Panel from Dark Dungeons by Jack T. Chick (1984)

Facing down a dragon in a fantasy game is relatively easy - you've got your dice, you've got established rules, and you've got a Dungeon Master to help adjucate the results of the battle. 

Facing down the troubles outside of the game - the troubles that surround the game and threaten to disturb or destroy an awesome hobby - is far more difficult. There are few established rules or facts to guide the way; instead, there are a multitude of opinions that have been clashing for most of gaming's history. In the end, you get to decide what you think of gaming, of gamers, and of the situations that can be detrimental to the enjoyment of the game.

The articles below are meant to address some of the troubles that linger around gaming as a hobby.
