Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

 

Nope. He's straight out of Masterminds and Madmen (Thanks Steve! :rockon:)

 

 

I probably would've known that if I had that particular book (or any of the

Pulp Hero books, for that matter). The reason I asked was that the

villain in the S-M cartoon was named Skymaster (IIRC -- the last time I

saw that or any of the original episodes was back in the early, early '70s),

and, like the villain the heroes of the Agency are currently facing, used a

camouflaged airship/dirigible/zeppelin as his base. Of course, what gave

his base away was the fact that the "cloud" was moving against the wind.

Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

 

S.P.I.R.I.T (Super Powered International Research and Investigation Team) has it's first relaunch with new members as per UN Rules in a while.

 

During their first fight...

 

Colossus of Rhodes: OOC I'm going to finish my haymaker on the giant Mud Man

 

Me: OOC Okay. Aborting to Block. (Rolls a 17) He will not block

 

Colossus: OOC Cool! I swing my mighty bronze fist at him!

 

Me: You cock back your fist, and aim it at the giant blackish grey mass of sand and mulch.

 

(Colossus Rolls a 17)

 

...Thankfully, no one else except Volkhamar, the villain plummeting to earth, has the ability to view this massive display of combat ineptitude...

Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

 

Some quotes from our filler FCUAS (Fantasy Campaign Using Another System):

 

Hardicott: halfling warmage

Constance: human rogue

 

 

Hardicott OOC: "Is she going to be a long-term NPC? Should I write her name down?"

GM: "Depends on if you guys get her killed or not."

Hardicott OOC: "Ok, I won't bother then."

 

-----------

 

Our rogue is being mauled by a shadow mastiff, and the party has not been tremendously helpful in fending it off.

Constance: "What's with everybody coming in and winging magic at it!? Stab it! Stab it!"

Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

 

As the GM and being particularly proud of this session, I figured that I would take this chance to post the City on the Edge quotes for this week, seeing as Drhoz is likely sleeping as I post this. Yes, this campaign normally takes place in a CU-related setting, but this is the first in the Edge City 3D arc.

 

 

The Edge Issue #104 - Hell's Kitchen

 

"Yes, we have a problem. The kitchen staff are going to be in-between supers and demons, but that won't scare them off - they live in terror of the chef"

 

 

And a Rule 1 violation meant Gordon Ramsey was filming on the premises

 

GM: "It's a large commercial kitchen - there's some 82 innocent bystanders"

Zero: "Apart from Gordon Ramsey - you can hit him"

 

Terminus: "Everybody shoot Talisman first! *various energy blasts, EGO attacks, etc, ensue* They actually listened to me!"

Zero : "Sorry, you said something?"

 

GM: "The hideous tentacled thing takes a swing at Trawler... And hits you... In the thirteens."

Zero : "Hentai monster!"

Trawler : "They always hit me in the thirteens!"

Zero : "You need a cup" :D

 

Stentorian (OOC): "Have you got seperate Speed stats for Gordon Ramsey and his mouth?"

 

 

 

Trawler yanks a one-tonne steel table out of the ground, from between the kitchen hands

 

Trawler : "Excuse me whilst I borrow this"

 

 

 

Trawler throws it at the demonic sargeant, who ignores 14 inches of knockback and 19 Body, and shrugs out of the steel now wrapped around him.

 

Trawler : "Hey! Something solid to throw things against!"

 

 

 

Gordon Ramsey is trampled unconcious in the chef stampede.

 

Zero : "Either way, we win this battle!

 

 

 

Felicity : "Where's the tentacular mass that grawled Troper? I mean, groped Trawler?"

 

Tentacular Mass OOC: "I'm hitting him in the balls and I'm hurting my hand?!"

 

Zero stumbles across the disguised Sword of Glory ( literally )

 

Sword of Glory : "Welcome swordbearer - together we will slay many enemies."

Zero : "Would it be wrong to reply 'Can we start with my mother?'"

 

 

 

The rest of the PCs turn around to see Zero talking to himself, waving a meat cleaver and smiling strangely.

 

The remains of the demons dissolve and evaporate.

 

GM : "Welcome to Nightbane Earth - land of the self-cleaning monsters"

 

 

 

The casino kitchen is left out of commission for a month, the BBC has video footage of a demon vs. supers fight on a world unaware of either, and Gordon Ramsey was trampled, on camera.

 

Terminus: "I guess this counts as a Kitchen Nightmare"

 

 

 

Avatar detours to dump a demon weapon into a white dwarf star, and returns to Groom Lake four hours later.

 

Avatar : "Sorry I'm late, I went via Sirius B"

 

 

 

Local scientists and engineers stare, and start to gibber.

 

Stentorian : "Ever noticed people start sounding like Beaker from the Muppets whenever Avatar is around?"

Zero : "Secondary mutation" :D

Trawler : "Avatar, don't bother trying to explain how you do that"

Stentorian : "Warp space, not minds."

 

 

 

Terminus debriefs the locals on how well things went.

 

Terminus: "Oh, and I got to gut-shoot Talisman - it's been a brilliant day!"

Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

 

From our Champions game the other night.

The group was fighting a team of supervillians at a military base. During the fight the brick for the bad guys team picks up a jeep and prepares to crush some helpless soldier with it.

 

The Sphinx (Mummified Mage):I'll use my TK it should be more than enough to pull that jeep away.

GM: O.k. it's a Str vs. Str roll. (Dice are rolled and Sphinx fails.)

GM: You exert all your willpower towards the jeep and...manage to pull the rear view mirror to you.

Sphinx::eek:...shoot the mirror back at him.

GM: Well you managed to make him slightly mader than he was before and he is headed your way.

Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

 

Issue #104 of Kingdom City Comics' title Skeleton Crew ( The world's newest nuclear power )

 

No combat this session. Indeed, it was almost entirely conversation. Which was great, since the dialogue this week was golden.

 

Here's just a few of the lines.

 

Gunney's Player
: *absent-mindedly waving the cheeseknife*

GM
: No need for the knife, I'll GM good!

 

Vitus OOC
: At least the winter's over - Jasmine's nipples were about to break the de Beer's monopoly.

The Gunney OOC
: I thought Argyle had the monopoly on pink diamonds?

 

The Gunney
: Whilst we've got a few weeks off, there's a few projects we need to work on.

Vitus
: I'll say - I've got my homeworld to resurrect. And I have to finish teaching my students!

The Gunney
: We have to make sure you have a place to teach them, Vitus.

Vitus
: Eh, I'll just book the community centre.

The Gunney
: The planet, not the building.

 

The Gunney
: "How do we deal with an infestation of pixies?"

Vitus
: "A bug zapper?"

 

Other suggestions - pixie tea, pixie kebabs, and Cajun Pixie Gumbo

 

Vitus
: "I do hope Dr Lin Wu becomes overlord of China. He'd get my vote. Assuming either of us believed in democracy, which we don't."

 

Vitus
: "Truly the gods use this world to s*** on. How many world-ending threats have we had this week? Aura went 500 years with no more than three invasion attempts. And why do they all want to come to this hole, anyway? Is the multiverse populated solely by deranged masochists?"

 

GM
: "The woman dressed as a Gladiator speaks something you recognise as Latin."

The Gunney
: "Ah, *bleep*"

Vitus OOC
: "And I recognise that as old Anglo-Saxon"
:D

 

Vitus is called.

 

Vitus
: "Is it someone I'd actually like to talk to?

Mrs Rosenbaum
: "It is you friend, the Gunney"

Vitus
: "'Friend' is stretching the term to it's limit, but if he's daring to ring me then it might be important...

The Gunney
: "There's a girl here with a glowing blue rock - "

*whoosh of displaced air*

The Gunney
: "Hello?"

 

Her name is Quintias, from a Rome-never-fell parallel. And yes, she's got the dimensional gate artifact that went AWOL when Dr Destroyer showed up.

 

The Gunney
: "Great, another girl with a number for a name."

 

Quintias
: "I was asked to bring the talking stone to the house of the local Lord"

Vitus
: Ah, well I don't live here, but...

Quintias
: "Oh, I meant him.
points to Gunney
"

Vitus
:
:mad:

 

Vitus gets his revenge with some creative translation.

 

The Gunney
: "Is there some reward she'ld like?"

Vitus
: "Is there some reward you'ld like, no matter how excessive?"

 

Quintias asks to make an offering to the household gods

 

Vitus
: *
thinks
* Ah, if you'll just follow me to the TV room..."

 

Quintias asks about the other dinner guests. Vitus describes Void

 

Vitus
: "No, he's not a priest of Pluto. I had thought he was hosting an aspect of
Iok Sokot
, Eater of Souls, the Keeper, Key, & Gate. Now it looks like his chosen name was more perceptive than he knew, and he's swollen with the Void Entity - that which existed before all Time, all Space; that which seperates all that is, and will persist after all that is, is gone. The eternal hungry Nothing, that can eat all light, all energy, all life, and remain unchanged. I'm not sure that's an improvement."

Void OOC
: "gee, I always get such
great
introductions."

Quintias
: "Why do you let him live?!"

Vitus
: "He's so
useful
"

Orca
mutters
: "You could say the same thing about Vitus..."

 

Felicity eventually began to wonder exactly what Vitus and Quintius were saying, and why Maurel was now looking daggers at the ex-gladiatrix.

 

Quintias found the fact Maurel is one of the Fair Folk just as alarming as Vitus's description of Void, and babbles another hissed prayer, and warding symbol, for protection.

 

Vitus
: "By the way, Maurel understands every word you just said, and she's the daughter of one of their Lords."

 

Quintias threw herself at Maurel's feet begging her forgiveness and kissing her toes. Maurel accepts her apology, and swears not to persecute Quintias' line unto the seventh generation.

 

The rest of the team are now staring.

Felicity
: "How long would it take to learn Comprehend Languages?"

Vitus
*
glares
*: "How long for a REAL wizard, or how long for a sorcerous freak?"
:eg:

 

Orca arrives.

Orca
: "I sense you have fish..."

The Gunney
: "Given I left you a message about it, that's not much of an achievement."

 

Quintias
: "Truly this Empire is greater than Rome!"

Vitus
: "Don't tell them that, they'll just get big-headed. This fish is good, isn't it?"

 

Conversations on the subject of wine, and Vitus's name. e.g. "In vitus veritas"

 

Orca
: "I am Vitus - I am whine?

Vitus
: "in Vitus vindictiveness, perhaps?"
:mad:

 

Vitus also 'helpfully' coached Quintias in the English for "Would you like to sleep with me?"

 

Quintias
: "Would you like to sleep with me?"

The Gunney
: "Thought balloon - bits of hyena scattered across the room"

 

Quintias bares herself, and the Gunney declines as politely as he can.

The Gunney
: "Thought balloon - bits of hyena being fed into mincing machine"

 

Quintias accepts his disinterest, clearly assuming he's gay.

 

The Gunney
: "Thought balloon - mince being fed to sharks"

 

Void goes looking for the Gunney, who is working off his frustration by "banging away hard at something."

 

Vitus
: " But not Quintias"
:eg:

 

The Gunney
: "I don't do casual sex."

Vitus OOC
: "And you dare call yourself a Tony Stark clone"

 

The Gunney
: "Would you like to come visit dog-breeders with me?"

Maurel
: "I don't swing that way"

The Gunney
: "Do you understand the phrase TMI?"

Maurel
: "Do you understand the phrase 'teasing'?"

 

The Specter
: "I'm not sure how to translate 'polycarbonate composites' into Latin"

 

The Specter reminisces about his military experience

The Specter
: "Actually, the Second American Revolution was quite civil at times - 'You there Johnny Reb?' 'You there Yankee?' We even traded across the lines. We had tobacco. They had coffee. Well, we had tobacco, and cotton. They had coffee. And food. And trousers.. Shoes... Ammo..."

 

The Specter tries to explain why the Gunney turned Quintias down.

 

The Specter : "Everett and I are of an older generation - where we didn't sleep casually, frivolously, where sex only came after -"

Vitus : "Manual stimulation?" :eg:

The Specter : :mad: "Long association"

 

About the Specter's new stealth-zeppelin

 

The Gunney
: "Sky Castle? I thought it was the Sky-Specter?"

The Specter
: "Do I look like a camp 60's super?"

The Gunney
: "Well, you look exactly like you did in the Sixties, does that count?"

 

Vitus
: "what if ( 3/Jasmine) gets claimed by the local Emperor?"

The Specter
: "I'm not above regicide"

Vitus
to Quintias
: "You didn't hear that"

The Specter
: "But I wasn't speaking Latin!"
:confused:

Vitus
: "'Regicide'?"

 

We use the Keystone to escort Quintias back to the Syracuse and Roman Empire of her alternate.

 

Instead of a quiet farm in Sicily, the last panel of this issue is us next to the Appian Way, with the Flavian Ampitheatre and several hundred Romans, legionaries, etc in the background.

Vitus
: "How did we phrase our order to the Keystone?"

The Specter
: "Er... Take us to the Rome of her world?"

Vitus
: "Ah. ****sticks."
:help:

Pssst... Spector? Your guys lost. Get over it!
Spectre - "Yes, and look where the over-reaching powers of the federal government have landed us today."

Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

 

Second American Revolution?

 

Ahh... that's a new one on me..... When did that happen?

 

 

I was under the impression that it (the Civil War) was referred to as the War

of Southern Independence (at least by Southerners of that time).

As there are today, there were a number of names for that war being bandied about. "The Second Revolution" crops up in correspondence of the time - interestingly, on both sides.

Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

 

I've heard it called "The War of Northern Aggression."

 

But then again I'm used to hearing foolish statements.

 

 

If that's what the folks in the South were calling it, then they were ignoring

the fact that they were the ones to kick things off.

Re: Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

 

Two PCs are talking about their powers. Champion has a power suit and Twilight uses magic.

 

Champion: Okay now prove that was magic.

Twilight: It doesn't really work that way.

Champion: I could go on wining this argument all day but I want to check out the hotel.

What?! No Buffalo-style pixie wings or Pixie Tempura on the list?

 

Vitus is slipping somewhat in the imagination department.

Pixie wings aren't meaty enough - buffalo-style pixie drumsticks, on the other hand....

 

And conveniently, pixies are small enough, that when you boil them the bones get soft and crunchy :D
