An E-Mail About a Game


WANTED: Stout-hearted adventurers to investigate recent hobgoblin activity three miles outside of town. Fantastic opportunity to enter the high-growth industry of villain-slaying. Interest in local history a plus; intense hatred of hobgoblins a must.

Salary: Whatever you can find and carry home.

Health Benefits: None; 10% discount on funerals in the event your body can be found.

Are you a bad enough dude to investigate (kill) these hobgoblins? Please send letter of inquiry.


As you have probably detected, I am trying to make good on 2008's resolution to play way more pen and paper Dungeons & Dragons. Are people interested in doing this? Does a couple hours on Saturday afternoon sound appealing?

Please pass word along to any of our other friends who are nerdy, awesome, and nerdily awesome enough to participate. Please don't stress too hard about why you were selected as being obviously nerdy enough to want to do this.

For those who don't know, Dungeons & Dragons is the fun and funny way to have some yuks, roll some dice, and shout things in a wizard voice.

I am happy to host this groovy event. I am also amenable to anyone with a larger living room who wants to save themselves some travel time hosting.

If you are interested in this, we can start discussing the crucial first step of character creation as soon as you like. Are you a crafty wizard, who studied many years in the elven forests? Are you a mighty half-orc barbarian, only just civilized enough to survive in a human town? Perhaps you are a charming human bard, with a big floppy hat and an old-timey guitar! These are just three of the over EIGHT HUNDRED options available to you.

Crap, I can't believe how much loose puss we're going to get if we play a game of Dungeons & Dragons.
