Daily Sketch – 16/01/07

skb022In my search to become a knowledgeable tabletop gamer over the holidays, I sought out some of the craziest, funniest, and most epic stories from the RPG scene I could find. Way near the top of the list, and at the very top in terms of humour, was the tale of Old Man Henderson.

I cannot find the words to describe the sheer hilarity and off-the-wall chaos that is Henderson’s story. I recommend you read it for yourself; even those who have no clue how a tabletop game is run will find themselves agape at the story of how one determined gamer created a character that threw a carefully structured mystery story into an all out war against the Elder Gods.
