From Mio Magee ’18:
Unleash the geek and warrior within you… Audition for She Kills Monsters! She Kills Monsters is a one-act comedic romp about a considerably average young woman who finds a Dungeons and Dragons game module her deceased teenaged sister had left for her. She battles in the fantasy world alongside her sister’s D&D character, combatting demons, homicidal faeries and three-headed dragons. Hilarity and epic swordfighting ensue.

If you’re a little geeky you might be aware of (or still mourning) the recent death of Gary Gygax, the creator of supremely nerdy roleplaying game Dungeons & Dragons.
Wired editor Adam Rogers explains how D&D shaped the young minds of socially impaired kids everywhere, giving them the training and confidence to eventually take over today’s wired world – especially since D&D’s influence is everywhere from World of Warcraft, to the prevalence of intricate pseudoscientific TV shows like Lost, to the virtual co-opting of socialization through Facebook.
I don’t think I was ever secure enough in my nerdiness to know what D&D was all about, but this is pretty interesting – and might go a ways in explaining why people in PAC lab get so raucous over this weird online game when it’s the last day before spring break and I just want to finish my midterm papers.
