Surveying a considerable amount of collateral damage to structures in the wake of the fight:

The Ocean-Phobia character states he is not willing to pilot the submarine drone.

Other PC1: "You don't want to be vicariously in the water?"
Other PC2: "Maybe he needs exposure therapy"

Fresh from this afternoon's gaming we have another go at Shadowdark.

"Ooh! More clay jars! Let's see if they have gold coins in them!"


"You see a group of monsters like octopuses with glowing red eyes floating in mid air coming at you!"

"Let us break their pots and take their gold coins!"


"You know those glowing red eyes? They haven't stopped glowing even though the monsters are dead."

"Lets take the eyes and put them in a glass jar. Maybe we can save some money on all this lamp oil we're burning."


"Way to go Garotte (pronounced "Garrett") your natural greed and sacriligiousness has caused the GM to invent Unluck Tokens on the spot!"


"Now hand me one of your unluck tokens and roll a Dex save with Disadvantage!"

"15."

"Now do it again!"

"16."

"One more time."

"17."

"Well maybe that'll teach the Gods to not waste their time cursing you."


"Now it's the Ettercaps' turn and the one in front misses you with his bite. The ones behind him miss you with their flung webbing except for the one in the very back who rolls a natural one and web-poisons one of his own."

"I am an Ettercap! Why am I not immune to Ettercap poison!"

"Slab Stonehammer strides forward squishing the dead Ettercap under his boots and attacks the next one in line."

"The Ettercap in back rolls another natural one."

"Stride. Squish. Smite."

"Natural one. "

"Squish."

"Natural one."

"You know that's four natural ones in a row? This guy in back is like an Ettercap serial killer".

"I am Slab the Ettercapper!"

In a campaign where a PC had to buy freight handling to make things fit on the party vehicle:

GM: "You're looking for a staging area... what's an appropriate skill for that? oh, its Freight Handling, isn't it."
PC: "My most important skill in this game!"
new PC: "Freight Handling wasn't on my radar when I built this character"
PC: "It wasn't on mine either"

GM: "please roll navigation"
PC: "My other most important skill in this game!"

PC with quirk "bad with computers" on someone else flying the drone around:
"Considering we're flying this using a pocket computer, it might be for the best"

"He's the opposite of the Major. He's good with computers and he never gets shot!"

NPC Translator: "They don't have a word for nuclear bomb in their language and I'm not going to add one!"

Same character for both:

Upon return from Barsoom with a wound healed: "A spider knit me shut."

Upon being asked if ready to face a boss monster: "I'll be fine.... As long as the shrapnel doesn't cause fatigue."
