Did D and D Inspire A Generation of Writers

The question is asked.

My answer?  Yes it did, but in two ways.

First, D&D was definitely an influence on creative people and writers.  That’s a given.

However, D&D also inspired other RPGs, which then inspired writing further.  D&D also inspired other inspirers as it were.

Frankly, I want to see more on this.  I think there’s a huge amount of things to explore in looking how the RPG and RPG like gaming scenes inspired fiction.
