Read an RPG Book in Public

Can't say it better than The Escapist's Read an RPG Book in Public.

Welcome to The Escapist, a web page devoted to the betterment of role-playing games and the education of the public and media of their benefits to society.

Tabletop role-playing games like Dungeons & Dragons are an engaging and intellectually stimulating activity that promote teamwork, problem solving, and creative thinking. Even better, in hands of a parent, guardian, or educator, they can be a fantastic teaching tool.

Too many "adult" gamers are embarrassed (or whatever excuse they claim in place of embarrassment) to strut their game geekness in public or even to non-gamer friends and family! Everyone's has a right to keep their secrets. Still, I say grow a pair and help our hobby get the legitimacy it deserves.

  3. Thanks for the link! The word is really getting around - in fact, there's been a lot of international response (I've started seeing tweets in Portuguese, Spanish, French, and Russian). I'm really happy to see it.
