Been listening to the audio version of the Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. Very good satire written from the perspective of the Undersecretary of the Devil to a Jr. Taunter named Wormwood who is not least of all Screwtape's nephew. Classic stuff! I really like how the man who is to be damned is referred to as 'the patient' throughout the prose. We can learn a lot from reading this story. We can ultimately use the method of the demon tempter and the uncle Screwtape to make our villains more methodical and more devilish. As a Christian I recommend the book. As a game master I recommend the book. Even if you are not a Christian or a believer at all you can get a lot of ideas from reading it. Then use it to taunt your own patients. I daresay it would be devilish fun.I plan on putting some of the ideas together with ideas from Interview with the Vampire to really let the Dragonlance party have a challenge!
