Wait, you never saw it before?

Welcome to the club. Here's your book of spells and the blood sacrifices are every Friday at 9:30 pm (can't miss Smallville).

I still had to laugh at this. Stupidity and ignorance are so rampent.30 years of gaming, saying Hastor on a regular basis and I have never once seen anything like this. For someone to hang themselves over a game like in the comic... That person was unstabel anyway and would have killed themselves over anything like a boyfriend breaking up, getting a C on their report card what ever.

You have to love Propaganda! Not only that but there is no way to laugh at the stupidity of their cartoon!

I'm german, we got rid of religious people who are THAT kind of fanatic a good while ago... Over here we only get branded as possible amok massacre candidates for playing "violent" computer games...

But thanks for the book. How long do the sacrifices usually take? I have Shadowrun on Friday about once a month and we like to start early.

Knowing the History means having a Chance of NOT repeating the same Mistakes

Ok, have these people ever seen what really goes on during a game? Mostly its  lot of BSing, complaining, consumption of junk food, ego-tripping, and whining. Most of the people I have seen over the years quite frankly wouldnt know a spell book from a sudoku book. If DnD is the path to some kind of "real" power, oh crap we as a race are truly screwed.

True, but I have found that the best way to deal with most of the crap like this is to ignore it. Sure, its good for a chuckle, but if one lets stuff like this get to them, its only empowering them even more.

You gotta understand that this particular piece of ... artistic expression was released 26 years ago. Dungeons and Dragons had a BADD rap and people were scared of us. Ahh... the power we had (not really).

From what I can see on a lot of US religious communities websites, not that much has changed in the last 26 years ;)
