A researcher is looking for personal experiences relating to D&D and Satinism.
Or to be more precise, personal experiences where someone has genuinely thought there is a connection between your gaming habit and the worship of Beelzebub.
I am writing a paper on the folklore of gaming (and D&D in specific). I am looking at the popular and widespread belief that D&D (or gaming) leads people to satanism or some form of evil occult worship.
If you don’t mind me asking, if you have encountered this, I have a few questions for you.
a. What have you been told about gaming = Satan?
b. How often have you heard this?
c. Who told you?
d. What was the story?
e. Did you explain your point of view to the person who told you?
i. If so, tell me the story of it.
f. Has this outside opinion changed you or your participation in the game?
