A Fireball To The Skull

A Fireball to the Skull: a love story about mental illness and RPGs. "I’m convinced those rulebooks played an important role in my recovery. I think it’s because there’s order and optimism in RPG rulebooks. Rulebooks are the marriage of the natural order inherent in story structure and math, and pure, wild imagination." From the blog Robot Goblin: Overthinking Role Playing Games Since 1983. Robot Goblin is also on Twitter.

I would say that my mental health owes a tip of the hat to Gary Gygax et al for sure.
