    Every word is true. But the eighties were worse 😀

      Nah, we believed the world would one day belong to us. People started to notice and fear us. Then the 90s happened.

        DnD?!? Good Lord your child is worshipping ancient evil forces! You let them get into that cult? I know it just looks like a bunch of nerdy kids rolling dice and quoting “Monty Python” but it’s evil!

          You joke but my uncle saw my Chaos bloodletters from fantasy and thought I was into satanic worship.

          • Dennis J. Pechavar

            I’m not joking sadly. One of my friends had to talk to his minister to make sure he knew how dangerous DnD was. Sorry for you as well.

            Those days were stranger, and so were the things.

    Brilliant ……sounds just like my dad and his Oldhammer mates when they get together for a game and the home brew starts flowing!

    Nineties…. Pffftttt… Luxury compared with the long lost days from a bygone era when I first gamed.

  • dave long island

    No need to bring up dead kitties… My Key Key Honeybunches Sweetums will never die. You hear me god???

  • Damistar

    You had dead kittens? Bah, we would have loved to have kittens for terrain. We had rocks and were grateful to have them!

    The good olde days; when, if you took your Chaos Dreadnought out of the house, you could be arrested for carrying a deadly weapon.

    “But, officer, I carrying it in a sock to protect the paint job, honest!”

  • Chad Underdonk

    I was there. It’s true. All of it, true!
