What is this world coming to?

"A Wisconsin man serving life in prison for murder has lost his legal battle to play Dungeons & Dragons behind bars. Kevin Singer had claimed his right to free speech was violated--but prison officials said the game promoted gang-related activity"

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

 Gang-related activity? Could this be the tender beginnings of the dread TPK gang?

I saw something about that, but there was something about the game promoting fantasies of escape.

Gang related activity, huh?

Hahaha, my gang of braces and glasses wearing roleplaying thugs is most fearsome indeed!

Not to mention those Bleak Wooders... They scare the crap outta me!
