RPG Media Monday - Contemporary Folklore in the Digital Age

There is an interesting article on thegeekanthropologist.com regarding "Contemporary Folklore in the Digital Age."  Read more here.

From the article:
Contemporary folklore can be found within geek enclaves and hubs, such as video games and Internet urban legends. By drawing on folkloric traditions from around the world, and crafting their own universe-specific lore, video game writers and developers are building new interactive spaces for folklore and reifying the significance of folklore within our cultural imagination. Internet related and generated urban legends such as Slender Man also demonstrate the importance of cyberlore and the transformation of folklore in the digital age.


What can be gleaned from Media
and used in our tabletop RPGing?
