“All these barbarians from the Frozen North; we could have the four Norsemen of the Apocalypse. They're all War.”

Then a little later...

“I know! The Four Norsemen of the Apocalypse: Raiding, Pillaging, Plundering, and Looting!”

Last night, I ran a Sci Fi Horror game. The PCs are assorted spaceship crew members trying to move through a large space station, after 'rioting' had broken out.

Early on, the PCs encountered a bunch of teenagers looting entertainment technology from an electronics retail store (the doors had been unlocked by some mysterious entity*). They manage to grab one, and then proceed to threaten him with firearms.

PC1: We should make him walk in front of us as a 'mine detector', in case there is any trouble brewing.
PC2**: Great idea, I'll make him do what we want.
GM (Me): So you will try to intimidate him?
PC2: Yeah.
GM: (rolls for NPC, he gets a critical failure) Your intimidation roll worked so well he has defecated in his pants, and has then promptly fainted.
PC3: Throw him in the shopping trolley, and just wheel him in front...

The PCs then discover that none of them actually want to be up front, pushing a trolley containing a stinky teenager. They then just leave him where they found him. Given that five minutes later they were firing through a group of residents defending their corridor, at the horde horde of zombieesque ex people moving in their direction, I would have loved to have seen what they actually did with the teenager.






*One of the players is a forumite. So, not saying much...
**His first game after playing DnD as a teenager.

After using lockpicking to open a locked door in the mage's tower the gullible do gooder brick warrior tells my character

"Hey are you a thief ?"

"Me ? No! This is just a very usefull skill to have in case you forget your keys"

"Yes ... indeed, but we never had the mage's key"

"I can make all keys in the world in advance, it just so happens that I always forget to makes the ones that opens doors locked by our enemies!"

Laughs ensued

One from a while ago:

"I think we're going to have to start a major land war in Asia."

And from today's game:

"Yes. This is magic, not physics."
