Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

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

 

You do know that "Vitals" doesn't really mean "groin" don't you?

 

Lucius Alexander

 

The palindromedary points out that in fact that was probably a shot to the heart.

 

I have heard that the one does not always equate with the other.

 

However, (a) the term 'vitals' is often associated with the lower abdomen region, especially in classic literature; (B) refer the standard hit location table which, aside from arms, runs in a "head-down" format - eg. chest, stomach, VITALS, thighs, etc.; © I would point back that the heart is, in all probability, located in the CHEST.

 

That is the interpretation our group follows, anyhow. Pretty sure it is the right one - it certainly makes the most sense to us.

 

Besides, groin-trauma-based humour is always good.

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

 

From my D&D4 Bloodmater game, I was having a little trouble with my color commentary...

 

GM: The evil priest casts a ... magic ... thingy ... :think:

Brontus (OOC): That's an awfully non-specific description.

GM: Unfortunately, his charsheet doesn't actually describe this power.

Rody (OOC): Well, what's it called?

GM: "The Great Hand of Destruction."

Pax (OOC): That's easy enough. A giant hand comes down from heaven and pimp-slaps you!

GM: Yeah... only problem with that theory is, this is actually a healing spell. :nonp:

 

:rofl:

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

 

From my D&D 4th Edition campaign, all are OOC comments.

 

Suggested movie title for session after some nasty combat moves are displayed: "Enter the Druid"

 

After entering a room with undead and noticing something odd about the way the torches are burning: "What you don't smell is iocaine vapor."

 

"As a move action, I flip him the bird."

 

"Kill wighty!"

 

"I dub thee Whiffmaster Supreme." (Which reminded me of another campaign where a character earned the non-coveted title of Jedi Whiffmaster.)

 

"I cast "Infernal Moon Curse" which was taught to me by the Scottish."

Another one from the Bloodmater Game:

 

The party is in the process of talking their way out of an ambush:

 

Justine to Brontus: One of these days I am going to teach you the meaning of Bluff!

Brontus: I hate math!

The party pounces on a Tiefling pirate captain' date=' hoping to use the ship's edge to their advantage...[/i']

Aester: Don't knock her off the edge of the ship!

Alix: Why not?

Aester: She's a Boss. She's probably covered in Loot!

 

Yeah, the heroes have lost out on a lot of ph@t l3wtz by knocking boss-characters off ledges in this game. They're starting to become really careful about who they throw off cliffs. ;)

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

 

From Sunday's D&D 3.5 game:

 

Background: a meteorite struck in a remote area, and was (note the past tense) apparently imprisoning something major bad, other-worldly, with lots of shadowy underlings to call upon. Whatever this "big bad" is, it's still somewhat bound to its former prison, a huge rock in a crater atop a mountain ridge. The heroes need to cast Hallow (requiring 24 hours of casting time) and bind a Dimensional Anchor on the site. All the while protecting our Druid, who is the only one high enough level to cast the Hallow. Fun, fun, fun!

 

While fighting one group of shadow-creatures:

Yllek: (Il'Marcum, our dragon-born sorcerer) has a very special Animate Breath, but he has to turn around first... (imitating The Spleen from Mystery Men): Weapons check! (sticks out his finger) Pull!

 

After blasting at "figure #5" on the battlemap and doing substantial damage:

Il'Marcum: Number Five... will hopefully no longer be alive.

 

Yllek is firing volleys of arrows, many of which are passing harmlessly through the shadow-creatures.

DM: You know, down below here, a caravan is probably riding though, all innocent... and then this rain of arrows begins falling...

 

The big bad is telepathically threatening us...

BB: You will SERVE me!

Yllek: Oh, yeah, we'll serve you, all right -- a heaping can of whoop-a**!

 

Bleeding profusely after battling a few waves of the shadow-creatures:

Ryan: I ask them about their dental plan.

 

Looking for ways to bypass the shadow-creatures' periodic insubstantiality:

Il'Marcum: I have a rod...

Leila: (disgusted look) We KNOW you have a rod...

 

Leila is told she needs to make a skill roll.

DM: "... Concentration."

Devlyn: "Castration?!?!"

 

It never hurts to have the party rogue owe you.

Yllek: (After using a Raise Dead scroll on Devlyn) You died, but *I* brought you back.

 

Once the Hallow was cast, the rock stops glowing and transforms into pumice. We're trying to decide what to do with it.

Ryan: What if an evil wizard wants to reconstitute it?

Il'Marcum: Reconstitute it?! What is it, a can of frozen OJ?

If time travel becomes possible, I wonder if there will be "temporal bottlenecks", certain times and places where time travellers seem to want to go. "Congratulations! You're the 100,000th time traveller to visit Dallas, Texas on November 22,1963! Next on our tour, Lakehurst, New Jersey, May 6, 1937..."

I vaguely recall that GURPS Time Travel had something called "The Limelight Effect" that limited the number of time travellers who could be present at certain events.

...Well, you see, the first person to ever invent time travel went and blew up every single time travel machine. And then his own.

 

So now, any time someone tries to invent time travel, they end up with an explosion and end up convinced it doesn't work.

Edge City - Back In Town

 

A new PC - Spellweaver Beaver, a name kiboshed because of the predicted results when it impacted Purrdence's Smut Field

The Mystic
: Oh, you're a mystic too?

Terminus
: No, I use guns

Weldun, GM
: And puns

Stentorian
: He's a punslinger

Zero
: Goddammit, I was going to say that!

Trawler continues his series of YouTube fingerpuppet dioramas of whatever happened to The Edge team this week

Weldun, GM
: You never did one about the day the only ramen house downtown got wiped out. Ramegeddon.

 

Trawler
: Do you have any idea how difficult it is to find ramen in a world of hyena-women?

 

Weldun, GM
: Ralph Digby always was the douche-bag among the stretchers. Every time a new woman joined the group, he'd come up and say 'Hi, I've got stretching powers'.
Every time
.

Murray
: 'Hi! I'm Strap-On Girl and I'm glad to hear that ...'

Weldun, GM
: '... because I want to try out this new 18-inch - ( cut to new scene )'

 

Avatar
: We met up when Elan was robbing a drugstore. This was before she reformed and joined that supergroup.

Zero
: Nemesis. Not Asia, The Travelling Wilberrys or Band-Aid.

 

Terminus's Player
: Murray's not actually playing.

Murray
: I'm the Watcher.

Me
: Shouldn't you be wearing a toga then?

Weldun, GM
: No! No! I did not need that mental image.

Terminus's Player
: Plus you'd need to lose the rest of your hair.

 

Zero
: Has the reporter commented on the wooden cigar Indian yet?

Weldun, GM
: No, because it matches the rest of the decor! He's going to open his article with 'Walking into the Edge base is like stepping into the 1950s...'

Apparently the real Gordon Ramsey has heard about the session of our game he starred in. He was amused by Stentorian's line about his mouth having different stats to the rest of him.

Zero
: They had this whole Roman Empire thing going on -

Weldun, GM
: Holy Roman.

Zero
: I don't that! I focus on the 1950s! Ancient History is ancient history

No Cthulhu - my campaign appears to be haemorrhaging players :( Only Purrdence there last night

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

 

I attended synDCon over the weekend (well, Saturday anyway).

 

Shadowrun 4E intro game:

(7 players, none of who have played Shadowrun!)

 

The characters:

(no name selected) the Human Covert Operative

Count Zero the Human Technomancer (hey, the kid was stuck for a name....)

Howard Finklestein the Elf Weapon Speacialist

Key the Human "Hacker"

Shorty the Dwarf Drone Rigger

Slick the Elf Combat Mage

Yan-She (a.k.a. Smokey Snake, a.k.a. Smokey) the Ork Gunslinger Adept (guess who I played!)

 

First of all, I'd like to kick myself for not realizing the Ork Gunslinger Adept was A) Chinese, B) female, C) a two-gun fighter, and D) based in New York. Thus it wasn't until about 2 hours into the run that it dawned on me I should have named my character "Revy."

 

Howard Finklestein: "No one has any guns here."

GM: "There's a lot of bulges in pockets."

Howard Finklestein: "Those are cell phones."

 

Howard Finklestein mentions a problem with the person we've been hired to find: "She's dead."

GM (as Peaceman, our contact): "So? I was dead once."

 

Smokey comments on the rest of the party: "What's Chinese for 'I don't know these people'?"

 

GM: "It's written here (in the scenario) that if you're wearing the wrong socks, there's a fight."

 

Howard Finklestein gives the party their marching orders: "[You three] are going to pick up chicks."

 

Howard Finklestein (OOC... I think): "Let's go in and shoot people."

Key: "WHAT?"

 

Slick's player looks over his character sheet: "What's a katana?"

 

Howard Finklestein explains the reasons for our plan of action: "So we don't have to kick down the door and start shooting."

Shorty: "I would."

Smokey: "Yes, but you're a dwarf."

 

Dragon Age

This was a 45-minute fight scene to explain mechanics. So no real quotes. but....

 

GM (Green Ronin's Hal Margold): "Roll 2d6 and add 5."

Player's dice: "1+1."

 

Hong Kong Action Heroes II

Robert Dorf runs a playtest of his GenCon scenario.

 

There were four PCs:

Kamen Rider

The Saint of Gamblers

Vampire Cop Ricky (who I got to play! Yay!)

Varga

 

GM: "A creature so offensive only the Japanese could have conceived of it!"

 

Saint of Gamblers: "If [Hawkwoman] wasn't crazy, she'd be good arm-candy at a casino."

 

Vampire Cop Ricky to Varga: "You have the weirdest enemies."

 

Vampire Cop Ricky: "Do I even remember where I am?"

 

The GM explains the game scale to two new players: "Imagine you're a high school boy talking about your penis. One inch equals two meters."

 

"Inescapable Breast-Grabbing Hands" a.k.a. "Vampire Cop Ricky's Ultimate Grope Attack"

 

Kamen Rider: "A nice flying Rider Kick into the electrical balls."

This followed by:

Kamen Rider: "18 BODY to the [electrical] balls."

 

Vampire Cop Ricky advice to the party upon taunting Tail Lung (played by Pei Mei, who's played by Gordon Lui): "While he's breaking me into pieces, beat him up."

 

The GM explains Tai Lung's sudden burst of common sense: "While he's invincible... he's not invincible at this moment."

 

The GM comments on Varga's reaction to the scene: "Oh... you have no grasp of soap opera."

A conversation amongst players in a rolemaster campaign.

 

Alexis: Female warrior

 

Forest (players name can't recall name of character) Mage

 

Setting: Deep inside a mountain where several party members had already died. Currently in a crypt with a sarcaughagus on a raised platform in the center of the room.

 

Forest: Well let's get that thing open and see what loots inside it.

 

Alexis: There's no loot inside there! If we open it something is gonna jump out and kill us!

 

Forest: Nonsense! There's loot in there. If we don't open it someone else will open it and get the loot. OUR LOOT!

 

Alexis: I'm telling you there's nothing in there but a world of hurt.

 

Forest: Well I'm gonna open it.

 

Alexis OOC to the G.M.: I start looking for a way out of here.

 

Forest opens the sarcaughagus and as predicted an ancient evil (as if there was any other type) lich inside awakens.

 

Alexis: Mr. Lich I abdicate my world of hurt to Forest.

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

 

Our group illusionist had just had a scene where a woman handed her baby over to the illusionist. She then realized the woman was missing a foot, had a broken neck and was a zombie, who said "thank you" and proceeded to fall over dead.

 

Freaked out, she called my character, I quickly flew over and she explained what happened.

 

Me: "And that's it?"

Her: "What do you mean, 'is that it?' The dead are walking around... Does this seem normal to you?"

Me: "Honey, I fly."

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

 

Last night's Champions game:

 

After a teen's kidnapping was interrupted by a bunch of squirrels, a trio of mutant hunters are watching the teen, suspecting he is a mutant. Unfortunately, Sentinel lives practically across the street and gets suspicious, so she x-rays the men.

 

Sentinel: The guy inside the truck -- how big is he?

Styx (smirking): Well, he's "bigger" than the average man...

 

The heroes discover that the mutant hunters really don't have any defenses.

 

Subliminal: Do you have a "stun" setting?

Synergy: I have an attack that doesn't do as much damage, but this type of thing isn't what it's normally used for.

Subliminal: Kinda like a baseball bat?

GM: Yeah. It doesn't normally do BODY damage... to baseballs.

 

A new NPC super, the Squirrel King, takes credit for saving the teen.

 

Sentinel: We should probably get in touch with him.

Styx: Yeah. His name *does* start with an "S".

 

Investigating a missing reporter, the heroes find that a scientist, Dr. Reginald Dagget, is involved.

 

Synergy: I'm sorry, but all I can think about is that stupid robot dog from the old Battlestar Galactica series.

Subliminal: Oh, gawd, that thing was so irritating.

GM: Actually, that's exactly where I got his name.

(Sentinel and Serendipity say they don't know what we're talking about, so we attempt to describe it.)

Subliminal: It was like a monkey in a mini battlesuit. You just know it was embarrased as (heck) about it. "When I get out of this thing, there wil be *SO* much poo-flinging..."

 

The heroes discover a secret VIPER training base, and they're discussing whether to contact PRIMUS Lt. Alisha Parkinson (whom they call "Pansy"). She absolutely does NOT like supers, and the heroes like needling her whenever possible.

 

Subliminal: Actually, I don't have any history with her. That was my predecessor.

Styx: (sarcastic) Yeah, that'll cut ice with her.

 

The elevator opens up to reveal a hallway with, of all things, a reception desk.

Styx (OOC): I wave and say to the guy behind the desk, "Hey, how's it going?" then just walk past like I belong there.

Subliminal: Is your boss in? We're his three o'clock.

Synergy: Yeah. We're here for the live fire demonstration.

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

 

Part 2 of last night's Champions game:

 

Flashback to when I was drawing up the battle map. My 14 year-old daughter walked in – she claims to be “mostly evil” and likes it when I’m playing the bad guys.

 

Her: What’s that?

Me: A VIPER base. They’re testing giant robots there. Well, not giant, but bigger than normal.

Her: Cool! (pause) Where’s the poison pit?

Me: Poison pit?!?

Her: Yeah! You’ve gotta have a poison pit!

Me: How about an acid pit?

Her: That would be okay… but a poison pit sounds better.

Me: And where am I supposed to put it?

Her: How should I know? I’m an evil genius, not an evil architect.

 

I’m pointing out different things on the map.

 

Me: And that’s the reception desk.

Her: Why is there a reception desk in the bad guys’ base?

Me: Mainly so I can see how the players react. And that’s a sitting area over there, with a fountain.

Her: You’re weird.

 

Backtracking a bit to before the assault.

 

Subliminal: Should we call Pansy? See if she’ll give us a hand?

Styx: I’ll bet she’ll give us a finger. You can guess which finger.

 

After PRIMUS arrives, the heroes are talking to Mac, an assault agent with a reputation for customizing his weapons.

 

Synergy: Here, you can use this. It’s a heat beam projector we took from the Subterrans.

Mac: (opens an access panel on the side of the weapon) Y’know, you can get a lot more power if you just bypass those pesky safety interlocks…

Synergy: Yeah, I know. I already made some modifications.

Mac: (closes access panel and high-fives Synergy) Kid, I like the way you think.

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

 

And finally, Part 3:

 

Okay, back on track. The heroes have just walked into the VIPER base and past the reception desk and the dumbfounded male receptionist, who is watching Styx walk away but turning to hit the “intruder alert” button.

 

Subliminal: I hit him with a mind control to keep watching Styx instead. (rolls for 30+ EGO effect)

Joe (receptionist): HEY! You can’t just walk in here! (waves his clipboard) You’ve gotta sign in!

 

Unfortunately, six VIPER agents round the corner, see the heroes, and trigger an alarm. Subliminal creates an illusion of Synergy standing by the water fountain while the heroes head down another hallway. Another group of agents coming down the hall blasts the illusion, trashing the water fountain. Gordie the janitor comes out of his janitor’s closet, where he’s been napping.

 

Gordie: I’m not cleaning that up! (pause) I’ll let the night guy do it. (ducks back into his closet while blaster shots fly back and forth)

 

Sentinel x-rayed the base, so they know there’s five Mech-VIPERs and a Chimera Battle-Pod heading their way, in addition to two more squads of agents. She also identifies the base’s armory, several offices, and the location of Amy, Subliminal’s missing DNPC. Synergy heads to the armory, while Styx steps into an office to stop a secretary from burning all the files.

 

Styx: I’ll knock her out. OCV 9. (rolls) I hit, unless her DCV is 12 or more.

GM: (rolls) She blocks your punch.

Styx: (smiles slowly) I’m gonna be a little while here. (closes the door behind him)

 

Styx and the secretary (Tracy) banter a bit while they circle and trade (missed) attacks. Then he successfully grabs her.

 

Tracy: I don’t normally let guys get this forward on a first date.

Styx: So, how about dinner afterward, then?

 

Styx squeezes Tracy unconscious, then uses her computer cords to tie her to her chair.

 

GM: Subliminal… your smut senses are tingling.

 

Styx: (OOC) I’d have given her an Indian rub, but I’d probably accidentally rip off her arm. (mimes holding a ripped-off arm) Sentinel! Can you fix this? She just did her nails!

 

Tracy regains consciousness as he’s tying her feet to the legs of the rolling chair.

 

Styx: Nice gams.

Tracy: Gams?! How the heck old are you?

 

Remember Joe, the receptionist? After Styx took off, Joe leapt over the counter and chased after him, braving blaster fire, flying bullets, rocket explosions, and what not to catch up to Styx. He even yelled at a Mech-VIPER to stop blocking the hallway so he could get through. The heroes have decided that the other VIPER agents are probably amazed at Joe’s dedication at stopping the heroes, armed with nothing but a clipboard. Joe finally catches up and opens the office door to see Styx finishing tying up Tracy.

 

Joe: (with a slight leer) Listen, pal, you still gotta sign in. (holds out the clipboard)

Styx: Oh, sure. Sorry. (signs his name and hands the clipboard back) Good job. You can go hit the alarm button now.

Joe: Yeah. Thanks. (walks away)

 

 

Synergy grabs a crew-served tripod-mounted blaster cannon and hip fires it. After an initial miss trying to figure out the weapon, he one-shots a Mech-VIPER, then blasts another one. Meanwhile, Styx has come out of the office and heads toward the armory.

 

Styx: I need one of those!

Synergy: This one’s almost out of power. Can you pick me up another power pack while you’re in there?

 

Styx finds that there’s unfortunately not another one of those, so he grabs a Brickbuster cannon, a rocket pod, and a few other heavy weapons, in addition to a spare power pack for Synergy's weapon.

 

Styx: WWMD?

GM: Huh?

Styx: What Would Mac Do?

GM: Hmmm… probably duct tape them all together and try firing them all at once.

Styx: And the best part is, that acronym includes “WMD.” I’m sure Mac would approve.

 

Once VIPER’s forces are defeated, Styx goes back to collect Tracy, only to discover she slipped the cords binding her, and ducked out a secret tunnel that the heroes already knew about and had informed PRIMUS to cover. Styx follows her trail (he has IR Vision with Tracking) and sees…

 

Tracy (talking to the suspicious PRIMUS agents surrounding her): Oh, it was horrible! VIPER had us hostage, and … (sees Styx walking her way) oh s***.

Styx: I’m glad to see you got out of there safely, miss. (to the PRIMUS agents) If you don’t mind, I have to ask her a few questions, then I’ll see her home. (He and Tracy begin walking away)

Tracy (quietly enough so only Styx can hear) You are *so* getting lucky tonight.
