Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

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

 

Don't leave us hanging' date=' man. What's the Easter potion do? :help:[/quote']

 

It was a superficial potion the player made just to be silly. When the easter potion was applied to a living rabbit, the fur would temporarily be dyed. In the case of the one K used in the demonstration, it was a light pastel blue. it would fade in time, and would not stay on if the rabbit was killed. This fact was shared when one of the other players talked about someone being served a pastel blue rabbit to eat.

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

 

Today in Super Powered Research and Investigation Teams!

 

Dr. Quetzalcoatl has escaped from jail, and our heroes are hot on his tail. They track him to his base on the highest mountain overlooking Lake Titicaca (Yes, I know, it's a lake filled with boobs and poop).

 

So they're flying in with their jet, and I have people make their perception rolls.

 

El Caminante (Afraid of Flying): No way! I'm not looking out the window.

 

Tulpa (Afraid of being above the mountains, he's a sherpa): Me, Too!

 

Lady Mondegreen: What's that funny noise? It sounds like an electric, grinding hum. And there's some metal down there!

 

Phantom Strike: Yeah. (Imagine that in engrish)

 

Cloud Warrior: I see something.

 

Veneaza: There's a big metal thing down there.

 

Cloud Warrior: That's not a "Thing!" That's a railgun!

 

BANG! So the railgun blows their jet out of the sky and they spiral downward while it shoots at them, after finally getting below the firing arc of the railgun, they have to scale the massive slope.

 

So the PC's are trying to figure out how to scale the ice shelf, and Tulpa is like "Hey, I can climb this easily. Do we have any rope?"

 

El Caminante: Yes! I have all this rope from my parachute. (Clearly, fortune favors the fearful, especially since he was flown down and didn't need to use it.)

 

Phantom Strike: Yes, and I have ARROWS. (Keep in mind, this guy's a spirit samurai. His bow is readily obvious and accessable)

 

Lady Mondegreen: You have arrows? (As if in disbelief.)

 

Tulpa: We could use them as pitons.

 

Cloud Warrior: Why don't we just tie the parachute rope TO the arrows?

 

Tulpa: What if it can't penetrate the mountain?

 

Cloud Warrior: He has more than one! We can fire a test shot!

 

So that was how my PC's got up the mountain last night with their Sherpa and no mountain climbing gear to avoid the railgun. Unfortunately for them, Arrows are not invisible. So here's how the session ended.

 

Tulpa: I crest the last rise. I am shrouded in white. He does need to make a perception roll.

 

Me (Rolling a 3): You crawl over the lip of the last Ice Shelf and standing there is an agent commander of some sort with a weird looking Aztec techno-headdress and a suit of body armor. He points a funny looking gun at you and indicates the eight agents in similar gear and the four large Aztec-looking robots at the four points of the helipad. "Greetings, Tulpa! As you can see, we've been expecting you."

Okay, he's not in my gaming group.

 

But I really liked this quote.

 

Too many gamers focus on what the rules are and not what the game is.

What is her secret ID?

 

If I recall she's an actress of some talent which doesn't get recognized due to her more obvious assets.

Indeed, keeping a secret ID in comics is often extremely easy. The TV show "Lois and Clark" hung a lampshade from it, with a time traveling villian mocking Lois Lane...

 

Villian: World's greatest reporter? Hah! Dons glasses "I'm Clark Kent" removes glasses "I'm Superman!" puts glasses on "I'm Clark Kent" takes glasses off "I'm Superman!" tosses glasses to Lois You worked next to him for years and didn't realize it until he told you!

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

 

From Saturday's session.

 

New heroes, players new to the system...

 

GG OOC: How was I to know that a ranged killing attack could kill someone?

 

After hearing that D.E.M.O.N. and Viper are sponsoring drug gangs in San Diego...

 

GM reads list of San Diego Gangs: El Serpiente Verde. Helldogs. El Serpiente Real. Devil Cats.

War Dragon: I'm sensing a pattern.

 

The brick meets the martial artist...

 

War Dragon: I'm War Dragon. What did you say your name was?

Dragon Slayer: Errr...

 

(Part of the backround I've handed out was the Superteam in Los Angeles, The Dragons. War Dragon, after the first mission, told the Press that they were "The Dragons of Justice". The press is going to link them with the Los Angeles Police Dragons, official superteam of L.A.P.D. Ouchie.)

The Los Angeles Police Dragons were from a earlier campaign of "Teen Champions", where they started out as basically a street gang, fighting gangs sponsered by Viper and D.E.M.O.N.... they would evolve into a real superteam, and join the LAPD to avoid being drafted by the registration act.

From a much earlier game group: Titan, the team brick had "Unusual Looks: 8' tall" from his two levels of growth (always on) AND "Secret ID". I asked him "What, do you hunch down a lot? How many 8' tall men who look like they could start for the Raiders are there?"

Oh, and for the record: GG, after shooting the (no resistant defenses) thug for 15 body spent his next action using his 8 or less Paramedic skill to stop the bleeding... and rolled a 3, suceeding brilliantly and impressing everyone, especially the Martial Artist medical doctor with healing powers.

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

 

Two bits here - The Background and The Quote. The background is quite lengthy (feel free to skip it) so the summary is Kai Sun has quit the leadership, there is a mob war in Moscow, and something bad has gone down at Militia Headquarters.

 

The Background

The Knights of Justice have returned to Moscow to find all out war between two criminal families, with one family involving VIPER in the mix as allies. Kai Sun (martial artist from another dimension) quits being team leader as he feels he shouldn't be speaking for the Earth as he isn't from it, plus no one in the team seems to listen to him. The Knights of Justice wage a war against one of the criminal families because some members feel they should be doing something plus one crime family murdered a member of the Moscow Militia (who was selling information to the bad guys, but they did it in Militia HQ). We capture the person responsible for the murder, and incarcerate them in the Militia HQ.

 

VIPER sends its two main enforcers, Wrack and Ruin (think slightly less tough than Viperia, but one is a telepath specialising in pain and the other an Akira-level telekinetic) to the HQ and (offscreen) level it to the ground. The Knights of Justice rescue and, in Kai Sun's case, heal those they can, but the toll is high. Wrack and Ruin appear at the scene and tell Kai Sun that they will be coming for the Kinghts of Justice in 48 hours.

 

After the clean up Kai Sun makes a few choices, and decides to address the world.

 

The Quote

People of Earth.

 

My name is Kai Sun and I represent the Knights of Justice. You probably have not heard of me or us, for we do what we have to do to keep you safe without needing praise or thanks. But I am speaking to you now because yesterday at approximately 2:30PM a line was crossed.

 

At that time two paranormals known as Wrack and Ruin, who are operatives for the criminal organisation VIPER, totally and utterly destroyed the Moscow Militia Headquarters in an attempt to assassinate a prisoner held there. Approximately 130 people were murdered and 200 were maimed in a premeditated and callous act.

 

The dead and injured were not costumed heroes. They were not super villains. They were not gods, super soldiers, geniuses, aliens, androids, demons or monsters. They were not even common thieves, drug dealers, or murderers. They were militia officers, cleaners, secretaries, mechanics, technicians, and telephone operators. They were wonderfully and incredibly normal. And they were murdered. By paranormals.

 

And on behalf of all who display abilities beyond what is ‘normal’, I ask your forgiveness.

 

They have done this before, and something similar to this happened in your past, with the one known as Destroyer.

 

I ask… no I BEG of you, the people and governments of this planet, to show restraint. To resist the temptation to unleash your armies and weapons of mass destruction upon those responsible, to resist the temptation to restrict personal freedoms of your citizens out of fear, to resist the temptation to...** remove us – who would protect you from the dark things without and dark things within.

 

I ask that you let us, those who are paranormal, deal with this.

 

And in asking this I call on ALL those who wield the skills and gifts; the technology and magic; to ALL those who wield power that is beyond the norm to work together, united in purpose. I and the Justice Knights will do what we can, but in 48 hours we may be gone and others will need to take our place. Wrack and Ruin, and their master VIPER, have crossed a line that should never be crossed. They are a paranormal problem; the paranormal world should deal with them.

 

There must be a reckoning. There must be justice. Wrack, Ruin, and VIPER must answer for their crimes. And only then will the line between the worlds of normal and paranormal be strong again.

 

I am Kai Sun – Fist of Heaven. Leader of the Knights of Justice.

 

** - at this point my wife's phone rang with the theme tune to a particular 80's TV show causing the OOC line "to resist the tempation to... call the A Team" to appear on the night :)

Dude, it's just so not cool to throw out a straight line like that and then supply the punch line yourself. It spoils the fun for the rest of us. :winkgrin:

 

But yeah, what you said. You do reach a point where it becomes as ridiculous as Ben Grimm wearing a hat and trenchcoat. :doi:

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

 

In my EU Interpol Attached Superhero Game, the heroes encountered a group of Russian Mercenaries dumping radioactive whale chunks into a lake in Hungary.

 

(And yes, I could not get "Oh, no, Adrian! Reds are polluting the city lake! What are we gonna doo...oo...oooo?" Out of my head)

 

The PC's knocked one of the mercenaries into the lake, and he became a psionically aware mutant with links to the now semi-sentient whale biomass. They escaped, and after a long investigation, it led back to the head of this Russian Fishing Fleet company who was allowing people (Or paying for people, they still don't know) to use his whaling trawler for experiments on these whales.

 

One of the PC's is Nordenhaav, a Danish superhero who is extremely environmental. So, in the final battle when the Fishing Magnate is there for a business conference, the PC's are picking him up at the airport.

 

The villain mind controls Nordenhaav to kill this guy. Nordenhaav becomes enraged at the polluter on an 8-, making the Mind Control almost impossible to snap. After a long battle, Nordenhaav blasts the Fishing Magnate near to death, and finally makes his ego roll when he realizes that the fishing magnate is about to die. He turns and raises his hand to the villain.

 

"Damn you! How dare you make me do this!"

 

The villain, Whalesinger, responded thusly. "I only made you do what you wanted. You have no one to blame but yourself."

 

A hushed silence followed as Nordenhaav blasted the villain into unconsciousness.

 

After the battle, Nordenhaav turned himself in to the other PCs and the police, saying "Arrest me."

 

The session ended with the villain and his biomass ally being dragged off in vans, along with Nordenhaav, sirens wailing.

 

I have to reward this player somehow. He's pretty much going to lose his character for good roleplaying and manning up. He looked me straight in the eye and said "I don't begrudge you this. The villain was RIGHT! And Nordenhaav knew it."

I think Feline Furies SID is a librarian. Complete with glasses, hair in a bun, button-up shirt, and short skirt. Combined with her current physique, she'll pegs so many fetishes she can simply fight crime by making the bad guys' heads explode.

 

And if her SID isn't a librarian, it should be.

 

 

 

 

What?
