Game and Story Use

  • Warn them as much as you like, there will almost always be one player character who lets his curiosity get the better of him. He can then be used as an object lesson to establish the mood.
  • Note that Man is capitalised. This trope has nothing to do with the differences between various colours of paint, or the point of designer shoes.
