I was never big into D&D, but I do remember a few evenings in my youth going through some ruins and taking on some monsters.

Funny. I spent many entire weekends and just about every storm day playing D&D. Went through the whole 'parent thinking I was addicted' thing too. But honestly, when you grow up in a small fishing & lumber mill town, what else was there to do?

In hind sight, it kept us out of a lot of trouble because our alternative to D&D on a Friday night was always beer. At least we alternated hobbies instead of just beer.

In a way, I still play the evolution of D&D a few hours a week when I fire up Vanguard, an adults answer to World of Warcraft.

I did a little RPGing in high school, such as Traveler. My brother was more into RPGs and got a nice collection of D&D and Star Trek manuals online.

Never got into it, but I've been curious. RIP, Gary. You were funny on Futurama, too.

I know I've heard it, but I can't remember how to pronounce his last name. Anyone?
