As someone who played Dungeons and Dragons in my middle-school years, it warmed my heart to see Will make it his own.

Lucy has been attending the Tuesday game night at our local library branch with her friends for quite a while now, although they rarely D&D but instead play other board games. When Will moved back home, he was pretty eager to give it a go. He joined a running campaign, rolled himself a Ranger, and dug in.
Every time I bring him home he has fresh stories about defeating orcs and skeletons, falling out of trees, and sneaking through the woods, escaping death only by the skin of his teeth and the odd natural 20. I have some major nostalgia for this, and it’s fun to see him enjoying it as much as I did.
