Nostalgia Thursday - Early D&D Monsters

As part of the Gary Con VII celebration, Paul Stormberg and Kevin Maurice set up their history of early gaming which included information on the dime store toys that helped inspire early D&D monsters.  A series of pictures I took of this display begins here on Google Plus.

After returning from the convention I noted that the 2013 article here on such toys was circulating again.

But if you're going to read that, click through the link at the bottom which takes you to the source they used, an article on the subject from Tony DiTerlizzi here.

Focusing on the roots of current tabletop gaming
with an eye toward the last century and before.
