94: Dungeons & Dragons Part One – Three Hearts and Three Lions

DSRA is ready with a new pairing and we’re tackling one of our favorite subjects, the role playing game Dungeons & Dragons. To start off we’re looking at a fantasy book from the 1950s that influenced the game, Three Hearts and Three Lions by Poul Anderson. Kyle starts by taking a look at the fantasy stories of Medieval Europe and how the Holy Roman Emperor Charlemagne influenced many of the fantasy stories we know and love today. Claire then takes a look at Poul Anderson ‘s┬álife and career and explores how fantasy became a genre. Our hosts conclude with their favorite parts of the book and why they paired it with DnD.
