I kind of want to run a Mouse Guard game set here.
In 1972, animal behaviorist John Calhoun built a mouse paradise with beautiful buildings and limitless food. He introduced eight mice to the population. Two years later, the mice had created their own apocalypse. Here's why.

"Hune-Brown cites another recent bit of evidence for the phenomenon: people with a strong belief in a just world, he reports, are more likely to oppose affirmative action schemes intended to help women or minorities. You needn’t be explicitly racist or sexist to hold such views, nor committed to a highly individualistic political position (such as libertarianism); the researchers controlled for those. You need only cling to a conviction that the world is basically fair. That might be a pretty naive position, of course – but it’s hard to argue that it’s a hateful one. Similar associations have been found between belief in a just world and a preference for authoritarian political leaders. To shield ourselves psychologically from the terrifying thought that the world is full of innocent people suffering, we endorse politicians and policies more likely to make that suffering worse."

Fascinating. I wouldn't have put that together, but the explanation makes sense.

History repeats itself, sadly. Cartoon from the 1940s.

Adorable sculpted dragons guard your 20-sided dice

Some dragons hoard gold and gems, but Becca Golins' tiny sculpted dragons guard a different treasure: gaming dice.

A bit grungy, and possibly not a neighborhood to walk through alone at night if you are the nervous type. Could be kept cleaner, but decent enough seating and escalators up and down.

A bit grungy, like some of the other older stations, but kept clean. Insufficient seating, though. No bathrooms because of "heightened security." My least favorite enclosed station.

The coffee is unexceptional, but acceptable. The ambiance is pleasant. A good place to study, or have a coffee and dessert with a friend.
