D&D grows up, and gets a new theme song

Posted by WJWalton on Sun 07 of Aug., 2011 10:33 PDT
Two great links that I wandered across recently:

First, from Austin 360 comes this very positive article on D&D and the people who play it, Dungeons & Dragons Grows Up:
After spending all day on a computer at work, gamers Brandy Hamblet and Travis Fricke said that sometimes the last thing they want to do is go home and stare at a screen for entertainment.

"It's nice to be able to sit down with several friends at once," Hamblet said. "I probably wouldn't get to see some of these people very often outside of the game. I get social-ed out pretty quickly, but that doesn't happen with D&D. I always want to keep playing."

Read the whole story here: [article | archive]

Next, the very talented Allie Goertz has written a song about enjoying Dungeons & Dragons with her friends and escaping from the stresses of life:



An MP3 of the song is forthcoming, and I'm looking forward to adding it to my RPG geek playlist, along with In the Garage, Cloak of Elvenkind, and Ready to Roll!
