Before the game

Mark: “[string of expletives]. With a ‘d!’ Not a ‘g!’”
Bobb and Chaos: “What?”
Mark: “I just mistyped. I was looking for a magic wand assets and typed ‘magic wang.’”
Chaos: “Uh-huh.”
Bobb: “That’s on you. I’m sure you deserved what you got.”
Mark: “Well, I’m on Daz’s site, and they don’t sell that sort of asset. I think the code face-palmed and showed me magic wands anyway.”

GM: “Daska, make a perception check.”
Daska: “Who?”
GM: “Daska. Make a perception check. If you can’t remember your silly made up name, I can’t either.”

--

GM: “Daska, make a Will check.”
Daska: “That looks like a success—eight, by four.”
GM: “Oh, I meant a mythos Will check.”
Daska: “EEP!”

--

Melissa: “I’m some weird, nebulous scarecrow made of bees.”

--

GM: “You punch him square in the solar plexus and he goes flying back. His eyes, however, do not.”
Daska (OOC): “Eeyuu.”

Raquel: “Please don’t shoot me in the back. I’m the healer.”
Daska: “Nah, I’ll reach-around you to take the shot.”
<Beat>
Raquel (OOC): “Comment redacted.”

--

Raquel: “I—I can’t heal bees. I mean, I can, but these bees aren’t injured they’re dead. And I can’t bring the dead back.”
Har’Ron: “It’s bee-yond you?”
<Beat>
Raquel: (deadpan) “Yes.”

--

(Daska was told that when drawing a symbol, it caused her eye to twitch)
Cliff: “I haven’t seen that before.”
Raquel: “No idea.”
Cliff: “You’ll have to see the Wizard.”
<beat>
Raquel (OOC): “Now my eye is twitching.”

--

Skwert: “Welcome to Pink Rest!”
<Beat>
Cliff: “That’s ‘Pine Crest,’ moron.”

--

Raquel: “Why did you guys all physically change . . . and all I got was a change of clothes. And this really cool hat.”

--

Raquel: “Let’s try being nice to people—you catch more flies with honey.”
Melissa: “You’re thinking bees—you catch more flies with [excrement].”

In a Wuxia campaign, as one character is trying to figure out how to improvise a wagon to drag a huge beastie's corpse back to town.

"I've got Craft-18 that says I can put wheels on a sheep."

"Can I be a tank?" is probably the most repeated quote from roleplaying among my friends.
