Fantastic look at the Satanic Panic surrounding D&D, via r/rpg
It was shortly after tthings like this were being published in the US that I left journalism in the UK. I wasn’t enjoying it very much. The last straw was being asked to write a front page story for a major newspaper that showed that D&D caused Satanism, Madness and Suicide. I said No, and stopped being a journalist.
I tell people that now, and they think I must be making it up. So its nice to see articles like this, and suddenly remember I’m not crazy.
