Beyond Azeroth

"World of Warcraft" is a very popular and successful MMORPG, a Massively Multiplayer Online Roleplaying Game. Around 10 Million people play the game more or less regularly. And I am pretty sure a majority of these people never even heard about the type of games WoW and all the other online RPGs evolved from. It all started with a game called "Dungeons & Dragons", created by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson in the late 70s.
This blog focusses on these "pen & paper roleplaying games". Don’t get me wrong, I am a great fan of MMOs but there’s a whole world (or worlds) beyond Azeroth! And you only need a few rules, some dice, some sheets of paper and your imagination to experience great adventures with your friends.
