Ben and I have been discussing a DnD campaign for some time and this year it finally took off. The game has had a major resurgence of late beyond its traditional crowd – Shamini picked it up entirely independently (and she ran a fun one-shot earlier in the year). The 4th and 5th editions have provided an increasingly flexible template for collaborative storytelling and character development in any kind of world or scenario so it appeals as much to the creative as to the nerdy.
