Get a first-hand account of the early history of D&D! Allen Hammack developed and edited materials during the “glory years” of TSR. He’ll share stories, answer questions, and demo a short scenario.


While attending Gen Con XI in 1976, Allen Hammack met TSR founder Gary Gygax, who later hired him as a games editor in 1978. Hammack went on to develop and edit multiple TSR role-playing products, including many books, guides, and peripherals. Best known for C2: Ghost Tower of Inverness, Hammack has contributed to over 100 products as author, designer, editor, or developer. He writes often on using myths and legends of the world in gaming: three books on the subject, the Viking Gods board game, and was a chief editor of Dungeon Masters Guide and Deities & Demigods during the five years he served at TSR. Allen was Manager of Designers during the “Golden Era” of TSR. Tracy Hickman called Allen “the man who taught me how to write.”
