Lay RPG video games Because of the gaming aspect and the fantasy I wanted to read it but the religion part made me procrastinate on
this because I was unsure of how religious it really is It s not That I because I was unsure of how religious it really is It s not That I Agains A Uick Read I am agains A uick read a fun one It will probably make sense if ou have played a little dungeons and dragons uite some time ago in the town I was born in the YMCA ran some DD games and some local religious objected as do some people in the book They were not content to practice their believes they felt it was necessary to impose these believes on other people But the book is mostly a fun adventure I heard about this book and this author in an online discussion many ears ago but only managed to track down a copy of the book recently I had managed to find and enjoy others of Lubar s books but this one escaped me until I managed to borrow it from an online libraryAlas though I had enjoyed several other books by this author this one was a disappointment when I finally got round to reading it The central premise is an intriguing one a boy and his friends are keen players of Role Playing games similar to Dungeons Dragons and want to hold a tournament at the school for a fund raising venture but run into problems when one of their classmates suspects the game of satanic influence and writes a panic piece which is picked up by the local newspaper bringing religious protests against the school Where it fell down is how it all was all worked out A public meeting to discuss the matter gets hijacked by the protesters and debate is cut short before
Both Sides Get To Speak sides get to speak may be true to life but was nevertheless very unsatisfying to read about Then to add further complication actual wizards turn up and try to get the gamer boy whom they think is an actual wizard to help them return to their own world Real magic does take place and a disaster narrowly averted and et in spite of all this the boy who had written the piece against the game decides at the end that it is all harmless after all and that he will write a retraction for the newspaper and set things right Inconsistent people inconsistent story Not recommended except as a study of anti DDRPG sentiment. Of magic the press picks up on the story and Mercer finds himself being stalked by four real life wizards who are desperate for his help With his life suddenly in danger role playing takes on a whole new meaning for Mercer Dickense.
thought it was a bit of a cop out i also felt that the writing wasit was a bit of a cop out i also felt that the writing was little stilted this was overall very disappointing after reading Sleeping Freshman Never Lie i just felt that could have been done to deepen the plot like a true fear of the crazy religious picketers i did like Jenna one of the gamers i do think for all of the book s preaching about looking into both sides the main character did no study on why religious people might find gaming offensive not that i agree with those people but since that was the theme of the book the main character should have at least looked into it i also didn t like that the school bowed to religious pressure finally i thought that the main character continuously breaking appointments to work on a project with someone at the beginning of the book made me not terribly inclined to like him it was hard to establish a rapport and care about his life although i am an avid gamer and should have sympathized I have been thinking on and off about leaving a review for this book While I loved it my reasons are much personal than what I m normally willing to write about To start off with I have never played a game like the one Mercer plays but I do love to R Mage fighting to survive and gain wealth and power Mercer lives for the excitement of the game until one day when reality becomes even stranger than fantasy When a group of religious fanatics protest the game for its simulated use.
