So many lives, so many paths to wander. Where does it all begin?
The Appendix N Library
Long ago – but not so very long ago, as the Ages pass – Fantasy Role-Playing Game co-creator E. Gary Gygax shared Game Master Appendix N, a list of his favorite tales of fantasy, science fantasy, and weird fiction.
The author of Castle Oldskull celebrates these unforgettable epics, tales, and mythologies here, legendary works which together exemplify the storytelling roots of Swords & Sorcery.
For each Appendix N author, I recommend a gateway work to begin to your journey. You will find many favorites here; for those who are about to step over the threshold for the very first time, I envy you. Happy reading!
