Ilzo walked into a magical trap that caused him to believe that the rest of us were goblins about to attack him. So he attacked us. A couple of rounds into the fray, this dialogue occurred:

Initiative tracker (me): Leopold, it's your turn.
Leopold: Already?
Me: Yeah. Combat goes much faster when there are no enemies.

"It's a dead Halfling."

"Why are we finding dead Halflings? We're looking for stolen pigs."

"Hark! It's a damsel in distress!"

"But still no pigs?"

"No, but she's being chased by Beastmen with the heads of goats."

"Um, are they _carrying_ the heads of goats or do their heads just look like goat's heads?"

".....and the woman runs into the cave."

<shakes head> "Too stupid to live."

".....and in the cave you see two demons wearing the flayed skins of pigs."

"Well that's one problem cleared up."

"We accidentally released those two demons when we used gunpowder to blow open the sealed entrance to the hidden shrine."

"I told you she was stupid"

"At least it explains that noise like thunder the night before last."

"Ask her if she killed that halfling."

"....and your prized pigs were killed by these two demons who we killed and whose heads we brought you and that's why you owe us that gold crown you promised us."

"And they wuz going around the woods with heads like goats?"

"No, that was the Beastemen we killed."

"I thought you said you killed demons."

"We killed demons _and_ Beastmen. It's been a confusing couple of days."

"Ask _him_ if he kiled that halfling."

"Would you stop going on about that halfling!"

A result of me talking faster than I was thinking:

"News has spread around the village, and a mob has gathered in the square with titches and porkforks."

Anna: "It helps if it's plugged in."
James: "It's plugged in--it's where I get my [adult entertainment]."

Jouraali (OOC): “I brought him two legs. He has his choice of right legs.”
Verex (OOC): “Now I just need someone to attach them.”
Jouraali (OOC): “Oddball [the engineer] can do it.”
Oddball (OOC): “Absolutely. I’ll rivet it right on.”
Verex (OOC): “Because I am a starship.”
Oddball (OOC): “You will be when I’m done with you.”

--

Jouraali: “I don’t know if I can block that many blaster bolts.”
Kat: “His leg can.”
Jouraali: “I think his leg is at its limit.”

--

Jouraali (OOC): “That’s less Star Wars and more Spaceballs.”

--

Verex: “Can we solder some of the weapons from the zombies onto the pit droids and reprogram them as our security droids?”
Jouraali (OOC): “That sounds like a catastrophically bad idea—I support it entirely.”
Oddball: “Can I?”

--

Jouraali: “Wait, what? We can program Daredevil!?”

--

Jouraali: “Can you reprogram one of them to think it’s his [Verex’s] leg? That way it’ll keep jumping in front of blaster bolts.”

--

Jouraali: “That’s okay. The Force is my senses right now.”
Kat (OOC): “The Force had its fingers in your ears?”
Oddball (OOC): “The Force asks for consent.”

--

Jouraali: “My Force Push is anemic, and I don’t have Destroy Droid yet.”

Jouraali: “Oddball takes more damage from environmental dangers than from combat.”

GM: “Oh, that’s not cool. You’re going to need a new Jedi.”
Verex: “How dead is she?”
Jouraali (OOC): “Not only is she merely dead, she’s really, most, sincerely dead.”
<beat>
Jouraali: “That’s 96 points of damage, less her DR, it’s 87 points of injury. She’s at 5, she can take 49 points. At 50, she’s dead. She’s rapidly closing in on -10 x HP. Her bioplas body suit is the only reason there’s anything left to find.”

--

Verex: “I remember seeing the doors close and Rex saying it was a plot contrivance.”
Oddball: “I can try to open then again.”
Verex: “Are you a plot contrivance?”
Oddball: “I’ve been called that before.”

Oddball: “Do you want me to install a radio [in your leg]?”
