Some ultra-religious friends of mine were terrified that their sons would
get sucked into the D&D world. they were relieved when their sons started
playing Warhammer instead. I never could figure that one out
~ Back in my Dungeon Master days, I actually had a player that was given a
~ copy of that comic by his ultra-religious mother, who wanted to 'save'
~ him before it was too late. Of course, he became one of the hardest
~ core DragonLance players I've ever met. And he had extremely creative
~ places to hide his RPG materials.
~ His mom was afraid he would be playing it when he came over to my place
~ (which of course was true), so engineered that he could only play at his
~ place, under her supervision.
~ Obviously, that threw a wrench into the works, but not for long. I
~ pawed through my various RPG's to find a non-D&D alternate, and let his
~ mom "review" them. Turned out Call of Cthulhu was okay, because, well,
~ "It's obviously just make believe." Huh, go figure. So we ended up
~ playing CoC in his dining room, and even got fresh baked cookies and
~ stuff. Quite froody. :-)
~ Pay no mind to religious nuts; they clearly don't know what they think
~ they know, all the time.
