The Dork Age
“Ethan has an old grudge against me,” Giles explained. “We were both rebels at University, and we joined the Dungeons and Dragons club together.”
“Wow, serious rebellion there, Giles,” Willow grinned.
“You played D & D? Was that with the three original booklets, or Advanced?” Xander asked.
“The original with the Greyhawk supplement. But that’s not important right now. I was a Paladin, and Ethan played as a tenth level Chaotic Evil Wizard.”
“Sounds pretty much in character,” Buffy remarked.
“Indeed. And, inevitably, I slew him. Now he wants his revenge.”
“I do,” Ethan said menacingly. “Go for your dice.”
