(ME) Dungeons & Dragons

~~~~ Just curious Mark, you did the pilot of the D&D. A couple of
questions. (BTW, I used to love that show)
How much research did you do into D&D and AD&D as source info?
Were there big problems with the network due to the supposed "D&D
related suicides" etc. Not to mention that a lot of the content of the
role playing game dealt with the occult etc. ? (If indeed you did have
to tiptoe around that stuff, you did a good job, it got me interested in
fantasy enough to become a voracious reader, without feeling patronized
by the lack of serious occult reference in the show. -- in other words,
after I had played AD&D, I didn't feel that the cartoon was watered down
I ask because I've always been a big supporter of AD&D and it's ability
to expand a child's imagination and problem solving skills. When played
right, (ie. more in depth mystery/problem solving than hack and slash
killing) RPGs are a great tool for kids. The whole suicide uproar was
a farce in my opinion. A few disturbed kids play D&D and take it too
seriously and it ends up fueling an already diseased mind... anyway...
thanks for being part of a show that made me want to go out and learn
more about fantasy... which led to learning about history, writing, and
a ton of other things including improving my art skills.
