Let me start off by saying that I am a certifiable nerd. No seriously, I’ve been playing Dungeons and Dragons since I was fourteen;  I read the Hobbit when I was twelve;  and I’ve spent the last four years raiding with my currently level eighty-five blood-elf.  I look the part too. I’m average height and a little pudgy; I have brown curly hair, glasses, and frequently wear t-shirts emblazoned with some reference to Harry Potter, Star Wars, or Doctor Who.  Now I want it to be clear that while I am no stranger to fantasy, I am still grounded in the real world, contrary to popular belief.  I may be a nerd, but I am not deluded into thinking that magic is real. Well, at least I wasn’t.
