Pirates and Gamers Everywhere

When shellyinseattle and I were interviewing real estate agents, the gaming collection scattered around the house was a point of interest to one of the agent. He was a huge D&D geek, and he knew all the 2E settings and books. I'm not sure it was a point in his favor: smooth-talking sales serpents and imaginative, slightly compulsive gamers rarely inhabit the same body.

We hired the Real Estate Gamer anyway, since he was working with a partner who was a smooth-talker of the Old School.

Today, we signed on the closing. Our escrow agent was a nice guy, and gaming came up. Okay, it was introduced in about the same tone as folks usually throw out a gambit such as "How about them Seahawks?". It was a commonplace topic of conversation. As it turns out, Mr. Escrow stood in the cold for 12 hours for his Xbox 360, and he still has the character sheets from his D&D games years ago.

Yes, we've taken over. In marginally related news, the Pirates of the Caribbean 2 (Windows Media Format) trailer has leaked (hat tip to gmskarka). Grab a copy.

Update: Trailer is gone from that link. Also, further evidence of gaming supremacy: the Lego dungeon called Brickquest (via Boing Boing).

Nah, he was too late for that. He was at the Covington Fred Meyer. It had an allocation of 12 360s, and that was pushing it. Kind of a backwoods, drag-racing kind of neighborhood that's not too keen on the revenooers. :)
