Next up, D&D "fighter" character's player sues "assassin" character's
player for stabbing him in the back while fighting the monster. the
crime was witnessed by a magician character who cast a spell.

and small children playing "indians" have "cowboy" players charged with
genocide in World Court. charges were dismissed on the grounds that
Americans have declared they aren't subject to the law.
