* Chelsea follows Meatshield. "Weird question; is there any way to make heatsinks that won't explode when they fail?"
<Starbot> <OOC> Don't be silly! This is a comic book -- if things don't explode dangerously when they fail, what's the point?

* Meatshield punches the shark a couple times. "Bad food! Bad! This is not Soviet Russia!"
<Phantasm> <ooc> In Soviet Russia, food eat you!

<Meatshield> Just being a smartass but also curious if it turns out to be true... "Atlantis have any good ways to grill Cthulhu?"
<Namora> "Only heat was over open volcanic vents. We can steam Cthulhu, but not grill."
<Meatshield> ... Well, ask a silly question. Meatshield shrugs and helps Mag yank teeth.

<Mag> "Nah, Manticores aren't nearly as poisonous. Or snuggly."

<Chelsea> ~There's actually a book - a science fiction comedy - where the dolphins are smart enough to evacuate Earth before it gets demolished. They leave for humans a message saying "so long, and thanks for all the fish."~
<Namora> "I've read it. It's ... really irreverent."
<Namora> "My cousin, though, did say that he discovered how to fly in much that manner."
<Mag> (( What manner was that? ))
<Phantasm> (( "Throw yourself at the ground, and miss." Douglas Addams ))

* Chelsea waves her hands. "By the angry flame of Muspelheim's blight, you f***ers picked the wrong damn fight."

* Mag takes a moment, then looks at Meat. "Throw me! Throw me throw me!" She bounces.
* Meatshield picks up Mag at the waist and chucks her like a javelin at the Hydra mooks! "Hail cuttlefish!"
<+Meatshield> . o O (Damn it! Should have said 'Frenzy, eject! Operation, frag the bastards!')

<Namora> "I've always wanted to do bowling, but the ball keeps breaking the few times I've tried- be a dear Meat?"
<+Namora> *Namora grabs Meatshield by crotch and shoulder and gives a good 360 spin before rolling him down the grass like an oversized bowling ball- yelling "STRIKE!" as he hits.
* Meatshield balls up as he's thrown and belts out "o/ You spin me right 'round, baby! Right 'round! Like a record, baby! Right 'round! Round! Round!"
<Phantasm> [ You can hear the sound of bowling pins on a strike when Meat hits. ]

"Hello, i am Urnst Ironbanger, a wizard."

(NPC looks at pointy hat with astrological symbols on it) "I would never have guessed."

"So you're saying that The Stars Are Right but The Sundials Are Wrong?"

"How do you know that?"

"I read it in the waiting room at my hatmakers."

"He's a Ghast."

"Well I'm disconcerted myself."

"Urnst! Fireball! Here! Now!"

"Oh well, he has Evasion and his brother has a lot of hit pts."

"Does something bad happen in this game when you roll a 1 on a saving throw?"

"You've been running through hit pts so fast that you've lapped yourself!".

"This time _I_ heal Eimgreit!"

"What? I've got a magic item."

"Never underestimate the power of a good fireball."

(finds charred body of npc during clean up) "So that's what that scream was! I thought it was a wight with no cojones."

When you roll a 1 on 3d6, something has gone very, very wrong indeed.

This was the Pathfinder 2 playtest and most spells do have Crit Fail results. 2x damage is usual.

Jenny: “What’s that green stuff on its feet?”
Mrrosh: “According to Ben’s behavior, slow orcs.”

Mrrosh: “Hey, Crikey, come here.”
Ben: “Me? The name’s Ben.”
Mrrosh: “Nope, you keep saying it, I’m calling you ‘Crikey.’”

Ben: “What do I need to roll?”
GM: “Roll low, or high, both could be fun.”

Mrrosh: “When I get done with the first shelter, I will make one for the nuts. I will make a nut-house.”

Mrrosh: “I’m going to move their lean-to further down the beach.”
Jenny: “They’d better not get fire. That could be a disaster.”

Mrrosh: “See, Jenny, we need to keep them around, so if anything attacks us they can be the distraction.”

Ben: “You don’t need the magic-boom-hicky!”

Mrrosh: “If those berries cause extreme flatulence . . . can we point the orc at the fire and go for an eternal flame?”
Ben: “I’m not adverse to that exercise.”

GM: “A gigantic mosquito, about your size, comes at you from behind a tree.”

The PCs have discovered the magical problem with the R101, on 1st October 1930. It's due to leave on its flight to India on the 3rd, and there is intense political pressure for the flight to be a success.

PC1: "Bringing down the government would solve the problem."
PC2: "I don't think we can do that in two days. A few weeks, sure."
