As someone who spent their 20s working various odd jobs to stay afloat, what advice would you offer to someone trying to enter into a career field, especially when compared to younger candidates fresh from university?

Do you feel that the autism diagnosis has been liberally administered in the past leading to faulty assessments? I once read that many of the traits associated with autism also bleed into ADHD, OCD, and other similar conditions.

For example, I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome when I was nine. While I won't deny I share a few traits associated with the diagnosis, I feel many of my quirks can be linked to personal anxiety. Of course, I might also be biased against the diagnosis because I had a mother who would constantly hold this label over my head.

Anyways, thank you for your work in increasing awareness on the needs of the autistic community. :)

What do you feel draws other nations to Afghanistan? Sure America's War on Terror might have been the reason for 20 year occupation of the country but it isn't the only country to have to have tried to control the region.

Best of luck!

This is really awesome. :)

D&D really helped me come out of my shell in college and deal with social anxiety. I'm pleased to see therapists embracing it as a tool.


Have you explored other systems outside of D&D, such as those outside a traditional sword and sorcery realm (e.g. Starfinder, Savage World)?
