   I think that an adventure that touched on "forture boards" (the AMA
term for Ouije boards) would be an excellent idea.  These things should
be shown as direct connections to the Dragons, and should display all
mannor of lies about the Overlord.  (Per the "nice and happy
non-Christian afterlife" that senances and the Boards seem to portray.)  
   Let's not be afraid to actually SAY something with this game.
