This week, Morrus and Peter are taking the week off for the holidays, so enjoy this interview with Ryan Dancey from 2014. The original video description:

Acquiring TSR! The OGL! Releasing D&D 3E! Saving D&D! Indie games! MMOs! Pathfinder Online! This interview is over an hour long, but it is totally cram-packed with interesting stuff if the recent history of our hobby is of any interest to you.

In EN World's third Autograph Interview, Russ talks to Ryan Dancey about his early career, creating D&D 3E and the Open Gaming License, the gaming industry, and MMOs.

In the third of my EN World Autograph Sessions, I interview Ryan Dancey. Ryan is the man who brokered the acquisition of TSR by WotC, and who created the Open Gaming License - which is the license responsible for most third party D&D content for the Pathfinder RPG. He has also worked on the Eve Online MMO at CCP. We cover a wide range of topics throughout his career, from his start, through the TSR acquisition, the OGL, and on to MMOs and his current project, Pathfinder Online. Sometimes a controversial figure, nobody could say that Dancey has not had a significant impact on the RPG industry. This interview, coming in at over an hour in length, was an absolute pleasure to take part in.
