Khas said:I laugh at those who call D&D evil. It certainly isn't, but it seems TOO fun. Has this ever happened to anyone?
I wouldn't sweat it. I mean, are you skipping work to game? Are you buying minis and dice instead of paying your rent? Are you insisting that your lady friend call you Balkor the Impailer when you two are in the sack?
Even if you answered yes to any of those, I wouldn't say you were an addict. I'd just say you need to make better choices.
Regarding the limited conversation topics. You, like me, are a man. If a conversation doesn;t involve my hobby (D&D), sports, or work, I'm really not into it. Men aren't world class conversationalists. That's why we grunt, point, and hine the pratice of selective deafness to an artform.
