D&D is eeeevil!

Timothy Brannan earlier posted a couple of nifty videos from the 1980's "D&D is evil" craze. I thought I'd post a few photos of a bit of my own collection of "Satanic Panic" memorabilia, specifically the D&D thingamabobs.


The one at the top, I think we're all familiar with ("NO! NOT BLACK LEAF! NO! NO! I'M GOING TO DIE!"). And the 80's clothes are spot-on. But the one on the right (subtitled "Adventure or Abomination?") was published by Pat Robertson's Christian Broadcasting Network back in 1992. It's just a pamphlet, but you can hopefully read at least part of it below:


"The Truth About Dungeons & Dragons" is a much more substantive work (91 pages, published in 1991). Here's a page taken at random:


Heh. I'll spare you the more Pagan or Satanist oriented pieces of my collection (books like Painted Black), but some day I might recount my time as a featured guest on Talk Back with Bob Larson. :-)
