This year is the 40th anniversary of Dungeons and Dragons. So, in celebration of that, and in light of the fact that D&D is releasing a new edition this summer, I’m going to start posting some stories I have of playing Dungeons and Dragons and other roll-playing games.
I actually didn’t start playing Dungeons and Dragons until I was in college. The truth is, D&D was never something I’d given much thought to. I’d heard of it when I was younger, of course, but only in a very general sense, the way I’d heard of fixed mortgages or vegemite or Pearl Jam. I knew there was thing thing out there people played, and knew next to nothing about it.
