Dark Dungeons by Jack Chick track
My kind of party …

Fundamentalist Christian publisher and cartoonist Jack Chick stoked the “Satanic panic” that vilified pop culture such as Dungeons & Dragons and just about anything invented after the 17th century with his “Chick Tracts.”

He died Sunday at the age of 92, according to The Associated Press. Insert your own tasteless barb here, because I’m not going to do it. It’s too easy.

D&D was just one of his many targets, and the least of them in the greater scheme of things, but the “Dark Dungeons” tract that painted the fantasy roleplaying game as a literal stepping stone to Hell is probably one of the better known examples of his work.
