1970s hard rock compilation inspired by Dungeons & Dragons

Cities of darkscorch board game 3

Here's another bit of evidence supporting today's Boing Boing special feature about why "At 40 Years Old, Dungeons & Dragons Still Matters": The excellent Numero Group record label is issuing a compilation from mostly-uknown 1970s hard rock groups who really dug D&D. The music set, titled Warfaring Strangers: Darkscorch Canticles, ships on March 1 and, if you're patient, there's a special edition box set coming May 30 that includes a D&D-inspired board game called Cities of Darkscorch!
