Are people going to be comfortable with those Satanists in there with Barbie?

Yes, Barbie is a very strict Reform Cthulhuite.
Historically they don't get on.

I'm more concerned of how that devilish invention, the swing, got in.

I would think the board wargame from Avalon Hill and SPI would make in there some day. I'm sure that's were most of us on TMP got our start.

Quote: "But most importantly, Dungeons & Dragons' mechanics lent themselves to computer applications"

While I'll admit it influenced computer games, I would argue with "most importantly".

Very kewl. Like Tekawiz said, my life-long friend Glenn and I started playing AH and SPI games. We saw D&D at the local mall's 'Hobby Center' store….we both kicked in $5 USD to buy the game, the rest is history…..

A revolutionary game. I have fond memories of playing it as a kid.

Hard to imagine a world where it did not exist.

I still play almost as many RPGs as wargames, sometimes more. D&D, runequest, rolemaster, played them all, and still do.

Yes many fond memories like when my younger brother wizard who decided to attack an Ogre with his Shocking Grasp spell and rolled a "1".

Did not end well for his Wizard after that since the Ogre grabbed him and threw him down and then crushed in his chest with its club.

It was the one game where rolling a "1" meant really bad things were going to happen.

Like when my Elf thief was jumping from floating wooden platforms in order to get to the other side and while making one jump he roll that "1" and end up falling into a river of lava.

Great game and great fun but just don't roll a "1".
