Genesis Like Athena popping out of Zeus’ head, D&D sprang from the fertile brain of Gary Gygax, a former insurance adjuster from Chicago. Gygax’s creation blended the sophisticated rules of tabletop war games with a high fantasy milieu, which drew from the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, Fritz Lieber, and Jack Vance. The original three-volume set was published in 1974. (Gygax died in 2008, at 69.)
