Of Dice and Men:
Modern Fantasists and the Influence of Role Playing Games
by Justin Howe and Jason S. Ridler "I'd like to throttle Frodo." Gary Gygax (1938-2008)
Take a group of socially awkward souls, a few gallons of Mountain Dew, a bag full of funny-looking dice, some sheets of paper, a rulebook or ten, add an argument about vorpal blades and Umber Hulks, and you have a scene that likely strikes a chord with most people involved in speculative fiction.

Test Rules for Stuff To Watch threads:Feel free to respond here in-thread to another link posted.
- If you're looking to start a conversation, perhaps take your comment and create a new thread with it in the Stuff to Watch category.
- Otherwise, to prevent too many comments in the thread, number your response (first response: ; second response ; third response ). If you see that you're the second person to post, "Wow, that looks cool!" to a post here, then put a "" at the top of your post. Three posts () is the limit: The fourth person to post should just take their comment and create a new thread, to carry the discussion over there further.
