Quote of the Week from my gaming group...

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

 

It was far less than I suspected' date=' truth be told. His character has Unrequitted Love for Countess X, Oath of Fealty: Countess X, Code of Chivalry, and Rivalry Countess X's Husband, Social Limitation: Bastard, and Reputation: Paper Baron and Bastard Knight. Since the opening of the game the rivalry and the fact that he's in love with his liege have been played up on both of our parts. And the character has turned out to be religious and is struggling with both his desire to eliminate the husband and his passion for another man's wife in a big way.[/quote']

Wonderful indeed! A great example of playing conflicting disads against each other. And props to the player for building such a three-dimensional character! :thumbup:

Reminds me of a character a friend played in a Legend of the Five Rings game' date=' where he had True Love: X and Deadly Enemy: X.[/quote']

You just gotta love that role-playing opportunity. Too many players wind up with all their Disads reinforcing one another. Tell your Lot5R friend I said he rocks. (Like he cares what I say, but still.)

Yea, I actaually had just that in L5R. It didn't end well.

Funny thing is, once I got my *** handed to me trying to figure out how to do the 'right' thing, all my buddies came in and, uh, put a permanent end to the problem for me. The comment was made, "To bad we couldn't have done that to your psycho ex for ya."

That's what friends are for.

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

 

From my horror game with the slow moving, shambling zombies.

 

"I'll bring a couple of extra tracking devices. Maybe we can tag a zombie."

 

A couple of players joked about the bright orange tag that would be put on the ear. While I was imaging how dull that would be. 'Five minutes later it's at the end of the street, you can see it turning right. Your tracking device shows this also.' It would be a tracking device you could shoot into a zombie then take a nap and check later to see if it's gone very far yet.

Superhero team, narrowing the search for the villains, anticipating battle.

 

Our Leader, half in character, half out of character: "Let's keep the damage down to one city block this time, eh?"

 

Chuckles all around. I tentatively raise my hand, speaking for my super-strong character.

 

"Yes?"

 

"Is that one city block for the whole team, or a city block each?"

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

 

I've got a few...

 

Years ago I ran a game in Champions called "Alliance". Basically the backdrop was the predominate hero team of the world had been all but killed years ago but a new generation were trying to bring them back.

 

Gathered on a rooftop, several of these individuals were trying to figure out if they could work together.

 

Valkyrie: High-tech Power Armor. Wife of a former hero, now dead, and a reputable lawyer in Paranormal Law.

 

El Mano Rojo (The Red Hand): A super dectective and nightstalking swashbuckler.

 

Delt: A master of time and frat boy.

 

Red Storm: Bitter energy projector and test pilot.

 

and a few other...

 

They are discussing the legal ramification of becomeing a team and what legal powers thay may have when El Mano Rojo decides t use his many contacts to find out. One of them reccommends talking to Amanda Reese, (the aforementioned Valkyrie's secret id). So he calls her pesonal cell phone.

 

Everyone misses the fact that Valkryie's head begins to beep (the phone was interegrated into her Powersuit. But she doesn't have a voicemail, so decides to fake the answering machine message.

 

Valkyrie: "... so press 1 if this is an emergency. Press 2 if this you are a current client. Press 3 if you are a referal."

 

El Mano Rojo (a spanish batman-clone remember): "What number do I press if I figured out who your secret Id is?"

 

To this day we use that to refer to characters that obvioulsy blow there ID.

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

 

A few from last night's 7th Sea game:

 

(Aleksi the gypsy, the group Casanova, had been left behind in town to track down the nephew of the man we were helping while the rest of the party went to fight an 8-foot-long killer wolf in the forest. Having no idea how to get around Freiburg, he decides to ask directions... from the loveliest women in town. Needless to say, he didn't get far.)

Aleksi (defending himself to Stefano): "Do you have any idea how hard it is to find someone in this town? I mean, there was Rachel... and Brianna... and Michelle... but do you have any idea how hard it is to find a GUY in this town?!"

 

(on why medieval graveyards are outside the city walls)

Stefano: "You don't bury the dead with the living."

Thora: "So where do you bury the living?"

 

(Cael the Avalon archer has taken our enormous wolf kill to the Explorers' Society. Stefano has told him to get money for the wolf, but he has no idea how much it's worth...)

Cael: "You see those ropes typing the wolf to the horse? Those are some very expensive ropes..."

 

Ghost Raven (OCC): "Horses do not commit hate crimes."

 

Manfred: "Avalon, the land of the cute and fuzzy monster."

 

Stefano (to the now-26-up-from-6 members of the Town Guard who are escorting them to the nephew's house after the PCs decide to push them a bit): "So you don't get medals, you don't get promotions, you don't get trophies... how DO you know which guardsmen are the best?"

Leader of the group: "They're still alive."

 

(Thora has had enough of the men in the group picking a fight with the Town Guardsmen and finally turns to the one member of the guard who has not told the PCs to shut up or summoned help from another group of Guardsmen)

Thora: "You know... I'm not really with them. And if you want to rough them up, go right ahead."

 

(on Aleksi failing to find the nephew, and the Town Guard arriving the following day to "convince" the PCs to come along to the nephew's house under armed guard after the death of his uncle through no fault of ours)

Manfred to Aleksi: "Just remember, it's not your fault we're here... it's your fault we're here under these conditions."

 

Manfred: "We don't charge the dead for our services."

Thora: "We don't charge the living, either."

Manfred: "Yes, we do, we charge them up the a**!

*points to the nephew*

Manfred: "But we weren't doing it for him!"

 

(on whether they are going to accept the nephew's offer for a VERY well paying job)

Eric Karstein: "So are you all... amenable to my offer?"

Aleksi: "We are not at each other's throats, and for our own reasons, we have not yet declined your offer."

 

(on the group's acceptance)

Stefano (referring to the guards' arrival at the inn earlier that morning): "I believe you already know where we are staying?"

Manfred (referring to the fact that Cael has constantly been comparing things to "the way they are in Avalon"): "Yes, we are currently at the 'not-good-enough-for-the-Avalon' inn."

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

 

A few good one's from Thursday's Fantasy game:

 

"The paladin is twitching and crying. He's just a big puddle."

 

"That's evil. But in a good way."

 

I hadn't named my horse yet, so the GM proclaimed:

"You're on a horse with no name. Well, you are in the desert."

(GM gets bonus points, considering she wasn't even alive when that song was released.)

 

"The problem is I have testicles."

(I won't even try to explain the context there.)

 

(We come upon a group of gnolls, who have captured an NPC we've encountered before and buried him up to his neck in the sand. The NPC is a total jerkwad, but we feel honor-bound to rescue him anyway. The whole time we're fighting he gnolls, he's yelling and cursing for us to dig him out and generally being annoying.)

"Someone shoot the talking head."

"Don't tempt me."

 

And my personal favorite:

"Wow, my animal companion can kick my @$$!"

"The Rod of Orcus...and at a dollar store, no less. Who would've thought?"

"If the plane breaks down, it's not like we can just pull over and call Triple A."

 

-----

 

"In the history of the world, I wonder just how many other merc contracts have been signed in return for cookies?"

 

-----

 

"If black denim curtains can't keep the sun out...move to a planet other than Mercury."

 

-----

 

"Don't throw a book at me...throw something metal!"

"Somewhere in the universe, the star named 'Normal' just went supernova."

In the Dark Conspiracy-esque game, the group is trying to track down a particularly brutal sort of killer who, the last time the group tangled with her, sacrificed the soul of one of Dr. Travis Trent's graduate students in a black ritual. Dr. Trent, as well as the rest of the group, want this ***** bad, and are willing to go through a lot to find her. Currently their best lead finds them 'climbing the ladder' of the extreme end of the S&M/B&D community, using each club or group as a stepping stone to find the next higher, more extreme, club.

 

In the most recent club, the floor show for the night was what you might call audience-participation torture, with members of the audience being both victim and torturer. In order to try and make a 'good impression' so as to secure the attention of someone who could direct them to the next rung on the ladder, when asked if he would participate, Dr. Trent agreed...as a victim. After his time 'in the spotlight', another member of the group helped him back to where everyone else is sitting. Trying his best to ignore the pain of his injuries, and worried about the psychological stress the rest of his party may have endured seeing him being tortured for the delight of the audience, he asked them: "Are the rest of you alright?"

 

Rather wide-eyed and more than a bit wild-eyed, Rain looked at the rest of the members of the group, then back at Dr. Trent and said "After that...you have the nerve to ask us if we're alright?!?"

At the Pennsic War one year, the entire army of Atlantia was hired for something like 144 dozen cookies.

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

 

Set Up: The player characters have manaed to catch Mentalla and Durak, and have successfully transported them to Stronghold. This week, with a partial group, we role played a Eurostar Recruitment Drive as Fiacho plans to free his comrades.

 

Fiacho: My mind is ablaze, sparking with flashes of thought spiraling into a towering crescendo of creative alternatives!

Space Cowboy (played by M): Gol dammit Mr. Fiacho, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore!

---

Fiacho (addressing the gathered mob of third string super villains): You, my fine friends, are the very scum of evil! You are that which has risen to the top! You are terrorists, cut throats, mercenaries, murderers, bounty hunters, mugs, pugs, thugs, vipers, snipers, con men, perverts, pederasts, muggers, freedom fighters, hackers, horse thieves, bull dykes, ***-kickers, ****-kickers and Scientologists!

---

Fiacho: Gentlemen, to Evil!

 

The players performed a raid on the HQ of the Sydney Harbour Patrol, Sydney's premier Super Team, in order to obtain computer codes needed for Fiacho's scheme. Ilya Mourometz (played by M) and Ephemra (NPC) created a distraction by raiding the Powerhouse Museum while Cold Mary (played by SatinKitty) broke into the Harbour Patrol HQ and hacked their computers

 

Illa Mourometz (M), is at the bottom of a long flight of steps, surrounded by more than a dozen full baby carriages that he has saved as Ephemra sent them down the stairs, one after the next - "Stop pushing babies!"

--

 

Harrier and Brigade of the Sydney Harbour Patrol arive on the scene

 

Brigade - Oy! He's stealing babies!

 

They attack the huge, costumed Illya, ignoring the plain clothed Ephemra.

Illya Mourometz (M) - And people say Illya is dumb.

--

 

Cold Mary (SatinKitty) is caught red handed by Walkabout as she finishes copying the last of the data she needs. Walkabout succeeds at performing a Cover maneuver.

 

Walkabout - Hold it right there, little girl. Stand up slowly and step away from the computer.

 

Cold Mary (SatinKitty) - Didn't you get the memo? About the Virus? (Makes Seduction and Persuasion rolls, criticals the Seduction roll)

 

Walkabout - What virus? (breaks Cover)

 

Cold Mary - (Attacks).

 

---

Illya Mourometz, after being captured, is given a perfect opportunity to escape.

 

Illya Mourometz (M) - I break the chains! (rolls very well, breaks the chains in two phases).

 

GM - Good. You hear an alarm sound, but there's no one here at the moment. Now what do you do?

 

Illya - I sulk!

 

GM - Don't you want to escape?

 

Illya - No! [The heroes] locked me up, after I saved all those babies!? Fiacho partners me with that ***** Ephemra? I sit right down in my cell, cross my legs and sulk. Let them fight their own battles.

 

GM - OK.

 

Illya - Maybe I'll just get 500 hours of community service.

My wife (who does not RPG, nor understand it) reads this out loud over my shoulder:

"The Rod of Orcus...and at a dollar store' date=' no less. Who would've thought?"[/quote']

Wife: I've heard y'all play enough to know that is funny. I don't know what it means, but I know it's funny.

 

Ain't love grand? :D

What is the Pennisc War? A LARP thing or something?

 

Err... not quite a LARP. It's the major war/event held every August by the Society for Creative Anachronism. Last I heard, attendance hit 12,000 people, with 2,000 armored fighters on the field for the main field battle.

Do an image Google for "Pennsic" is see shots of the campground.

 

EDIT: I've attended and fought at this several times. The adrenaline rush when the lay-on cannon fires is second to none.

I think the sulking is my favorite part, though using Blazing Saddles quotes is AWESOME!:thumbup:

Ah, sounds a bit like Ragnarok, held by Dagorhir fighters. Less refined, but perhaps equally fun.

I don't recall the precise quote' date=' but basically, "See, if the orc's tent is a typical single pole structure, when the cow hits here it should..." because we were flinging cows on the enemy...[/quote']

Heh, I guess cow-tipping just isn't enough fun as it used to be. :snicker:
