Description

The first time I opened the pages of The Hobbit, I was transported to a world of fantasy that I would happily never return from completely. Soon after The Hobbit, I was introduced to The Chronicles of Narnia, and my journeys in the fantastical realms of story grew. The worlds of Middle Earth and Narnia built the foundation for my passion for fantasy literature, art, movies, and GAMES. As an avid tabletop gamer and roleplayer, I was thrilled to find my favorite worlds created by the Inklings reflected in games for me to play and to create my own stories in those fantastical worlds. That early excitement became tempered as I experienced the various games over the decades. In this workshop we will discuss the impact of the Inklings on Gaming -- creative inspiration, legal challenges, financial success, failed attempts, and gaming enjoyment.
