It's All The Rage
You open one of the dormitory doors in the frat house, and see an empty dorm room with the coolest poster ever on the wall. It shows a huge dragon flying over a snowy landscape. A wizard rides atop the dragon, the end of his staff glowing with unearthy light (*snicker*). Above them, the sky is a riot of planets, stars, supernovae, weirdly twisted galaxies... you lose yourself in the poster's details, feeling yourself start to become one with the mystic...
Then you feel a sharp smack on your hindquarters. You turn around and see an Orcish frat boy menacingly brandishing a frat paddle. "Hey, bra," he says, glowering, "you shouldn't get so involved in that hippy crap. It's not macho, you know, bra? You should come outside and toss around the ol' pigskin with us."
"But I'd really rather just stay in here and contemplate this poster," you say, "did you notice this galaxy almost looks like a series of runes?"
"Bra, I can see you need some serious attitude adjustment," the frat boy says. You immediately put your back to a wall, but then the frat boy laughs and says "Ha! No, I'm not talking about paddling you, bra. If you're too interested in frou-frou magic crap and not interested enough in sports, you need to take this pill."
You're a little leery about accepting gifts from frat boys, but the pill he offers doesn't seem to be made out of roofing material, so you swallow it.
Man, that poster's so gay. You're gonna go outside and roll around on the grass with a bunch of other men, instead.

(duration: 10 Adventures)
- The "roofing material" not present in the pill is probably Rohypnol, commonly known as a "roofie".
- This could be a reference to the F. Paul Wilson book All the Rage, which involved a drug that would increase aggressive tendencies, and was often used by those wishing to boost their athletic prowess for this reason.
