Dungeons & Dragons, Part The Second

Although I'm bitter at being scooped by Ethan Gilsdorf, it behooves me to link to his piece on mid-life campaigners. He admits that nostalgia is a crucial motivating factor, but uncovers a few others that hadn't occurred to me, including:

"Gamers are married, making babies. They are encouraging their kids to discard their Xbox consoles in favor of the communal storytelling experience that is the cornerstone of D&D."

More anon.

Yeah, WP, this Salon article also appeared in my morning mail and I thought of you immediately. The thing is...he was willing to get photographed in a NYC subway car dressed in mail...
...would you have gone so far to get a Salon publication?

Well, lessee ... so long as the trip to NYC was covered, along with subway fare ... getting paid for the "story" of course ... oh, yeah. In a heartbeat.
