Snafaru has a couple blurbs on his site about the split with the original Wiz guys - Trebor and Werdna. If I remember correctly, they are mini-interviews with the actual guys.
As for the *weak* ploy in W&W, I read the same thing in every interview/preview/review of the game. But really (we've covered this partially before) if you boil it down far enough, (almost) every story has the same plot. You are the good guys and you have to acquire some ultimate artifact to beat the bad guy - name that story You should be able to guess it in the first 5,000 tries
Duh, forgot I was making a point (or at least had more to say ...)
But, once you just paste the cut-and-paste plot and get into the details and the story, many take on a life of their own (books and games).
