I mentioned the other day that my gaming is predominately, 6 of 8 I think LDS (aka Mormon) .
This is largely an accident (my buddy brought in his friends from church and school) as I am not a member myself.
In case anyone is wondering what effect thats had on gaming. Well its been a pretty positive one.
The religion hasn't crept into play other than one the whole, the players trying to stick to the "good" as vs the neutral which is a benefit in my opinion.
Also many of the players had been on Missions (that the part where the guys looking like IBM sales reps go door to door to spread the Gospel) and had a good idea how to work and play with all kinds of people, it made the game go much smoother. That travel also made them bit more erudite than many Gamers.
Because of that and the fact that their parents and faith encourage education it makes for a very good group, especially for people I've only known a short time.
So in the event you guys (and ladies!) are reading, I appreciate y'all. You make gaming a lot more fun.
