The GM was comparing influence in a particular society, not appearance. Aphrodite, with her distinctive style of thinking, views them as identical.

<Chelsea> "And now we match. The important thing is, if anyone asks us what the stripes mean, like if they're for some sort of cause or something? Never ever give the same answer twice."
<Mag> "That's a good idea." Mag stretches, and digs into the cheesecake. "Like... intergalactic penis day."
* Chelsea snorts cheesecake.
* Chelsea very carefully clears her airway before adopting the tone of voice of a concerned woman on a hearstring-tugging infomercial. "Millions of Tamaranians lost their penises in The Great Gelding, and live in misery because of it. But you can help. For the cost of a cup of coffee, you can help them get their ***** back."
* Mag snerks this time. "Oh my god."
<Chelsea> "Please," she continues in the same pleading tone of voice. "Won't you think of the *****? ...'cuz I know I am."


My players can get twisted.

Session 2 of Storm King's Thunder today and sometimes you find a new character's voice in odd ways. For example, I would not have guessed that my LN Monk would have any sort of aptitude for trash-talking but it showed up today.

Some examples:

(while shooting arrows at the boss Orc)

"Go away! You are disrupting our harmony and our property values!"

"Why are you stil here! Did you not understand my first arrow!"

(while boss Orc is pulling arrows out of his body and snarling at us)

"Boromir says Hi!"

(to orcs floating in the moat)

"Pro tip:As you meditate upon the duality of illusion and reality, that drawbridge you were trying to cross was the illusion part."

Session today, the PCs have been surprised by an armed group that isn't attacking yet.

Half-elf medic: "We don't want to hurt anyone! But we will!"
Bugbear: "I do want to hurt people; but I won't!"

GM: The Energy Vampire grabs Gateway's grandfather and throws the old man at Diamond Jack.

DJ: That's a ranged attack? I could reflect it back at the Vampire.

GW: That's my grandfather!

DJ: OK, I'll catch him instead.
