GM: ...long description of the crashed golden sun that the players ally want them to fix, after said ally kind of broke it while doing them a favour...

Player (OOC): It is totally the death star.

GM (OOC): It is a good death star.

later...

Abyssal Player (IC): I can totally fix it, it will take five years but only if we use a few million tons of soulsteel.

Sidereal Player (IC): So we can fix it but we need to slaughter a few million people?

Dragon Blood Player (IC): This is not a good idea. The sun isn't supposed to be fixed with the unending agony of millions of souls!

Solar Player (IC): Maybe someone else has the soulsteel and we could steal it?

Which is basically the idea behind a Steiner Scout Squad: If you send out a "Scout" lance of Assault 'Mechs, and nothing survives the encounter, you're the only side with intelligence.

PC1: "What if I just shoot him in the knee?"
PC2: "He could bleed out, there would be a lot of bone fraagments and there is an artery. Maybe the ankle, less bleeding even if you do destroy the joint and all blood vessels."
PC1: "But then he might still run away!"
PC2: "If he does much running after a .50 BMG round through the ankle, he's probably not human."
PC1: "How do we know that he is? Lacoste saw some freaky chained spirit leave the other guy when he cut off his head!"
PC2: "No offense to the big guy, but dude really can't handle his magic mushrooms."
PC1: "Ok, can I shoot this -ing Raul guy in the stomach? He might die, but you'd be able to talk to him first."
PC2: "What about the term FIFTY CALIBER BMG is unclear to you!?"
GM: "Hydrostatic shock is usually not a significant contributor to terminal effectiveness, but if you want to shoot a guy in the abdomen with 750 grains of half-inch bullet at just over a hundred yards, maybe he could be the exception that proves the rule. The temporary cavity would be huge and there's a lot of blood-rich organs close by that you really don't want destroyed. Not to mention arteries. Depending on HT rolls, he could be dead in thirty seconds. If he survives the first three to four HT checks, though, he should live up to half an hour."
PC1: "So was that a 'no' on the gut shot?"
GM: "It might surprise you to learn that while .50 BMG rifles are excellent when you need to kill a car, as you've so aptly demonstrated, they are severely limited as Less-Than-Lethal armament."
PC1: "Fine! I resist my Bloodlust. We can take him prisoner, then, if he's smart enough not to run."
PC3: "What happens if he runs?"
PC1: "He dies tired."

Seven: “OOH! I bet Fireball is excellent at making popcorn.”
GM: “Yes, Fireball does have cooking.”

--

Queenie: “I have decided, for Queenie, as she learned the Common Language from her native, that the word for ‘Kill’ is the same as ‘soup’ so all of her battle cries are comments on the delivering of soup.”
Tharn: “Her enemy is the Soup Nazi?”
Queenie: “Soup Nazis killed my village.”

--

Queenie: “He had too much soup.”

--

Tharn: “AH! Fireball, get this guy off me!”
Fireball: “I’m tryin’! He’s also fire!”
(Fireball is a living fireball spell)

--

GM: “Queenie can’t quite reach him this turn.”
Queenie: “Ah, I can’t deliver him any soup!”
Seven: “Soup train is a-comin’!”

--

GM: “And he is at negative thirty-four hit points, and goes down.”

--

Queenie: “I guess her silver mace will just be like a wolf’s head.”
Tharn: “Not a ladle?”
Queenie: “Ladle works!”
Tharn: “Are you sure you’re not a Halfling?”

--

Queenie: “Queenie’s backstory has become much more complicated.”
GM: “Do you want me to re-make her as a holy warrior who serves the goddess of food?”
Queenie: “Sure, that sounds fun!”

--

GM: “Does she need exorcism? Would boiling the Hell out of food count as exorcism?”
Tharn: “Yes.”
Queenie: “I think so.”

From this afternoon's session:

"I'd rather kiss a dwarf!"

"The line forms behind me!"

"Why are you following me?"

"300 gold pieces."

"Well, we did find one nice place in Sigil."

"Yes, and it costs 10 gold pieces a night too."

".....and so Lathander cured me of my madness and told me to come to Sigil and aid the Doomguard. Isn't that the wildest story you've ever heard?"

"No, just two days ago it was a guy brought back from death by Saint Cuthbert and sent to Sigil to aid the Free League. At this rate I think we've got 13 more iterations to go through."

"A world where steel is more precious than gold. You'd think there'd be some way to make money out of it."

"They make money out of it already."
