GM: “Queenie’s mace, against chainmail, is Super Effective! Especially being on fire.”
Queenie: “For the glory of Campbello: EAT IT!”

--

Ezekiel: “I’m going to step back—I’m not sure it was voluntary.”

--

GM: “Seven is experimenting with all of the all-out attack options.”

--

Queenie: “Queenie is totally desecrating this thing’s corpse.”

--

Seven: “I do not see a weapon—this could be very very bad.”
Magnus: “That means he’s a mage.”

Re: Memorable Quotes.
 
My character in Legend of the Five Rings was asked to write a poem about honor and had no successes. So...

Roses are red
Violets are blued
Honor is important
I think so too


The judges were not impressed.

Due to a personal injury our regularly scheduled madness was replaced with us just hanging around shooting the breeze.

But, there were still funny things said:

Mark: “He’s got a voice like smooth whisky.”
Chaos: “So . . . drain cleaner?”
Mark: “No . . . more like he’s got a voice like what people who haven’t tasted whisky think whisky should taste like.”

--

Chaos (playing Skyrim): “This guy has a lot of arrows.[lists them]”
Gumby: “Is he a shop keeper?”
Hand of Bobb: “Is he a pin cushion?”
<beat>
Hand of Bobb: “Is he secretly another PC?”

Player 1: Why is everyone shooting?

Queenie: “We’re in the market for an orphan, maybe you could send them [to deal with Gnagagnodart].

GM: “Then you went and dealt with Gnagagnodart, which ate up the vast majority of your remaining sanity points.”

--

GM: “A Campbellan crusade is known as a ‘Catering.’ It’s where they bring Campbello’s glory to the masses.”
Queenie: “Yes. Everyone brings a dish.”

--

GM: “That’s wa-aa-aa-aa-ay more eloquent than Seven has ever been.”
Queenie: “Yeah, I expect him to bust in [to the orphanage] saying ‘give me your sturdiest orphan!’”

--

Meadow: “Just how old of an orphan are you looking for?”
Seven: “Ten-to-thirteen . . . middle-aged for a child.”
<beat>

--

(so many orphan jokes. Wish I had recorded the audio. It was so funny.)

--

Seven (OOC): “A giant pop-up book of Pixie smut?”
Magnus (OOC): “It’s actual size.”

Shadowrun. The PC have a minor fight with a few gang members, dressed in street style with baseball caps. The runners manage to take some as prisoners.

Troll-Samurai: "Well, I tie him up with duct tape. And then I turn the brim of his baseball cap forward."

Sometimes, the players are the real monsters.

Re: Memorable Quotes.
 
(After giving an overview of the previous session)
Magnus (OOC): “I don’t see what the problem is. They’re just orphans.”
Queenie (OOC): “The problem is what wanted to hire one of them.”

--

GM: “It took a while for Seven to find [the stairs]. You’re assuming he’s a trained rogue.”

--

GM: “You’re not searching it. You’re RE-searching it.”

--

Ezekiel: “Why can’t they ever be summoning angels?”
GM: “Because then the plot wouldn’t need you.”

--

Fireball: “Hey, Magnus, I hear a disassociated cat-voice over here.”

--

GM: “Alcohol and Fire Mages is not a good combination.”

--

(after losing 6 points of IQ to foolishness gas from botched traps rolls and failed overconfidence rolls, and being dragged away by Queenie.)
Seven: “NO! NO! I can get it this time!”
Queenie: “That’s it, I’m breaking out the squirt bottle.”
Magnus: “Ugh, it smells like wet cat.”

--

GM: “The magebane dust is immune to magical fire. The foolishness gas is—.”
Queenie (OOC): “Flammable. Fireball kills us all.”
Magnus: “Yeah, it’s a flour-based gas.”

--

GM (OOC): “I want a trap that makes people smarter—so they can realize how much trouble they’re in.”
Ezekiel (OOC): “Or just, Delusion (I’m in a lot of trouble).”
GM (OOC): “It’s not a Delusion.”
Magnus (OOC): “It raises their IQ by the same amount it lowers their Fright Check.”

--

Queenie (OOC): “Smash-cut to Seven being tied up in the Japanese Bondage style.”

--

GM: “If they were labeled, they wouldn’t be ‘hidden buttons.’”

--

GM (OOC): “The party doesn’t need ‘Danger Sense,’ they need ‘Seven’s doing something’ sense?”
Queenie (OOC): “Yeah, the ‘It’s been too quiet, where’s Seven?’ sense.”

--

Ezekiel: “We’re going to be fighting Demon-possessed zombie orphans.”

--

Ezekiel: “Oo-oh. I’ll give up someone else’s IQ for ledgers.”

--

Ezekiel: “Any idea what the runes say?”
Magnus (OOC): “Do not step.”

--

(After a critical failure on an Analzye magic roll, that just caused Ezekiel to be stunned)
GM: “The rune blasts back at you with some stunning force, resisting your ability to analyze it. Or, at least, that’s your story and you’re sticking too it.”

--

Seven: “[The door] is neither locked nor trapped—so it means the trap is very bad and on the other side of the door.”

--

Queenie: “Is that a healing potion in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?”

--

GM: “And the Flaming Parade Balloon bursts into the room.”
Queenie: “Wafts, with dignity, into the room.”

--

[after another 5d, 3-hex Towering Inferno spell]
Magnus: “How much to maintain [Towering Inferno]?”

--

Queenie: “I like how all of our fights wind up with about ten minutes of cartoonish pratfalls—not always from the villains.”

--

GM: “Queenie gets into her spice rack and gets out some consciousness herbs—.”
Queenie: “Pepper.”
GM: “Or, as we call it, cayenne pepper.”

--

Cultist: “Who are you?”
Seven: “You’re worst nightmare.”
Cultist: “I doubt it—you haven’t seen what I’ve seen.”
Seven: “Well, that’s probably true.”

--

Queenie: “How many are down there, and should I bring muffins?”
Cultist: “At least four, and, unless Muffins are a metaphor for something else, probably not.”

--

Seven: “We’ve found today’s special friend!”

--

Seven: “What are those?” [pointing to Bleeders rising]
Magnus: “Kindling.”

--

GM: “Zeke, what would you like to do?”
<beat>
Ezekiel: “Survive!”

Re: Memorable Quotes.
 
Another old one from a game several years back, found in a log:

-----

Narrator: As you approach the party, a haggard looking man in black robes staggers up. "Woah, travelers. Stay away - doom is here."

Rehael: "End of the world party, is it?"

Xivilai: "Doom, y'say? What flavor?"

Narrator: He sighs.
Narrator: You recognize the badge of the Sinkers
Narrator: "Beer and sex, mostly." he says, looking resigned.

Rehael: "Led many a man to his doom, those have," Rehael agrees.
