Iain Murray, who generally writes about conservative politics (he's one of the more libertarian, hence better, writers at National Review's The Corner blog) has a secret: he loves old-school pen-and-paper roleplaying games.
If your mental image of "National Review writer" involves a young man from Nantucket wearing a blazer, fraternity pin, and high-tiders as he hoists the jib aboard the good ship "Inherited Fortune," prepare to have your preconceptions busted. Murray appreciates the goodness that is first and second edition Dungeons and Dragons, and agrees (with me anyway) that Greg Stafford's Runequest is one of the finest RPGs ever created. I just wish he'd cover my personal favorite, Marc Miller's Traveller. The blog is even written in campaign-form.
As perhaps the most prominent weblog in America that covers in equal measure law, politics, board and roleplaying games, and the merits and demerits of various swords for zombie decapitation*, we must encourage this sort of thing.
So visit Murray's blog, the Rune Under Water, and read about the horrible vengeance the Trolls of Pavis have in store for the Lunar Empire.
