This could work for so many different games. Call of Cthulhu, Monster of the Week, Urban Shadows, World of Darkness off the top of my head.

Neighbors say the glass spiral moves if you look into it for long enough. They also say you should never do this, as it will drive men mad. Others merely point to the suspicious absence of beggars and rats. Never refuse a beggar on the steps of this church, or ill luck will follow you like a robber in the alleys.

Online shopping for Gen Con Strategy Board Games Deal of the Day from a great selection at Toys & Games Store.

I love doing this with my campaigns. Each one is in the cover for a binder full of game notes.

Dyed-in-the-wool office supplies/organizational nerd, right here.

+Jim White I found all of them through simple image searches! Game title + "logo".

I had to edit the D&D logo to black and white from solid red.

This is my favorite song off of High Country so far. A lot of the new album seems to have a bit of country influence but this track definitely has that old crunchy guitar hanging out in between the twang.

+Tim Gray Niiiiiiiiiice. I haven't actually played/run a game in ages, but I feel like that's the kind of harsh life lesson they'd have to learn the hard way >:)

This goes for everyone. Think your "side" doesn't do it? Think again.
 
I really, really want people to read this article. Like, so much. It is so important, and so just... true

"Because mob justice does not work by any consistent system of determining guilt or assigning punishment, in theory anyone can be targeted. Of course, the formal justice system can make mistakes as well. Often, those mistakes are rooted in systemic inequities such as disproportionate sentencing for people of color. But at least the formal justice system is designed to give people the means to redress those mistakes and to reform systemic issues.

The fact that mob justice lacks these mechanisms is not a coincidence. It is built into the very practice, because the mob is not about justice in the abstract sense of furthering society's collective good. Rather, it is about pursuing vendettas — for example, Gamergate's fury at the growing role of women in technology, or Reddit's open hatred of people who are overweight — or about simply indulging the mob's desire for blood.

If the mob just so happens to pick a target that we find despicable, such as Palmer, that does not make their actions "justice." Condoning it as such, or even shrugging it off as not such a big deal, allows these behaviors to take root. That has more significant consequences than just convincing more people on the internet that online harassment campaigns are acceptable. These campaigns build on one another as they develop systems of organizing. Their participants have learned to leverage mass community sites like Reddit and 4chan as platforms to launch and fuel mob campaigns, and to learn and disseminate effective harassment tactics. If online harassment is a skill, there are now more and more places to study it.

That puts all of us in danger. The mob is free to decide on its own what does and does not constitute a crime — being a woman who works in technology or journalism, for example, or having the wrong religion —and any one of us could someday be implicated in such an "offense." And even if the mob targets acts that are indeed criminal, it is all too easy for them to get it wrong."

Cecil the lion's death was awful. But the campaign of mob justice against his killer should worry everyone.

Exactly. You could be right, and mob "justice" is still an abomination.

Otherwise, your only argument with GamerGate is that they didn't target the people you think deserved it.
