Someone's dug up video of an attack on D&D by Win Worley, pastor at the Hegewisch Baptist Church in Highland, Indiana, in 1992.

The phrase "good fantasy" was superimposed. 

I don't know if it was ESPN or some other sports channel but I'm sure it was a sports channel.

Just another example of the jocks making fun of the geeks.

[CAR-PGa] Re: [new research project] RPG books in public libraries

Hi Ted,

Sorry I missed this.  Was just at the Fairfield library, but didn't have time to dig through the aisles.  Here's what's there: https://fair.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/default/search/results?qu=dungeons+dragons&te=

5E D&D and reprints of AD&D, go figure.

Hope that's helpful!

Mike

So, for this research project, I'm asking everyone reading this message to check your local public library and see what they have. Search for anything related to RPGs. Then, reply right here in this thread. Depending on your library system, you may be able to search their catalog online from home. Let's set the deadline as 24 July 2017. 

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

[CAR-PGa] university-level game design class







I work at the Georgia Institute of Technology. To be specific, I work in the Department of Professional Education. More than a year ago the department created an online course called Game On: Principles of Game Design. I was near the studio when they were making the videos. I saw a copy of Gamma World 1st edition, some D&D 3.5 books and the classic board game Civilization. There were some other games , as well.

If you go to the department website (pe.gatech.edu) you can do a search of the course name and get some details.

[CAR-PGa] Paul Cardwell



I meant to do this awhile ago and never did. 

I just wanted to thank Paul for being Chair for so many years and keeping it afloat for so long. He saw us through some contentious times. He deserves the gratitude of the entire group.

[CAR-PGa] Paperbacks from Hell by Grady Hendrix (ARC)

I obtained an ARC (Advance Reading Copy) of Paperbacks from Hell by Grady Hendrix and noticed several sections that discussed the Satanic Panic, including a two-page spread on Mazes and Monsters and its imitators. I am attaching a scan of related pages. It is all quite in our favor with the possible exception of the linking of Silence of the Lambs with the spike in FBI "serial killer" statistics, which is noted without any argument for exactly what happened there. (It doesn't claim that the books caused serial killers; the phrasing suggests to me that the FBI started classifying more cases as serial killers after they had entered the public consciousness, but this isn't made explicit.)

Because this is an ARC, the text is subject to change before final publication. Indeed, there were a number of "TK"s in the text, noting places that content needed filling in. I would encourage someone to grab a copy when it comes out, go through it more carefully, and update these scans.
