"Oh look! It's a really shiny sword thrust all the way through a dead body and into the solid stone floor! Perhaps the person who pulls it out will become the King of Mulhorand!"

"Doesn't Mulhorand have Pharoahs instead of Kings?"

"...and wouldn't the sword that made you rightful Pharoah of Mulhorand be a khopesh instead of a longsword?"

"You can't thrust a khopesh into anything. It's shaped all wrong."

later

"Alright Vaska, what do you do when your initiative comes round again?"

"I attack.....I guess the Cleric!"

"So Dalric, it's your turn now. What do you do?"

"I run away!"

"Me too!"

"I slam the door behind me after I run away!"

"There is no door."

"I keep running until I find one!"

"Can I do subdual damage with a battle-axe?"

Seven (OOC): “Did Ashleigh remove the message or did you?”
GM (OOC): “I removed the message. As I was working on the table, setting [Ashleigh] up, it was annoying having ‘boobs’ [80085 on the calculator] staring me in the face.”

--

GM (OOC): “There were too many orphan jokes.”
Queenie (OOC): “We needed more orphan jokes. Morphan jokes.”
GM (OOC): “Ugh.”

--

GM: “Ezekiel cannot examine the ledgers yet, as they still have magebane on them.”
Seven: “I can hold them for him.”
GM: “Seven couldn’t be still for that long.”

--

Seven: “I step out and raise my arms, away from all of my weapons?”
GM: “Do you turn off the hide spell from your armor?”
Seven: “Yes.”
Magnus (OOC): “There he is, officer! The orphan-taker!.”

--

K’Tia: “Are you gluttons for punishment?”
Queenie: “I’m a priestess of Campbello.”
Magnus (OOC): “So, punishment for gluttons.”

--

GM: “Breakfast for a dwarf would be: beer brats, beer-battered fries and beer.”
Queenie: “Yeah, a traditional dwarven breakfast would be at least eighty-proof.”

--

Seven: “Why couldn’t it be ‘Beer’gath?’”

--

Queenie: “Magnus. Do you have a sentient water-bottle spell?”

--

GM: “Female dwarves have beards.”

--

GM: “It’s only a few minutes of you guys being together with people crying out ‘Ah! It’s the Dirty Sextet!’”
Queenie (OOC): “The Dirty Sextet is another book Queenie would definitely have.”

--

GM: “Well, roll your stealth anyway. You could always critically fail.”
[Seven rolls a seventeen, which, is just a failure with his stealth of 18]
Seven (OOC): “That is your fault!

--

Seven: “If I die, don’t leave me down there.”
Magnus: “Right. Viking funeral.”
Seven: “Just take some of my ashes and spread them at sea.”
GM (OOC): “Take my ashes and rub them on people I didn’t like in life.”
(Seven begins laughing, uncontrollably.)
Queenie (OOC): “You’ve got another thing coming if you think death will get out of this group.”

--

GM: “Okay . . . there’s another skill Seven will need . . ..”
Party: “Yeah.”
GM: “Forward Observer. I mean, it’s appropriate, you do have an artillery mage.”

--

GM: “You have the opportunity to do something amazing. DO IT!”

--

Magnus: “This is going to cost me thirty-nine fatigue.”
GM: “When Magnus does something amazing, it’s usually really expensive.”
(Magnus went on to cast three spells, in succession, that were critical successes—two shape earths and one 5d, 3-hex Towering Inferno—so it cost him zero fatigue.)

--

Seven (OOC): “It’s a shame blood isn’t flammable.”
GM (OOC): “At these temperatures—everything is flammable.”

--

Queenie: “Team Lady-Tank, AWAY!”

--

GM: “I knew someone was going to make their save [vs one-half their HT]. That’s just the way these rolls work. But, I’m so glad it was Ezekiel. Because it would mess with him most of all.”

--

Seven: “Okay, anything else we need to spend money on, before the game ends?”
GM: “One-hundred dollars to get everyone’s pants cleaned.”
Seven: “Yep. Fair enough.”

"Where's your sense of adventure?"

"I think it got level drained."

"My character uses his Boots of Striding and Springing to leap away from the ghouls!"

"The ghouls pursue him across the room!"

"Doesn't that take them directly across the suspected area of those spear traps?"

"Ah...THWOCK! THWOCK! THWOCK! THWOCK!.. apparently it does."

(OOC)

"Where's Rob working now?"

"At Uh-Start-up Company."

"One of the family of Uh-Tech companies."

(later)

"My character advances upon the altar to search it for traps."

"She falls through the trap door in front of it."

(...and I almost forgot)

"....and on this new magic sword is the inscription BAR-ETHEL."

"Okay, so nobody named Ethel can use it. Does anybody know anything else about it?"

Mark: “We will make a dumpster fire.”
Chaos: “We’ll be adventuring in the dumpster fire.”
Perkidanman: “It’s our dumpster fire.”

--

Mark: “Yeah, [the space-cucumber] heals you by barfing its internal organs on you. For every HP of damage the person inflicts from eating the organs, they heal 1d6. And [the space-cucumber] heals rapidly.”
Bobb: “I’m pretty sure Star Fleet has hypos! I’m filing a complaint!”

**

While discussing what we want to do until Infinite Weirdos kicks off (hopefully getting Huck Smash back this November), Perkidanman had a character idea she wanted to explore in GURPS so we decided on a Supers game with super-powered Carnies.

**

Mark: “I had created some powers for Running Gag, like the Turbo-Wedgie. She pulls the back of your underwear up and wraps it around your head, then pulls a jet engine out of mallet-space and shoves it in, so you spin on the ground taking damage.”
Perkidanman: “Now my balloon druid doesn’t seem so strange.”

--

Perkidanman: “Abs of Treason sounds like a book Queenie would be reading.”

--

Mark: “You can move yourself at a Move six with your telekinesis.”
Gumby: “Wow, okay.”
Mark: “Glamazon can move you much faster, and you don’t even have to concentrate.”
<beat>
Mark: “In fact, you’ll find it really hard to concentrate.”
Chaos: “Fast-ball! Special!”

In my Traveller game:

"Engage the cloaking device!"

"An excellent suggestion, sir, with just two small problems.

1: We don't have a cloaking device.

2: Cloaking devices down't exist in this universe."

"I thought you used your crotch to disarm him?"

(Context: A fairly short character used an acrobatic maneuver to get enough altitude to knock a tall NPC's gun out of his hand. The player botched his "describe what I'm doing" and was the only person at the table who thought the disarm was being done with the character's fencing saber. For bonus points, the above line was delivered by the player's wife.)

Kay: “I cast mage-hand.”
GM: “It does not work. You’re not sure it’s a thing.”

--

GM: “This is the food redispenser. It takes your order and gives you what it decided you ordered. Not necessarily what you ordered, but what it thinks you ordered.”
Kay: “Almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea.”

--

GM: “As you’re kicking the downed robot, you accidentally activate your mag boots and stick to the robot, causing you to fall down, swearing.”

--

GM: “Pushing the button, you get a little ‘enh-enh’ and a light saying ‘biometric rejected.’”
Kay: “I give it the bird and say ‘what do you think of that biometric?’”
GM: “The door says ‘biometric rejected.’”

GM: “You strain your brain, but realize, when they say you make orange juice from concentrate, they don’t mean the maneuver.”

--

GM: “All you know is that it hurt.”
Kelche: “That’s not information!”
GM: “It is information, just not the kind you’re looking for.”

--

GM: “And a gallon of maple syrup to yourself.”
Glamazon: “Yeah.”
Kelche: “I tell the fortune of the other half.”
