    Thank ya for the compliment. Naw, I'm a writer, but the artist is pretty well known in the comic book world. The artist is Brett Barkley and he does awesome work.

    Re: Role Players

    I started playing in 1974 with Chainmail, the precursor to D&D and then played actively until the mid-80s. However, it got harder and harder to find anyone who actually wanted to play who wasn't a screwed up idiot. The last group we had, one member got so into Vampire: The Masquerade that he started dressing all in black and refusing to leave the house during daylight hours. Since he was the ride everyone else had to the game, we just stopped playing. Every attempt since then has failed because the people were just too messed up. I'd like to again one day, occasionally, my wife and daughters and I will sit down and play Paranoia or something, but it's hard to find anyone well-adjusted who likes to play.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    That's my problem, as well.

    The guys I used to play with, are perpetually single and get very jealous, if I couldn't drop everything to go hang out with them.
    I had to cut ties because of it.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Played pen and paper Star Trek role playing games during the '80's and '90's.

    Yeah, it can be tough to find a good group. I've played with 4 or 5 different groups here over the last 3.5 years. Fortunately, they were mostly normal people, the groups just didn't work out for one reason or another.

    I'm currently playing with two different groups, one which is mostly stereotypical nerdy college kids (my wife and I are the oldest people in the group). The other is made up of normal, well-adjusted, successful people. We even get along well and hang out outside of the game.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Same here. I had a group through most of the 80s and while I'm still good friends with most of them, I am the only one out of the group who ever got married, ever had kids, has ever held a good job, etc. It's kind of sad, really.

    Let's see if I can remember right. There were five guys I used to play RPGs with.

    One went to the Citadel and became a career military officer.
    One became an engineer.
    Another is a firefighter, a supervisor and trainer actually.
    One got killed in a robbery at his place of business, shortly after being engaged. Good guy, miss him.
    The other is a security guard who never married and can barely carry on a conversation with someone who doesn't speak geek. (this was the one who was really really into it, and still is.)
