Back in the 80's, when Ferdinand Marcos had only recently been ousted, we were running a BattleTech campaign. One of the mech warriors was of Philipino extraction, named Szato Corazon. His jumping mech was called "Heart in Flight." (Corazon? Heart? OK.) He had just been summoned by the company commander.

Mitch (the player): "Mech Warrior Corazon Aquino reporting for duty!"

In a light-hearted fantasy campaign I played a megalomanic sorceror, who used to call the other PCs his horde. At some point, he decided to knight one of the other characters. He touched him with his wand, proclaiming "From now on, you shall be known as Sir Erik." The newly promoted character answered : "But my name is Sven !" So, from that time, he was known as Sven, Sir Erik.

Wow.
We were in rare form today.

(About Ninjas)
Ghost: They're just little peasants form the mountains. You can kill them with impunity.
Me: I'd use explosives . . . impunity is a crappy weapon.
--
Shadowvyce (the ninja): How many points would it take . . .?
Ghost: Oh, this'll be good. You can't do that on seven points.
--
Me: The ninja is making more noise than the sonics blaster!
--
Brian: So, do any of them still look dangerous?
GM: No, not at this point.
Brian: Eh. Then I'll just attack whoever's closest.
Shadowvyce: I'm closest to you!
--
Shadowvyce: He was quiet . . . -ish.
Ghost: -ISH!? When you add "-ish" it's no longer quiet!
--
Shutterbug (to Shadowvyce): Wait a minute!
*Camera Clicking*
Shutterbug: I've always wanted a picture of "irony."
--
Shutterbug (to police): You've got guns, right?
GM (as police): Yeah!?
Shutterbug: Good, that's important!
--
Shadowvyce: Tell me you cleaned the hair trap?
Silent Vengance: *Smug Grin*
Me: That's beneath her.
MonkeyFist: She has people for that.
Me (pointing to Shadowvyce): You.
Shutterbug: I want a ninja janitor.
--
GM: Once you get underground you don't see any more homeless.
MonkeyFist: Woo-hoo! We solved the homeless problem!
Shutterbug: We won the war on Homelessness!

My character (Ambrosia) has only been around Shadowvyce for two session and has already dubbed him "the worlds loudest ninja."

Panzerfaust: Oo I'm putting that on my character sheet! "Quirk: complains when he's injured."
Nate: "That's not just you, that's everybody!"

*extended in-character arguement shortened for your reading pleasure*
The party had just finished a fight with a Bomb (Final Fantasy) that had gone thermonuclear. Sivo healed himself after being rez'd and had no FP left to get Nos up to a level he didn't have to worry about death checks.

Sivo: "You're the white mage! I've healed more people than you! [I demand you start pulling your weight!]"
Noslamel (Panzer): "Blee...eeeding..."
Momo: *little girl character* "I'm a summoner D:"
Sivo: "You're a white mage, you have the spell!"
Noslamel: *Desperate whine* "Can I get a heal?"
Momo: *attempts to heal Noslamel*
GM (Me): "Roll it"
*claka clak*
Sivo: "..."
Momo: "..."
Nos: "..."
Me: "Wow a 17.."
Nos: "Hurk!" -thud-
Momo: ToT "Waaaaah!"
Sivo: "NEVER HEAL AGAIN!"

And Momo's player just finished complaining he had no attacking spells..

I forgot one:

GM's 3 year old son walks over to where Shadowvyce was sitting. He went off to get some dinner. The toddler is looking, intensly, at Shadowvyce's laptop.

Shadowvyce: Hey, buddy, are you playing Shadowvyce now?
MonkeyFist: He's doing a better job than you were.
Me: Yeah, at least he's being quiet!
Shadowvyce: Hey! I'm right here!

In last Sunday's fantasy game, most of the party was dealing with a collapsed portcullis at the city gate, but the druid decided to shapechange to eagle and scout ahead. He found out we'd caused enough noise with the portcullis to wake up the Greater Wyrm lairing on top of the tower, and it was majorly ticked. Some fancy stunt flying later, he's hiding inside the tower and the wyrm is going after the rest of us. The druid's player decides there's nothing he can do (?), so he's going to poke through the tower while he waits for us.

About halfway through the fight, we had this OOC exchange:

Player 1 (one of the mages): Are you still in the tower?
Player 2 (the druid): Yes.
Player 1: Are you going to throw your hair down soon?

Where to get good information on a sailing ship…

Jade (Toby) to DM (as Ballista Man) – What’s the range of this thing?
NPC (DM) – Oh, you know, you have to look it up in the book.
Jade – You have a book…to help you work the ballista?
NPC – Yeah, its called GURPS (reaching for the Campaign Manual)

The economics of GURPS

Happy Petal (Lars) – If it a family sword handed down through the generations how do you know how much it cost?
Jade – Cause I had to pay for it out of my character points.

I've been introducing some people at work to various games. Today, we were playing Starcraft: The Board Game.

N: It's like chess, but cooler.
Me (holding up Terran Battlecruiser): Yeah, my queen has a Yamato Cannon.
MonkeyFist (holding a Zerg Queen, looking at it confused): Mine has . . . tentacles coming out its butt.
Someguy (at another table, playing Exalted): I know who's playing the Zerg!

Your story is worthy enough for not 1, but exactly 2 internetz. Funny as hell.

Congratulations, don't spend them all in one place.

I looked up the game and checked out a few how-to's to playing the game...and it seems terribly contrived. I'd probably buy it just to get some figures for a Gurps: Starcraft game.

This was said in the heat of battle, between two PC's brawling viciously in the wilderness. Neither of them had weapons, and they were mainly punching and gouging and slamming each other's heads into things. They ended up rolling down a banking towards a lake, and one of the characters got free from the grip of the other. He then grasped the other character by his muddied hair, slammed his face into the water and shouted "DRINK THE LAKE".
