A fellow player, named Steve, came up with a brilliant deadpan line:

"So I was playing Dungeons and Dragons yesterday...  with Liv Tyler."

Repeatedly now, I've borrowed Steve's line...

The first time, I was at a downtown party.  Telling a fashionable chick that I play D&D.  She looked so appalled; embarrassed for me.  I thought of Steve's joke and went for it.  The results were perfect.  I spun some bs about playing-with-Liv, until I couldn't keep a straight face anymore. When I admitted it wasn't true, the chick admitted that she was about to ask if she could join the game!

So there you have it.  All we gotta do is have Liv Tyler tell everybody she plays rpgs & all stigma will evaporate.  Or else, you'll have to be willing to lie.

"yeah, I was late to the game yesterday. And there was this new player. We weren't introduced. Everybody assumed I knew her.  They only called her by her Elf's name. She did look familiar.  I tried not to stare, but she was so sexy. Then she got a cell call & had to leave early. Somebody said "Goodnight, Liv", and it hit me:  Liv Tyler!?!  Turns out she went to college with ________. While on location in New Zealand, she joined the Expert Set campaign that Peter Jackson DM'ed for all his actors.  She got hooked..."

Months later, I really-did see Liv Tyler in a restaurant & tried to slip her a business card with "Do you want to play Dungeons and Dragons with us?" scrawled on the back.  No response yet.


The moral of this story is that the Lord Of The Rings made so much money, that Hobbits & Orcs are now taken seriously.  No need for the closet anymore, if that's what you're into.

But if your games are about raw emotional thematic collaboration/  that still sounds kinda pansy.  Better claim you're an evil half-orc wizard in your spare time, instead.
