Show & Tell #59

I sent in our pre-registration forms for Total Con today. Its a gaming convention in late February that we go to every year.

One of the things we signed up for is this special event:

"Special Event: G[uest]O[f]H[onor] Frank Mentzer will be
running the First D&D module ever printed
in 1976 "Palace of the Vampire Queen" as
run at Gary Con 1, the first convention to
commemorate the passing of Gary Gygax
and will be offering special signed souvenir
certificates for those who play this event."

And that got me thinking about one of my favorite combinations: Futurama and D&D:

I like the line "I"m a tenth level Vice President!"

I have no idea about D&D but my hubby is a big fan! Have fun at the convention!

That is really cool. Years ago when my mom was teaching a high school Sunday School class, she had them write a whole Dungeons & Dragons game based on the old testament. It was really amazing.
