The Cosmology of Role-Playing Games - James Carpio

An article that looks at waves of gaming and the games that appeared at the time. Alpha Prime: D&D 1970-1989 Beta Prime: Vampire the Masquerade 1990-2001 Gamma Prime: FATE, etc. and 'indie gaming' 2002 onwards. Also open gaming licenses and retro revivals. Pathfinder, of course. Really good overview for someone that was completely new to gaming and history, so a pretty good idea for the start of a new mag. 4.5 out of 5
