Shhh. Don’t tell anyone – I play Dungeons & Dragons. This is my first full character – The Warforged Warlord.

Despite the stigma’s surrounding the game, it’s an incredibly fun way to spend a Sunday evening, without gambling your money away, which is a sentiment that has borne the motto – “It’s Poker Night for Nerds.” I really enjoyed playing this character. The unfortunate thing about him was, in order to set up his entrance into the game, I was given another character that was intended to die in the first encounter.
