    DM: All right, so, you guys made your investigators yet?
    Players: Yeah.
    DM: Okay, what are they? Dan, you go first.
    Dan: I made a slightly wacky, bookish professor who studies ghosts and such, bit on the verbose side. Lots of investigative skills and crafting skills, not much in combat.
    DM: Okay, you next, Harold.
    Harold: Uhh. . . I kinda made the same type of character as Dan. . .
    DM: Oh, umm. . . Well, this can still work out. What about you, Bill?
    Bill: Also a professor, but not much of one. More concerned with making money than teaching. Huge womanizer, bit of a dick.
    DM: Uh huh. I guess you’ll have no problems roleplaying that one. And you, Ernie?
    Ernie: I can’t play for the next session or two, but I made a more combat-focused dude. Big black guy, lots of strength, the works.
    DM: . . . I guess I can work with this. First two or thee sessions we’ll do will just be investigation, we can pick up the combat stuff later.
    Harold: Hey, you never really did explain what this campaign was about. Care to tell us?
    DM: Sure. Modified CoC setting, lots of paranormal stuff, especially ghosts. You won’t be able to fight these things with weapons, but, though your characters won’t immediatly know this, you can use electricity to harm them, and they can be trapped.

    Dan: Well, the proper equipment IS expensive. . .

    Harold: Are you kidding? You said that we couldn’t fight these things with conventional weapons!

    Dan: Nice! Wait, what about the girl and the dork?
    DM: They’re dead. Got turned into stone statues when Gozer disappeared, and they were dead and gone before that.
    Bill: What?!?! At least let me roll to see if I can crack open the statue and save her!
    DM: Fine. I stopped caring about the time Dan made the evil deity manifest as a giant marshmallow man.
    Ernie: A fucking SCARY marshmallow man, though. . .
    DM: Roll a d100.
    Bill: All right. . .
    *rolls 100*
    DM: Fuck. . . fine. She and the nerd guy are still alive. You get the girl, you save the day, and you actually have a higher SAN score than you started off with.
    Dan: This was great. Anyone up for another game?
    Bill: Sure.

    The final battle of 00's first, and we like to believe only, season. The former is when Lockon dies. The latter is when Setsuna fights the sparkly gold Alvatore, then gets robusted by TRANS-GRAHAM.

    Yes. Downhill and six feet under.

    They get a spare Lockon (His identical twin!), the dude with the split personality spends the entire season doing jack shit and fawning over...That chick with white hair, and the bland lead gets the sparkly, sparkly 00, which is basically an 'I win' button. The only good part is that the trap dresses up as the hottest girl ever.

    Also, Graham becomes a weeaboo. To punctuate the sheer stupidity of the series- There's a machine called the Gaga, which is basically a suicide bomb piloted by clone pilots, who live only to smash into their enemies. We have something called 'missiles' which do the same thing without such tragic loss of life.

    Also, Celestial Being worked hand-in-hand with the cult of scientology to prepare to fight aliens...WHO ACTUALLY TURN UP IN THE MOVIE, HOLY SHIT. Tragically, the red-hot China girl in that cheongsam cuts her hair, changes her clothes, and is ineffectual until she gets blowed up.

    Also, Saiji and his girlfriend join the main cast.

    GM: Okay, so this is a political campaign set in a nation recovering after having lost a war a few years ago. If you play your cards right, you might end up in positions of power.
    Nick: Nice. I'll play a veteran of the war, who once wanted to be a painter. I've been jailed for terrorist acts and treason, have rather firm principles, and maxed out CHA.
    GM: Good, I can work with that.
    Bob: I'm an organizer of the militia of a growing party. I'm also gay. Haven't thought of much else.
    GM: Homosexuality is frowned upon in this setting though.
    Bob: Eh, I'll make it out OK.
    Tom: I have a truckload of ranks in Pilot for some reason. Seemed like a good idea. I'm some sort of nervous wreck hiding behind martial fame and fucking fabulous clothing. Seriously, I spent five points on my clothing.
    GM: Okaaaaay... Last, Tim?
    Tim: I supply the INT Nick doesn't have, but I'm very loyal to him. Well-versed in literature and philosophy, bro, gets kind of complex since he's supporting a very anti-intellectual party.

    Sam: I sunk a fuckton of points into unarmed and improvised combat skills; didn't want to be too dependent on firearms.

    DM: Okay, but...let's get back to Dan. How are your kids clones if your character is of average intelligence and has almost no science skills?

    Dan: Oh, shit, really? My bad. Well, I could go back and change it, but...hey, my background includes my father also being a super scientist type, so maybe I inherited the stuff to make clones.

    He's referencing an animu called something along the lines of Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni, which I think means "When the Cicadias Cry", but don't quote me on that.

    Basically, small town antics about a small cast of school kids and the lead up to a town festival. Then one or more school kids go mad and bodies start piling up. They're all mentally unstable in one way or another, have dark secrets and emotional scars that mean pretty much any of them could be the killer.

    Then everything resets and starts again. Madness, shenanigans, death. Only one character is aware of the cycle and begins to try to break it. There are maybe a half dozen loops shown in the series before it breaks, but it's supposed to have happened thousands of times, all ending in doom and death.

    The spiritual sequel is even weirder. You basically have an Agatha Christie murder- EXCEPT SOMEONE BLAMES WITCHES. The male lead spends the whole series going 'NANANAIDON'TBELIEVEINMAGIC' while distinctively supernatural shit happens offscreen as a metaphor. A metaphor for MURDER.

    Also, the Stakes are totally hot, when they're not ceremonial daggers used to kill people in horrific ways.

    Ann: No shit. I'm also of royal blood, but dedicated to my studies and court life. I was mostly a showpiece for the family, but I fulfilled my role and got contacts in high places.

    GM: What pairs did you roll? Didn't know REIGN had that.

    Sam: We rolled quintuplets.

    GM: Damn. Greg?

    Greg: Life fucked me in the ass. I was a great general but with small royal favor. Then my family got killed, I got caught who knows where and I ended up fighting in the arena. I'm a beast at combat, though, so I WILL take vengeance

    GM: Fuck, that's high powered, can't have you owning shit left and right. At least you share a theme...

    Ann: So we reroll?

    GM: Too much work... Okay, you all come from a senate-backed empire, rife with politics. The Emperor has died on campaign, so you both can make bets to power. Greg, as the general in charge, you got shafted by your own men by high orders, you will have to appear later...

    DM: Okay, we're playing a modern-day campaign set in New York. Jamie, you're first. I see you have an ace reporter. Good social skills, athletic... are you sure you want to take Enemy (Police)?

    Jamie: Yeah, I've been doing pieces about corruption on the force. Also, I didn't take many combat skills so I hope the rest of you brought in some heavies.

    Kyle: Got you covered! I'm playing a vigilante. Here's my sheet...

    GM: Holy shit, where did you even find the stats for all these weapons?

    Kyle: They're just sports equipment. I had to custom-build a lot of them, but I started with a lead pipe as the base so they should all be balanced. Oh! I forgot to put down that I re-skinned my helmet as a hockey mask.

    GM: Kinda got anger issues too, huh? Alright, I can work with this. Dan, what have you got for me?

    Dan: I'm playing a ninja!

    Mike, Brad, and Scott: You can't be a ninja, I'm rolling a ninja! Uh oh...

    GM: You're ALL playing ninja? Dammit guys, this is a modern day campaign, how many ninjas are there going to be in modern-day New York?

    Dan: No, no, it's cool. We all took the same race for the kick-ass bonuses, so we could be brothers. We'll all use different weapons or something, it'll work out.

    GM: Race?

    Mike: Dude, shut the fuck up about that!

    GM: This isn't a Racial Holy War game, I'm not giving you strength bonuses for playing a black guy or whatever... wait, what kind of race is that? I've never heard of it.

    Scott: It's a, uh, homebrew race.

    Dave: I'm going to be a hopeless nerd. I've got next to no charisma, but I've got an awesome imagination, plus a decent amount of points in Skill (art: draw). I'm going for a sort of pessimistic vibe for him. Oh, do you mind if I have a familliar?

    DM: I suppose.

    Dave: Cool, I want a dog. A really cool dog.

    DM: Alright. Jim?

    Dave: Oooh! Me too! Let's do it together.

    Donny: Only the coolest character to grace this table. He's a badass, an outcast, and nobody likes him, but that suits him just fine. I'm talking leather jacket, I'm talking no respect for authority, I'm talking a couple lackies at my disposal. Plus, he's rich.

    DM: And his shortcomings include?

    Donny: He's got Midas' touch, only it's not gold he's getting handed, but shit. Everything turns to shit, and he has emotional problems.

    Greg: And max points from Dependent and Enemy.

    GM: You know what, whatever. Let's just keep going. Stan, I see you actually made a fairly normal fencing character. Thank god for small favors. How about you Fran?

    GM: I was kidding. Don't. Shaun, thank you for following direction. I don't see anything too weird about your character. I am confused by your ranks in longbow training though.
    Shaun: I plan on getting one later.

    Hank: Not quite. Check out my equipment section.

    I'd say that the Eiserne Jungfrau showing up proved to be the real turning point.

    Sure, the main character narrowed his argument to 'magic wasn't involved in these murders', but then Heaven's anti-witch Inquisition busted in and started investigating the facts. Dlanor is probably the most competent antagonist other than Bernkastel.

    Your average party would also be fucked in the same scenario. The fighter wouldn't have his magic weapons, so would be doing something like d10+strength and power attack and shit (which the half giant in this scenario would be just as good at) while the rogue would suck donkey dick because of no sneak attacks and the cleric and wizard wouldn't be able to do much either, naturally.

    Wait, Harry Potter?

    I might be wrong, but if I'm not...
    You're the shit for making it difficult to recognize.
    If it isn't Harry Potter...
    You still rule, because it is SERIOUSLY hard to recognize.

    Didn't catch this. Thirty Internets for being first.

    Also; Why doesn't spellcheck freak out over 'Internets'? As long as it's capitalized, it's all good. At the same time, spellcheck is not a word, although we use it as a single verb/noun all the time.

    It's not supposed to make ya feel clever. It's not supposed to be a guessing game. And it's really annoying when you get one and no one has any fucking idea what it is because of no pictures. Especially when it's something that sounds cool and you want to look it up BUT WAIT, you don't have a picture or title to go by.

    GM: So Greg is back in our gaming group, and we need to reintroduce him to the game. Unfortunately, he refuses to fucking roll a new character, so you guys have to go on a rescue mission to save him from a prison. The Americans are providing support but they're not happy about it.

    Bill: Alright, I'll bring Gary to this mission with a sniper rifle and a m4.

    Mary: You better not hog all the spotlight like you did during the last adventure with James.

    GM: Mary? What're you playing?

    Mary: Oh, I'm playing John again.

    GM: Fred?

    Fred: I'm Simon, I figure we might need a smart tech/hacker type of guy for this one.


    GM: FUCKING BULLSHIT, you metagaming faggots, there is no way you would have known to breach that wall and there is NO WAY you should have been able to kill all those guys. I don't care how good your rolls were, you were supposed to sneak by them!

    Bill: Told you we'd get you, Greg. Can we finish now, I'm hungry.

    GM: You know what? Fuck you guys, rocks fall. Everyone dies.




    GM: So, Bill, though yours and Fred's characters died and Mary quit, you successfully manage to kill the BBEG before he finishes off Greg.

    Bill: Wow, and I thought she was stupid for putting points in Throw.

    GM: Good game, guys.

    Greg: Alright, Ivan can you take me and Bill home now?

    People, just post ones if you think you can. Even if it's not amazing, it keeps the thread going, and SOMEONE's gonna like it.
    And yes, the last one was Harry Potter.

    GM: Hey there Al, Dick, Wade. Where's Barb?

    Dick: Not coming at first, but she gave me her character sheet.

    GM: Lemme' see here. Female character, as always. Kind of young for a detective.

    Wade: Naw, it works. I'm sort of like their mentor.

    DM: This isn't going to turn into a game of FATAL, is it?


    Dick: Naw, but we got enough young characters for it to get wierd. Mine's a teenager, too. I specialized in acrobatics and jump to make up for my small size.

    GM: I can see this working. A bunch of young up-and-co... Al? Why's your character 70?

    Al: Oh, that. See, I wanted to roleplay an older gentleman, so I figured being a butler would be cake. Besides, someone needs to keep the maynor looking nice.

    GM: Wat

    Wade: I sort of got voted to be the main character, so I decided to be rich. Parents died young and left me with a fortune.

    GM: Fine, fine. I can't see any of you doing well in this though. The criminals of this game are gonna be real freakshows: Jesters, mutilated crazies, masterminds... The works.

    GM: Ok, we're going to do a sequel to that sci fi campaign we did a while ago.

    Amy: The one where most of our characters died when the space nazis brought in giant robots?

    GM: Look, guys, I told you, I never expected them to have such a huge bonus against your capital ships, they were meant to be just a joke...

    Kevin: Well, I came prepared this time.

    GM: Ok... so you're going for a giant robot pilot... despite the fact that the earth guys don't have any giant robots...

    Amy, Harry and Joe: Uhhh....

    GM: Oh god, don't tell me you guys did too... Ok, ok, I can work with this.... let's say you guys got the prototypes of the robots the Earth decided to make after getting crushed last time. Let me see your sheets.

    GM: Ok... so both Kevin and Harry are going for long ranged weaponry, and Amy's going for a melee build... and what's this?

    Amy: I found this melee psionic build, I figured it'd be fun.

    GM: ... Fine, fine, ok, psychics. In space. Whatever. ...Joe, why does your character have such a huge drive skill but is so bad at both range and melee?

    Joe: I figured me and Harry could have a two seater robot, me driving, him firing.

    GM: But robots run off the piloting skill.... oh fine, I'll just say it's a half tank half robot...

    Bill: I just went for another capital ship captain.

    GM: ... Why does he have such a high strength, if he's a Captain? And isn't he a bit young?

    Bill: *shrugs*

    GM: Ok, and Sally?

    Sally: I'm gonna be an exiled princess!

    Also, as of Peace Walker:

    - Superiors were tricked by false intel, so they sent her to kill von Neumann in 1943. Found out she was pregnant, broke her cover for a second as a result, then got grazed by a bullet across her head while dodging a gut shot. Fell into a coma for 3 months, ended up regretting not carrying out the mission because she felt that von Neumann surviving led to the Cold War.

    - Got irradiated and became infertile in 1951.

    - 1960: Joined the Mercury Project. The Boss becomes the first person to ever go to space. Seeing the Earth from space led to the beginning of her dream, which was to unite the world as one. Unfortunately, the re-entry capsule crashes when she returns in 1961, severely injuring/burning her and sending her into a six-month coma. During her time in space, she was exposed to more radiation. In addition to that, the crash led the government to cover up the whole experiment. Her time in space becomes an unknown chapter of her life.

    - 1962: After her recovery, she is forced to assassinate the Sorrow, with her child's life used as leverage against her. Obviously, she succeeds in killing her husband.

    Two notes.

    1) The US government was pissed at her for crashing the capsule (which was their fault because they added a window to the thing), so they forced her to kill her husband.

    2) 2 years after she kills her husband, MGS 3 begins.

    Oh, right.

    It was revealed in Peace Walker that the Boss decided to put her gun down and started singing after the Mercury Project, hoping in vain that peace would eventually come. Her hope was shattered when she was forced back into service by the US government.

    When Big Boss hears that, he actually said that Boss betrayed him and everything she did as a soldier by choosing to lower her gun and dying only for her country.

    Bill: I have all my tools and anotehr sterile bubble. Why the fuck not, my medical skill and endurance are already pretty fucking high. What do I have too lose?

    Not at that point - the spare had been taken out and replaced with a bomb. He was staying awake during the surgery to have the bomb taken out, while holding a small child hostage. Said child was actually the villain from the past. The idea being that if anything went wrong, PARADOX MOTHERFUCKER

    See, the sequence of events:

    1.) He was captured, and a bomb was put where his second heart should be.
    2.) His captor ordered him to go back in time and kill Hitler.
    3.) Stopped by time police.
    4.) Came back- And took his captor's kid self with him, used the kid as hostage for open-heart surgery while awake.
    5.) Kicked his captor's head off. (His captor thought, amusingly, that he was about to rape him. The Midnighter's response was: "You sick fuck.")

    There's closed-chest heart surgery that requires the patient to be awake, too, and they only use local anaesthetic for the groinal incisions. They do usually give you a drug to make you doze off and forget whatever happens in surgery, but some people are immune to the drug.

    There's a (remarkably unfunny) comedian named Matthew Davis who went through this, and because of his long-term alcohol abuse (so he says), the drug just made him feel slightly tipsy.

Sorry Victor but you have to redo this, he is way over the assigned points value.

    Except Vimes doesn't hate non humans or humans. In fact, it's the opposite: he's totally un-prejudicial, which comes across as odd when in the setting you've got Dwarves hating Trolls and vice-versa, and some humans hating others... He doesn't HATE dragons, for the love of god his wife owns a homeless dragon shelter. The only Hatred: [thing] that fits is the Nobility one. And he's not a berserker either. Vimes almost never looses his cool, and I know, I know, The Beast, but he's got total mastery over himself and never lets it loose of its chain. Not to mention, while he is an excellent street fighter, he couldn't take on an army and win.

    Jay: Nope! My character is completely human, and my arch is actually a rogue member of an entire race of psionic talking gorillas. Oh did I mention they developed much better technology than normal humans?

    GM: *Sigh* Fine. I did ask you to go all out. However I didn't expect most of my players to be aliens or have alien technology. Your main villains are: Ares the God of War, A bald dude with an ego complex, A yellow magic ring user, Circus Freaks and a psychopathic clown, and a talking gorilla. Too bad like most villains they're unorganized, and have paper thin plots that involve "taking over the world" or "robbing a bank".

    Vivio must have an even worse case, then.
