LOL ---Wow! What a description.

It's funny how many of these younger punk/emo kids (obviously who this is being marketed to by description) mythologize about eighties D&D. It's the whole geek-sheik thing. The funny thing is I don't remember many kids who where punk rockers that played D&D. Sure there where a few now and then who played with us, but it was always on the fly between the Dead Kennedy's and Minor Threat shows.
Time has blurred the past and now we rule thanks to computer spaz (<remember this derogatory remark) becoming a serious bread winner in America. I've even used I play D&D as a pick up line on younger ladies out at the clubs. It's amazing the responses I've gotten. Most are very positive (could be the booze or just my good looks :lol: ), like—Oh I've played with my older brothers a few times and had so much fun, or That's so cool…….I go into a whole sepal about playing, collecting, the museum ideas etc…..It's about 75% positive remarks especially if the girl is artsy, gothic, or looks like a librarian. Go figure I still think of myself as a geeky D&Der, but hay that's what's in.

Not to be the language police, but I think you mean "geek chic", unless you're referring to middle-eastern geeks.

Hey, I might buy it just to pimp it, and keep it real.
No wonder the goddam country is going to shit. Bill Cosby hit the nail square on the head. I weep for the future.

More like "Good Lord, what happened to it?"  Honestly, I've run over D&D books with my car and they didn't look that bad.

Since when do barnyard animal noises become keywords for selling on ebay?

Hold on, I really don't want an answer to that, never mind....
