December 4, 2018 (La Mesa) - Dungeons and Dragons, geek world, are popular today but not so much in Athens, Ohio back in 1995. Today we live in a world where monsters are cool and everyone identifies with being a hero. Back then, geeks, people who did not fit in, would escape into a world of their own, a game called Dungeons and Dragons, to become strong and brave, heroes, masters of their own fate.
