So, yesterday afternoon we met for another session of Carrion Crown and my character (an Elven pyromaniac Alchemist named Paovarian) was catching up the party's Cleric (Goreoff) who had missed the previous day's events due to an episode of the Thalasian Flu (which led to him having to wash all our gold coins).

Goreoff: So you met this guy who will lead us to the secret Vampire Council with whom we will negotiate amicably?

Paovarian: Either that or I can throw 17 Sunlight Bombs at them.

Goreoff(who has Sun Domain): Oooh! Win-win situation!

It says something about my character's sanity when that he agreed to go on a peaceful mission to a Vampire lair with a Cleric, a Paladin and an Inquisitor of the Sun Goddess.

One of the possible (though improbable seeing) difficulties occurred when the stress of being asked to dance with the Queen of the Undead caused our Paladin to undergo a Multiple Personality incident (there was this rather unpleasant event involving tentacles in the last module). He thought he was 4 years old (but still a Paladin).

Little Goreon (who is a 6'8 Half-Orc) didn't want to take his medicine no matter how much his brother Goreoff asked him too.

So, when in doubt, lie.

Paovarian: I've got a special treat for you little Goreon!

Little Goreon: What is it Uncle Pao?

Paovarian: It's _Magic_ and it'll make you strong enough to kill _ All_ the Vampires!

Little Goreon:<glug-glug-glug>

(Adult)Goreon: How did I get here?

There's a reason I don't play Lawful Good characters.

Three quotes about the same character:

"I'm not healing you any more, you only waste it."

"I don't think he has 120 HP at all. If he had 60, and Healing Resistance, it would fit what happens to him a lot better."

"Owing to, err, events, I currently have 20 of his hit points. He wants them back, but I reckon I'm making better use of them."

"Um, Doctor? Would it be easier for the Captain to have sex with a female Zeldroid or a female Gorlon?"

"Man the Torpedoes!"
"Ah, Captain? The prisoner is a lizard and not a man."
"Then Lizard the Torpedoes!"

"Bachman! Get me the big roll of nano-tape and 3 Galactic shot-glasses of hyperglue!"
<intercom clicks on>"Turner? This is Bachman. Get the Chief some hyperglue and you better put it into overdrive. I think he's in a hurry!"

If you wonder we had already encountered Crewman Argent and subsequently ran into Crewpersons Clearwater, Dio and Entwhistle. When we started seeing cases of Cat Scratch Fever there was only one crewman to send for the vaccine and I never did get to explain what "BR-ZZT" stood for in the name of my personal Droid..

Some background -- a joke in the SF game is that the main reason one character is part of the group is because another character has some highly-classified cyberwear, and the first character (a cyberneticist) is hoping for a chance to reverse-engineer it.

My character (a doctor) was examining the remains of the kill-team that just failed to take us out and ran across some unusual cyber-implants. The cyberneticist's player had previously left the room for a smoke break.

Player 1 (the one with the cybered character): Hey, Player 2, we need you for an autopsy!

Player 2 (the cyberneticist): Oh, did you finally die?

A troll in body armour? The only way we can hurt him is to shove a grenade down his pants.
