The Geeks return to the realm of Dungeons & Dragons after a daring and successful mission in our last episode. This week, the Geeks enter "The Forgotten Realms" only to encounter Elminster himself, Ed Greenwood.


Join Steve, Erik, Mark, David and special guest Ed Greenwood as they talk about "The Forgotten Realms,"  roleplaying games, and how it all came to be. Where did the idea come from? What are some great fantasy books that people may not have heard about? How do you get kids into roleplaying games? And why shouldn't clerics kick cats?


Find out on Geeks with Kids.
