My Fantasy Character

During the euphoric days of the dot com boom of the 90s, I was exploring the grundgy fringes of humanity in Seattle. From a personal ad in the weekly alternative newspaper, I became acquainted with a motley group of intellectually stunted young men who gathered on the weekends to smoke massive amounts of pot and pretend to be wizards and elves while playing the fantasy game Dungeons & Dragons.

One winter I was invited to join the group in their latest quest. I immersed myself into their world for ten consecutive Saturdays of 5 to 6 hour sessions. As the game progressed, my character became increasingly obnoxious. Finally, the group had enough of my violent antics and they conspired to chop off my character’s head. Thus ended my antisocial experiment.
