Day 17: First time you heard that D&D was somehow "evil."
My grandmother threw a fit as soon as she saw the cover of the DMG. She was one of those old ladies who would sign her retirement checks over to Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, Oral Roberts, Robert Tilton, Kenneth Copeland, and a host of other proponents of Prosperity Theology. She had learned - on the PTL Club, I think it was, that the Beatles brainwashed children, Ouija boards held demons inside of them, that the Smurfs promoted homosexuality and necrophilia, and that Dungeons and Dragons was the preferred vehicle to proliferate Satanic worship.
She demanded that I turn over all of my D&D books to her so that she could burn them in a bonfire. Images of Opernplatz danced in my head. I refused. My mother backed me up. The lady did burn my mother's Ouija board though - in secret.
