Plus, the whole premise of the show is based on 11's powers, so the fact that they're not realistic is baked into the concept. But the jocks thinking that D&D players were committing ritualistic Satanic sacrifices was portrayed not as a supernatural element of the story, but as the realistic reactions of the townspeople.
I think this was meant to be another homage to the '80s, when rumors of Satanic cult sacrifices were a fad of sorts. And D&D was regarded with great suspicion (see Mazes and Monsters etc.).
