Derby #229: Roleplaying in Everyday Life

Hey, this Derby's over. When you're finished reliving past glories, check out what's going on in the Derby right now. It's probably even cooler. Or at least newer.

Oh, admit it. We've ALL done it. There's no shame in it. So you experimented in college a little. Who cares? It's 2011, everybody plays an RPG of some kind these days. Wait, you thought we were talking about- Oh. Awkward. Well, no judgment either way. Anyway, this week we want you to cross the streams of geekery and everyday life. Give us your best ideas for how tabletop RPG concepts might apply to real life. Sure, you have your obvious "Tie of +1 Professionalism" gag, but do some research and dig a little deeper into the fantasy worlds of D&D, Warhammer, GURPS, World of Darkness, Shadowrun, Pathfinder, and the like. Now for the rules:
