General Discussion / Dungeon & Dragons games in the strangest places
« on: January 13, 2017, 10:28:06 AM »
I was reading up on Chelsea Manning because quite frankly I didn't pay much attention when the controversy first erupted. So playing catch up, since she is back in the news, I started reading various news article written about her. It was then that I came across a recent article in the New York Time "Chelsea Manning Describes Bleak Life in a Men’s Prison". Surprising when reading the article I came across this paragraph.

"Her cell door has a window looking onto a central “day room” with tables, chairs, pay phones and televisions. For a time, Ms. Manning played Dungeons & Dragons with a few fellow inmates, but she said she had had no time in recent months. She eats meals with other inmates in a dining facility and works on a team at the wood shop."

Did I read that correctly? Dungeons and Dragons in prison?

After reading that I could only think of was, what edition are they playing?

General Discussion / Conan the Barbarian Movie 1982
« on: April 22, 2016, 01:39:32 PM »
I was listening to an old episode of The Cromcast Podcast and they were discussing the 1982 Conan the Barbarian Movie. They went through the whole movie giving a great synopsis. When they reached the end of the movie they shocked me with a scene I had never seen. They said that Conan and the Princess after the battle in the runes sneak back into the temple at the mountain of power.  Conan kills Thulsa Doom. Then after burning the temple at the mountain of power, Conan and the Princess walk off into the sunset. In my VHS copy the last time we see the princess is when she is chained to a big rock at the big battle. My version cuts out any scene with the princess after that. In my version Conan returns to the temple, kills Thulsa Doom, burns the temple, Conan on the throne, end of movie. Were extra scenes added to the DVD or was it part of the original theatrical release cut from the VHS version?

General Discussion / D&D reference in popular media
« on: February 01, 2016, 11:11:10 AM »
The show Duck Dynasty made a D&D reference on their Season 9, Episode 6 "Renaissance Men".
The guys throw a Renaissance Fair birthday party for Godwin and in the open title for the scene down below it was titled "Advanced Duckman & Dragons".
