So The Internets are all a-flutter with NERD RAGE because the Commonwealth of Virginia has banned D&D from prison.

Ostensibly because it mimics gang structure, with the DM as gang leader.

Well, obviously, the second half of that sentence is ridiculous. But the overall idea? I'm not so sure.

Is anyone going to claim that the Fundamental Narrative of D&D is anything but: a group of people go breaking and entering. Once inside, they divest the occupants of their possessions, usually by means of extreme violence?

And as for the gang structure, who here has a problem putting D&D classes on "Tank" and "Tiny" the muscle, "Fingers" the second-story man, "Face" the confidence man, "Doc" the medic, and "Crazy Eddie" the demolitions expert?
