Aww man a trip down nostalgia row. My first chetacrar was a Magic-User as well: His name was Zen Jagen. His career was tragically short, not having saving throws high enough to defeat Large Spider venom. This was 1981, so we were playing the Original D&D (blue rule book). Despite his short career, I was hooked. As for what specifically hooked me? Well, it was two things. First, mapping. Seeing the dungeon revealed a little at time, and wondering what was just beyond the reach of the graph paper was intriguing. Second, buying equipment. Yeah, I know that sounds lame, but I had never played a game where the stuff I bought had a direct effect on the outcome of the game. The concept (at least to an 8th grader at the time) was fascinating.I've been playing ever since. Great stuff!

D&D will not be scrapped. While it's cetiarnly not doing as well as the good folks at Hasbro would like it to do in it's most current iteration, it's still the best-known name in role-playing games today. To shut it down would be one of the most catastrophic business mistakes in hobby games industry history. And it's an industry basically categorized by its incredible mistakes.If Hasbro doesn't want it anymore, which is cetiarnly a possibility, they will likely sell the intellectual property to someone else. And someone else will buy it, for basically any asking price, just to be able to print under the Dungeons & Dragons name. Because while the name may not be making Monopoly money, it makes Oprah-money compared to the vast majority of role-playing game properties.
