There was time, friends, when those among us who played Dungeons and Dragons were ostracized, our 12-sided die like scarlet letters indicating nerd status and sure virginity. But no longer! Wizards, goblins, magic, and games for the throne are more popular than ever. It’s time to rise from the shadows! Pop Culture Paradise, a purveyor of fine comic books located in downtown Tempe, offers free D&D sessions every Wednesday from 7 to 10 p.m. ‘Tis a fine place for battle. (Plus, as any good geek would know, Wednesday is new comic day, so you can pick up your favorite books while building charisma points.) So come! Gather ye broadswords, don ye robes of destruction, and be sure to bring extra Mountain Dew.
The battles continue at 715 South Forest Avenue. Call 480-557-6640 or visit www.popculture-comics.com for more.
