Founder of Wizards of the Coast is credited for saving and reviving TSR's Dungeons and Dragons. As a devoted fan of the AD&D game, Adkinson admitted, that
when the deal on TSR was finalized, it was one of the greatest days in his life.
Later, Adkinson became managing director for WoTC since the sale to Hasbro, Inc. and left that position in 2002 (?).
