This is a question How nerdy are you?

This week Gary Gygax, co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons, died. A whole generation of pasty dice-obsessed nerds owes him big time. Me included.

So, in his honour, how nerdy were you? Are you still sunlight-averse? What are the sad little things you do that nobody else understands?

As an example, a B3ta regular who shall remain nameless told us, "I spent an entire school summer holiday getting my BBC Model B computer to produce filthy stories from an extensive database of names, nouns, adjectives, stock phrases and deviant sexual practices. It revolutionised the porn magazine dirty letter writing industry for ever.

Revel in your own nerdiness.

Where to start....
I'm a Trekkie, I was into D&D and used to be very good at painting the 25mm lead figures, I've got signed copies of Fighting Fantasy books (Livingstone, Jackson and Iain McCaig) and now my new nerdish fixation is Warbook as it is with several other B3tards.


If anyone wants to join the Alliance gaz me.

Fighting Fantasy Books!
I bought Dead of Night on a daytrip to Bath once. Scared the shit out of me (I was 8). I still pick it up and have a go now and then!
