Due to my history, I shouldn't be laughing as hard as I am, but Big Theft Ends In Shackles For Goth Couple is amusing. And that the "mastermind" was a D&D dungeonmaster whose first words were along the lines of "Where did my plan go wrong?" is well, typical.
I speak from experience that people who spend roughly 50% of their non-sleeping time involved in fantasy roleplay tend to have a bit of trouble navigating the real world and often don't even realize it. When you spend a lot of time controlling outcomes and creating a world and story, you get a little drunk and delusional on the power. I used to know a lot of people like that, thanks to the ex.
