Hardcover, 276 pages

“Dungeons & Dragons is not a game that you necessarily win, or that even has an endpoint,” Ewalt says. “What you’re trying to do is grow your character over time, become more powerful, and tell a story.”

You know, I started to really fetishize those pieces of paper! This paper is important, this is my friend, this is my hero!
