I'm not really sure about the tone here. We've got Drizzt, Bruenor and so on (I presume) and yet this we have people giving the finger as they sink into lava, giants (?!) with jamming on guitars, heavy-metal style and so on. I mean it's kind of fun but kind of weird.

VideoGamer: Whose Drizzzt?
D&D Fanatic: First of all, it's who is not whose. Second, Drizzzt is a major character from the D&D Forgettable Realms novels.
VideoGamer: lol, wait...this is a D&D game?
D&D Fanatic: Seriously? Its in the title!

D&D Fanatic: .....................
