MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A man serving life in prison for first-degree intentional homicide has lost his legal battle to play Dungeons and Dragons behind bars.

Kevin T. Singer filed a lawsuit against officials at Wisconsin's Waupun prison after a policy was initiated in 2004 to eradicate all Dungeons and Dragons game materials among concerns that playing it promotes gang-related activity.

The 33-year-old Singer is a devoted player of the fantasy role-playing game that involves recruiting others to play as a group. He argued that his First Amendment rights were being violated and demanded that Dungeons and Dragons material confiscated from his cell be returned.

But the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that the prison's policy was reasonable.

"So Why did you stab inmate #43554?"

"Bitch hit me with a fireball...AGAIN! Even though tha punk ass KNEW I was out of surges!"

".........."

"That's how I roll. Snitches get stitches, and a -5 to all attack rolls!"

So if you can't play D&D in prison, what are you supposed to do all day?

Wait, can I paint miniatures?

That's what we were saying. imagine how much gaming you could get done!


"So, when are we going to tackle Keep on the Shadowfell, Ray-Ray?"

"I Don't know IcePick, I'm pretty busy with eating lunch in 4 hours...and I always devote a couple hours to not gettin' raped, but other than that, I'm free for the next 7- 10 years. 3 less if I change my alignment to Lawful good..."
