k) on the web, and, excited by the prospect of combining sweet miniatures with a tabletop rules system, I just could not wait to play this amazing, fantastic, magical game.
