IT's not related to a television show.
IT... ehm.... well....... gee...... I'm not sure how to answer that....
soooo.... maybe, sorta?


IT was a mistake.

Pr0-T1p: It may have resulted in fictional deaths.

Yes: Happened in the last 100 years, Happened in the last 50 years.
Sorta: American, "obscure internal consistency".
No: Happened in the last 5 years, political, scientific, Fashion, didn't kill a soul, Star Wars Episode 1, Movie Related, Television show.

Is IT from comic books/comix?
Is IT primarily from some other print media?

(and what I was trying to say with that prior question was something along the line of, say, a reference within a ficitonal universe's canon to Darth Vader being Jean-Luc Picard's father or something that would cause nerds to weep, and geeks to pluck out their eyes)

Not a Comic.
IT is in a sort of print media...

(And yeah, I get what you meant and in that strict context, it was a no. But if you simply look at the words "internal consistency" then it's a yes.
Also, it is obscure enough that you will need to research specialty sites, like I had to to find that errant french plane!)

As far as I am concerned, Netflix falls within the purview of Television show related, so... No!
It's not so much related to RPG Gaming as it is to gaming.

Did IT occur in relation to a card game?
Did IT occur in relation to a board game?
