A vicar in Blackburn denounced D&D in the late 80s and I had a letter printed in the local paper calling him out for it - I'll see if I can find it!

I remember getting a talking to from my doctor when I was a kid because I said I liked D&D. Apparently it's a deadly gateway to satanism, fyi!

I think we'd just come out of the Beastie Boys will ruin your children phase at this time - I remember a lot of fuss around them in 1987/8.

Anyway just wanted to say the sentiment at the opening of the show was quite wonderful. The only downside to Fox getting married is that it breaks the dream that the pair of you would get it together... mind that might have been like when Maddie Hayes and David Addison (was it) got it together on Moonlighting - it'd be all downhill from there, so guess I should be grateful.

Luckily a true bromance can survive any trial or tribulation!

Found 'em! These were from The Lancashire Evening Telegraph, November 1984 - I think the D&D hysteria had died down by 88, it was all 'video nasties' by then. The leader of the local RPG group was reacting to the original story about the pastor's speech, which I don't have - try to ignore the dodgy sexual politics.

And yes, with 35 years of hindsight, my letter makes me cringe - I can hear the self-righteous tone of my use of the term 'self-righteous'. They edited out the end of my 2nd sentence, totally ruining the flow; and at the end I think I was channeling my inner old geezer :lol:
