In November 2002, Paul Elliott - author of various free roleplaying games including the excellent Zenobia - wrote an article called The Gygax/Arneson Tapes for his Tempus Fugit column on RP Gnet. In it, he imaged that Gary Gygax was inspired by Greecian myths instead of Tolkien-esque High Fantasy, and created Mazes and Minotaurs

Along comes Olivier Legrand, a Frenchman game designer, who decides to actually make the fictional game the column describes with three goals:

  • 1) Write a complete game in English.
  • 2 Write a game with a genuine old-school, 1970s feel, reminiscent of early D&D.
  • 3) Write a game that would be totally coherent with Paul's article.

He did, and released to for free!
