Dark Dungeons - Chick Tract

Many years ago my wife and I came across some Jack Chick tracts. It had been years since either of us had seen them. I had forgotten about them completely up until that point. For the uninitiated they are a series of small two/three panel comics put out by what I believe to be an extreme Christian by the name of Jack Chick. Many of them are over-the-top and completely ridiculous and in turn hilarious. My wife bought me a ton of them and after reading through them we found there are some that are so classic and others not so great. Of the many I've read now, the one called Dark Dungeons is an all-time favorite.

Dark Dungeons is about the dangers of playing role-playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons. It's about some kids playing, seemingly unsupervised by their parents, with adults in the neighborhood. These adults just happen to be a witches coven and are recruiting kids to their cult through the game. They claim to be able to teach the kids real magic. Two of the girls in the story are heavy into the game. One girls apparently is casting spells to maker her dad buy her D&D game stuff and the other friend died in the game and is so saddened by this... kills herself. The other friend apparently sees the error of her ways. Below is a video someone put together with some sinister music, a computer voice and visuals from the comic. Enjoy.

Well now you see why we had to kill Black Leaf. She was a lightweight who couldn't be counted on to do the work without breaking down. She probably would have squealed to the cops.

We're having a celebration for Debbie tonight. Would you like to come? As the new Princess of Diana, she's being initiated by each of the high priests in turn.

Andy, yeah I think you're right. Black Leaf was a weak link in the chain. She's bound to let you down, one way or another.
