Somehow a rumor got started that Ted Turner (yes, that Ted Turner) had purchased D&D from WotC. This is not true. The rumor apparently originated in a LARP that got a bit out of control. As one industry insider commented, “Why would he want D&D anyway? WotC already prints in color.”
I’ve also got one more Origins Award update to make, then I’ll leave it alone. Somehow, we didn’t catch the Hall of Fame inductees until today. Two people and one product were admitted into the ranks of legend: Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman (famed Dragonlance co-authors) and Settlers of Catan. So there.
