Dungeons, Dragons, and You

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 30 or 40 years, you know all about Dungeons and Dragons. Maybe not exactly how it is played, or what monsters there are, but you have heard of it. So and so has mentioned it in passing, Uncle Tony played it when he was a kid, and the comic book shop is filled with dice and pieces. D&D, just like a lot of todays games is a thinking game. You get to make a character with traits, powers, and a back story. You get the opportunity to make them as badass, or not, as you want.

I was exposed to this game at a young age, but never had any interest. It wasn’t until I started dating a gamer that it peaked my interest. Problem with that? He had no desire to teach me. He had no patience to play with a noob, and couldn’t find the time he needed to do so, since his commitment was to several games besides D&D. I lost interest. I dove into comics, and other nerderies, and it wasn’t until Drew I realized how much I wanted to play. I wanted to learn, and be a part of this community. There is something special with these people. Yes, they can be weirdos, but we all are, right? They are the passionate kind of weirdos who can live out their fantasies while drinking a beer and hanging out with their friends.

Learning D&D can be really intimidating, and the fact that a website exists like the one that Joshua has founded is an amazing tool. It takes a lot of the uncertainty away, and breaks things down in a way that everyone can understand.

Evansville needs a community like this, and Joshua is the person for the job. Being a DM/player for all the years he has makes him the perfect match for the job.

Don’t just take my word for it, check out LearningD&D.com, and make sure you follow Joshua and his journey to make the world a better place with the love of nerdtastic games!
