Why did TSR, the company founded to publish Dungeons & Dragons, flounder and fail in the 1990's? Ben Riggs goes deep with this updated seminar on the end of the company that birthed the role-playing game hobby.
Ben's book on RPG adventure design, Encounter Theory, is 20% off on DriveThruRPG until Thursday! Click here for a coupon towards this essential volume.
Like Plot Points? Support it on Patreon at the $2 level, and you’ll get a sneak peek into Ben’s book about the sale of TSR to Wizards of the Coast! This chapter concerns TSR West, an effort by TSR to open an LA office devoted to producing comic books, an effort that failed rather impressively. It is the product of a dozen interviews with professionals from comics, gaming, and Hollywood, and as far as I can reckon, it is a tale entirely untold until now.
