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.

I always wondered about the shoulderpads
Was it an '80s throwback thing, or just a place to keep their sandwiches. Same with Judge dredd and the kneepads...

Have to chastise you for the shoddy paintjob though. Surely you could have got a big-ass emulsion brush and drybrushed it a *bit*?

May I heartily recommend warhammer world (in Nottingham), if you haven't already been... I have a picture of me looking scared in front of the massive Uruk-hai. Fun times.
