Well, I'll confess that I've been seen occasionally at the DnD table with my son and his friends. My current character, an Elven priest, was zapped into oblivion recently. While I've been busy (and dead in the other realm), the other players were kind enough to get me resurrected.
I'm ready to answer any questions about "the other side" to those who want to know. ;-) I find that fantasy is good, as long as one does not live his life in it. It is an escape, but with anything in this world, it can be addictive and distracting from the important things. I suppose that's why I don't play DnD more than 3-4 times a year usually. There are too many real things to do. Life needs some fun. And we need to be able to develop our imaginations. What books got you reading when you were a kid? How many of you in first grade, were captivated by Stephen Gould's explanations on evolution? Not many, eh? How many were role-playing Spiderman, the Fantastic Four, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman? Where did you learn of them? Cartoons, comics, etc. Then again, email lists, chat groups, and internet are about as close to fantasy as some get, eh?

This was discussed on another list, so I'll just say that I think it could encourage young people in a totally different direction. Maybe I'll have to eat humble pie and read all of the books to find out because so many LDS people seem to be in favor of it. Don't you know that'll just irritate Protestant Fundamentalists worse than anything else? They'll think we're Satanists for sure!
