Interesting things happen when your players start alternating gaming night and movie night.

Samson: "This looks like a good place for camp."
Lance: "I don't know. I feel like we're being watched, like something's just waiting on us to fall asleep so it can pounce."
Samson: "Relax, it's just you're imagination."
[Later, after being ambushed and tied to steaks by a goblin tribe]
Lance: "This is my imagination?"

Terra: "Ugh. What do they want?"
Samson: "Hey, Lance, you can understand them, why don't you ask them?"
Lance: "Hey, you! With the skull!"
Samson: "...in their language..."
Lance: "Oh, right." *phrases question in goblin*
Random Goblin Guard: *Says something in goblin*
Samson: "So?"
Lance: "Yeah, they want to eat us."

Goblin Chef over by stew pot: *singing unintelligibly* "Bork! Bork! Bork!"
Lance: "They have a swedish chef. We're doomed."

DM: The goblins guarding you step aside and an elderly goblin walks up to you. She's decked out in ritualistic attire, carrying a skull-topped staff, and is laden with several pieces of jewelry. She paces in font of you, looking each of you up and down, before turning to the crowd that's gathered in front of you, making a proclamation.
Samson: "Lance, what's she saying?"
Lance: *looks at notecard that was just handed to him* "She says, 'Two of these have been tainted. The red one and the green one carry the scent of demons and must be offered to Shala-Toh to preserve the purity of the village'."
Vick: "Shala-To? I think that's the name of a monstrous water god."
Xaltaer: "I wonder who they mean with 'the red and the green one'?"
Terra: *looks at Vick and Xaltaer* "Gee, I wonder."
Vick: "I'm more interested in what they mean with 'offered to Shala-Toh'."
DM: As if on cue, several goblins make their way towards Vick and Xaltaer, cutting them off their steaks only to tie them to a different one, each person facing the opposite way. Marching to the beat of a pounding drum, they carry the two of you to the nearby river and toss the log in.
Xaltaer: "You just had to ask, didn't you?"
DM: As you float down the stream, you hear a faint rumbling in the distance. *Flips coin* Vick, you can see the source further down stream."
Vick: "Uh oh."
Xaltaer: "Let me guess: We're about to go over a huge waterfall?"
Vick: "Yup."
Xaltaer: "Sharp rocks at the bottom?"
Vick: "Most likely."
Xaltaer: "...Bring it on!"
[Beat]
Xaltaer: "Boyahahahahaha!"

Xaltaer: "Well this is just perfect."
Vick: "Hey! We survived, it's not that bad."
Xaltaer: "We're lost in the jungle, far away from our friends, who are being prepared for dinner by a horde of savage goblins, and we have no idea where to find them? How is this not bad?"
Vick: "Well, it could be..."
Xaltaer: "Don't. Say. It."

Vick: "Hey Xaltaer! I found a guide!"
Xaltaer: "Vick, we're in the middle of the jungle with no one around for miles. How could you have found a guide?"
Vick: "I just asked around. Isn't that right little guy?"
Squirrel: *Squeaky rodent noises*
Vick: "No no, it's not you. He's always like that."
Xaltaer: "...are you talking to that squirrel?"
Vick: "Something I learned as an acolyte. Had to master all of the natural languages." *turns to squirrel* "Please continue."

Terra: "I can't believe that happened."
Xaltaer: "We saved you, didn't we?"
Samson: "You flew in, hurling balls of fire, riding a flying bear, who had flaming claws, spreading chaos and mayhem and cackling like a lunatic as you burned the village to the ground. And you call that a rescue?"
Xaltaer: "Best kind of rescue."

DM: “So many games, but my free time measured in Planck.”

DM: “There is a sudden loud 'bang!' of wood splintering from the main entrance. The front door, which is reinforced with iron slats, has been forcefully kicked open. The runes that normally protect the entry way do not activate, and three cloaked figures enter.”
Spirit: “I've watched too much of Jojo's Bizarre Adventures this week. I cannot help but think this (https://youtu.be/VoOW1Vvl2oU?t=5s).”
Midnight: “Ha! That's exactly how I'm picturing this scene, now.”

Beryl: “If we make it out of this, Spirit is so getting kicked in the shin in the most childish of manners.”

The party recently rescued the barbarian's NPC wife, who's tagging along with them.

Local god, to Colette: "You have taken the crown, but you have only these four followers? You cannot be a queen without a populace."
Colette, to the barbarian and wife: "You two, get busy."

From the previous thread:

"I did give you the leftovers of that cup."

"Yes, and the tea will dry up before I can do anything with it. I mean, what do you expect me to do with it? Legend Lore won't work, there's no magic to it seeing as it was used in an antimagic field, even if I knew Gentle Repose it doesn't work on tea. What am I supposed to do? Cast Summon Crime Lab?"

(As a side note, there's no divine casters in this party, so nobody can detect poison)

"Couldn't you have Febreezed that thing?! Ugh god, now I'm never working on Walking Dead ever again..."

Last session:

DM: Behind you, you hear the voice of your rival, and someone taps you on the shoulder. She's standing behind you, smirking in the glow of the lamps.
Player (Aimon): Now, I'm pretty sure Aust would know to step in and pull me away before things get too... hectic.
Aust: Naw, you kidding? I haven't seen a good show in years!


DM: Alright, Gredith, the Basilisk lunges at you.
Gredith: Don't hit, don't hit...
DM: ...19... for 8 damage.
Gredith: Welp, I've been killed in one hit.
Player (Zed & Aimon): Join the club.

DM: Hey guys, I changed the Death Rules again!
Everyone else: No!!!
DM: So, what's going to happen to you, Gredith? I don't really know that much about your character, but Hel is always looking for more followers.
Gredith: No, thanks.
DM: Really? You want something worse?

Gredith: Guys, my toes are stone!
Aimon: Well, it's better than missing an arm.
Zed: Or having half of your face ripped off and press-ganged into the clergy of Hel.
Aust: On a side note, I can turn into animals now!
DM: Your time will come...

This is an interesting DM :smallbiggrin:

Yeah... It's definitely the most fun I've had in a while.


He doesn't technically like killing off characters, he just like ruining their lives in interesting ways (so he says). His first edit to the death rules are as follows (5th edition):
1) If you get dropped to 0 or fewer hit points, you die.
....
Then, when Zed died in one hit (Direwolf attack THE FIRST NIGHT WHILE HE WAS SLEEPING, of course), he decided that he would let him live if he willingly decided to serve the goddess of the underworld. After that, the rule changed to:
1) If you get dropped to 0 or fewer hit points, you may either:
A) Die,
B) Roll a die, on an 11 or higher, you are stable, on a 10 or lower, you are dead.
C) Let me screw up your character in an amusing fashion. They are now stable.
And so it came to be that Aust's cousin Aimon decided he did very much indeed fear death, and so he lost an arm.

HE PLAYED THE VIOL HIS ENTIRE LIFE. :smalltongue:

Now, right before the "Death" of the third character in as many sessions, he has decided to revise his rule to be less... deadly.
1) If you get dropped to 0 or fewer hit points, you may either:
A) Die,
B) Roll a die, on an 11 or higher, you start normal death saving throws, on a 10 or lower, you are dead unless you let me screw with your character.
And that is how Gredith the halfling rogue started to petrify... from the feet up.
I can't wait for my turn. :smallbiggrin:

Sadly, I had to go look that one up. However, now that I have, I'll file it for future use.

Ray: I'm retroactively putting this on my bucket list.

3G: I must admit to being slightly confused. What happens when we hit the meteor?
Ray: To be honest? Haven't a clue. Nobody's ever tried to pile this many paradoxes on top of each other before. The way I look at it, there's a fifty-fifty chance that we'll either fix everything or wind up our own grandparents.

Ray: Welp. It's now or never. *whips around and punches Lisa in the face*
Lisa: *stumbles back and transforms into Venom!Thing*
Ray: So totally saw that one coming.

3G: Do all humans require violence to prompt the proper release of bodily fluids or is that trait unique to you?

Ray: You know, this probably would have been a tremendously thematic battle if I hadn't dropped the whole Corey-Amnesia-Angle.
GM: Ya think?
---

GM: Your distraction was so distracting that you distracted the ambush.
---

Ray: Nuh uh, nope. Since we're going to be gone with the blastwave in a few minutes, it's more like extremely temporary deafness.

GM: Congrats. You've successfully given reality a hangover. Unfortunately, reality is about to wretch and you're sitting in her stomach.
Ray: It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it.

Vladim: "I'LL FIGHT ANYONE IN THIS TAVERN! AND YOU CAN BET ON THE FIGHT!"
Eilowyn: "Oh, great, Faerun Wrestling Entertainment. Just what we needed."

DM: "What does the Sanctuary look like?"
Hael: "Ever played Bastion? Imagine The Bastion, but more rustic."
Eilowyn and DM: "Wait, more rustic?"

Vladim: "This is getting too intellectual for me, I'll go drink some vodka."
Malthazar: "Hael, my apprentice... Take this, become one with nature and go help Eilowyn."
DM: "The Earth Essence is absorved through Hael's skin, melding with him as green runes shine through his flesh. He is engulfed in a green vortex before reappearing as an animal - which?"
Hael: "Right, I appear as a cheetah, but with dark fur and green spots, and when I step on the ground this green energy is visible through my feet."
Vladim: "I stop drinking the vodka that I'm drinking, scratch my eyes, put the bottle down and pick up something stronger."

Edward: Should we really be here? We're tailing [the bad guy], surely he's bound to come into the public carriage.
GM: At this point, he enters the carriage and sits down at your table.
Edward: Of course he does.


Josephine: I'm just gonna punch the guy. *rolls a quadruple crit*
GM: Yeah, you just punched him straight through the wall of the train. There is no more wall.

In this system, rolling a 10 on a d10 is a crit. You then roll again, and another 10 is another crit. That was four crits in a row. With Josephine's super strength, we didn't need to roll for damage. :smallamused:

Sorry to be nitpicky, but that game's about as much of an MMO as Unreal Tournament. Sorry, but there's enough people mistaking it for a MOBA that we don't need to add any more fuel to that fire.

And now, something on-topic:

Paladin: "You wouldn't believe how many times I've told someone that I worship Lymnieris (http://pathfinderwiki.com/wiki/Lymnieris) and they reply with 'I'm so sorry, I didn't realise that was the arrangement' before digging out their wallets."

Rita: “Yes, I saw him rent the same room from before. He had a giant spider with him. Luckily everyone was too busy drinking and playing darts to notice or I would be still mopping urine off the floor.”

Spirit: “Everyone keeps forgetting about Azurah in Nabru, who's one of those sidequests that you blow off disk 1 thinking you don't have time, but that you really wish you did early on when you finally backtrack two disks later.”
DM: “Disks? I think of this D&D campaign more of a Steam download with a free new race DLC.”
Spirit: “Content quantity is too high for a Steam retroclone, but it sticks far too close to gaming roots to be a modern triple-A title. Overall, I peg it as a golden age of JRPG multi-disk game.”
DM: “I'll take that as a compliment and concede to disks.”

Oh, there are some bandits in the forest? TREX!

I've had people actually try this in-game. I'm not kidding: when my players first visited a mayor city they went to the nearest bank and deposited some money. Seventeen levels later, after the campaign's end, I asked each player to narrate what happened to their characters.

Rogue: I become the world's most powerful assassin and thief, undetectable by mortal means. Who I want dead, dies, and what I desire stolen, gets stolen. Eventually, [necromancer] will probably turn me into a vampire or something, because I don't want to die from old age.

Fighter: I become a mighty mercenary and guardian of our floating island, equipped with many magical items. Many try to conquer the floating isle, but no succeed as long as I stand guard.

Ranger: I lead an army to destroy the dragon that long ago drove me from my home, then retreat to silently contemplate Ulaa's will. From time to time, I may emerge from the hills to do some work of good, and over time become a legend.

Necromancer: I focus on creating warforged and sentient undead, then after centuries of preparation lead them in a full-scale assault against humanity. Oh, but right before I do that I collect the interest on that loan I made back when we were in Baldur's Gate.

And (Thief), I know you're coming up behind me with the torch.

Me: Look, it's not my fault you guys are in cages! You try for assault and battery,
things like this are going to happen! A dragon is still a person, I told you.

Me:How is it my fault you didn't get to loot anything? More loot will be forthwith, I said.
I convinced her to send us in her abusive ex's direction, didn't I?

Me: You DO realize that we've gotten more gold out from both suing the ex,
and settling (She-dragon)'s false charges than we would've from the raid?
Besides, I set another little raid aside. Who wants to smack some cultists?
Thankfully, they still had fun, despite hiccups.

Maybe his parents always wanted a daughter, and thus the lack of love led to his life of crime?

Pretty sure it was after. The war "ended" about 170 years ago, so only a few ghouls remember the old times. Strata, Stitchheart, and Fan Knife are three such ghouls.

Liches have, historically, been everything from a tragic villain to a reasonable authority figure to twisted nightmares of nature to straight up big bads. A redeemed lich is within accepted parameters of expectations.

A bank on the losing side of a deal? Now that is worth some discussion.

Ray: We're now the Time Force Rangers!
Lisa: *smacks Ray upside the head*

Side note: I am convinced that the future the Time Rangers are from is secretly evil. Think about it: Humans all receive gene therapy in vitro to have "the perfect genes", a.k.a. eugenics. Every time they deviate from what's expected of them, they're told that they're "changing the future", but are never told how. Standard Operating Procedure on someone returning from the past is memory wipes. Every single criminal we see is a 'mutant'; i.e., made up of 'the spilled genetic materials' so not genetically modified (though still looking monstrous, because Power Rangers). Are they trying to breed criminality/aggression out of humanity, like that Doctor Who episode with Simon Pegg? There's WAY too many unanswered questions for me to trust Time Force HQ and the theory me and my brother have is that They Live -style aliens took over the world in secret and use the time travel power to stay on top.

PPS: That scene near the end of the series, where Frax/Dr. Ferix realizes that he was wrong about mutants, that they aren't all bastards and tells Nadira not to give in to hatred as he's dragged off to what for all intents and purposes is his death, every time I see it, I tear up. And I don't even particularly like Power Rangers, and I dislike that season in general, but that one scene... It gets me every time.

One does not develop ninja skills without your family line having practiced the art for at least a century.

Fortunately, Fan Knife is included in her own family line.

Helps to live nearly two centuries when learning anything.


Viridia: “Yooo! Moony and the D! Where you at?”
Doc: “Sounds like a great rock band name.”

Moon: “Hey Viridia, I found something that'll hopefully help with all the weird crap we've been dealing with.”
Doc: “The poor thing is gonna work overtime with us.”
Choro: “I must admit, I am curious. What exactly does your team do?”
Moon: “We have made running into trouble pretty profitable thus far.”

GM: “The donkey actually seemed rather concerned about someone's safety; possibly her own!”

GM: “Armoise's group of thugs were heading inside the room while the vast majority of the crowd was distracted.”
Moon: “Huh, those the gangsters who made a deal with?”
Viridia: “They'd prefer to be called ‘uncompromising professionals’.”

Viridia: “We have enough bottlecaps to pay for the therapy we'll need after all the murders we've done.”
GM: “A small filly who was sitting nearby seemed to have heard that last thing, and whimpered slightly.”
Viridia: (thinking to herself) “The world seems to have a way of summoning people as soon as I say something mildly incriminating. Wonder if there's a way to abuse that?”

GM: “He looked at Doc with not-quite hostility.”

You're right. Getting the teenage girl some clothes before we get arrested is probably a better idea. :smalltongue:

Actually, despite appearing to be 15, Josphine is a living porceline doll and 84 years old.

She was naked* because she was shielding Scamp (aged 11) from an explosion that probably would have killed him for a short time.

Yeah, it's that sort of game.

*I believe she still had her undergarmets and Scamp gave her his jacket, so not completely naked. Naked for a 1920s setting

Anyway~



Quotes from an old pony game Digo reminded me of the other day.

Cast:

Wah-Ching Yu- Mysterious earth pony spy, gender unknown.
Knives C'Pone- Unicorn rogue, descendant of a legendary DJ
Springboard Jackie- Pegasus pirate
Heal Turn- Unicorn cleric
Scarlet Blaze- Hot-blooded earth pony mercenary

Jackie: Arrr, we going to looty their booty!

Knives: It all made sense! She was a hitmare, sent to wub out the enemy!

GM: She generally prefers close-combat, but the loud ZZZZZZAP noise the gun makes is very satisfying.

Knives: Oohhh, I do so need something to protect my delicate flesh from being, well, undelicatated, but the glitter bomb has glitter.

Heal Turn: Not that he didn't appreciate his work healing others and the help it provided ponies in town, but it just got tiring to listen to ponies complain every day. "Why shouldn't I eat that, it was tasty!" "What do you mean it costs money, you should do it for free!" "It took half the time to Rez my husband last time I was here!"

Jackie: *buys leather armour in the market*
Nick Nack: A wise decision my friend. It comes to you from the British Empire across the great sea.
Jackie: Really?
Nick Nack: It has a 'u' in it's name, no?
Jackie: ...fair point.

Scarlet: I'm back!
Merchant: Waaah! Don't do that to me! I thought you were going to do some jobs?
Scarlet: I did. *slams a bag of gold down on the table so hard that it cracks* I did some deliveries.
Merchant: But you were only gone a few seconds!
Scarlet: Yeah. So, anyway, I'll take those shades. Don't bother to wrap them.

Knives: Not a creature was stirring, because that would be silly. What would they stir? They aren't alchemists or cooks!

Yu: There are reasons to sneak away alone. Romancing the tentacle monster is not a good one.

Heal: OH MY CELESTIA IS THAT A BEAR AND A SHARK WHAT THEY HEY?!

Heal: One wish? I don't suppose wishing to set you free would endebt you towards me in gratitude?
Genie: What, and give up my real estate? In this housing market? And don't try that wish-for-more-wishes trick either. The lawyers will never finish with you.

Knives: Knives would like to equip her Knive, if it pleases the court

Having been in that situation in an RP, yes, yes it is. XD
But that led to an an interesting adventure at the clothing store, so it was worth explaining to the police why she was naked. Not that they really understood the intricacies of polymorph spells.

Fan Knife: “…what? Is it a drug or something?”

Viridia: “Lightning ball! You go up to the clouds, grab some lightning, and squeeze it into a ball shape. I used to play it with my mom.”
Fan Knife: “Did she throw it at you?”
Viridia: “Yeah! Helped me learn how to use some of that Pegasi voodoo in a way that wasn't...y'know, useless. You can't play it with Earth Ponies, though. They get a little frazzled.”
Fan Knife: “For reflex testing at school, they made us wear metal weights around our legs, and then they rented out a pegasus to shoot lightning at students from the sky, and if we got hit, we failed. Was it anything like that?”
Moon: “I get the feeling they were testing very different things with you.”

DM: But, but, but, just think of the POWER!
Vena (Player): Yeah, you're probably right. That thing is pretty scary. It can't be a good idea.
Aust (Player): You know, if you were to dual wield, I think great things will happen.
Kalan (Player): Please don't.

Vena (Player): I... think I'm going to try and cut it off.
Aimon (Player): WHAT? There's an orc right in front of us! Hit it, not me!
Vena (Player): Nah, I'll go for it.

Aimon (Player): ... Yes. Are you really going to do this?
DM: I think it would try to defend itself, don't you?
Aimon (Player): I suppose so.
DM: Good. Riposte will work nicely.
Aimon (Player): That could kill her!
DM: Nah, I changed the death rules, remember?

*Some time later*
DM: Okay, out of character for a second. If you don't agree to keep the arm, you will die. Almost certainly.
Aimon (Player): Yeah, but I really don't think Aimon would do anything else.
Aust (Player): Some things are more important than living to tell the tale.
Vena (Player): Amen to that.
Aimon: Alright, I'll raise my head, and stare Hel in the eye. "Go **** yourself."
Aust (Player): ... Did that just happen?


DM: Alright. Back in the real world, all y'all clustered around Aimon's body see his arm and what looks like a large portion of the inside his torso dissolve into nothing. He's definitely dead.
Aust: So... ya think I banished it?
Vena: Not likely. (Player): OH MY GOD, I'M SO SAD!

More pony quotes.


Nagapon: Hsssss! I've got you pony!
Knives: Ha! Got your wallet!

And the whole time, bolts of magic energy flying from her horn in wide eyed panic, is Knives shrieking the battle cry of her people;
Knives: AAAAAAAAAAAAH! AAAAAAAAAH AAAAAAAAAAAH AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!

Jackie: That was the strangest battle cry ever.
Knives: The C'Pon3s are a cowardly lot. Alternately, really into yodeling.

Knives' battle is interrupted by the sudden appearance of a pony, wearing a monocle and riding an alligator. Because really, that is certainly not something you expect to see every day.
Heal: Hullo, Knives! Have a bit of assistance! I'm off to see how Jackie is doing. Good luck!

Jackie: *The pegasus coughed up a lung full of water, squid ink, and a couple of her own feathers.* Ick, how did that get in thar?

Yu: Because, y'know the crab would need a bodybuilding montage before coming back for vengeance.

Knives: And then we all stab the poodle out of Princess Monster WifeMiniboss.
Jackie: The miniboss has a poodle inside? Dang, that is evil!

Scarlet: I know we were supposed to bring her back, but... she kinda smells, really bad. I'm sure the captain will understand.
Jackie: Arrr, I was half eaten by gelatin and then violated by a fish-smellin' tentacle monster. Her decapitated smell ain't nothin' I can't handle.

Nick Nack: Friendship is a powerful force, especially when packed tightly with black powder and a fuse.

Scarlet: These are a true warrior's weapons! I will slice and dice and shred evil into julienne pieces! HaHAH!

Knives: Could you imagine if I'd somehow missed my morning coffee? "Suddenly, America IN FLAMES" the news would say. Also, "Unicorns: Sighted and Real!" they would say. "Unicorn arsonist flees burning country, giggles like a leprechaun" they would say still more. it would have been a good news day.

Jackie: Scarlet, let me buy it off you. It ain't a real sword, but me left knee is telling me it'll be needed in our next venture. Here, I'll give ya 15 bits for it.
Yu: But, doesn't Jackie have two left knees? Which one does the telling?

Nick Nack: Friendship is a powerful force, especially when packed tightly with black powder and a fuse.

Knives: Could you imagine if I'd somehow missed my morning coffee? "Suddenly, America IN FLAMES" the news would say. Also, "Unicorns: Sighted and Real!" they would say. "Unicorn arsonist flees burning country, giggles like a leprechaun" they would say still more. it would have been a good news day.

I'm literally crying because of how funny these were. Oh wow those were good times. ^^;
Thank you for the memories.


GM: “It's stealing from a dead guy, and desecrating dead bodies is a crime. However, because it's happening to Equestrians, Fan Knife doesn't really care.”
Doc: “Pretty sure the dead guy won't complain either.”
GM: “Fan Knife does care about the fact that the cleaning duty tends to fall to the youngest sibling, which is her. Don't make teenagers do more grunt work then you need to.”
Doc: “We'll try to keep the blood splatters from our murdering self-defense low, but no promises. If anyone in that basement tries to kill us then we'll have to kill them right back.”
GM: “Isn't Doc the one with the Good Natured trait?”
Doc: “Yeah. That's why the worst he'd do to an enemy is shoot them dead.”

Viridia: “Viridia got [River] the best deal possible that doesn't involve murdering the buyer's family. River should be able to make a shotgun out of sheer gratitude.”
GM: “Unfortunately, this isn't Exalted. However, I now have a character concept for that game.”

Viridia: “You people and your witchcraft ‘math’.”
GM: “For the purpose of the setting, the two are very close!”
Doc: “Interestingly, that is even true with some of the game mechanics. Speaking of mechanics, Doc versus a toaster (http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/digoraccoon/426506/56580/56580_original.png)!”
GM: “Toaster repair isn't a dump stat.”
Doc: “Hey, I offered to put points into toaster repair but you told me not to.”
Moon: “That's both sad and hilarious. At least it's just toasters, and not say, dishwashers.”

Because at the end of the day, the Bag of Tricks is a cool guy. He laughs at your jokes, pulls some lame pranks, and is great at breaking the ice at parties. Sure, he's the butt monkey, but you know he's okay with it; at the end of the day, he'll still buy you a beer if you're feeling down.

The dull grey ioun stone is just a buzzkill and sits there staring at everyone until they feel awkward. You don't joke about guys like that, you just slowly edge out of the room.

No, no, it's a textbook. Textbooks have sidebars, too.

Doc: “Personal experience tells me that the medical plan is better in the long run.”
GM: “Due to access to actual healing magic and a presumably benevolent civil service, Equestria presumably had generous medical programs during the war. Having a powerful branch of the government with major interest in advanced healing magics would only assist in that.”
Doc: “And yet no spell with an SPF rating of six billion [against nukes].”

There's an Oglaf comic strip called Cartomancy, where an oracle makes a visitor choose between only two tarot cards: The Lovers, and Death. Turns out this is the oracle's tactic to get herself laid.

It's a shortcut. Much more common in post-apocalyptia given how hard it is to string together years of mental discipline when it's a challenge to eat another day, but it does not end in a happy path. This is a big part of the reason shamans are rare in the Fallout Equestria universe, despite the advantages that visions and spirit binding offer. Disclaimer: Headcanon. Logical and based in reality, but still headcanon.

Strata: “The appeal of being in forbidden cults never really caught on in this country; the only real cults of Nightmare Moon that ever existed were restricted to bat ponies.”
Viridia: “Do you know whether those cults had any symbols of rank, like, say, ugliness? Because I met this one Priestess of Nightmare Moon who was really ugly. Like...haunting. She looked like an avocado that had sex with an older, more disgusting avocado. Not gently. Like, it was hateful. There was something wrong with the relationship and that was the only catharsis they could find without violence.”

Viridia: “You don't see a band of Earth Ponies strutting around in charge because they can lift up a piano.”
Strata: “I would have thought that would be a very useful skill, up there.”

Viridia: “But, it's like, unicorn magic is really sweet. They can shoot fire out of their faces, move things without touching them, make force fields, and stuff. And all Pegasi get is flying, which Unicorns can copy so what even, and making wind go faster. And Earth Ponies don't even get that! Their magic is believing in themselves or whatever.”

Strata: “Now see, that's stupid, because that's earth pony magic. Earth ponies have the strongest constitutions on the planet, and have a natural knack at working with most material objects. They live the longest, too.”
Doc: “I wouldn't consider having a strong constitution magical. More just evolution cause we can't fly out of danger or conjure up a magical shield. We just kind of... well, take it.”

LOL! Strata says earth pony "magic" is having strong constitutions, but Doc argues that it's less magical and more mundane hardiness.

The part about being able to work with any material might be true-- The game rules say that earth ponies can sub their special talent for any skill check in designing/building something if the object being made is related to their talent. In Doc's case, any kind of medical-related device. So maybe that's the magic (nothing spectacular like flying or spellcasting, but if we get some downtime and materials together)...

Context
Basically, demons wanted the heart to put an angel back together to sacrifice it to bring apart the end of the world and were only missing the angel's heart. The group walked into what they realized as a trap, so their plan went from "secure the heart on route to bringing back the angel to put on our side" to "crap, we need to destroy this heart". The heart also had healing abilities, so the group reasoned that ingesting it might actually restore the character's sanity (nWoD 2.0 Hunter with homebrew angels; character in question was Integrity 1 and actually suspended from TF:V because of it). It actually worked, too!

So yeah, probably the only time a PC ate an angel's heart raw in a non-evil campaign.

Zebra Mare: “What is a filly scout? What is the meaning of this? Why are cookies being offered to us? Is this a tribute or a bribe?”
Viridia: “Okay, I'll level with you - we don't actually have any cookies. I'm Viridia Dawn, this is Doc, Moonyshadow, Choro, and Strata.” (Leans in and whispered conspiratorially) “She's new.”

Maybe it's just that I finished the 2009 Ghostbusters game yesterday, but every time I read this I hear Viridia's lines voiced by Peter Venkman...

I don't think the shenanigans in my old local group got that complicated.

Since two of the PCs were played by me alone, it wasn't nearly as complex as it seems :smalltongue:


GM: “Rolling for Moonshadow's possible damage, so that Moonshadow can get this sad part of her adventuring career over more quickly.”

Don't PbP GMs roll for the players, to hasten the already slow pace of PbP?


Doc: “Poor Supply Route.”
GM: “She's in a better place now. She might get a train dropped on her in about thirty years, but otherwise she's in a better place.”

Should I ask for context, or bathe in smoothing mystery? Choices, choices...



Strata: “Honestly, you two are being more polite then most of the ponies I knew back before society collapsed.”
Doc: “I get that a lot.”

BEFORE the apocalypse? Really? How bad was society BEFORE the big event? :smalleek:

I see, like the wizard of Oz, there's a trick behind the curtain. :3

Sometimes, though also takes into consideration what the roll is for.
For example, one GM will roll our saving throws whenever a villain casts a spell on us, so the effects can be immediately applied instead of waiting for us to roll the save, and then determining if it succeeded or not. At the same time, we are allowed to roll saves for targets of our own magic.

Our Fallout game takes place 30 years before the events of Lil' Pip in the FO:E fanfic. Supply route was taken by the Unity project and dissolved to become part of the alicorn mutants there.

In the Fallout fanfic, there's a fight where Lil' Pip drops a train car on one of the alicorn mutants. So the joke is that the mutant could have been part Supply Route.



BEFORE the apocalypse? Really? How bad was society BEFORE the big event? :smalleek:

According to some of the journals and terminal entries we've found, society in this area was sliding into becoming a lot like the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Mass corruption, crime, racism, etc.

Well, there are much more embarrassing people to get your butt kicked by. Hermione is at least a mild challenge if you don't have magical defenses.
Well Hermione got pretty badass, but in this case the GM seemed to be refering to 1st year Hermione, and we did have magic defences of sorts. HIDDEN CONTEXT! Also she'd just been injected with some kinda power-boosting serum, which made the pink sparkles from her wand hit a lot harder.

Most ponies have to make do with just two. Caesennia Victricia Variala Vatia has four names, which means she's earned her stripes and then some!”

Ceasennia: “The names of the children are Chain Checker and Floor Pump.”
Doc: “Chain Checker and Floor Pump? Yikes, they must have had loving (and completely drunk) parents.”
GM: “Well, more likely their parents were high, but the general effect is similar.”

Choro: “So, the ponies have zebra names, the two foal zebras have pony names, the zebra commander has four zebra names... and I think I now have a headache.”

Ceasennia: “I must profess that I am confused. I was briefed that the only pegusi in Equestria lived in the clouds.”
Moon: “There aren't any settlements down here, but there is the occasional pegasus born on the surface, or falls down here due to some bad choices.”

From an old campaign:
"You rolled so badly that your eyes roll back into your head for two rounds."

From a character creation session of a new campaign:
"You do realize I intended to run a heroic campaign?"
"Yes."
"And yet none of you made a Good character?"
"Yes."
"And all of you are either Chaotic, Evil, or Both?"
"Yes."
"Well then this should be fun."

And from a short D&D campaign I ran while camping:

DM: "The wizard spends the hour trying to reinsert his intestines, and oddly enough, succeeds."

Roy: (Wizard):"I cast Summon Weed."

Roy: "Is ten pounds enough force enough force to shove a fist up a human anus?
DM: "I don't know, why!?"
Roy: "No reason"

DM: "You're a dwarf. There is no way you're getting drunk on cheap human beer."

Richard "D*ck" Butt (Fighter): "If sex with three people is called a threesome, and sex with two people is called a twosome, I think I finally figured out why so many people call you handsome."

Roy: "It says my mage hand can lift up to ten pounds, so could I use it to snap a man's neck?"
DM: "No, mage hand explicitly can't be used to attack. Wait did you say ten pounds? Oh god. No. No."

DM: "Am I correct in assuming you are the last son of the noble House Butt?"

DM: "Here I am trying to be serious, and you named your character D*ck Butt."

Dereck Dadd (Rogue): "My criminal contact is called Convenient Plot Development."
DM: "That's canon now, just so you know."

Glow of the Mountain (Cleric): "I attack him."
Glow: *rolls cocked twice, then rolls a natural twenty*
DM: "So you hold your warhammer like a golf club, take two practice swings, and them smack him in the nuts."

DM: "Y'know, that boss fight would have been much harder had I rolled above a ten at any point."

DM: "Do you see this? This is a plot hook. Its my job to dangle it in front of you. Despite what the internet will tell you, it is not your job to then ignore it at all costs."

My own Earth Pony character isn't really sure what Earth Pony magic is (other than really subtle). :smallredface: If we go by OOC game abilities as magical abilities, then Earth Pony 'magic' is getting more Perks per level and being able to build complex equipment related to our talents from junk without needing any kind of repair skill.

Quotes from our final game of Double Cross, plus one I missed from last session. Annoyingly, I think there are others I missed. I wish I'd written them down now. These are all from memory.


Edward: This is the second time you've been naked this campaign.
Josephine: Actually it's the third.
Edward: Already?

Dante: DEATH RAAAAAAY!

Josephine: I'm going to punch it!
GM: Fine, you fight the bear with your bare hands!

John: (no less than 3 times during the session) I'll stab it in the face!

GM: You cut their heads off, Indiana Jones style.

Edward: This place is built like a Bond villain lair, which means it's going to explode at the end of the session.

GM: No! There are no invisible people!

GM: For the second time this campaign, you are now disguised as a school girl.

Scamp: He's performing a deadly strip tease!

GM: As the grenade goes off, an absurd set of circumstances cause a shard from a nearby mirror to fly out and hit you in the face for 10 unblockable damage.
Edward: That seems fair.

Dante: Can we just skip to the part where we kill you, please?

As in, putting the moves on another mare? Mirror would probably be heart broken, pissed, and (should any of Mirror's relatives show up) be uncaring to stop them from breaking Doc's face.



Annoyingly, I think there are others I missed. I wish I'd written them down now. These are all from memory.

I've made it a point to always write down the good quotes back when I had a local group. I learned a good shorthand method of note taking too so I could keep up. Even then, there were times the jokes just kept on coming and something got lost in transcription.


GM: For the second time this campaign, you are now disguised as a school girl.

I'm curious why that is becoming a thing. :smalltongue:

Moon: “On the off chance there was something weird going on, Moonshadow takes a look at the Pinkie poster through her monocle.”
Doc: *Poses with the poster*
GM: “The poster Doc was holding was fine. Penny stood behind Doc. Her coat was bleached a pale shade of grey and a set of ram horns erupted from the sides of her head.”
Moon: “Hey Doc. Don't move.” (*Opens fire at the creature only she can see standing behind Doc*)

Viridia: “Hey guys, what's going on in this room?”
Choro: “Not much. Ms. Moonsahdow just shot the wall, the fridge is highly dangerous, and Doctor Wagon wants to bake a cake.”
[Beat]
Choro: “Do you want to go check on the next room? I think it might be safer than this one.”

Moon: “Sorry about that, I thought I saw something hovering around Doc.”
Doc: “Don't worry, it's all good. Any invisible somethings hovering around me are probably trouble.”

Viridia: “I know a sex dungeon when I see one.”
GM: “Nah, there's not enough mirrors.”

My theory is that Moonshadow did see the goat demon that has been following Doc around. Why that demon follows Doc, I don't know. It has been mostly harmless up to this point, so Doc has been jokingly referring to it as his "Roadie".

As for the second statement-- Touche'. XD

Doc: “I walk over to the desks, hoping those were relatively safe and filled with notes on what the old world did behind the glass.”
Perception: *crit fail*
GM: “As Doc pressed his face into a fascinating terminal screen on a nearby desk, he would eventually realize that the power would have needed to be on in order to read it.”
Doc: “Oh, right... might need that.” (*scribbles ‘Wash Me’ on the screen*)

Viridia: *trots a little closer to the corpse and tilts her head* “You okay, buddy?”
GM: “The corpse said nothing.”

GM: “Doc didn't have the assistance of magical unicorn lighting or night vision eyes, so he just saw that the door opened to a big open expanse of dark. Roll perception.”
Doc: *Crit succeeds, sees everything anyway*

Moon: “I wouldn't keep my generator, backup or otherwise, with potentially dangerous test subjects. So going by other prewar buildings, that's exactly where they kept them.”

Doc: “I found a party! It's... pretty laid back. Fifteen dead bodies, a couple bottles of wine, and a cake that's doing an interesting impression of Brie.”
Choro: “Ah. Dead ponies. The scavenger's guiding star. Wait... what killed them? We're underground. They wouldn't have been hit directly by Balefire.”
Moon: “My guess? Poison. They killed themselves rather than face the end. Or maybe one pony poisoned them all to spare the rest.”
Doc: “Hmm, perhaps a doctor could perform a high-level autopsy to determine the cause of death.”
Doc: (*Thinking to himself*) “Wait for it…”

When Doc first got it?
I thought the -1 Luck was at Stitchheart's genetic experiment lab (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?441544-Fallout-Equestria-Grits-And-Ghouls&p=20027751&viewfull=1#post20027751), the one with all the spliced chimera-like critters (though proud that I later nailed that penalized luck roll).

I theorize the goat demon wants Doc to feel insignificant so that he changes his mind and signs the blood pact for power. Probably because Doc might be one of the first to refuse the offer back at the hidden shrine. I just don't remember the demon doing anything tangible to Doc or his stats before the lab. It just... appeared once in a very rare while and stood there. Staring.

Well, the first time was because she had nothing else to wear at the time (Her clothes had been damage after she shielded Scamp from an explosion).

The second time we knocked out the villain's niece because she'd gone mad with power (long story) and someone had the bright idea for Josephine to take her clothes and pretend she'd captured us. This was the same girl who'd been described as Hermione earlier. Speaking of which...

No, it was a pretty logical choice to me.

"Hey, you know what, we gave Wizards access to the best spells in the game and the broadest spell selection mechanic there is. On top of that, they've got schools that grant some awesome class features! And metamagic!"

Superhero campaign Issue #2: So much fire...

at beginning of session
Olive (AKA Spook): Look Black Mirror, I have pretty much zero combat powers. My specialty is mostly information gathering and... paperwork. I can't do anything in a fight.

at end of session
Olive: (In helicopter, directing squad of EICH troopers, shooting at a mecha with an anti-material rifle) I should never not be doing this!

DM: Yeah, the Iron Kurtain worked alongside the Red Scare in the 70's and 80's.
Black Mirror: Iron Kurtain is an awesome supervillian name.
Spook: He was pretty good, but he eventually fell.

Olive: Wait, you're a professional goon?
Casey Brown: Oh yeah, I'm the gooniest goon around. I've gooned for the best! Deathjester, Triple-Threat, The Devil in Prada. Man, those costumes were amazing...

DM: The police chief is sitting at his desk-
Red Menace: (OOC) I like to imagine he's being played by Samuel Jackson.
DM: What?
Red Menace: What's his name?
DM: Chief Edward Willis.
Red Menace: Perfect.

Olive: Guys, little heads up, there's a dinosaur in there with you.

Red Menace: So we're all in agreement: The fire-breathing cyborg dinosaur is voiced by Christopher Walken.

Warhead (cyber-dino): (in a terrible Christopher Walken impression) You gnats... aren't worth my time! (breathes fire)
DM proceeds to roll multiple critical successes (system uses exploding dice), winds up dealing double the normal maximum damage
Black Mirror:... Good thing I'm fireproof!
Red Menace: No one else is!!
DM: Actually, Warhead is too.

DM: Your only lead is a reclusive hacker called Pr0xi3
Red Menace: Does he look like a young Jeff Goldblume?
