Back when Dungeons and Dragons first came out it was seen as a threat, something to be feared. There was a full on movement involving Christian groups and a terrible Tv movie that starred Tom Hanks that warned us how this innocent game was going to turn us all into Satanic madmen. But now DnD has found a new home in modern Nerd culture, we have a near endless supply of books, several shows, video games and the community even has its very own celebrities. DnD is here to stay and people better get used to it.
