James: “Because if I caught the guy, I’d put him in a hurt cannon.”
Arin: “A hurt . . . cannon?”
James: “It’s like a hurt locker, but more permanent.”

--

GM: “Make a perception check.”
James: “Six, so, by critical.” (James’ PER is 17)
GM: “Now, make a fright check.”
James: “Four—waste of a perfectly good, hard Critical Success.”
GM: “The driver has been replaced . . . by Sabrina.”
James (Physical tic of my left eye twitching)
GM: “You critically succeeded your fright check.”
James: “That might not have been by enough.”
(Sabrina is a practical joker who has developed a complex about James. His Precognition, and included Danger Sense, have allowed him to avoid all of her jokes.)

--

Teo: “How did you know fire would work on it?”
James: “Doctor Hibbert.”
Teo: “He’s an expert on monsters?”
James: “Nah, it’s just his cure for everything. Mine too.”

--

James: “If this gets any more weird, it’s going to challenge my love life for complexity.”
Angel, Duke, Duncan, Matt, Teo: “Not possible.”
GM (OOC): “The word you’re looking for is ‘unpossible.’”

Maid Knight: “You’re very coherent for a crazy person.”
James: “Don’t let that put you off, there are times I’m totally incoherent.”

--

Maid Knight: “What are you looking for?”
James (Goes into a twenty minute explanation detailing the “Shattering of Jool” and his efforts to find her fragments including details about why he thinks a fragment is here, how and the logic used to make these determinations).
Maid Knight (After recovering from mental stun): “No. Why are you here, on top of this roof, right now?”

--

James: “They’ll also tell you that I tend toward the paranoid.”
GM (OOC): “That’s what you think they’ll say.”
James: “No, they say it to my face.”

--

James: “Yeah, I’m working on a costume.”
Arin: “Do we need to stage an intervention?”

GM: "I won't have you threatening the city. If you really want Undertrove's help, help me win the election."
Cookie: "I'm not threatening. I'm offering to be an example of why hiding doesn't work."
Evan: "...erm. What can a bunch of outsiders do in a dwarf town's election?"
Evan: "Do we even constitute a 501(c)3?"
Cookie: "A what?"
Evan: "I... don't know where that came from."

From today's game

(Krak is holding a severed head by the hair and banging it against the wall)

"All you screaming dead people can get out now!"

Later

"You! In the skull! Krak said get out _now_!"

Also (to a pair of iron golems)

"Krak not like you! You got bad breath!"

Also later

"Here. Bleeding Girl need healing potions much more than Krak." which is a terrible thing for a barbarian to say to a rogue.

To Strahd

"Eternal life? Where you get eternal life? You dead."

Even later

"Eternal life huh? Not talk so much after Krak drive quarterstaff through chest!""

Terry: “I think letting Blinky loose on them would constitute a war crime.”

(Blinky is a shoggoth living in the basement, not a clown. “He’s” reasonably friendly and cordial, but, no one really looks at him. He talks through the basement door.)

--

Heaven: “Are you familiar with ‘hentai?’”
Blinky: “I’m a tentacle monster living in the basement with access to the internet. I am hentai!"

--

Heaven: “Hey, Ana, remember Ghostbusters?"
Ana: “Um, yeah . . ..”
Heaven: “Specifically Ghostbusters 2?"
Ana: “Yea-ah?”
Heaven: “Think we could put Blinky in one of those things?”
(beat)
Heaven: “And spray it all over the enemy. Talk about a war crime!”

--

Terry: “So, what do we do with her?” (Indicating a captured enemy scientist)
Blinky: “I’ll fire up the Barbie!”
Heaven: “No!”
Terry: “That’s cannibalism!”
Blinky: “Only for you.”

GM: “Make a Research roll.”
James: “Three!”
Lux: “James finally figures out how to use Google.”
James: “Apparently, you don’t just keep hitting ‘I feel lucky’ until you find something close.”


GM: “Make a fright check.”
James: “Seven, so, by a lot.”
GM: “The guy’s head splits open and a snake-head comes out.”
James: “Punch to the face—eight, so by nine. Number 34, do not change into a snake, it never helps!” (link to Evil Overlord List.)


(at the end of the previous quoted fight)
James: “Is Maid Knight okay?”
GM: “She’s kinda frozen up.”
James: “I’ll gently shake her. Hey, you gunna be okay?”
Maid Knight: “Eep. Yeah, I think so. Just not gunna watch Harry Potter by myself for a while.”
James: “Yeah, don’t even think about Dreamscape.”

Bliizar: "What is anyone afraid of?"
Evan: "Forgetting. Being anchorless. Having the ground shift beneath your feet and the sky cave in over your head."
Wendy: "... there we go. Earthquakes."
Evan: "...oh, yeah, I guess the literal interpretation works too."
