So what does the word “Biblical” mean anyway?

In this case we are using the dictionary definition of an adjective meaning: “relating to or contained in the Bible.” I am certainly not saying that the Bible is a special reference book for the game of Dungeons & Dragons. However, I am saying that many of the stories within the Bible make for great adventures, story hooks, and material that can be translated easily into a fun D&D encounter.

I lived through the “Satanic Panic” so I know that some Christians out there believe that D&D is an evil game created by the Devil. However, when I was teaching a religion class in Powell, Tennessee back in 1994, I interviewed Anton Szandor LaVey.

Do you know what he said? He told me that he discouraged his fellow Satanic church-goers from playing D&D because it had too many influences from Christianity. Ironic huh?

Anyway, that’s what my posts about “Biblical D&D” will be about: using stories from the Bible to fuel your D&D campaign.

Stay tuned.
