A while back I talked about player being synonymous with character.
One of my favorite examples of this is the Villains & Vigilantes 2nd edition's rulebook - 4.4 Designing Adventures, p. 32. It has these great tables of "Supernatural Events" and "Ordinary Crime" and "Revoltin' Developments!"
The best part is that they all say Player, not Character.
Hence the title of this post - that's #16 on the table, along with:
Player(s) Framed for a Crime.
Player(s) mistaken for Villains.
Secret Identity of Player(s) discovered.
The meaning here is totally clear. But it's not any less funny in an age after making clear distinctions between "player" and "character" as terms of art has taken hold. I can't wait to see what the Protectors books have along these lines.
In the meantime, though, I'll keep chuckling along as Player(s) [are] harassed by admirers thanks to a die roll.
