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

 

I was playing in a 4th edition DnD game Thursday night. I'm the new player, so I don't know anyone that well. But I have one comment I made that stands out...

 

"The evil Arch Lich has a blog? How does that work?"

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

 

From last night's Champions game:

 

Serendipity (in secret ID) shows up in London to surprise her boyfriend. They're discussing what to do that night.

 

Aidan: It's fairly early. We could go out and do some clubbing.

Serendipity: Or... we could do our clubbing right here.

Styx: ... and this scene ends showing the closed hotel room door, with music in the background. "Bow-chicka-bow-bow..."

 

Serendipity learns that Iota, the mental illusionist from PSI, is actually her long-lost sister, and that she has a daughter. They get together at a video arcade, with Serendipity in disguise, to discuss how S-Squad can help Iota leave PSI. They're making small talk in case PSI is listening in.

 

Serendipity: This video game looks neat.

Iota: Yeah. It's one of my daughter's favorites.

Serendipity: Maybe your daughter and my niece can get together sometime and play it.

GM: Um... your niece is her daughter.

 

PSI is holding Iota's daughter hostage, and the heroes are preparing to rescue her. They ask their friend Mac if they can borrow some PRIMUS stun and gas grenades.

 

Mac: I can't get you any regular ones... but there's a few stun grenades I "modified," and they won't let me put 'em back in the armory. I could let you have those.

Synergy: How far outside the radius should we be when they go off?

Mac: Oh, 10 meters or so. You know... safety first. (chortles)

 

They learn that Omega of PSI is a fairly accurate precognitive.

 

Styx: You know it's a trap.

Subliminal: Of course it's a trap. I always assume it's a trap. That's why I'm alive today.

 

The heroes charge in, and Synergy takes Tau down in the first phase.

 

Subliminal: My name is Tau... it rhymes with "OW"...

 

Synergy: I'm surprised Omega didn't tell Tau that was coming.

GM: She did. (look as Tau's character sheet) But he has "Glory Hound" and "Fool for a Pretty Face." He was trying to impress her by taking it like a man.

 

Groups of PSI agents open fire on the heroes with NND stunners... but all of the heroes have Power Defense.

 

Styx: Next time, use *real* guns.

 

Styx rounds the corner to face Omega...

 

Omega: Well, howdy, love!

Styx: Do I know her?

GM: The last time you saw her, just a few days ago, you were thinking of making her your Contact in VIPER.

Styx: The secretary from the VIPER base? Tracy?! She's a precog?

GM: Well, she *did* know you were going to get lucky, didn't she?

Subliminal: Women *always* know whether the guy's gonna get lucky.

 

They are a bit disappointed that PSI's cyberkinetic, Pi, isn't there.

 

Sentinel: I would be all over Pi.

Subliminal: With a fork and some whipped cream.

 

Alpha, able to replicate powers of any psionic within 30 meters, makes a big tactical error.

 

Synergy: I'm surprised he did that.

GM: Well, Omega *is* out of range. He really doesn't like when that happens.

Re: Quotes from Owlcon - part 1

 

Sadly' date=' I didn't write down any of the quotes from either of the Lucha games I ran recently. :( But those were some good ones! :thumbup:[/quote']

 

Those quotes made the game seem more awesome than it felt to me, but I'm glad folks had a good time. teh bunneh, your abbreviated character sheets for the main characters were a godsend, and I actually implemented the idea of doing little luchadore heads on popsicle sticks as handouts (along with Franquestein heads sporting the proper facial accessories).

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

 

BigDamnHero ran a Fantasy Hero game at Genghis Con a couple of weekends ago. And the game had a twist: Usually, in fantasy games you're playing the heroes. In this game, we were playing the Gods themselves! The characters were:

 

Belduin, God of "Luck" (Don't call him the God of Thieves and Liars, if you value your skin!)

Melingar, God of Justice (and Belduin's older brother; the two loathe one another)

Thul, God of Strength

Atal, God of War

 

Our mission: The sun didn't rise this morning. We needed to go down into the underworld and find out why...

 

Melingar: I take off my helmet to address the mortals.

Belduin: ...And your hair is perfect.

GM: Yeah, I can totally see Melingar using "product". :rofl:

 

Atal summons his power in order to awe the mortals around us.

GM: Atal begins to glow, like a big... um... glowy thing. OK, failed analogy. :help:

 

Atal exhorts Belduin to join the big fight.

Belduin: Sorry, I'm a lover, not a fighter.

Melingar: From what I hear, you're not much of either.

 

The gods are arguing among themselves about some petty thing or another...

Belduin: I swear, it's like we're all a bunch of 7 year olds!

GM: Yeah, that pretty much describes the gods from all mythologies.

 

As we entered the Land of the Dead, the gargoyles at the gate warn us that, once we enter, we can never leave. Thul begins questioning the gargoyles.

Gargoyle: I do not answer questions. I am only a door.

 

Atal hasn't gotten into a fight in a while, and is getting anxious and jumpy and cranky.

Belduin: Next time we get sent on a quest, I'm going to bring a sack full of mean dogs. Every once in a while, I'm going to pull one out and sic it on Atal, just to keep him focused.

 

At the end of the game, the GM asks us all if we've learned anything during our quest.

Belduin: Maybe from now on, Melingar won't be such a hard-a...

Melingar: No.

Belduin: But maybe if you just...

Melingar: No!

Belduin: Bu...

Melingar: NO! :mad:

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

 

BigDamnHero ran a game he called "Revenge of the Henchminions." The players each played a group of villainous henchmen, who were off-duty and relaxing in the local henchman's watering hole. Suddenly, a vicious gang of superheroes burst in, hell-bent on ruining our good time! Of course, we weren't going to stand for that, and a fight broke out!

 

This was basically just a big combat, between about 30 50-point minions and 5 superheroes. It was a blast! (Especially as it was the last game of the con, so we were all a little punch-drunk and goofy by that point...)

 

I don't remember all of the PCs. There were six players, each playing several pairs of minions (most of the minions came in pairs). So there were a buncha us. Let me try to remember:

The Men in Black (Dee and Cee)

The Mimes

The Westettes (evil cowgirls)

The Incredible Bulk

The Goths

The Cultists

The Robots

The Jesters

The Ninjas

The Manimals

...and there were a buncha others that I can't remember.

 

The NPC Superheroes were:

Shamrock (luck-based brick)

Dark Justice (standard Batman-type avenger of the night)

Boardman (teenage punker with a magic flying skateboard)

Thermal Inversion (hot and cold-generating blaster)

 

The GM is introducing some of the characters...

GM: This pair is called "The Mimes." They used to call themselves "The Evil Mimes," until they realized that was redundant.

 

The GM asks what we're doing before the superheroes arrive.

Bulk: Bulk is up on the table, dancing "The Gopher" from Caddyshack.

 

Before the superheroes came in, the minions were grousing about their bad pay and lack of benefits...

Minion1: We should unionize!

Minion2: No. The last guys who tried to unionize got Joker-gassed to death. :ick:

 

The superheroes burst in, and get a little good-natured ribbing before the fight starts...

Jester: Hey, Dark Avenger! Tonight is Ladies' Night -- you can get two-for-ones!

 

Truth:

MIB1: After you get your teeth knocked out a couple of times, the concept of fighting superheroes kind of loses its luster.

 

Somebody asks why a lame-o like Boardman is with the top-tier superheros like Shamrock and Dark Avenger...

GM: He's not really a member of the team. He just shows up with them sometimes. He's like, "Whoa, dudes? Are you going to fight supervillains? I'm totally tagging along, a'ight?"

 

The Jesters start the fight by throwing pies at Dark Avenger, and missing...

Jester1: We didn't really think that through, did we? :sad:

 

Best without explanation:

Cultist: I'm going to transmogrify the tampon machine into a bunch of spiders.

 

The Westettes lasso Thermal Inversion...

Westette1: Yee haw! This is just like ropin' cows back in Texas!

Westette2: You're from Minnesota.

Westette1: Yeah. But I like Texas!

 

A minion casts a mental illusion on Boardman...

Cultist: I'm going to show him his worst nightmare: A flat, featureless plain. No rails to grind, no half-pipes to olly...

Boardman: NO! No merciful god could be so cruel! :weep:

 

Boardman beats the tar out of one of The Goths...

Goth: My soul is a halfpipe!

 

Best without explaination:

Ninja1: Ninjas don't have a gender.

Ninja2: "Ninja" is our gender.

 

Thermal Inversion unleashes an all-out attack against the Men In Black ... and misses.

MIB1 (deadpan): We're luckier than we should be, Dee.

MIB2 (deadpan): Yes we are, Cee.

 

Their luck does not hold for long, however, as they get blown through a wall.

MIB1: I told you we should've stayed home tonight and watched The West Wing.

 

A couple of Animal-Men climb up into the rafters to escape the fight...

Manimal: It's getting crowded up here, what with all the ninjas and whatnot.

 

The Mimes get trounced.

Goth1: You know what's cooler than a mime?

Goth2: What?

Goth1: Everything.

 

The Goths have a complicated relationship:

Me: The Goths are sleeping together. They don't actually like each other, but they're sleeping together.

 

That cultist has been in the bathroom for a long time, transmogrifying everything in sight...

GM: Are you actually going to participate in this fight?

Goth1: She just likes turning s**t into spiders, is all.

 

Dark Avenger beats seven shades of tar out of one of the minions...

GM: He's getting hammered!

MIB: We were all getting hammered, until you stupid superheroes showed up! :mad:

 

Bulk leaps at Shamrock, and misses. But the Jesters use their luck power to give him a re-roll, and this time he hits.

GM: Bulk leaps at her and Shamrock nimbly steps out of the way. What Shamrock doesn't realize is that Bulk's prescription recently changed, so... Wham!

 

Bulk spends the rest of the fight falling in love with Shamrock...

Bulk: Bulk like Shamrock, cuz Shamrock green. Like Bulk. :love:

 

Boardman attacks a random minion...

GM: He hits you hard, fast, and continuously.

Bulk: Bulk make love like that. :love:

 

The Cultist is still in the bathroom, still transforming things at random...

Cultist: Man, they should really clean these bathrooms more often. This place is a mess! :eg:

 

Bulk has been just a little too friendly over the course of this fight...

GM: Shamrock is going to need to shower for three days after this fight is over.

Bulk: Bulk join you! :love:

 

Bulk and Shamrock get hit by a Gravity Gun (entangle), and are stuck.

GM: Bulk, you're Entangled so you lose your action.

Bulk: If lying on top of Shamrock isn't "action," Bulk doesn't know what is! :love:

 

Little too friendly? Yeah...

GM: That's it. When this fight is over, Shamrock is taking out a restraining order on Bulk. :sick:

 

Shamrock breaks free of the entangle, but them Bulk grabs her.

Bulk: You not leave 'til Bulk done!

Shamrock: Well, that should've been about 30 seconds into this.

 

Does this one really need an explanation?

Robot Bartender: Ladies' Night starts at eleven!

Bulk: Ladies' Night start NOW!

 

Dark Avenger gets knocked cold. One of the robot bouncers picks him up and throws him out the door.

Robot: Please allow me to escort you to the exit, sir.

 

Dark Avenger comes to and attempts to re-enter the bar:

Robot: I'm sorry, sir, the establishment is full. Please come again some other night.

 

The Cultist is still in the bathroom, still turning things into spiders...

Goth: Man, that bouncer robot is going to be pissed when he has to clean that bathroom. :nonp:

 

Shamrock gets thrown through an outer wall. A robot bouncer steps up to block the hole.

Robot: This is not an entrance. This is only an exit.

 

The fight is going well until another Hero shows up, a mentalist who is invisible to all living creatures.

Goth: Shouldn't the Goths be able to see her? We're dead inside...

 

One of the Goths gets mind-blasted.

Goth: You hurt me here (points to head). My girlfriend hurts me here (points to heart). And I hurt me here (points to wrist). :(

 

The robot bouncers split up to "clean up" a couple of different messes...

Player: This must be "roleplaying." Otherwise, I'd never split up my only group that has the Teamwork skill!

 

After the battle is over:

Cultist: What? No one has ever turned s**t into vermin before?

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

 

...did the spiders ever get used?

 

Believe it or not, yes. At the very end of the fight, another hero (forgot his name) showed up. He had a deathly fear of the color green. So at the very end of the fight, the cultist opened the bathroom door and this wave of green spiders pours out right in front of the hero. It was amusing, to say the least. But it's not like the cultist planned it -- she was just in the bathroom, making spiders. That the superhero, who happened to be phobic, showed up right then was pure coincidence. :lol:

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

 

The game: Champions

 

The Players - The Boston Protectorate

Inferno - Team leader. Human-torch style energy projector.

Nightengale - A telepath with Aid-powers to boost her allies.

Prism - Humanoid diamond. Strong & tough with some light-based powers.

Graviton - Brick with gravity control and density alteration.

Willowisp - Gypsy with magical will o' wisps that do her bidding.

Kitelea - Teen-age girl who can magically shape shift into a dragon or an anthro-dragon form.

Book - An apprentice mage working with the team on behalf of her House.

 

The Scenario

In our last session, Prism had been captured by a very powerful team of villains known as Powerstar. Finding the contents of Prism's mind to be mostly useless (insert your own joke here) the leader of the group, Mind Star, has him under mind control to hack into law enforcement databases. The team is trying to mount a rescue - and to stop Prism from doing too much damage with his hacking...

 

Nightengale: Book? Do you or any of your associates have magic that can affect technology?

Book: Look, I know a lot of folks think that technology is powered by "magic smoke"...

 

Book has a strong personal vendetta against Tigress (one of the Powerstar villains) as she almost killed her in the previous encounter. She also does not have a code against killing. Nor does the dragon. So, she's trying to convince Kitelea that super-villains make good eating...

 

Book: I know you’re in the mood for kitty meat right now…

OOC *stifled and un-stifled laughter*

Book (OOC): Not that kind of kitty-meat!

 

After Graviton had hit Mind Star with a forklift in their last battle, there has been a running-gag about forklifts and their usefulness as weapons ever since.

 

Nightengale: Graviton? Couldn't you take a forklift and compress it to the size of a softball and have a super-dense projectile?

Book: Why not just take a softball and make it as heavy as a forklift?

 

In the actual battle, the team is not doing as poorly as in their previous encounter, but they are still at a serious disadvantage. The tide was turned in their favor when Captain Champion (major Superhero NPC in my 'verse, sort of a cross between Superman and Captain America) flew in and took down The Ox (Powerstar's main brick) with a single blow (OK, it was a high-speed move-through, but it still made an impression). After the battle was over...

 

Graviton (in a perfect Blue Raja accent): I do think we must at least concede him the assist.

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

 

After the battle above, Book is feeling very much like a Glass Cannon™. So, she decides to spend some of her XP on Armor and Regeneration (the in game justification being she has obtained a new magic item).

 

The Scenario: Book goes to Mac's Magic Shoppe. Imagine Mac to be Basil Fawlty, and you can see where this is going...

 

Book: So, Mac. Anything new since I was in last time?

Mac: Yes.

Book: *rolls eyes* Can you be more specific?

Mac: Only if you give me some clue as to what you're actually looking for.

Book: Books. Amulets. Talismans. Anything I'd be interested in.

Mac: Sorry. Still not very helpful.

Book: Fine. Any new books?

Mac: Yes.

Book: *snarls* Any I haven't read, yet?

Mac: *thinks* Doubtful.

Book: Why do you do this to me every time?

Mac: *sighs* You know the rules, dear. If you want something, you need to go find it. You'll find what you can use, and won't what you can't. It keeps all the riff-raff and apprentices from doing things like finding ancient tomes they've no business trying to use.

Book: Oh come on! How about giving me a straight answer? Please? Tell me, just this once?

Mac: *clears throat* Just this once.

Book: *facepalm*

Mac: Good shopping.

Book (OOC): Walked right into that one...

 

So Book digs through the shelves, and eventually finds an amulet. Curiously, it bears the crest of her magical order, House Phoenix (Leave me alone - I made up the name for this group years before Harry Potter). Even more curiously, it has a tag on it with a note from her Mentor.

 

"It's about time you came looking for this! What took you so long?" ~ Strange

 

Book: *swears loudly in numerous dead languages*

Mac: *calls out* Ah! Found it, have you?

Book: What makes you think I found anything?

Mac: Why else would you be swearing so eloquently?

Book: *mutters* Oh, yeah, he would understand me, wouldn't he? *out loud* So, do I owe you the usual price?

Mac: It's already paid for.

Book (OOC): Oh, he's [strange] never going to let me live this down, is he?

GM: What do you think?

Book (OOC): That's what I thought...

So let me get this straight. A hero with a fear of the color green shows up to join a fight involving Shamrock and The Incredible Bulk who are both green (as established by previous quotes). Did this chlorophobic hero hope to effectively contribute to the fight? :confused:
