Kanemano: Because People in power are Stupid: He was probably referring to the cartoon.[2.bp.blogspot.com image 742x572]Stars like Willie Ames and Donny Most really didn't have a career after this flop.FLOP ???? that was the greatest single cartoon in all of human history.

TV's Vinnie: Daymn! It's been eons since I've heard Patso give one of his classic anti-D&D screeds.Do people even play D&D anymore?
Parthenogenetic: No love for Shadow Over Mystara?

The Muthaship: Silverstaff: uncool preacher dude storyI don't think any in history ever didn't happen as much as this didn't happen.
uncool preacher dude story
Peki: Parthenogenetic: No love for Shadow Over Mystara?That was one of the things I loved about RPGs. One of the first acceptable outlets for those who don't follow prescribed gender norms (girl thief)./and girls in D&D could be seriously badass
digitalrain: Arachnophobe: Felgraf: Arachnophobe: FelgrafIt's really the best D&D movie ever made. (And they may be working on a followup? Can't recall)They are! It was Kickstartered and fully funded. It's called 'The Gamers: Hands of Fate'.Wait, what is this awesomeness of which you speak? A good D&D movie?
FuryOfFirestorm: Parthenogenetic: No love for Shadow Over Mystara?Rumor has it that Capcom is going make a re-release, like they're doing with DuckTales.
Arachnophobe: so it's not like you've got a Big Bang Theory situation where writers are tossing out what they think gamers are like.
Kibbler: I remember back in the late 80's, some wacko church announced an event for everyone to bring in all of the albums, books, and other evil paraphernalia of that most decadent and horrible of Satanic cultural icons...Mr. Ed.No really. Mr Ed.And it was no joke either. The pastor fervently believed that Mr. Ed was sending Satanic messages to kids. A character from a TV show that, even then, had been off the air for 30 years.And there was a rally and a bonfire, and hundreds of people came, and they all had Mr. Ed junk.It was at that point that any slender remaining faith I had in the non-idiocy of humanity evaporated.

Dixon Cider: I can't wait till he dies and is very disappointed!If not... I hope he is eternally assraped, rape-rape style, for all the lives this POS has destroyed with his ignorant and bigoted words.How many kids committed suicide or lived in mental anguish because their parents were listening to what this taintwad said?He ranks up there with any destructive religious zealots in history...
keypusher: Paging The Muthaship....
The Muthaship: keypusher: Paging The Muthaship....Word.That sh*t never happened either.These preacher anecdotes are so cliche`, I keep expecting Keving Bacon to dance his way into this thread./I dislike preachers more than anyone on here//still not buying it
Magnanimous_J: downstairs: jigger: Is he having flashbacks to 1978? This is what they were saying back then. Also Knights In Satan's Service.All Children, Devil's ChildrenI heard it as "Against Christ, Devil's Children"
Ned Stark: D&D blows. there are much better games out there people. don't roleplay with crap just because its famous crap!
kiwimoogle84: TV's Vinnie: Daymn! It's been eons since I've heard Patso give one of his classic anti-D&D screeds.Do people even play D&D anymore?Absolutely! That and all other kinds of tabletop RPG's. I think he's throwing D&D out there as a generalization, because he probably isn't aware of the existence of Pathfinder, World of Darkness, Ars Magica, and Cthulhu- my favorite. It's how I bond with some of my oldest, closest friends. Sometimes we get nothing done because we're laughing hilariously but it's still social time well spent.

ArkAngel: He wears a disguise to look like human guys. But he's not a man he's a Chicken Boo
jigger: Is he having flashbacks to 1978? This is what they were saying back then. Also Knights In Satan's Service.
Anderson's Pooper: I can count three ordained ministers that were in my college D&D group.
eudemonist: Gotta disagree with Pat on this one. D&D helped me _find_ God.
Arachnophobe: Jument: When I was in high school I was very into D&D and other RPGs. At the time there was a media backlash, one of the first ones probably. At the time we had a house cleaner in once a week. One day my Mom said "the house cleaner found your D&D books, she was horrified and told me I need to make you stop playing". I was quite shocked. Then she said "so I fired her".Please high-five your mom for us.
Okoboji: Damn, he's still beating that horse? I thought that stopped being a concern once the books started costing as much as a transmission replacement./$40+ for a book you're just going to 'update' in about a year? Bite me, WotC.//Sticking with my old ones.
DigitalCoffee: Pat, I'm sorry, but it's too late. You've awakened the gazebo. It catches you and eats you.
neongoats: Antimatter: neongoats: Facetious_Speciest: What if I'm playing a LG cleric of Yahweh? Still evil?YHWH is at BEST lawful neutral with evil tendencies. On a good day.Old testament, I dunno, i'd go more with Lawful evil. NT, however, would be neutral good I think.Only the Yeshua cult. They cribbed the portfolio of Ilmater the crying god.
FarkinHostile: I LIVED that shiat for 7 years, forced to go to a Pentecostal church and school. The "Pastor" was a fire and brimstone southern baptist trained evangelical. Everything those two folks above said happened to me in one way or another. D&D, ALL rock music, ALL TV shows were satanically inspired and if you listened/played with them you were on your way to burn in hell for all eternity.You know jack shiat about fundamental christian cults. WE do.
Uzzah: Bree yark!
