For those outside of my small quadrant of the nerdsphere, White Dwarf was a magazine founded in 1977, dedicated to fantasy role playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons, Traveller and Runequest. Don't know what I'm talking about? Indulge me - your adolescence was probably more well adjusted than mine and you won't have dusty boxes of lead miniatures and gaming magazines in your loft that you can't quite bear to part with. Flicking through some old copies recently, the small ads raised a wry chuckle. Fantasy stereotypes are a reality. I used to work in one of these places, but you'll have to guess which one.
