Or other tabletop role-playing games

Today's Topic – How Worldbuilding, Gamemastering, and playing role-playing games will make lives better

Imagine back decades in a family that has its roots in rural religious America then imagine the terror of a young boy hearing the pastor of your church tell your mother that your new love Dungeons and Dragons were evil and I must stop playing it. Join Michael and I as we look at how playing these games helped us develop into good humans.
