"So here we are, six characters in search of a level boss."

".....and now you have found the Star of Mo Pelar."

"Yes, Mo was the eldest of four brothers and was followed by Larry, Curly and Shemp Pelar."

"The module calls these Huge Spiders but they are actually only size M."

"Oh, tarantulas as big as a man. That's not so bad."

"Is this Star Sapphire that's five inches across and glows in the dark and got us all fireballed by an Efrit for 41 pts of damage good for anything else?"

"Um, no."

"Truly, it is the Star of Shemp Pelar."

I shot an arrow in the air
In who it landed, I do not care...
A mage character of mine, proficient with longbow, but not very good with it. It didn't really matter if the arrows hit anything, the idea was to get a LOT of arrows in the air at once. When the enemy quickly moved from an open formation to forming their shield wall, it was fireball time. (widened)

GM: Make the spell roll. Just don't roll three sixes.
Me: (Rolls) You just had to say it, didn't you?

The crit fail nearly took down the entire dwarven mountain. Thousands of dwarves had to flee from the earthquake.

Me (to the rest of the party, when we met up after the chaotic exodus): I'll never admit to anyone what happened back there.

Two characters, one a doctor, the other a psychic healer, are discussing the third, another psychic with severe brain damage.

"She has extensive damage to <neurology technobabble here>, it's rather unusual for the concept of humor to survive that."
"There are more things in humour and mirth, Doctor, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."

Angel: “It’s like a fridge.”
Teo: “You can’t get hurt in it.”
Angel: “No! My organs are soft and squishy. It’s not the moving, it’s the stopping and bouncing around.”
GM: “It’s like, when you’re watching a post-apocalyptic movie and those rusted out trucks you use for cover.”
Bree (OOC): “But it’s somehow still moving. It’s the Nokia of trucks.”

--

Angel (OOC): “Teo probably calls a tape measure a ‘roll of inches’ or something.”
Teo (OOC): “Yeah. Everyone, get your inch rolls out.”
GM (OOC): “Is that what the kids are calling it these days?”

--

Bree (OOC): “At this point, she doesn’t need ice cream. She needs whisky.”

--

Bree: “Ugh. Now I know where I saw him—he’s my neighbor. Who wrote this book and how do I file a complaint.”

--

Bree: “Oh my God, you took a fire person into a crowded movie theater?”

--

Bree: “Of course it bounced my ability back at me—it’s a mirror!

--

Angel: “Angel is going to buy a book on friendship—magical friendship.”
Teo (OOC): “Friendship is magical.”
Bree (OOC): "No, it’s Friendship is magic—that’s not a book on friendship, that’s a My Little Pony sticker book.”

Overheard on a convention this weekend:

That's when you call over, "The proper term is 'murder-hobo', thank you." XD

Simon: “Hey Google: How do you say ‘smear yourself with mustard and say ‘so-long’ suckers!’ in Chinese?”

--

Mark: “Bobb doesn’t want me to tell this joke. But, since you’re always complaining ‘she needs pants,’ I’ve decided to meet you half-way.”
Chaos: “I’m very scared.”
(Beat, sees the picture)
Chaos: “Justified.”
ETA: Finalized picture.

--

Jouhaze: “It’s the opposite of a bag of holding—whatever you’re looking for is on the bottom.”

--

(after six consecutive, failed stealth rolls)
Katsari: “You guys know I can hear you?”
Jouraali (OOC): “Through the ship. Space is supposed to muffle sounds, but it’s not helping you!”

--

Jouraali (OOC): “The first shot was a Zaphod-shot. He was so surprised you shot him, you had to shoot him again to make him fall down.”

--

Jouraali (OOC): “Ohh, he only got two body on five dice for that hit.”
GM (OOC): “It doesn’t matter. The guy got five body on three dice for his HT check.”

(Rolling a 1 is 0 body, rolling a 6 is 2 body, any other number is 1 body, Hero rules—we make Hero references for good/bad rolls because, to us, it’s funny.)

--

GM: “Let’s see if he can do anything about this . . . yes . . . he can explode.”

--

GM: “You can’t stop the alarm from here. But, you can change the alarm from the ‘wee-woo’ to something more like you find in a club.”
Jouhaze: “I’m going to drop the bass.”

--

Jouhaze: “Our stealth mission is proceeding as planned—“
Jouraali (OOC): “As expected!”
Jouhaze: “Yes, the mission is proceeding as expected. We’re all fine. It’s going fine. Make sure the engines are warmed up and ready to go.”

Priest: “The devil exists as a metaphor used by the church. It’s not a person, who is the source of all evil.”
Jolie: “It’s amazing. Everything you just said is wrong.”

--

Jouraali (OOC): “Technically, you can take one more point of damage before your leg is destroyed, and you need a cybernetic leg.”
Jouhaze (OOC): “Yeah, I can make you one.”
Verex (OOC): “Can you do that immediately?”
Jouhaze (OOC): “I’m sure there’s a mop around here somewhere.”
Jouraali (OOC): “You’ve played too much Rimworld.”

--

Jouhaze: “It’s a first aid kit for the ship. It’s duct tape and the sealer to keep the coolant in.”
Verex: “But, I’m not a ship.”
Jouhaze: “Close enough.”

--

GM: “Carbonite is also one of the most durable substances in the universe.”
Jouhaze: “Excellent! We have our chest-high wall.”
Verex: “Your job is to keep my leg from getting hit again.”

--

Katsari: “You must be the keymaster!”
Jouraali (OOC): “Shouldn’t I be the gate keeper?”

--

Katsari: “It’s four-thousand years before the battle of Yavin.”
Jouraali: “That’s great. What’s a Yavin?”

--

Katsari: “The place we’re going orbits a black hole. So the good news keeps getting gooder and gooder.”

--

Jouraali (OOC): “’Eldritch’ is an old Sith word. It means ‘enema.’”
GM: “No.”
Jouraali (OOC): “It’s an old Sith word that means ‘supernatural?’”
Katsari (OOC): “That’s probably closer.”

--

Jouraali (OOC): “Yeah, Katsari has a really high piloting skill—she’s packing a lot of bonuses on it.”
Verex: “That’s why we jumped out the airlock.”
Jouhaze: “What’d you mean we, kemosabe?”

--

Jouhaze: “She wants everything set up as a rave. Loud music, flashing lights . . ..”
Jouraali: “You cannot have my lightsabers as glowsticks.”

--

Katsari: “It’s time to play chicken in the asteroid belt! Who’s with me?”
Jouhaze: “Well . . ..”
GM: “They sorta don’t have a choice.”

--

Katsari: “Rex (RX), is this a safety protocol to keep us from leaving without everything?”
RX-0: “Negative. This appears to be more of a plot contrivance.”

--

Jouraali: “Telling the person with lightsabers to ‘slice the computer’ means something different. Sorry.”

--

Gummi version of Jouraali's outfit.
