Crossing geekdoms Can't Post

I've become addicted to a computer game called Fate, which is basically a virtual Dungeons & Dragons... I don't know why it's so habit-forming, but it is. One (or one's character) wanders through levels of a dungeon, bashing things and killing things and amassing gold and points (yes, it is indeed a guilty pleasure), and lots and lots of stuff.

Obviously the designers of the game were Tolkien geeks, because there are (of course) orcs, and giant spiders - - and this:



(Don't ask about the fish. It's a long story.)

There was also a Cheesehead, so they were geeks and football fans...


TheOneRing.net – where everybody knows your name!
And J.R.R. Tolkien’s middle names… and the name of his publisher’s son … and the name of Aragorn’s great-great-great- grandfather on his mother’s side… and what Frodo’s name almost was…

Yikes! That's as bad as [In reply to] Can't Post

that World of Warcraft my son's involved in. He keeps mentioning stuff from there that is so obviously lifted from Tolkien!

And it's apparently just as addictive, also...Shocked

I know what you mean.... [In reply to] Can't Post

I know exactly what you mean. I too have recently discovered the game "Fate". Yes it is easy to see the Tolkien references. I like seeing the unicorns and such.

And it is also a great stress reliever.
