The Keeper of the Magical Realm
A GM that uses an unwilling or unwitting group to indulge in his or her fetishes without getting their approval. This can result in anything from mild awkwardness to "Oh God we need to get out of here before he shows us his stack of torsos in the basement". Most often it seems to simply be a GM with insufficient social understanding, but it can lead to severe discomfort at the table when certain lines start getting crossed with no discussion beforehand.
Sometimes it takes only a TMI warning to put a stop to it. Sometimes it takes a frank and direct talk about what is and is not appropriate for the group; it needs to be made clear that people are being made to feel uncomfortable or even unsafe. And other times it's just plain unhealthy to keep playing with those that continue to exhibit this behavior.
Named for a Gunshow comic that illustrates this perfectly.
