This June, in the middle of the Iraq occupation, the first RPG convention will be held in a war zone.

"Here in Iraq, we do many things on the different Forward OperatingBases to help keep our spirits up," said SPC David Amberson, the Con'sorganizer. "Here at Camp Adder/Tallil Airbase, we have lots of sportsactivities -- baseball, football, dodgeball, kickball -- and we workwith many marathons across the US like the Boston Marathon. This is agreat way to improve morale among the troops, but what about those whoprefer Role-Playing Games?"


Big Name Geeks like muskrat_john and wilwheaton have been talking this up, saying what a wonderful thing this is, and pledging to donate game materials to be used as prizes.

I, um...

I think this is horribly inappropriate, and I'm embarassed for my hobby.

EDIT: Locking this, now. You didn't play nice.
