 Dungeons and Dragons (conveniently capable of being abbreviated to D&D) is a religion popular among pale, unpopular teenagers. ​ Its popularity peaked in the 1980s, but it has since sunk from world religion status, though it retains a significant (though not socially significant) following. ​ D&D religious symbology includes dragons, magical daggers, little people (less correctly known as dwarves), thieves, wizards, and abandoned little-people mine shafts. ​ Prayer meetings are small and held in private but are taken quite seriously by those who practice D&D; they typically revolve around the transubstantive carrying-out of quests by invoking various figures from D&D mythology. ​ Followers of D&D share similarities with the 17th century Anabaptists in that they are shunned by the wider world; adoption of the religion entails a separation from society for the sake of a higher spiritual purpose. Dungeons and Dragons (conveniently capable of being abbreviated to D&D) is a religion popular among pale, unpopular teenagers. ​ Its popularity peaked in the 1980s, but it has since sunk from world religion status, though it retains a significant (though not socially significant) following. ​ D&D religious symbology includes dragons, magical daggers, little people (less correctly known as dwarves), thieves, wizards, and abandoned little-people mine shafts. ​ Prayer meetings are small and held in private but are taken quite seriously by those who practice D&D; they typically revolve around the transubstantive carrying-out of quests by invoking various figures from D&D mythology. ​ Followers of D&D share similarities with the 17th century Anabaptists in that they are shunned by the wider world; adoption of the religion entails a separation from society for the sake of a higher spiritual purpose.
