Dungeons & Dragons is back in the geek limelight again. For many of us lifelong players, it never left, but a cursory look at Twitch and YouTube shows that it is seeing a resurgence and popularity like never before. Shows such as Geek & Sundry’s Critical Role, Wizards of the Coast’s Dice, Camera, Action, and Misscliks are helping expand D&D throughout geek culture and beyond.
