4 What other roleplaying author besides Gygax impressed you with their writing?
I'm not sure I have an answer for this one. Quite a few of the non-D&D games I've played were ones that friends had, so I never really read the books. And these days, even a lot of retro-clone books have a fairly dry tone to them. I don't think I've come across an RPG book as enjoyable to read as the 1E DMG. Hopefully some other people in this blogger challenge will have some good suggestions for me to check out in this regard.
