Hempy the Dire Sheep finally made it into one of my games. One of the players was being hosed due a series of bad GM rolls and a few comical choices when I'd decided "ya know, your life can't get any worse."

Hempy appeared in the game shortly after the hunter was running away from various other demi-godly threats and I felt one more encounter with the otherwordly would suit. Sullivan approached, his character exhausted, his player in a mild euphoria caused from asphyxiation from the insurmountable gouts of laughter caused by misfortune just prior, raises his flail up on high over the head of what appeared to be a normal and undefending sheep. He strikes straight and true - only to fall into the endless 'sheep-space" within Hempy's fluff. His legs humorously sticking out of the sheep.

The harmless demi-god sheep then continued on to torture the wayward adventurer while he attempted to hunt down a deer, letting off mind unhinging dire-bleets whenever Sullivan had a clear shot, spooking said deer, then proceeding to fly off like a paperbag in a light updraft. Hempy did this a few more times following.

The first two attempts on the deer's life were interrupted by the bleet of a sheep that had positioned itself directly behind Sullivan as he prepared his shots. The third, Hempy appeared 'in front' of Sullivan while he checked his rear for the blasted sheepy, only to take a bleet in the face.

His fourth attempt on the deer's life would be interrupted by Hempy as it floated down in front of Sullivans view, landing behind the deer and bleeting, once again, its dire bleet of bleety bleetdom, forcing the deer to take flight of foot into the dense forest.

Hempy's nature, being the inside joke of a one-shot that only involved 3 of the 5 players from a prior game meant that only 2 of the people at the table were incapacitated with laughter while the other two smiled confused at the supernatural events that took place, and the sight of an asthmatic reaching for his inhaler.

Memorable Quote of the day: A morbidly deep toned "BL-E-E-E-E-E-EET."

Supers game (Champions), everyone was describing their characters to the other players. One of the male players was describing his female brick. What he intended to say was that she had a special attack a la The Hulk, she claps her hands together and the soundwave knocks people over. What he actually said was "And I have the Thunderclap!"

Of course, the usual method of getting the Thunderclap involves sleeping with Thor...

Good one, IW :) . I'm afraid we were all laughing too hard to come up with post-worthy responses.

(And to be fair, the player in question is fundamentalist Christian, and it's entirely possible he didn't know the other meaning of "clap" until this incident.)

Edit: almost forgot -- not a quote, but one bit of laughter at a different Champions game came about as the heroes entered a shopping mall. I'm running a speedster in that game. When I noticed that we were entering through a department store, I asked if Speedster Tricks would let me get through the store without being squirted by the perfume sales clerks.

At Gencon Indy last summer, I was running an "Iron GM" session, with three sourcebooks (including Illuminati). So, anyway, the players were in 1950's Egypt, investigating a body that looked just like the US president, Ike. They decided to take the body back to New York with them. Went something like this:

Me: OK, it's easy enough for you to buy tickets for yourselves from Cairo to Berlin, then from there to New York. How do you plan on moving the body?

One player: (mumbles something incoherent) call UCS!

Me: (strange look at player)

Player: United Corpse Service

Have the tee shirt to prove it and everything... ;-)

My wizard had been slightly stunned by failing the Contact Outer Plane spell - turning him into a high-level commoner for 5 weeks - and currently had Intelligence 8 and Charisma 8. But we were attacked by assassins and trashed them, whereupon the city guard turned up and asked us what the hell we were doing.

Me: "They cast the first stone"

*mimics holding up something*

GM: "What's that?"

Me: "The first stone."

The other night in our Shadowrun campaign -- things had gotten kind of hot in Seattle. Some characters left town for Denver, others retired and the players created new ones in Denver. The folks starting in Seattle were offered a job and were told that some locals in Denver would show us around and assist. When the immigrants met the locals and the local fixer, the locals were a bit loathe to take the job. The fixer said, "Come on, guys, it's not just a job." And I chimed in, "No, it's an adventure."

New Player: "Do I need to worry about falling?"
Me: "Only if you don't like that sudden stop at the end."

Gummißear: "I need a big figure. Unless you have something new for me to use."
Me: "MonkeyFist doesn't let me bring my new figures. He doesn't like you using them against us."
