Geoff is an avid D&D player. He’s played since 2nd edition, though he mostly plays the most excellent Pathfinder Roleplaying Game now. Over at Grimm Wisdom, Adam Grimm has listed some excellent reasons for playing Dungeons and Dragons. Go have a read.
In my time in the distant, glorious future, D&D has stepped out of the basements and garages, and has become a major social force. As we have no nations in the future (nations were such a quaint idea, right up there with feudalism and theocracy), we have no need for the United Nations, though we still need an excuse to get together, sit around, and pretend we’re important. The solution? Dungeons and Dragons: the global governance body of the future.
