Welcome Back to the Labyrinth

"We have been away far too long, my friends," Ashoka declared, his face lit by the eldritch green glow of his staff. "But we have finally returned to the labyrinth whence our adventures first began."

"Just imagine the treasures that lie within," said Yun Tai, flexing his mighty muscles. "Wealth enough to live in luxury the rest of our days."

"And arcane artifacts of great power," added Ashoka his words dripping with avarice. "All ours for the taking!"

"Umm...guys?" Nysa interrupted. "Do you hear something dripping?"

D&D at the Royal Ontario Museum

I've long thought that roleplaying games would be an outstanding tool for museum programming and it turns out that some other visionary thought so, too, and actually made it happen.

The Royal Ontario Museum is hosting a Saturday morning D&D campaign for kids 11-14 years old, which utilizes material from the collections to teach kids about myths, monsters, and weapons of ancient cultures.  Talk about a great way to bring history alive!  I wish something like this had been around when I was a kid.

They never do anything cool around here like that. A few years ago I approached our local library about running a game in one of the side rooms they rarely use. They came up with several excuses, one of them being that they might need the room for something important. I go there fairly often and seen the rooms in use once over the past few years. The one librarian (a guy) said he was afraid it inspired to much controversy. I didn't feel like arguing. I just shrugged my shoulders and said its was too bad, that a library of all things, should shy away from something that might be controversial. People learning a game and having fun. We can't have such nonsense like that.

What's more is that someone is going to get paid for dungeon mastering! What a fun job.
