Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

Recommended Posts

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

 

:lol:

 

A couple of friends of mine, not that long ago, found out that one of the most senior of managment (a VP, IIRC) was a gamer -- because they found a PHB & some character notes open on his desk when they went to his office to talk to him! :D

 

My boss's boss, who heard I had written a book (Ninja Hero) asked me about it. So I described the AB project. Some time later, his kids are in with him at work.

 

"This is Mr. Mike. He makes monsters."

 

:D

Ok, a friend of ours was visiting for a couple of weeks and was bringing in a new char. The rest of the party was already in the middle of the adventure in another plane, really nasty place.

We enter this large room to find a psycho looking female fighter type with a glowing blue sword.

Most of the party are understandably nervous, except for the female elf mage of the party who waves and starts toward the figure.

When asked why she thinks she can trust the psycho with the sword,

"but, blue's not an evil color!"

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

 

Sunday, the players are talking with the press after destroying the Ice Golum, Glacier.

 

Sonic Boom, who has taken the role of unofficial team spokesman (for the unofficial team) is fielding questions and the press has basically run out of the good ones, now they're lobbing the 'What's your real name?' type stuff. And he calls on a pretty female reporter(and his secret ID's girlfriend - he's been trying to help her out in her "friendly competition" with fellow reporter Jimmy Dugan).

Colleen: "So, Sonic Boom, do you have a girlfriend?"

Sonic Boom : "Well.... I guess you could say I am spoken for...by Justice!"

 

Then he said OOC: WHY ARE YOU ASKING ME THAT? DON'T YOU HAVE A BOYFRIEND?!

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

 

In a game a while back(Vampire system, Abberant character, it was a cross worlds), the character decided to go after a kidnapped victim dressed as "Bankerman", with his flight, speed, and indestructable briefcase.

 

Anyway, given the world...one of the NPCs thinks he's a Malkavian... leading to this scene.

 

"Ok, as you're coming up to the door you think she's in, you get hit over the back of the head."

 

"Does it do damage?" "Nope, but she says "You know you're supposed to fall down now.""

 

"Huh?" "If I hit you over the back of the head, it's lights out. It's in the rules."

 

"Nooo." Puzzled expression on the players face. "Of course it is. When the villian hits the hero over the back of the head, they pass out, to be tied up and then wake up later to be free."

 

"No." "Oh, come on, even superman does it." "Just... that makes no sense, no."

 

"Hey, it's in the heros and adventures handbook." "Well.... Why am I arguing with you? No."

 

Then proceeds to move on, though the delay gave time for another warrior team to move in.

This falls under "I'm crazy, not stupid." Back when I used to play an actual Malkavian (dressed and behaved like 'the Count from Sesame Street. There was a non-fluffy reason for it, trust me.) I would have people try stuff like that on me. I just treated them like they were mentally deficient.

*raises eyebrow* Interesting. I'd actually have to see your reasons, of course, but it's even said the best way to take on a Malkavian is by playing along with their delusions. *shrugs* Of course, at that point, the person was only playing for time anyway. The phrase "Nothing to lose" comes to mind.

It's a little complicted, but very basically, she'd been taken from an abusive home relatively young. She wound up more or less warehoused in indigent care at various institutions. Most of her caregivers found out she could be plunked in front of a TV and she wouldn't cause trouble. The only happy people she ever knew were the people on TV. When she was turned, she turned to the happy TV people for a framework to deal with it. The only vampire on kid's tv is the Count. So, when the pressures of being a horrible undead monster overwhelmed her, she pretended to be like the Count. She never thought she *was* the Count, because she understood that TV wasn't real. If TV were real, then there would be nice people and happy people in the real world, too, and she knew for a fact that wasn't true.

 

I regularly had people try stuff like "Look! Bert and Ernie are over there!" At which point I gave them the look of pure contempt "Bert and Ernie are tv characters. They're not real." The derangement was not that she thought she was a TV character, it was a sort of mix of stunted emotional development, severe depression and OCD. The maniacal counting and laughing was just a coping mechanism.

Out-of-game conversation that I thought was funny...

 

Player 1: So, Bill, how are you?

Me: I'm solid.

Player 1: Solid? What does that mean? Is it good?

Player 2: Is it better than being liquid?

Me: Well, it's certainly better than being gassy... ;)

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

 

“As you like to say, Champions taught you “With great power, comes great desire to USE that power.â€

“No, Champions taught us that if you throw a helicopter into the lobby of a bank during rush hour, there’ll be civilian casualties.â€

“That too.â€

 

 

From last weeks D&D game:

 

Me: “I use my breath weapon on it for . . . 18 damage, lightning.â€

GM: “Ok. Make an intelligence check.â€

Me: “Please don’t tell me that electricity heals it.â€

GM: “Ah . . . you can voluntarily fail the check it if you want.â€

 

 

GM (Different, a post-apoc): “The bush seems to be reaching out for you with it’s branches. Make a listen check.â€

Me: “Ah, six. I don’t hear the guys sneaking up behind me while I’m entranced by the tentacle bush.â€

GM: “Ah . . . dammit.â€

 

I use my metagaming powers only for good, I assure you . . .

 

---

From another game with the same group:

GM: “You, know, you’re STILL a gamer. The fact that you carry a gun and can take people down and throw them in jail can’t change the fact that you’re a D&D geek.â€

Player: (Mournfully) “No, it’s all because I’m short . . .â€

 

Admittedly, that was kind of a weird tangent . . . :)

Several good ones from last night's UNITY 2010 (Champions) game...

 

The uncontrollable samurai hero Red Dragon was sent to help capture an alien transport ship...

Thich Nat Han: Remember, no plan ever survives contact with Red Dragon.

 

-----

After Red Dragon has slain several foes:

Vilkacis: You should not fingerpaint with your enemies.

 

-----

Once Red Dragon came down from his enraged state:

Me: Killing all those aliens? It was better than sex. Well, you assume so, anyway.

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

 

In a fantasy campaign, where one character has a "symbol of death" cast on the inside of his hat for last-ditch emergencies, after we found out it wouldn't affect the rest of the party:

"Oh good, we're attuned to Wagashi's hat!"

 

 

Which somehow reminds me of a Pulp game awhile back. One of the women players was running this (to all appearances) ditzy secretary, who kept whining "Isn't anybody going to help a lady with her bags?!"

 

Then we got jumped by ninjas, and the "ditzy secretary" took out 2/3 of them by herself. After which, all us guys were falling over ourselves to carry her bags for her! :D

Dr Benedict and Palmer are outside a bar full of vampire policemen. They need to rescue a woman who has been offered up as refreshments but are outnumbered 10 to 1. Palmer suggests Benedict drive his 120 year old Deusenberg through the front of the bar to surprise the vampires.

 

Benedict: "That's no good. I'd never survive a high speed crash into a wall."

 

Palmer: "Well, turn into Captian Mysterion and he can drive through the wall."

 

Benedict: "Mysterion can't drive a stick, he's from Mesopotamia!"

 

Palmer: "Then I'll drive through the wall."

 

Benedict: "Can we please find a plan that doesn't involve crashing my automobile?"

Did someone manage to say that in one try with a strait face and not read it off a flashcard? If yes... you game with a lawyer don't you?

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

 

In this week's game, I got a new player (Deborah) that was the girlfriend of one of my players and a good friend of another (Jason).

 

We play for a little while and then Deborah turns to Jason

 

Deborah: Hey, Jason. I am surprised that you are not playing a woman in this game.

 

Jason: Wha...What do you mean?

 

Deborah: It is just that you like playing those girls in online games so much.

 

Jason: Oh..Er.. Well, I play a mix. Sometimes girls. Sometimes boys.

 

Deborah: Oh, okay.

 

In my game Jason is playing a woman pretending to be a man and none of the other players know. I nearly spit out the coke I was drinking and had to excuse myself to the bathroom to have a quick laugh.
