Chapter 9, Page 8 Hexagonal graph paper

Dad has misgivings.

For those of you who aren't in the know, Mary has just discovered something that has certain groups screaming about Satanism and witchcraft.

...

I just realized that doesn't narrow it down much.

So, who played D&D? Her dad??

And, naturally, I had it in with the other supplies. Yeah, this is not your 50th percentile American family.

@Jerry: Dad. Most definitely Dad.

@Dad: Well, it makes perfect sense to store hexagonal graph paper with the other sorts of graph paper and note pads. Or are you referring more to just having it in the first place?

Brigid,

I'm not at all sure how many American families have stock of hexagonal graph paper on hand. It'd be an interesting study.

Bizarrely enough, I teach Blueprint Reading and Technical Drawing (among other things), and we need the hex graph paper for isometric drawing.

So I have some here...

Never had any problem with my folks thinking it was satanic or the like. Nope. My parents just thought it was a waste of time. ^^ (And that was back in the times of First Edition.)

Sadly, my AD&D group broke apart after two of my oldest-time players divorced in RL and the group was divided up as part of the divorce proceedings. As GM, I was given to the husband along with the newest player; you know, the worthless things that the ex-hubbies always get. ^^

@Jerry: Well, that makes sense.

@Robert: Ouch. >.< Harsh.
