Right now, he's a psychic abomination that lives in your brother.

Anyone who has a brother realizes that this is a very basic tautology. As a brother with brothers, I do not exempt myself from this classification.

Druid: *looks* No I spell Eric with a C

Why is it always the fucking druids? God damn, I used to hate guys who played druids.

disclaimer: my very first character was a Druid. With a light saber. But I learned better!

I just got to this too and if anyone is on a conference call where someone just started to do this kind of muffled snorting thing, hi!

Unfortunately, Elixirs of Love do not work on dire bears.

I can't be the only one who read that in Morbo's voice.

Fighter: I think there’s one of them snake people in there.

Wizard: You mean a naga?

Fighter: … Dude, I don’t think it’s okay for you to use that word.

"When all else fails, throw the Gnome."

In my game, it was the Kender, and it certainly wasn't the last thing my players tried.

"I’m going to build a backup multiverse, in case the others end up destroying this one."

I didn't even need to check to know this was from Amber Diceless.

One of my gamer friends regularly reblogs those, particularly ones that could have come from the Amber PBEM my husband and I run.

Unfortunately not overheard by me, a favorite is one my friend heard. He was browsing in a game store where some RPG was happening, and overheard this:

"My ninja shoots him in the head 37 times."

It's glorious.

My favourite AD&D quote from my playing days was from a much younger kid who joined in on just one of games because his mom needed emergency baby-sitting:

"What's your move?"

"I remain calm"

It became my life philosophy even though the context of a tied up dwarf being lowered head first through a trapdoor into a hallway full of orcs has never actually happened to me.

My favorite from an old Shadowrun session I was involved in:

PC1- "There might be surveillance. We should probably disguise our identities. I put on my baklava."

PC2- "Good idea. I put on mine as well."

PC1- "Wait, I meant balaclava, not baklava."

GM- "To be fair, having sticky Greek pastry smeared all over your face would be a pretty decent disguise."

In high school my friends' black metal band was briefly named Baklava until one of them showed up to practice, found out about the new name and let them know what that word meant.

One of my favorites from years and years of gaming.

I was running Call of Cthulhu with the Scooby Gang as PCs, including a talking Scooby. The big bad monster had been flushed out and was attacking. Fred and Daphne were already dead. Scooby had been badly injured and Shaggy and Velma were facing a knife wielding monstrosity standing over their faithful friend. A good buddy of mine was playing Velma.

Velma: "Run, Shaggy!"

Shaggy: "But, but Scooby..."

Velma: "WE CAN ALWAYS GET ANOTHER DOG!"

My friend once played a Malkavian who had maxed-out auspex and paid for it by taking the flaw: blind and the derangement: unaware she is blind.

The DM had a hell of a time with that one.

These are really, no-shit, hilarious.

Actually, the dirty secret of every Cthulhu game ever is that they invariably start out Blair Witch Project and end up Bad Boys II with tommy guns.

Barbarian: I’m just saying, if the game was more like the old dos games back in the day, we’d move a lot faster.

GM: Alright, we can do that. Roll a d20.

Barbarian: *rolls* 13.

Gm: Congrats! you have died of dysentery.


I think I just hurt myself laughing...

One of the favorites from my group.

GM: ...guys, why do we have jobs when Ghostride is apparently a genius drug dealer?
posted by Ghostride The Whip at 8:36 PM on September 9, 2014


Some favorites from my games:

"Doesn't that require a human sacrifice?"
"Well, yeah."
"... Wouldn't that make a bad first impression?"

"Well, would you at least be willing to let *something* impregnate you?"

"Um, we kind of set the Second Coming in motion."
"Why is that a bad thing?"
"Have you ever read Revelation?"

"Due to a poor translation, you are known as the one who got eaten by a jelly donut."

"So... you step over innumerable unique archaeological finds in order to get to the BIG SHINY THING?"

"These ... things ... they're still alive after being buried under the antarctic ice for thousands of years? Do you know what this MEANS?"
"Yes! It means we're getting TENURE!"

"You're on fire."
"Do I notice?"
"Yes, in your calm appraisal of the room, you notice you are on fire."

While we're sharing:

Doris: I think we've picked up a tail.
Don: What? We shouldn't be mutating! The radiation on this world is -
Doris: I meant that someone is following us!

Sidrophael: I don't have a human name in this host.
Don's player: My deer name is "(bleating noises)"

Sidrophael (in deer form): Do you *sense* me?
Doris: Are you hitting on me?


... I miss tabletop sometimes.
