While at HawaiiCon, I was on a game designer's panel with this guy. Had no idea who he was at first. Then he ended up being my favorite guest at the con. I was very happy I had my old school books on hand. In this episode I chat up Allen and get some great stories of the early days of Dungeons and Dragons. 

Allen Hammack has contributed to some 70 products as author, designer, editor, or developer. Hired by Gary Gygax in 1978, Allen was Manager of Designers during the “Golden Era” of TSR. He writes often on using myths and legends of the world in gaming: three books on the subject, the Viking Gods boardgame, and was co-editor of Dungeon Masters Guide and Deities & Demigods during the five years he served at TSR.

Allen’s most popular module is C2 Ghost Tower of Inverness, which was actually referenced in the second D&D movie. Allen also wrote I9 Day of Al-Akbar, and contributed to A1-A4 The Slave Lords and the games Top Secret and Boot Hill. Recently Diecast Games published his module Night of the Black Swords. Allen is currently teaming again with Merle Rasmussen on a new espionage RPG project
