The Caffeinated Penguin

musings of a crackpot hacker

Well, it finally happened…

Posted By on June 6, 2011

I showed my Shadowrun book to a guy at work, and even let him borrow it for a couple of days.

He returned it, and asked me “But what about all those people who take it too seriously and hanged themselves when their character died”.

Dude? Really? You play guitar in a rock band – do you really believe Alice Cooper or Ozzy Osbourne made kids do bad things?

However, he got me thinking – I know the origin of the tale is the Jack Chick “Dark Dungeons” tract, and there is a Tom Hanks movie “Mazes and Monsters”, but are there any ACTUAL documented cases of folks taking it too far?
