It's the hottest game of D&D this group has ever played before, and it just got a little too real... Andy Price is an average, nerdy gamer who likes to get together with his three best friends and play Dungeons & Dragons now and again, and his favorite characters to play as are busty bimbo seductresses... but only because he thinks it's funny. But when his pal James gets tired of being the DM and decides to try a special module that can "DM for the group", all of them get sucked into a magical fantasy realm where they're forced to play as their characters! Now, instead of cracking jokes, Andy finds that he actually has to get to... erm, "work"... using his newfound sexy seductress skills. Can he beat the module's challenges and rescue his group from this weird realm of terror, or will he be captured and sacrificed while stuck in the helpless body of this naughty, charisma-heavy bimbo?

To convince yourself or someone else that suicide isnt the answer, you must first accept this reality: For some people, it is the answer. When Frank Selden came home from a tour in Iraq, having been deployed as a member of the Washington Army National Guard, he was a changed man. He went from being a loving father, supportive husband, and proud soldier to someone who no longer loved his country or his own life. He lived for several years under a dark cloud and tried killing himself four times. He should have died each time, but something providential intervened. In The Suicide Solution, he examines how he regained his joy for living and initiates an honest discussion on suicide, including its benefits. Making blanket statements such as, There is nothing to gain wont do anything to prevent suicide among those who see it as an attractive option. With an average of twenty-two veterans killing themselves every single day and with suicide being the second leading cause of death in the 15 to 34 age group, its time to rethink suicide from the ground up.

• “Welcome to the journey. At each chapter you’ll have two paths to choose from. One is to continue on to the next chapter. The other is to put the book down and play the game. Follow the first option each time. I guarantee that when you finish reading the book and play the games they’ll be more fun because you’ll appreciate what went into the creation of them.”—Leonard Herman, author of Phoenix IV: The History of the Videogame Industry • “Patrick delivers a refreshingly sober look at video game development through the context of his interviews. The stories these legends of the game industry tell are full of disappointment and excitement – failure and success. The stuff video games are made of. The stuff of life.”—Jeffrey Paquette, designer, KROOM • “Patrick Hickey Jr. doesn’t just parrot off the facts like other books in the field, he does his homework, digs deep, and asks the right kind of questions. When you read this book chock full of interviews with those in-the-know you will undoubtedly be pleased!”—Michael Thomasson, author of Downright Bizarre Games: Video Games that Crossed the Line Featuring interviews with the creators of 31 popular video games—including Grand Theft Auto, Strider, Maximum Carnage and Pitfall—this book gives a behind-the-scenes look at the origins of some of the most enjoyable and iconic adventure games of all time. Interviewees recount the endless hours of painstaking development, the challenges of working with mega-publishers, the growth of the adventure genre, and reveal the creative processes that produced some of the industry's biggest hits, cult classics and indie successes.
