*Mabel pauses. "Ta do--Talk to Captain Scarbelly turnips, update diary, Examine--" she pauses, then pulls up the false bottom. "travel logs, update diary... sleep." She looks at the diary, and pulls it out. "...Think this might just be what we might be lookin for."
Lissa: "He didn't get the turnips!"
Frank: "Maybe he already ate them?"
Mabel: "I think that might be part of the man's name. ...Wonder if he slipped on out again?"
Frank frowns. "You mean... first name 'Scarbelly', last name 'Turnips'?" He thinks on this quietly for a bit before saying "His parents must have hated him."


Lissa: "I can slice up turnips, but I'm better with dessert"
Lissa: "I can slice up pirates too, but I am NOT cooking them"


Mabel: "... If Lady Scarlet will let said golem come with us and we can keep Miss Lissa focused to intimidate them?"
Frank: "Honestly, I think she's scarier like this."
Frank: "If they try to threaten her she's just going to talk about dinosaurs. They won't know what to do with that."
Lissa: "I'm not scary, I'm a cute unnatural abomination of magic not a scary one."


Mabel: "...Well, at least we know where he's been."
Frank: "And 'where he's been' is everywhere. Don't tell me he was possessed by a tourist?"


Scarlet: "Possibly item 3 is more important than 2."
Mabel: "Number three possibly leads to number two."
Scarlet: "A very valid point."
Lissa: "What about the turnips?"
*Mabel is about to say something, but pauses, then says, "...We'll get some for dinner if they're in season."

Lissa: "So it sounds like he didn't get eaten by the pirates, so must be the turnips."

<largely clueless Warhammer GM and players>

"What's this symbol here at the bottom of the message?"

"I wish I knew. The book doesn't explain anything."

"Let's ask Eric when he gets back from the john."

<only possessor of Warhammer minis armies at the table gets back>

"Oh that? That's the symbol of Tzeentch, Third God of Chaos."

"It's a shame your character doesn't know that."

"My character hasn't even picked up the Read/Write Talent yet."

"Mine neither."

"Mine had to learn that Talent before he could switch to the Wizard career."

<later after much book consultation>

"Ok, what's the result of the Minor Miscast Magic?"

"Ah, it looks like the next creature born within a mile will be mutated."

"That's probably going to be like a squirrel born with your face."

"I also pick up two Blinded conditions."

"Is that like one per eye or what?"

"Well at least you won't have to look at that squirrel."

He's a nice guy, for a vampire. Of course that's like saying he's a nice guy for a mobster.

<shortly after Stefan Schmidt wizard-in-training has inflicted horrible birth defects on all the squirrels in a 5 mile radius by rolling on the Minor Magical Mishap Table while trying to open a magical lock>

Dresden Schmidt (OOC) "Um, I will take this blunt instrument and gently tap on the lock" <rolls a 98 a critical failure on the ST check> "Um, let's try that again."<rolls a 99>

Friedrich Schmidt (very much in character) "Gimme that!" <rolls a crit success>

GM: "You have not only smashed open the lock, you have knocked the false bottom out of the chest where they were hiding the good stuff."

Katarina: says in a voice that sounds weird and almost artificial, like what would be heard in one of the more mad science Domains, "Happiness is mandatory. Are you happy, Citizen?"

Katarina: "Honestly, he [Strahd] strikes me as the kind to reward any winner of such a [power] struggle with the spoils of war."
Keiran: "On the other hand, he's definitely the kind to get stuck in the past."
Katarina: "Curse of a vampire."
Keiran: "Yeah. The dead don't change."

Gareth: "Can't choose your cards, just how you play them."
Katarina: sings, "o/` You have to know when to hold 'em, / know when to fold 'em, / know when to walk away / and when to run. / You don't count your money / when you're sitting at the table, / there'll be time enough for counting / when the dealing's done. o/`"

<Vegmonger> "Bard at a tavern goes like dill on pickle!"

BaroviaGM: just because you do not like us does not mean we have not blessed you
