My name is Tracy Hurley and I am a gamer. For those who don't know, while I've always been around gamers and Dungeons & Dragons, for a long time I didn't play. I was nervous about playing the game wrong or not being welcome at the table. Then I listened to the hilarious Penny Arcade/PvP actual play podcasts and fell in love. Who knew you could make dick jokes while rolling dice? (My friends held out on me.) Since we were already hosting my husband's D&D group at our house and he had wanted me to play forever, I decided to surprise him and join in the game. After a few weeks of intrigue and character creation, I joined the Dewey, Killem, and Howe adventuring company as Sarah Darkmagic, an homage to Gabe's character Jim Darkmagic.
