The Tavern Chat Podcast - Episode 67 - There's a Succubus Holding a Monster Manual!

Ah, the beauty of late 70's / early 80's advertising. She could have been on a Ratt album cover back in the day ;)
You fiend! Yep, that IS a Succubus holding a Monster Manual. Who would have thought? With this episode, I look at demons & devils in the AD&D 1e Monster Manual and my personal experience with the Satanic Panic from back in the day ;)

  2. Is that Elise Gygax? I know she appeared in some of the other TSR ads of the period, and was smoking hot in all of them.

    1. That is, indeed, Elise Gygax - Gary's daughter.

    2. iirc, that is Elise Gygax, Gary's UNDERAGE daughter. Moved a lot of product though.

  3. Looked at through today's full-frontal-filter, hard to believe that illustration ever caused controversy. They went out of their way to conceal/cover everything!

  4. Calculating for inflation $10 in 1977 would be $41.58 in 2018.
