Contessa: “Question. Can I survive without oxygen?”

Thayne: "Another critical success?"
GM: "Well, kinda."
Thayne: "Sucky."
GM: "Um, no, that's just three points of damage. I rolled a three. Take three, they're small."

--

GM: “Would you like to do a smash or a grab and crush?”
Thayne: “Which is better.”
GM: “Well, smash is more likely to work. Grab and crush is more cathartic.”
Thayne: “Well go with ‘more fun.'”

--

GM: “You’re pretty sure Star Fleet needs more werewolves.”

--

Thayne: “Because without arms, you can’t cast spells. We know that, right?”
GM: “Um, sure. We’ll go with that.”

GM: “You haven’t had to be in werewolf this often for a long time. Not since Burning Man.”

Sylvia (OOC): “Master Roshi?”
GM (OOC): “It’s the only old man figure I could find!”
Contessa (OOC): “Makes as much sense as anything else. But, I’m even more suspicious of him now.”

Contessa is getting undressed in the hangar and changing into a space suit in front of the other players.
Sylvia: “I don’t have another question for Alice, but I do have a question for Contessa: what are you doing?”
Contessa: “We’re in space; I’m getting changed.”
01 (OOC): “When in Rome . . ..”

GM (OOC): “Sylvia would never want Contessa [the soul-collector demon] in a Star Fleet Uniform!”

--

Emalia: “They must be using some form of archaenotech.”
Sylvia: “I don’t know what that means.”
01 (OOC): “Now you know how it feels!”

Thayne: “I don’t know. I’ll do the Hokey Pokey.”
GM (stunned): “Um, everyone stares at you. Then at Contessa.”
[They have deduced Contessa has mind control powers.]

"When the Holy Champion meets the shady end of the table will he even be able to figure out what they do for a living?"

"Could you give us a copy of your fee schedule? We'd like to be able to figure out how often we can afford you."

"No, when I haven't exterminated a sentient species for a while I think things are going above average."

(from a flashback)

"Sweetie? Mommy and Daddy need to leave town on business for twenty years. Will you be alright if we leave you alone?"

"Sure Mommy! I haz fun!"

So, I'm in TTS, prepping for our Sunday Game. I've got the interior of a building they're approaching mapped out with assets and am trying to build walls around it so I can obscure it from my players, when I start having some alignment trouble with some of the pieces I'm using. Hand of Bobb has just gotten up and come in to see what I'm up to.

Me: "Why is it doing that?"
Bobb: "Why didn't you just put a hidden zone over the interior, and if you felt the need, you could just put a roof on that.
Me: "Well, you see, the problem with that is . . . it's a great idea and I wish I'd've thought of that an hour ago."

We were messing around in the game channel earlier, and the player of our spellcaster started a Lina Inverse Dragon Slave, calling on Cytorrak (fella who empowers the Juggernaut and several of Dr. Strange's spells) for power to amplify it. Cytorrak asked for something in return.

Chelsea: "I got a little Russian orphan."
Cytorrak (NPC): "You offer a soul that is not yours to trade. For what you are asking, you need to offer something of yours."
Chelsea: *hesitantly* "I got pancakes..."
Me: (OOC) Seriously, you're asking an entity on the scale of an Elder God for a boost in power, and you offer him pancakes? :)



Chelsea: I feel like I owe you for that. Do you accept payments in Hostess Fruit Pies?
Cytorrak: Not even a god can resist that yummy fruit filling... :9

From my Fate Core Supers Game...

Our heroes have just rescued an uplifted chimp (Simian Templar) from a corporate tactical team and rival android centurions. The centurions belong to a mad scientist known for his woe-bots.

Wildside: (in horror) They're Woe-Mans....

(Yes, I am looking for more bad Woe-puns).

After the PCs realize that the chimp's scientist/handler was framed for distributing the meta-gentic drug to the public.

Gateway: I'm back to suspecting the monkey.

Later:

Primate: (angry, Hulk-like) Not Simian, George. Simian stupid. Simian soft.

Wildside: (Horrified again) Not Simian. He's Furious George.

(Thank you guys for the monkey name puns a few months back.)

After they've finally killed the all the nasties, and the first cyclic on the poison in the spell-sword hits:

[Goblin healer]: "Why didn't you tell me you were bit by the medusa?!?"

[Spell-sword]: "We were kinda busy at the time."

--pause--

[Several people]: "And you were a statue!!"

More messing around in the channel as we were discussing the movie Stripes and the EM50 Urban Assault Vehicle, aka "one heavily-armed recreational vehicle."

Doc: Nice rig. I want one.
Chel: Yep. We should totally steal it.
Doc: No.
Chel: It'd be fun.
Doc: No. ... No.
Me: Cut to: EM-50 driving down the road with Chel at the wheel as Molly Hatchet, "Flirtin' With Disaster" blares.

"I am not a goblin! I am a short green dwarf!"

"Hey! You know me! I am all about the burning hands!"

"Is his polearm sticking up out of the quicksand?"

"No"

"Then I use my Magic Hand spell to tie my rope around whatever is sticking up!"

"That would be his neck."

"Can't be helped."
