Default Re: Memorable Quotes.

We just started a space opera game. One player is running a Fex -- basically a catman. This player also missed the first game, so the party planner didn't have notes on the character yet.

Player 1: What weapon skills does your Fex have, Player 2?
Player 3: (before Player 2 can answer) Balls of yarn, laser pointers ...
Player 4: Balls of paper ...

I should use some of those for "Cat-Men from Mars"

PC1: That's the first time I've seen you display normal human emotions, PC2!
PC2: Why, thank you. I've been trying to practice.

Wouldn't those actually be his Enemy disadvantages? ;)

Given your protagonist's current situation, laser pointers could be quite amusing.

More like a Vulnerability, Weakness, or Susceptibility, or perhaps a Trigger for a -5 point Compulsive Feline Behavior. ;)

Was asked to explain what inebriation was, by my 12 year old daughter. As I listed the physiological and cogitative impacts, her twin brother interrupted me and said "... what Dad means is you temporarily go down a level, and you lose some HPs".

On an emergency sprint from San Diego to Peru, this exchange occurs at Machu Pichu, three days after they left:

Jasmine (15-year old girl): “Oh, crap. Give me the satellite phone.”
Siegfried (mage): “What’s up?”
Jasmine: “I need to call my folks.”
Tom (FBI agent): (Handing Jasmine the phone) “Now?”
Jasmine: “I told ‘em I was running to the store to get some soda . . ..”

"If you're done with your thirty minute ferret battle..."

******

Due to a botched spell, we were each affected by a different illusion of the end of the world, but I was the only one that made Will roll to disbelieve the effect.

Sean: The earth is splitting open!
Tamara: The sky is burning!
Me: It's slightly warm!

******

GM: It's not going to attack you back, so just keep rolling until you get a hit.
Sean: <roll> Miss. <roll> Miss. <roll> Dammit. <roll> Damn. <roll> Arggh. <roll> FFFFUUUUU....

Drake: The four of us are metahumans—we have powers that the rest of this world’s inhabitants don’t normally have.
Bernie (Alien): Ah. What powers do the inhabitants of this world normally possess?
James: Overwhelming and abject stupidity.
Drake, Diamond and Louis: (Stare at James in shock.)
Bernie: That would be a good indication of why [the shapeshifters] chose this world to hide out on.
