Contraband. Illegal items. THOSE FOUND IN POSSESSION WILL BE PROSECUTED! Contraband can be anything from a food to a drug to a weapon to a kind of fish. Contraband can be virtually anything. And whats more important then what you can't have? Your Goal is to take something, and ban it. Make it contraband. And laugh as people within this culture try to resist breaking the law. I got this idea because on a forum that shall remain nameless, I am making an adventure in which a poorly organised SWAT team has to hunt down all those in possession of bread, which is now contraband. See, anything can be contraband! What is your Contraband? (Bread? Swords? Marijuana? Cats?) WHY is it Contraband? (Whats so bad about it?) How long has it been contraband? How did it become Contraband? (The story of how it came to be contraband. Different to WHY is it contraband in that you are not explaining the reasons, but the story.) You now have your Contraband. A short exercise, but it should be entertaining and, helpful to refining your world!
