About James Maliszewski

Grognardia is a blog dedicated to the history and prehistory of roleplaying games and related hobbies. There are over 3000 posts in its archive, with 15–25 new posts appearing each week. Many of these posts belong to regular series, such as:

  • Grognard's Grimoire: Original game content for RPGs
  • Interview: Conversations with the designers and artists of classic and contemporary RPGs
  • Pulp Fantasy Library: Commentary and criticism of the foundational works of fantasy and science fiction that have inspired RPG designers and players
  • Review: Appraisals of contemporary RPG products
  • Retrospective: Reflections on notable RPG products from the past
Others offer analyses of RPG rules and settings, musings on pop cultural trends that influenced the development of roleplaying games, and memories of growing up in the 1970s and '80s as they pertain to the hobby. Grognardia offers an eclectic mix of posts of interest to anyone interested in the early days of roleplaying games and the people and trends that led to their creation.
