by Thomas J. Misuraca

A fellowship of five thirtysomething friends have been playing Masters of the Dark Realm (a Dungeons & Dragons type roleplaying game) since high school. One night, their Game Master, Joel, and his wife, Nicole, announce that they’re going to have a baby, so it’d be a good time to end their game. Forever. Seeing how upset their friends are, Joel and Nicole decide to help them each find new, personal quests in their lives. Things don’t go as planned and bad feelings grow between them. Then when the fellowship is confronted with an unexpected tragedy, they must choose between giving up on reality, or pulling together to slay their personal dragons.
