I first played Dungeons and Dragons in elementary school. I don't think I played more than a couple sessions, but I always liked the idea of role playing and adventuring, which is probably why I spent too many hours playing computer games throughout my youth and young adulthood.

Recently, a friend of mine asked if I wanted to play DnD. The game is enjoying a popular resurgence of sorts as nerd culture has morphed into pop culture and the Netflix show Stranger Things prominently featured the game.

As we adventured through forests and abandoned towers, fighting goblins, orcs, giants, and marauding humans, I imagined the players in their ordinary clothes role-playing their character for the camera.
