Quote of the Week from my gaming group...


Recommended Posts

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

 

boardgame rather than RPG, by me in the middle of Judge Dredd.

 

Background. In the game you visit various sectors where crimes are reported and you then arrest the criminals responsible. This is against the other players who are playing Judges as well. If you get killed you go to the hospital and then have to come out and start trying to arrest someone elsewhere. But the vendettas the game spawns can be legendary and such fun as you seek to deprive the other judges of arrests usually by sending them to hospital or away from a crime.

 

So the quote.

'Who wants to die and go to prison ?'

Somewhat gaming related, but really funny... to us at least.

 

Proditor (on these boards) and I were exchanging a few PMs about Heroclix... at the same time he is PMing with Dave Mattingly on a reformatted DH ariticle.

 

He opens an e-mail he thinks is from Dave, in response to the article... it says...

 

“Man... that sucks. Ok... well, worth a try at least.â€

 

 

:nonp::jawdrop:

 

 

 

 

 

So... after he grabs his personal defibrulator... he notices that the message is actually from ME. :o

 

Glad to know he had a sense of humor on this one... and I appologize for the emotional kick in the gut. Sorry dude! :thumbup:

Setup: We were using European characters for a one shot adventure. Some Atlantians had stolen a powerful artifact and we had been able to track them down to a small island. Looking out the windows of our plane we see a bunch of robed people and I say:

 

"We was lookin' for fishmen, not bleedin' druids!"

 

The G.M. almost spewed pop he was laughing so hard.

While packing up the miniatures after our epic 2 year story finale (see http://www.herogames.com/forums/showthread.php?p=784769#post784769 for details), I mentioned how the Hitler-in-a-Jar figure took up too much space in th tacklebox-of-doom.

 

Jim said "It's too bad were never got to fight Hitler-in-a-Jar."

 

Terror scoffed "Ya wanna see how you fight Hitler-in-a-jar? Watch."

 

She knocked an empty Pepsi bottle off table.

 

"Oops, crash, done. Is the strip club still open?"

In the HU mail game I am running, a group of players are trying to deal with an imposed dream. Ashlee (Liz) and Nathan (Clyde) have just caught up with and were separated from Jacob (Jim). Ashlee sent a long post on how she would hold people together if they had to so they wouldn't be separated again.

 

This is the reply from Clyde:

 

 

Oh yeah! She *so* wants me! thought Nathan to himself as Ash finished her little speech, then replied, "Sure thing, Sweets."

Our ongoing GURPS: Firefly campaign got a new character a couple of weeks ago - a merc/negotiator named "Star." The following exchange happened at the first business deal Star set up.

 

contact: Which one of you is Star?

 

the captain: The one playing continuous soft-rock throughout the work day.

 

(this may be a "Boston only" joke, but I'm guessing there are other "Star FM" stations throughout america)

Ye Gods, that's comical! I once tried to name a droid in the SW RPG "LT-FM" until the GM realized I'd be relating the traffic and weather in soothing tones.

I've had the misfortune of hearing radio all over the country .. I don't think there is another Star FM. But this ... this is a great line.

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

 

From Saturday's Champions game.

 

The PCs are invited back to the Homestead after stopping the Horizon Casino from robbed and/or demolished. When Defender asks the PCs if they are willing to trust the Champions and work with them, Midnight (my PC) looks at him and says, "I'll show my face if you show yours."

 

He thinks for a moment, obviously weighing this one up, then he removes his face plate. At which point Midnight stares, and then bursts out in uproarious laughter as she removes her own mask and hat. Defender stares at her, his jaw hanging open in disbelief as he realizes that Midnight is, in fact, the multimillionaire playgirl gambler who owns the estate next to his.

 

Defender: "You're s***ing me."

Necessary Evil game...

 

Our villains... on the run... come across some suped up gang types working with a K'tharin and using V'sori tech. My mini-brick Cannonball and an atlantean female fugitive (no name we know yet. I call her fish-girl.) are fighting the K'tharin... a giant humanoid shark alien.

 

I finally land a massive blow, taking him down after a difficult struggle.

 

As the shark dude drops.

 

Fish-Girl: batting eyelashes and saying sweetly... "You could have at least let me land that last blow."

 

Cannonball: "Oh... uh..." bending over and lifting the body, "I can hold him up for you!"

 

------

 

Fish-girl suddenly goes psycho and begins stab/blasting the quickly dead K'tharin over and over again with her electro-lance!

 

Cannonball: "YIPES!" dropping the body as it jerks and twitches under her assualt. "Aaaahhh!! It's a fish fry!"

 

Then... sniff... sniff.... "Hmmm... I need some tarter sauce."

D&D Dungeon Crawl...

 

The Dwarven Barbarian scouts ahead as the group stays behind.

 

Suddenly the Barbarian is ambushed.

 

The DM turns the rest of the party and says...

 

"You hear the sound of a Dwarf being slapped by a Wet Tentacle."

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

 

D&D, and a bit of game history first -- several game years ago (before I joined the group), some of the PCs managed to kill a black dragon. Getting to a first edition dragon while it's still asleep really does help ;) . One of them took enough of its hide to make a suit of armor, and is still wearing it.

 

Fast forward to last night, which starts out with a black dragon swooping in on us. The veteran PCs in the group recognize it as the same dragon they fought and killed lo those many XP ago. It would appear the Cult of the Dragon found enough of its body for a Raise Dead. One of the other characters, a wood elf (and small even by wood elf standards) happened to be flying at the time. The wood elf announced that she was going to fly at top speed to hide behind the paladin, because "I'm snack-sized!" My comment to her: "You're not the one wearing its skin."

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

 

First post, and I picked this thread.

 

Was in a D&D game where our group had to slip buy the sleeping dragon to exit the cave 'o' doom, of course the dragon was not sleeping.

 

As the group was midway between entrance and exit, the dragon woke up.

 

(We were at the time about 7-8 level, Dragon VERY old and powerful, that's why we were sneaking)

 

Dragon says "What are you doing in my home?"

 

There was a pause as the group was looking at each other for ideas when the Rogue - Bard spoke up, from behind by Cavalier I might add.

 

"We are here to kick YOUR a**, and take YOUR gold" with finger pointing at all the right moments.

 

The group did make it out of the mountain (without gear) but our poor Rogue - Bard Pencinious was no more.

On the table where the GM's kids were playing, are a number of toys, including a doll of "Woody" from Toy Story. Two of the players on the couch play with them while the GM talks.

 

About ten minutes later, we encounter a goddess (It's an exalted game) in the swamp. She barters that for a kiss she'll show us the way to the temple. Our barbarian, who is known as a lothario who has left a trail of satisfied goddesses across the landscape of the world, steps up and kisses her.

 

At which point, another player turns to said player, who is holding the doll, and says, "Um... You might want to put your Woody away."

Our D&D party has been ambushed. Teveri the Halfling scout (who's schtick is that she's just too kawai for words) just took a critical surprise attack that dropped her to 2 HP. Her action comes up and she runs away from the fight, back to Oskar, the cleric.

 

Teveri: I got a boo-boo! :weep:

Oskar: Looks to me like you've got a sucking chest boo-boo! :eek:

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

 

Much of the last two games has been our party going over it's options. We're going no where as the GM baically railroaded us into a plotless adventure. (or so we think)

Anyway my fighter, a CG fellow, is frustrated last week and advocating that we complete the mission objectives, and get out. But the LG mage keeps saying we should help the people of this city.

 

fastforward to this week and the mage is now advocating leaving asap. My fighter:

No, dammit! You spent all of the last two days calling out my sense of justice and making derogitory remarks about my bravery! You stay here, we'll take the family and leave!

Lillith (Terror’s character) and Mad Angus have eloped to Niagara Falls (contrary to Dr. Benedict’s warnings about marrying an Unseelie fae). Meanwhile, Dr Benedict (Jim) is sucker-zapped with an NND and awakens to find his amulet missing and a note from his girlfriend saying she was sorry.

 

 

Terror: “HA! You were all ‘Whaa whaa! Don’t marry Angus, you’ll regret it!’ Now who’s getting honeymoon sex and who got his amulet stolen, Bee-YOTCH!?â€

After literally demolishing an entire building during a hostage situation that somehow involved an out of control chaos mage and a rampaging oni, Poet emerges from what is left of the campus anthropology building.

Poet: It's alright! I'm alright! You can move along now. Um... classes will resume as scheduled...

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

 

A D&D game I was in several years ago...

 

OK, between a combo of a DM who used inappropriately high-CR monsters, a player who thought that 'Lawful Good' meant 'Lawful Stupid' and yet for reasons known only to himself picked the paladin anyway, and a supporting cast who faithfully RP'ed their alignments even when all common sense was telling them it was time to run away, most of the party died.

 

We were a level 7-8 party. Basic sequence of events was this:

 

* Paladin opens door, sees lich, and rather than close the door and get the eff out of dodge -- seeing as how a lich is *well* above our ability to survive -- he screams and charges. See above re: 'had a point to prove about how LG supposedly means LS'.

 

* LG cleric of the dwarven war god goes 'You idiot!'... and goes in anyway, as both alignment and honor code are compelling him to back up his comrade-in-arms.

 

* LG cleric of the same deity that the paladin worships (my character)... well, I'm stuck. Not only are alignment and ethos absolutely not letting me abandon my comrades to their deaths, but Sir Brain-Dead and I are in the same church hierarchy. So, resigning myself to gruesome death, I go in.

 

* CG half-orc fighter -- sees that his buddies are in trouble, charges in to go help them out. Entirely in character. (Especially given his Int 8).

 

* N mage -- stays in partial cover at the doorway arch, snipes with spells.

 

OK, I just went down the initiative order for round one. Then the lich took its action... and proceeded to obliterate all five characters I just named, with some type of area-effect negative energy damaging spell that I don't even know the name of. I mean, we're talking "straight from full HP to below -10 in one shot". Only the paladin successfully saved, but even half damage was enough to atomize him, as we were already down some HP from an earlier encounter.

 

However, while the area of effect covered the entire room and the doorway, it did /not/ cover the hall outside... so two of our party were still alive.

 

Those two party members were a N thief/mage, and a CN thief.

 

And I swear to God, feet sticking up, that as soon as the lich blew us all into ash, the two players in question turned to each other at the table and said, without missing a beat:

 

"Race you back to camp."
