  1. Thanks for the link! Be sure to check out my original article (this is what IO9 linked to), as well. It's at suvudu.com.

    I'm a lifelong gamer and was utterly incensed by Laurel J. Sweet's idiotic insinuations. That post, in some ways, was a response to that.

  2. I put a link to the original article.

    When I read the Laurel J. Sweet piece all I could think was, is it 1982, and is Patricia Pulling going to start appearing on TV again. It's absolutely ridiculous what people still believe about DnD.

    Great article.

  3. There's been a lot of words of warning from RPG bloggers who are also authors saying that D&D can delude DMs (and sometimes players) into thinking that they have what it takes to become a writer. I disagree in some respects. It makes sense that someone who is creative and imaginative would get into the hobby, but I don't see sense in discouraging would-be writers from trying.
