Article: Female D&D Authors

I came across this amazingly good article by Cecilia D'Anastasio on Kotaku titled Dungeons & Dragons Wouldn't Be What It Is Today Without These Women. It's well researched and tells about the contributions of women like Jean Wells, Penny Williams, Rose Estes and our favorite map-maker Darlene, as they worked among an industry that was very male dominated. I was lucky to hear Darlene touch on this subject at GaryCon this year, now read about it here. Enjoy.

I'm not sure how writing a module that had to be recalled and rewritten due to failure to follow content guidelines, is some kind of triumph for the author's gender.

Nor are the Rose Estes books, which are pretty much the worst thing TSR ever put their name on.

John L: Well Ravenloft certainly has never had a dracolich before! It's also had very few nonhuman dark lords IIRC. That would be interesting little domain to create.
