HackMaster is a role-playing game produced by Kenzer & Company, being a revised expansion of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. It started out as a fictional game, a parody of the most ludicrous aspects of D&D played by the characters of the Knights of the Dinner Table comic strip by Jolly R. Blackburn. The characters in the comic began playing HackMaster 3rd Edition, which was updated to a numerously-revised 4th edition, and it has been hinted the name of the game was originally changed for copyright reasons. In 2009, Hackmaster Basic (HMb) was released as the 5th edition of the game. The 5th edition tones back the parody aspect and its mechanics diverge much further from the original D&D source material.
