The Laughing DM is my personal web site.

What’s this blog about?  Well, lots of things.  Whatever I feel compelled to write about, actually.  You’ll find entries regarding music, food, movies, software, software development, books, politics … anything that I find interesting.  The opinions expressed on these pages are mine (unless they’re in a comment) and they do not represent my employer or any other entity.

What does the phrase “The Laughing DM” mean?  It comes from the Dungeons & Dragons role playing game that was invented by the late Gary Gygax.  I’ve played D&D for many, many years with a group of good friends.  We run two campaigns, one of which is mine.  In our group we’ve always known that when the Dungeon Master begins to laugh a bit that the players have stumbled upon an encounter that isn’t going to go well for them.

Behind the screen you hear the clatter of dice. The Dungeon Master begins to laugh. What do you do?
