What and Why Does This Site Exist?

After Chet from The CRPG Addict blog site recently and successfully won the ancient Camelot game with his character "Chester," I realized a few things:

  1. It is simultaneously amazing that a forty-year old computer game running on a cloud-based emulator of a computer system originally designed and built in the 1960's is still running and able to be see and played, not to mention that it is not a trivial thing for a modern person to figure out how to play, let alone win, such a game.

  2. The history of the original Camelot game simultaneously intersects with the cultural and technological revolutions inspired by the mythology of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Gary Gygax's Dungeons & Dragons, the world's first multi-user graphics-capable computer, the Internet, and finally the mash-up of all these elements into the massive, international, billion-dollar business and cultural phenomenons of Massive Multi-user Online Role-Playing Games (MMORPGs).

  3. This history and present-day reality of all these things also intersect with my own life and history, and deserve to be shared and preserved.

Thus, please be invited to read-on and learn more about this amazing piece of living history!
