I really thought we were far past this crap, but apparently I was wrong. Taylor High School in Taylor, Texas has a Dungeons & Dragons Club that is now in danger of being abolished because of the School Board feels that the game, "Promites Death and Violence."
Sigh...It's like a time warp back to the 80s. Fortunately, some more sensible people are stepping forward and attempting to get the school board to see reason. So it looks at though there is some hope that things will have a happy ending, but it really makes you shake your head.
Thanks go out to WJ Walton of the Escapist for spreading the news about this issue. He also made a great video (seen below) to present some of the reasons that RPGs are not only fun, but help to better people in several important way.
