Proof: In the Time of the Ancient Greeks… There Were Ancient Geeks

Capture

 

Archeologists (not Indiana Jones…that guy was a treasure hunting grave robber) have uncovered the oldest D20 known to man.

Let’s go back in time. Way back. Keep going. OK, stop. You’re in the Ptolemaic Period. It’s somewhere around 304 to 30 B.C. You’re in Egypt. You’re playing Dungeons & Dragons. Except back then, it’s more like Pyramids & Petsuchos.

While I am sure it was probably used for some kind of paeagan sacrifice ritual, I choose to believe that on a Friday night in 200 B.C. Jimmicus, Ryanatis, and JENNY were sitting around playing Caves and Lizards while drinking a 2 liter bottle of Shaman Pepper, and eating locusts.
