While discussing/explaining how to do a GURPS BattleTech game:

Mark Skarr: "And remember: Just because you can create a psychic blueberry muffin as a character . . . there's no reason a GM would let you."
Sweetooth: "but why not sounds totally legit"
Mark Skarr: "While there is a much more specific answer, the short answer is: It doesn't fit into the story the GM wants to tell."
dunami5: "One could argue when the DM had session 0 with his/her players they all agreed on a campaign revolving around a bakery and its mutated goods :P"
Mark Skarr: "If that's what the game is going to be about, then that would be fine. But, BattleTech/Mechwarrior is not known for psychic powers, sapient baked goods nor any combination of the two."

Melissa: “You can work for me. I’ll pay you to test my poisoned food.”
Skald: “You’re going to feed me, and pay me to feed me? You’re my best friend ever!”
Raquel: “Definitely a teen-aged boy.”
Daska: “Definitely. We’ll not talk about what’s missing.”
Raquel: “We don’t know if it’s missing—and I’m not examining him that closely.”

--

Melissa: “All right, brain, I don’t talk to you much, but what do you know that I don’t?”

--

Daska: “Do you have anything that will put the rat to sleep?”
Raquel (OOC): “I don’t have a sleep or binding spell—the GM said they were too OP.”

--

GM: “The 3rd ring will be nicer places, but more expensive.”
Raquel: “Yeah, but less stabby-stabby.”
Daska: “More gabby, less stabby.”

--

Raquel: “Yeah—this isn’t puberty. And I’m pretty sure it’s not even a metaphor.”

--

GM: “And now we’ll check in on Melissa and Skald.”
Melissa (OOC): “Everything is on fire and covered in honey.”
Raquel (OOC): “Skald is screaming, but he’s not sure if it’s in horror or amazement.”
<beat>
Raquel (OOC): “But, he’s sure this is still the most excited he’s ever been.”

[NOTE: Will is a rogue modron.]

<Drake> Xerxes is a humanoid creature?

<Xerxes> He’s an outsider, but a human.

<Drake> Not a valid target for __ person spells, then?

<Xerxes> Tiefling are outsiders.

<Drake> Well then.

Drake doesn't take enlarge person.

<Will> Doesn't work on me either.

<Will> which means you can't

<Will> double the cube

Gurps Traveller. The pc are looking for a missing person and start to ask around.

Vargr corsair: "Okay, I go to the next Vargr, the one who is roasting cats on a stick over a fire in a garbage bin."

GM (who has not described any npc at the location): -

Other players: Grin

GM: Grins also, then "okay, because this is a space station at the rim of the empire, his burning garbage bin is a hologram, and the cats are made of soy beans. He happily sells you one, but has not see your man."

It is for moments like this that we play the games.

GM: “These guys are coming to take the garbage. To the dump.”
Skald: “AHA! I hide in the garbage.”
GM: “You could do that.”
Daska (OOC): “You could hide in the wagon.”
Raquel (OOC): “Or follow them.”
GM: “Nope, going with hiding in the garbage—roll camouflage.”
Daska (OOC): “It’s the impulsive thing to do.”

Melissa: “What do my bees say about what Skald is doing?”
GM: “They said he climbed into a box and got thrown into a wagon, and apparently took a nap.”
Raquel (OOC): “They say he saw some people, giggled manically, and dove, head-first into a box.”
Skald: “That’s exactly what I did.”

--

GM: “They have a lot of different animals-on-a-stick.”
Raquel (OOC): “In her search for chocolate, she makes the mistake of getting a ‘Brownie-on-a-stick.’”

--

Raquel: “Hey, guys . . .. Where’s Skald?”
GM (OOC): “He’s getting trashed.”

--

Raquel: “I’m gunna sit down. That’s making me sick. Raquel will go back to the library-proper, sit down, and put her head down for a bit.”
Daska: “That’s not good. The magic person thinks magic is bad now.”
Raquel: “I still like magic, that’s just not good.”
Daska: “It’s fine, it just makes my eye burn.”
Raquel: “That’s just because you haven’t peed yet.”

Raquel: “You remember what a fire-hose is, right?”
Har’ron: “Yeah.”
Raquel: “It was like drinking from one.”

Melissa: “No! I can’t do this without anesthetic. I rub some herbs on the doll, and then eat some.”
Raquel: “I was wondering who needed to be anesthetized—you or the doll.”

Any skill, if you try hard enough. And that sounds like something asked of the BPL.

Harvey: "I've never met anyone like you."
Traci: "I'm a medium."
Harvey: "I'd call you a 'small.'"
Traci: "Yeah, I'm also on the run. I'm a small medium at large."
<beat>
Traci: "It was a joke."
Hana (from another game): "No, jokes are funny."

After a traumatic (and non-work-safe) statement made to Chi.
GM: "She's standing there blinking, you think it might be morse code."
Traci (OOC): "I break out a morse code translation app. Chi. Dot. EXE. Has. Stopped. Responding."

Simon: "So I come up before any other 'Simons.'"
GM: "Good save."
