Wish me luck

Actually, it was D&D that made me a Pagan Goat Killer.


One minute I was a nice god-fearing Jewish boy, then five minutes after taking the shrink wrap off of my D&D basic set in 1978 it was POW! PAGAN GOAT KILLER!


Damn your eyes, Gygax! DAMN YOUR EYES! Although I suspect it was the novelty of playing with a d4 for the first time that really did it.

Come now, it was the d10 and you know it. A d4 can only give you a spread of four but, see here! the d10 can give you a spread of 1-10 OR, combined with another die, a spread of 1-100. Clearly, it is more magical.

Phosphor speaketh much wisdom. Indeed, the fell power of the pyramid seems a logical conduit for dark forces. A d10, OTOH, seems faintly benign.


In any case, the cover art on the Keep on the Borderlands sent me finally on a downward spiral. Destination: Hell.


Conclusive proof of the evil inherent in fantasy role-playing games.
