    Back when the gamesworkshops shitty old forums were open, and I used to frequent them, there was a similiar tale about improbably gun drone fuckery in melee combat.

    Gun drone vs Avatar.
    Gun drone won.
    This was in the 3rd/4th era, so the avatar would have gone first.
    Rolled 1's on ALL its attacks.
    Then the gun drone would have had to roll straight 6's on hitting and wounding.
    And then the avatar biffed its 5+ save.

    The worst part was?
    The poster didn't say whether the drone took it down from full, or just scored the last wound.

    I've seen a player critically fail, not his dice, not his character, the player. Our characters were learning interrogation techniques, he's up to do his roll, mind you it's perfectly clear that we are the interrogators, he says "Who are you and what do you want with me?"

    We have never forgotten it and we don't intend on letting him forget it either.

    My friend is a Jedi infiltrating a Sith base. He fails a stealth check and is spotted by a janitor. The janitor asks him who he is and why he's there.

    So the group is doing a bit of talking with the other auction patrons in Dark Heresy, specifically the House of Dust and Ash mission, i had filled out the cast and added a few characters to the patrons of the auction. well one of the guardsmen is talking with a particularly nasty villain who is a hard core cultist. The Cultist starts talking to a Merc-Guardsmen Known as Wrench who is a member of the party. after 10 mins of solid talking rp the Cultist is looking for a way to mulch the competition and asks about the Merc's work. he says and i quote "I've worked for a few Inquisitors as well as commanders. and seen my fair share of duty." i fell over with shock, hoping he would take it back. nope, he kept it up. saying that his inquisitor let him go. the team grilled him for it both in and out of character. they concluded that an execution on the spot of his character would be suspicious.

    Fully tooled up melee-monster high elf lord on elven steed, vs Ariel (mage character, worthless in melee). IIRC the lord got four attacks per round, hitting on 3+ (or possibly 2+), wounding on 4+, and any wound caused would have been instakill. The horse got one attack, hitting on 5+ and wounding on 5+. Ariel had 3 wounds.

    After three rounds of cc, the lord had managed to do jack shit, and the horse had killed the bitch.

    It was one combat round! One round!

    We just all exploded into fail immediately.

    It was actually fairly awesome after that, and we sucked much less on the whole.

    Unplanned Monk rush combined with similtanious DERP just made me laugh.

    It took us like ten minutes to recover because in the middle of the shocked silence the DM just did this horribly racism Asian voice and yelled "Why you do dis? Now deer noodles everywhere èrbī bī! At least kick own ass out of door!"

    My Dark Eldar have had their share of fail moments.
    My archon was given a shadowfield which grants a 2+ invul until it fails it once then its broken. Now my archon is getting the shit pounded out of him. This was an apoc match and i dont remember a lot of it but i remember the shit that was hitting him. Rockets, lascannons, heavy bolters, auto-cannons, fire prism blasts and god knows what else were coming his way. Every single one saved. Then after chewing out a squad of terminators in the previous turn he decides along with 3 of the remaining incubi to charge a dire avenger squad. I needed anything but a 1 to be in charge range. and 1 derp. So they are out of range. The dire avenger exarch looks at my archon and declares bulletstorm or w/e the ability is called. Major fail on his rolls. One hit on each dude. I need to make one 2++ and three 3+ rolls. All fail. the incubi are slaughtered the shadowfield is broken and the archon proceeds to evaporate.

    Oh God, that would be so frustrating.

    That stuff happened to me last game with Celestine and my Canoness riding together. Tanking for a while and then derp rolls. Last game, I went up against a unit of 12 death cult assassins with Celestine and the Canoness. Thanks to both of them having a 2++ I managed to save every attack. I killed 4 back, and then they broke and I overran. I consolidate. His turn comes and I tank meltas, lascannons, multi-lasers and more stuff. A melta gets through that I put on the canoness and she dies. Then 3 laspistol wounds on Celestine. 3 1's. 6 out of 5 faith points lost, no more from matyrdom.

    15 year old male Half Orc Ninja named Raifuukyaku Nobushin.
    Either "Lightningstep The Shadowless" or "Thunderfoot The Unsubtle"

    So far it's been Thunderfoot;

    He's fallen into a fountain while trying to listen in on a conversation and masking his attempt at eavesdropping by playing jacks (critfail listen, fail reflex).
    Fall off of a building while observing a scout recruit townsfolk to repel a Kobold raid (critfail balance).
    And fall face first into some horse dung while sparring with that same scout (rolled a one on his first attack).
    He did, however, manage to K.O. more Kobolds than anyone else in the party thanks to passing a lot of grapple checks to pick up a Kobold and throw it at another Kobold... While shouting at them because frontline work is a very poor application of his training (but a very good application of a Half Orc with 18 STR).

    He's making a name for himself, it's just not the name he wants...

    I've had my share of 40K great blunders and successes.
    Among my top 2 are:
    Eldar vs my Black Templar- kill the Eldar to the man, only a 2 wound Wraithlord remains, and I have over 750 points remaining on the board.
    5 missiles, 14 plasma shots, I forget how many heavy bolter shots and a couple lascannons later, the Wraithlord walks through the remainder of my entire army, every shot that would have denied it it's save failed to wound.
    The game ends in a tie.
    My best success, however, was my OLD chaos army against OLD Grey Knights. Specifically, his Grand Master vs my Great Unclean One.
    I charge. His grand Master hits 3 times, wounds twice, and I fail my save.
    Grand Master rolls an 11 failing his test to instant kill me.
    In my turn I pass my test, dispite the Grey Knight Modifer for Gift of Chaos, roll a 5 over the Grand Master's toughness, and he fails both his 5+ Psychic ward save, and his 4+ invunerable save and is reduced to a chaos spawn.
    Grand Master gets insta-killed against the Daemon in all rights he should have insta-killed.
    Suck it Ward.

    I just remembered another time the player critically failed, he was playing an electrokinetic (electricity controller, could throw lightning bolts and shit) he said "I want to see what it feels like to be hit with one of my lightning bolts." to make things better, he mimes it by sticking two fingers in his mouth. Damn near kills himself, would have if I hadn't been so generous at the time. Not a day later in-game (about an hour of taunting out of game) the other player (the GM from the military game) does fundamentally the same fucking thing: He asks to create a light construct as it's in his power set, I say: fine. Then he asks to make it explode, so I say make a roll, he succeeds. I tell him to make another roll, he blows it. I respond "Okay, you made the light construct, and you made it explode. Unfortunately, you didn't think to get away from it, or behind cover, and you blow yourself up." I roll damage "You aren't dead, but you are dazed, that hurt. You guys really are the Wonder Twins."

    Mind you Wonder Twins, is just our nickname for them.

    In the category of players critically failing, I had a party hijack a carriage in order to sneak into a diplomat's manor. One put on the driver's suit, and the rest got inside. When they got to the gates, a guard asked for their pass. Instead of reaching into his coat pocket and producing it, the driver panicked, declaring, "I throw 'er in reverse!"

    Now, horses don't exactly get thrown into reverse, but he wheeled that thing around wildly, arrows were fired, a desperate chase ensued, parts of the town were burned to the ground, and there was much laughter (once everyone was safely on the lam).

    My group refers to it as the Wizard incident. The party was trying to gain access to a mage guild to see the head wizard. Being strangely non-chaotic and lawful for a change, the group goes up to the front desk and asks to see the wizard:

    >Receptionist denies us access
    >Bard: "I got this"
    >Bard: Rolls diplomacy. Rolls 1. DM describes it as the bard getting kind of tongue-tied and not sure exactly how to get to this guy.
    > Sorcerer: Alright, my turn.
    >Rolls 1.
    >Stumbles and mutters.

    We actually blitzkrieg'd the goblin stronghold with the now small army of hobos and peasants as soon as the first encounter was over as the goblins were weakened. Sure, a few homeless died here and there, but they stunk just as bad as the goblins they were fighting. So kinda, yeah.

    I had a real life critfail brushing my teeth a few years ago.
    I had just gotten out of the shower, dried off and started to brush my teeth. While doing this I start pulling on my boxers, critfail ensues.
    As I lifted my leg to pull on the boxers I basically kneed my elbow of the arm I was brushing with, jacking the toothbrush into the side of my mouth, gouging my mouth all to fuck, and spitting blood everywhere. Not a good start to the day.

    Oh, if you want a real-life critfail, I have one from when I was about 8. I failed a climb check.

    I was climbing up a rounded ladder, like the one in the left of the picture. I had climbed this ladder dozens of times, so I wasn't really paying attention to where I was stepping. As I was about to step onto the jungle gym, my foot went right through the space between the rung and the platform. Oh, how I had wished my fall had ended there.
    Instead of just falling through the bars into the sharp wood chips below, my head flew forward and my chin slammed into the last rung. The force caused the back of my head to ricochet into the rung I had been standing on. I them promptly fell face down into the sharp, pointy wood chips below.

    Needless to say, I was bawling like a baby for a few minutes.

    This happened yesterday. Not to me, but to one of my players. Basically, it's a modern wod hunter game. Guy is actually pretty good at stalking targets most of the time, but got completely dice-raped.

    Character is on stakeout duty at a suspected targets house. He's perched across the street on a rooftop with binoculars, spying on the targets home.

    After getting the information he needed, he leaves via his climbing rope. Even with lowered climbing difficulty for equipment, he botches his climb roll and falls thirty feet, taking bashing damage.

    Afterwards, he attempts to enter the target's home, lockpicking the side door. Botch again, breaking his pick and jamming the lock. He decides not to resort to leaving evidence of intrusion (breaking and entering) and waits for the target to leave.

    Later that same night, while following the target in his car driving around NYC, I have him make a few drive rolls to shadow him without being noticed. 1 Botch on the first roll, scraping up against some parked vehicles and alerting the target, who runs a red light at the intersection ahead to lose the character. Player says, "I give chase." Triple botch. T-bones the read end of a winnebego at the red light intersection and totals their truck. Target escapes.

    Plays CSM versus IG. Chaos lord charges the IG command squad. He's already lost one wound to shooting after his transport got blow up. He kills most of the squad, leaving the officer with a power fist and a standar bearer. Next turn he rolls1 on his daemon weapon, losing a wound. The standard bearer manages to score one wound and he fails his 2+ save. We ruled he was tabbed in the eye.

    Againt the same player, this time with Dark Eldar vs IG. Archon and 4 incubi charge 50 guardsmen and a comissar. Kill a load of them, but two incubi die to massed attacks. IG player rolls leadership, but since there's a comissar in the unit, it doesn't take negative modifiers from losing and has ld 10. He rolls 11. Comissar shoots and officer and rerolls. 11. Squad flees and gets run down by the archon. Next turn the remainign two incubi are killed by a squad of 5 veterans carrying meltaguns. Archon charges them and spends 3 turns rolling nothing but 1s and 2s, before finally managing to kill them on the last turn of the game.

    Holy shit, this thread's alive?



    Well, apparently the people want to hear of Boxcar Joe, the Magic Hobo.

    The Saga begins where most of my tales of 'what the fuck just happened' did, Dark Heresy.

    Back when I didn't know how the rules worked (actually, I still don't. On purpose. Back then I cared.) I was shown a Random Character Generator for the system.

    What I ended up with was a guy who had only two real talents: Playing his Bass Guitar, and Running.

    He was mostly broke, only owning the cloths on his back, his Bass Guitar, and a Couch that was 'In remarkably good shape'.

    He was a psyker, one of the really weak ones (so weak it was actually impossible to tell IC if he was).

    He had a look that could only be described as 'Business casual, if it was slept in. For about a week.'

    When he was described to the group, one of my friends remarked 'So you're playing some sort of Magical Hobo?'

    That's where his name came from. The original name, that was rolled for, was immediately discarded for the moniker of 'Boxcar Joe, the Magic Hobo'.

    If you give me a minute, I'll start typing up the shit that happened.

    First mission for the Inquisitor, I wasn't in the group yet.

    They landed in the hive where I was living to investigate some sort of disappearance of an associate.

    Boxcar Joe was trying to remember where he put has bottle of Sacra.

    They met up with some local arbitrators, got some leads, and went hunting.

    Boxcar Joe played his Bass with a rhythm so perfect it created an impromptu dance party in the lower hive.

    The acolytes got into a heated firefight just outside the pub where Boxcar Joe was trying to drink his lunch in peace.

    He stepped out, and this is where I became aware of my surroundings.

    On my left, A tech-priest, some sort of imperial assassin, two guardsman, and someone who looks like they just stepped out of a pulp PI novel from the 50's. Trench coat, fedora, whole shebang.

    On my right, 50 genestealers. Give Or Take.

    I grabbed my bottle, and chucked it at the xenos.

    I won't lie and pretend I remember all of the numbers, but:

    >The bottle hit a Hive Tyrant that was invisable for some reason.
    >Said hive tyrant had its eyes burned by the pure alcohol
    >Hive tyrant thrashed into bridge.
    >30+tonnes of Concrete and other building materials fall, killing all but two genestealers. One is shot by the detective, the other Joe kicks in the face so hard it gets decapitated.

    I then looked over at the stunned group.

    "Off-worlders, yeah? You have to watch the local cockroach population. bastards get real uppity every couple of years."

    I was then shanghaied into the group.

    I'm not going to tell all the DH related tales, but he lasted pretty much the entire campaign. Whenever he was directly involved in a confrontation, all rolls would go right to either end of the spectrum. Every other roll was a Crit or a Crit-Fail.

    In the end, he got sucked into the warp surfing his couch.

    That isn't the end of his story.
    >> Waffle House Millionaire 04/22/11(Fri)01:45 No.14676140

    About a month later, I was running a Shadowrun game (4th if it matters).

    They were all rolling up characters, and there was one new guy who wasn't there for the DH game.

    He opted for a random creation thing.

    Ended up with a technical pacifist Hobo street shaman who lived on a couch in a downtown alleyway.

    He owned a Bass Guitar, Aviator shades that looked slightly too big for him, and his couch was even described as 'in remarkibly good shape'.

    We all joked that two different computers with two different random generators had created Boxcar Joe.

    After explaining why it was so fucked up to the new guy, he laughed and named his character Boxcar Joe, the Magic Hobo.

    The game went along normally for a while, and then the first combat happened.

    Boxcar Joe grabbed a can of tomato soup, spent a point of edge, grabbed six dice, and let fly at one of the guys trying to mug him.

    We have a rule when it comes to exploding dice: every other time a die 'explodes' the intended effect gets bigger.

    27 hits later, all seven thugs (one of whom was hiding around the corner) were dead from the side effects of that thrown can. One gun also discharged into a passing truck, instantly killing the driver with a head-shot and bringing the delivery van to a crashing halt into the entrance of the alley.

    Boxcar Joe starts freaking out, because stopping the thugs cost him his dinner.

    Before anyone in the group could console him, the back door of the delivery van popped open revealing the randomly rolled for cargo: Assorted food-stuffs.

    The game lasted about six months, and in the second to the last session Boxcar Joe lost control of a spell and got thrown into a magic portal out of reality.

    After that game, a couple of our players went their separate ways. We played some games with some new guys, and then I ran into one of the dudes who left.

    He had a story to tell about Boxcar Joe.
    >> Waffle House Millionaire 04/22/11(Fri)01:59 No.14676251

    Turns out that she played in a Delta Green game, and one of the guys in the group, using some form of random generator, ended up creating Boxcar Joe.

    When she met him for the first time in the game, she started laughing about the character, saying he sounded like someone from an earlier game: Boxcar Joe the Magic Hobo.

    At this point, according to her telling, the group fell silent. They showed her the sheet.

    Name: Boxcar Joe, the Magic Hobo.

    They then informed her that it was a running joke for a couple of local groups, where a musically inclined 'Magic Hobo' with a couch 'in surprisingly good shape' had turned up in more than a few random character generators.

    Part of the running joke was that Boxcar Joe played merry-hell with the dice-gods and the laws of probability.

    So then I asked her to find out when these games happened in relation to ours.

    After doing some math (and a little bit of guesswork) I made an interesting discovery: Firstly, due to a combination of game schedules and campaign lengths, it seems as though Boxcar Joe was not in any two games at once. In parallel running games yes, but if one game was on a Tuesday and so was another, something would happen that would amount to Boxcar Joe going away for that one session (like the guy being sick).

    Secondly: Every time Boxcar Joe has left a game, he hasn't died. At least not in a way that the body was ever found.

    Sucked into a portal, thrown off a cliff, Gellar Field failure, etc. Almost certain deaths in every-case, but no body ever found.

    Sometimes the game ends and Boxcar Joe just hitches a ride out of town or something, never to be seen again.

    As a result, I have a sneaking suspicion that every appearance of the character 'Boxcar Joe' is in fact the same person.

    As far as my personal theory goes I have two pieces of evidence in my favor: Every instance of his apperance that I can find involved both a random character generator, and the laws of probability going right out the window.

    The implications of this same person appearing in (no particular order) Dark Heresy, Rogue Trader, Shadowrun, Exalted, Old AND New Worlds of Darkness, Deadlands, Call of Cthulhu, Delta Green, DRYH, Star Wars, MAID, six different GURPS games, D&D (Faerun, Ebberon, Dark Sun, Spell Jammer, and at least two homebrew settings), Fantasy Craft, Spy Craft, and about six different homebrew games?

    Fucked if I know.

    Not sure I want to.

    A friend of mine once pointed out that if we swapped the couch out for a phone-booth, he would bare an uncanny resemblance to The Doctor.

    I'd rather not think on that possibility too hard.

    During a Pathfinder game, one fellow was a guard for a small town. Happening upon a bar argument he said "Who are you?!"
    They reply with their respective names.
    "I don't care?!" and he then (not put them in time-out) but 'separated them into corners so they stop fighting'

    Most likely Paranioa. They have nuclear hand grenades.

    The minimum blast radius is greater than the maximum thrown range. And the PCs don't know this.
