    As a small backstory, the party was working for a governor of a colonial territory of a large empire. They had just killed the leaders of the locals who were trying to fight against them. When they returned to the governor, a giant angel, and by angel I mean he was 8 feet tall with shining armor and a greatsword the size of a person. This angel bursts in, runs the governor through, then bursts back out.

    Later they pinpoint this angel to its lair. A cave complex with tons of small crystal bugs running about it and Grimock patrols (The party didnt know the angel was under Mind Control, but thats why it was working with evil creatures)

    They camp out outside the cave complex.
    >Day begins to break, when out of the cave you see an angel emerge, its eight feet tall, its arms are more muscled than your entire body, it has a sword the size of an orc(Yes it keeps getting bigger) It goes to rear its wings to lift off
    >Rogue character: "I jump down and scream "HEY, FAGGOT!"
    >The angel turns, throws its sword.
    >He dodges, and brags about how this should be easy
    >The angel charges and does an unarmed strike.
    >The angel's punch sends him across the clearing, we all visualize Hercules getting his ass kicked by the river centaur.

    Alright, the set up: The players were pretty far apart, and one of them (a shapeshifter) was flying back to them in crow form. He was pretty far out, and was looking for a place to sleep for the night, so he could continue the next day.

    Three (count 'em) nat 1's later, he finds statistically the worst place ever to sleep. He is clubbed over the head in bird form while he sleeps by a local cult (which the party is hunting), and taken back to their camp for food tied upside-down by his feet for transport, presumed dead.

    The party is heading for the camp anyway, and while there the shapeshifter feigns death. He sees the cultists preparing human sacrifices with silvered knives to open up some kind of hell-portal. He counts about sixty of their number, and notes they're all armed.

    Anyway, party busts in, he shapeshifts out of his bonds, and they reunite. He decides it's time for some vengeance, and charges the cultists, still sixty strong, as he shifts into his war form.

    His war form, incidentally, was a werewolf.

    The cultists see the lycanthrope charging them, look at each other, shrug, and all pull their silvered weapons.

    About thirty stabs later, he was dead as a doornail, and genuinely astonished that happened.

    The water is xenos. Literally.

    I created some xenos with the Gm-screen supplement, and got this massive, amorpheus gestalt being. And, since the planet was basically a grimdark water-hiveworld, i thought that it would be cool to make it look like clear water, and having the locals unwittingly use it as a water purifier.

    Now, this has nothing to do with why the people in the temple are "cleansing" people, but i cannot reveal it here due to players-on-/tg/ syndrome.

    Nah, I'm with the GM on this one. They were in a situation where instant death was the price for transgression. They immediately transgressed, and in a really inane way.

    If you're a narrative GM, if you want to get across to the players that they're in a place of extreme danger then the specific force of the weapons or supply of enemies is irrelevant - they will always have at least enough to kill you. That's the whole point of the scenario.

    While they were walking around, I tossed a d4 to see who would be influencing them.

    The Arbites and Scum, we fluffed to be 'old friends' from the same hive. He treated the scum like shit through the whole game, doing a great job being in character. The scum was just a bad player, constantly complaining about his abuse. So, the scum tries to help him as they're flying away, and he punches him to get him away. Khorne presence aside, it was very much how he would act.

    "My character is fed up with his shit and shoots him in the face."

    We're all: ...Wait, what?

    Then they all started spending fate points to pass checks, and burning them to survive death multiple times.

    The Inquisitor's remaining acolytes were the tech-priest, Pepto-Bismolis who was working in the belly of her ship for that mission, and the Cleric Elsa, who was scary as hell; She was a silent stoic chainsword wielding psychopath. If she started speaking, the party more or less pointed her in a direction, and fucking ran away. She would literally kill anything that so much as breathed a single word that didn't involve praising the Emperor.

    Well, like, on the one hand I can respect the idea that NPCs should play by the rules and they should roll for it just like any other combat instead of going "auto-dead".

    On the other hand, uh, it's a fucking AI and it has multiple turrets that are already aware of the party and have the very specific job of guarding that old guy. So that's like dealing with a gunman by going "I WALK STRAIGHT AT HIM EVEN THOUGH THERE'S 50 YARDS BETWEEN US".

    Molotov Wineskin. Players bribe some 1930's soviet-esque guards to take some of their supplies. Being soviets, all of the equipment was poorly taken care of. Awesome player makes some molotov cocktails, and improvises a bombe with some chemicals, puts it in a metal box, and fills the rest of the box with ammunition from around the area. Retarded player watches him do this, then goes over to the ammunition I had mentioned was sitting in a tin full of water from a leak in the roof. He proceeded to empty a wineskin on the ground, start pulling bullets apart and dump the powder into the wineskin. After doing this for a while, he closes it, and ties a rag around it, proudly proclaiming he had made a molotov wineskin. When the time came for him to deploy this device, he proceeded to light the rag, run up and place it in front of the people shooting at him. His girlfriend then asked him "Aren't you supposed to throw molotov cocktails?"

    "Oh, right!"

    He than ran back to the people who were shooting at him (who had sensibly retreated to a nearby building), grabbed his creation, and heaved with all his might.

    I just didn't have the heart to kill a retard.

    We were exploring a hole in the ground. The obsidiman (big stone guy) hoists the elf down, via rope. Then, when the elf said that he could see something down there, something carved into the side, the obsidiman player looks thoughtful for a second, and said:

    Ok, that one is not that hilarious, but nevertheless.

    D&D. Our group, being a part of the intelligence service of some kingdom, is tasked with going undercover to another country to contact some mighty mage. At the same time our kingdom prepares a war with that same neighbour kingdom we head to. Not far from the border, we see a newly built fort.

    We manage to flee the next day, only to be TPK'ed by a vampire with unadjusted level about double as high as we are. We were supposed to kill him shortly after he was turned (he made his will save to resist the alignment change), but everybody, especially the undead loving cleric, rolled miserably in our knowledge about the vampires and we just left him in manacles facing eastwards, hoping he would burn when the sun gets up.

    Personally I would still make the turret roll for it, but that's just my style. I don't give PCs mulligans and I don't give NPCs mulligans either. I've had epic final bosses taken down in a single turn from good/bad rolls, but I feel it makes the campaign much more memorable when the random hand of fate intervenes, rather than the cheeto encrusted hand of the ST.

    Dark Heresy, group is Tech Priest, Guardsman, and Psyker. After somewhat successfully assaulting the estate of a sorcerous noble, they are not fleeing from PDF kill teams. This is going badly because the kill teams have vehicles and the acolytes do not.

    Psyker stops and turns to try to use Fearful Aura to slow down the pursuers. He does pretty well at scaring them, but also rolls Perils of the Warp and gets Chronological Incontinence, making him blink out of reality for about a minute. When he reappears, he is arrested.

    The other two go to the local police station and ask about him, and all anyone can say is that he's been moved by the High Judge. Now, they've been near the Judge's courthouse, and it reeks of horrible-warpness.

    So, the Tech Priest and Guardsman wait a week, then go murder a local lawman for... revenge or something. The Tech Priest flees the scene early, while the Guardsman decides to stick around to murder the lawman's children, and is cripplingly wounded (gunfire and car door) and arrested.

    So the Tech Priest goes to the nearest Imperial Guard outpost and attempts to have a message sent to their Inquisitor. He then returns to the apartment the group has been living in, and waits two months. He spends some time attempting to build extraordinarily heretical servitors, but that's a different issue.

    *they are now fleeing

    In the meantime, the Psyker has been taken by the Judge's pleasure cult. They pamper him, giving him all sorts of bling. Eventually they begin tatooing him, and he still doesn't balk. When they insist on branding him, he complains a bit, but still sits through it. For those of you unfamiliar with 40k, this is how you make a daemonhost.

    Tech Priest continues derping while waiting for the execution date of the Guardsman. The cult then completes the ritual and turns the Psyker into a daemonhost, who begins rampaging through the upper spire. Fortunately (lolplotdevice), their Inquisitor and his retinue have arrived on planet that morning, and he dispatches the daemonhost, cultists, and assorted warpspawn with his Sororitas heavy weapons team and Storm Trooper squad.

    Inquisitor has Guardsman released and BLAMs him, Tech Priest manages to make a fantastic Fellowship roll to lie about all of this not being his fault.

When they reach topside, they hear all about this super-awesome-special-secret festival that's happening at the end of the week. They then spend almost the entire week trying to rob people and collect an arsenal, never asking once about the festival.

    Dark Heresy. Planet being besieged by orks, beleaguered defenders send us to check out a nearby Arbites precinct house to see if they left behind any spare arms or armour, as every little helps at this point. We're a short distance from arming civilians, thats how bad things are.
    So, owing to stumbling into a whole field of Oopsidaisies inside the precinct, we all stumble out into the impound lot. The precinct is also on fire at this point. That's of slightly less concern to us than the Mega-Armoured Nob who has just power-klaw'd his way through the chainlink fence surrounding the impound lot, however.

    So, we all pile into a truck and a few hair raising rounds of OH FUCK WHY WON'T IT START later, we flee the scene. The Nob, who is now ALSO on fire, cannot quite keep up with us due to the massive weight of his armour, and we begin to get clear.

    At this point, our Psyker decides he's going to cast a spell, either Point Blank Shot or Spasm (I forget) which does absolutely nothing to the Nob.. and then he rolls Perils. Specifically, he floats up into the air, static electricity flying all over the place.

    He floats upwards.

    The truck, already moving at full speed, rolls out from underneath him.

    The Nob keeps coming, grinning like a madman...

    Casting while driving is a terrible idea even without the Perils, since you have to concentrate, and concentrating on something else for like 3 seconds or so can be a terrible idea when you drive through a hive street while there is war and trying to run from a Nob.

    It wasn't right up there, I'll admit, but the Psyker's player kind of has a history of HURRRRR. Remember when I said I had a million of these? 90% of them are him. Also, until he decided to cast his spell and take one last pop at the ork, we were pretty much home free; there was nothing the Nob could do to stop us from escaping.

    He reversed gravity no less than eight times in that campaign alone, on one notable case actually KILLING THE ENTIRE PARTY apart from the Techpriest (who had actually bought a clipharness and deployed it every time he saw the Psyker begin to manifest a power, JUST BECAUSE THIS SHIT KEPT HAPPENING). They survived by collectively burning a fate point, which lead to such a massive ripple in the warp that the cultists we were after managed to accidentally summon a couple of Bloodletters, much to their surprise.

    Case in point: He decided that the best way to introduce himself to a new member of the Cell was to loudly proclaim that he was going to 'EAT THEIR SOUUUUUL'. They broke his jaw.

    You CAN tear a hole in the warp with a level 0 spell (ok, actually the weakest psyker powers are moar like level 1, Light and such), but if you want want to manifest some mighty stuff, you have to rise your risk of perils.
    It works like that: You have a Psy rating, starting at 1, and with 6 being OMGWTFBBQ. You may roll that much d10 (or less if you want) to manifest a power, and add your Willpower bonus (between 3 and 5, usually) to it. If you beat the threshold of a power you want to manifest, you manage to manifest it. The weakest powers have threshold 5, the strongest eva something like 23. For each 9 you roll on your manifestation, you invoke psychic phenomena, which aren't really bad in most cases, but with 25% probability the phenomena become perils, which are the bad ones.
    The veil to the Warp may be weakened or even almost non-existent somewhere. These adds to your manifestation roll, but invokes phenomena on 7-10 or something (if weakened) or even every time (if it is seriously damaged).

    More tales of this guy's phenomenal lack of judgement, this time in Rogue Trader. The party is as follows:

    Full Retard: Archmilitant, wearing military-standard power armour and toting a bewildering array of weapons, including a Plasma Cannon.

    Homebrewed Eldar pilot. Player can't really roll very well for some reason, but he tries.

    Ork Freeboota. Recently replaced part of his cranium with bulls horns and is ABSOLUTELY ECSTATIC ABOUT THIS.

    Astropath, who has a major artifact of some horrible xenos entity attached to the end of his staff by a bit of string because he doesn't actually know what it fucking is. Fun guy to play with, takes entertaining risks but isn't retarded about it.

    Finally, my character; an Explorator with a power axe, a jump pack, and a genius level IQ (thanks to a stolen Best Quality Cortex Implant!) that made him erratic at best, insane at worst.

    Every time you use a power you need to roll at least one dice. If any die rolls a 9 you then roll to manifest phenomona, which are mild things like "it's cold" or "food goes off". If you roll above 75 on this then roll for Perils of the Warp, which are more serious and include reversing gravity, summoning daemons and instant death.

    To sum up, for every physic die you roll there is a 1 in 40 chance for somethin bad to happen, and in exchange you get the only magic in the game world.

    So, the party is on some jungle planet filled with angry semi-sentient vegetation monsters, investigating a strange energy reading. Think plant-ewoks crossed with those terrifying midget-mummies from The Mummy Returns.

    Much to our surprise, we manage to find the remains of an imperial outpost. Specifically, we find it by falling through the skylights on the roof, because it is now completely overgrown with plants and the glass has long since been shattered.

    So, we're exploring the long-forgotten halls of this ancient research outpost, and the GM takes great care to tell us that the entire structure is very dilapidated and unstable and any large shocks such as an explosion could easily cause a fatal cave-in.
    We come across a room full of these large, organic looking bulbs growing out of the floor; like plant bulbs, you know? Either way, they're attached to tentacles, which promptly freak out and begin to attack us. We begin to fight them, the Ork gleefully charging into close combat with the Astropath and Eldar following, hacking away at the tentacles with power weapons.

    At this point, the Arch-Militant loudly states that he is firing his plasma cannon.

    The entire room stares at him. The Ork player asks him if he knows what a plasma cannon actually does, to which he proudly responds "Yes. It fucks shit up."

    The thing is, a weak power might need 1 die to manifest, while a stronger one could need 5/6. More dice means a higher chance of perils.

    Now, the Plasma Cannon has a blast radius. Everyone in the party apart from the Arch-Militant (and me, as I am standing next to him) is inside said radius. Not only that, the Eldar player is badly wounded from an encounter with the mummy-ewoks, and if he is hit, there is LITERALLY NO WAY HE CAN SURVIVE. Archmilitant is informed this, in no uncertain terms.

    He argues that he can't really do anything else, the rest of the group point out that he has about six other guns on him RIGHT NOW, he argues that they don't do as much damage, the rest of the group points out that firing a massive anti-tank weapon inside a visibly unstable building is an absolutely retarded thing to do, and so on.

    Now, I've seen this kind of argument flare up before, and all it means is that the Arch-Militant's player inevitably loses, spends the rest of the night sulking, and generally spoils the atmosphere of the whole night.

    So, while everyone else is arguing, I turn to the GM and tell him I want to make a Tech-Use test.

    "What for?"

    "I want to turn off his Plasma Cannon."

    Now, the GM loves this. I mean he REALLY loves this, so he has me roll for it, and I pass by about seven degrees of success. I am a fucking technological genius, after all.

    It is about this time that the Arch-Militant's player notices whats going on, and demands that he should be able to notice what I'm doing and stop me. The GM points out that actually, he probably can't see what i'm doing too well as he has an ENORMOUS PLASMA CANNON ON HIS SHOULDER BETWEEN HIM AND ME. Still, he outright DEMANDS a perception check, which the GM alllows.. And he promptly fails miserably.

    So, the Militant goes to fire his Plasma Cannon, which makes a stuttering whine and fails to charge. The rest of the group promptly dispatch the bulbs with ease (as it turns out, they only had about three wounds left between them).

    Militant calls me an asshole and decides to spend the rest of the night sulking even harder than usual, before leaving for home early, apparently completely unaware that I had only been trying to stop everyone from getting angry at him in the first place..

    C'est la vie, I guess.

    Not my group. I think they only keep him around because he was one of their original members (they all know each other from school) OR he makes for an entertaining punching bag; most of his characters are incredibly shitty, but he's convinced that they're full-on amazing gamebreaking deathmachines because he (I'm pretty sure) makes threads on RPG forums asking for overpowered character builds. This makes his inevitable failure and death more humiliating.

    Honestly, I feel kind of sorry for him, which is why I was trying to be discreet and force him into using another weapon and helping the group out.

    In the very first session of the very first campaign I ever played (Dark Heresy), we were tasked with kidnapping a club owner who had links to a big smuggling ring in the hive.

    We snuck in alright, and the GM asked everyone to roll perception. One of our many durp guardsman passes on a 1 to see a 17 year old girl steal my wallet on a 2. Bearing in mind my wallet is empty, and I made this clear before we entered, because one of our psykers had to pay for my entry. In response, he draws his autorifle, and blasts her on full auto. in a crowded club. which we were supposed to be infiltrating. she turns to goo, and we somehow get off scot free.

    Bearing in mind, this is the same session I murdered a higher ranking acolyte because I saw him pocket some archeotech (I was a techpriest, so yeah). I ended up getting kidnapped.

    Playing nWoD, being one of those GM's with a super special snowflake story (the players had the option to abandon the story at any time and I wouldn't stop them, but they were trying to prevent an apocalyptic event, which most likely would've killed them if they did nothing about it. It was a 7 day campaign, game time.)

    >Stationed in a room in a large building in San Francisco

    This was a one off game of DnD 3rd ed we played with a party of two thieves on a day when the rest of the players couldn't make it. I was the DM. The two thieves scraped through stunt after insane stunt on dumb luck. Finally I decided their over-the-top shenanigans had attracted the attention of a vigilante. This is what followed:

    >thieves run into a series of explosive-based traps while robbing a house
    >meet the vigilante who anticipated their arrival and set the traps
    >a fight ensues, continuing to showcase the vig's skill with explosives
    >thieves escape, wounded and empty handed after a brief fight with the vig
    >they go back to their home only to find the door ajar and the lock broken
    >one thief asks the other "do you think the vig is here?"
    >the other says "we'll find out!" and busts the door down

    Better than the Tomb of Horrors, which was "well, you all. LOLDED, no save, Gygax said". The place instead SCREAMED INSTANT DEATH and gave you simple rules to avoid being red blots. Tomb of Horrors didn't had "1. Don't move all the levers down. 2. Don't jump in the mouth of statues. 3.

    Yeah, but being a Tournament Module, Tomb of Horrors is specifically fun because of the player deaths. Nobody runs that place expecting to make it out alive.

    Unless, of course, you put the Tomb into an already established campaign with characters that people put time into, (Or think that's the intended use of the module) in which case you're a fucking retard and shouldn't be DMing anyways.

    Running Deathwatch. Decided to spice up the usual 'Kill shit' I'd been running them through with some roleplay.

    Mission: Chaos is attacking a planet to get a holy relic being held by a SOB Order, the main military force on the planet. It is unknown if they will hold or not at this point and there is no support incomming soon, so the Deathwatch has been asked to retrieve the relic for safety.

    What I expected: Fight/Sneak thier way through scattered Chaos Forces, convince the Sisters to allow them to take the relic, make a mad dash for the evac zone.

    What they do: Three of the players, even after I've given a description of the Convent that includes twenty metre tall walls with heavy bolter emplacements and an Armoured Company (Including a Fucking Stormlord painted up in SOB colours) decide the best option is to take the convent by force.

    Space Wolf Tactical: We can take 'em, It's just the Sisters!
    Space Wolf Assault: Yeah, lets storm the castle!
    Ultramarine Devestator: Yeah, sounds good to me. They'd probebly flamer us anyway.
    Lamentor Apothecary: Dudes? Umm...I don't think I can stand by you if you do this. The Sisters are our allies and my chapter was kinda given our first company banner by this order...
    Others: Oh come on, we can do it!
    Lamentor: No. If you do this, I'm standing by the Sisters, not you. They are our allies.

    So yeah, they part ways and the three stooges head towards the convent.

    The point is they may have suspicion but not jurisdiction. If they're asking, politely, then they probably are not actually allowed to search without the owner's permission. So, they'll ask, and if you really are a perfectly law-abiding citizen you'll could yes and they'll check and you'll be in the clear, but if you say no they still don't have enough evidence to do anything about it. You might be smuggling or you might just like your privacy.

    They walk up, in plain sight of the walls. The Sisters see the non-chaos colours and don't immediately fire but radio down for them to identify. The Devestator opens fire with his heavy bolter. The tactical begins to snipe Sisters with his bolter and the Assault Marine uses his jump pack to get to the top of the walls and begin slicing people up.

    They kill a few then the Sisters begin to hit back. The Assault Marine is the first to fall, quite litterally in his case as he manages to fail an opposed STR test against a Celestian and gets kicked off the walls.

    The Tactical Marine gets pissed at this and refuses to retreat when the tanks start rolling out of the gates. He gets pasted when the Exorcist opens up on his position, even after the devestator pissbolted from it.

    The Devestator makes no effort to conceal himself or his tracks and enjoys being hunted down by Seraphim and shot as he tries to explain that it wasn't his idea.

    The Apothacary radios in his position, formally requests to enter and helps patch up Sisters wounded in the 'False Flag Chaos attack', convinces the Cannoness to allow him to sneak the relic out and completes his mission without having to fire a shot.

    I'm not sure who died the worst. The Assault Marine losing an assault to a human, the Tactical being too retarded to retreat from an anti-armour tank or the Devestator begging for his life.

    What heavy weaponry? The Lone Star cops he was being held up by were in a patrol car for a quiet neighborhood, and packing nonlethal weapons. When he fought back, all they could do was tase him. I even informed him as he asked for the description of the cops that they were packing no obvious firearms, but had holstered tasers. He could have taken them at any time, but he waited until the worst possible moment.

    I hate the "all ones are failures, all 20s successes, no matter how ridiculous" sort of people myself. I only allow it to my DM in the D&D setting he made himself, with more than half the rules written anew, and only for Wizardry checks and the like. He made magic, metamagic and counterspell into a skill check and made a mana system instead of spell per day. Of course, every spellcaster has his Wizardry/Theurgy skills maxed out, and won't actually fail even on a nat 1. However, if we roll a 1, he lets us "confirm" it. If we roll something other than 1 on the re-roll, the spell works, but looks differently (light makes a weird formed spot or is unusually coloured or whatever, mage armour is visible as actual armour, he makes up new stuff on the spot every time). If, however, we roll two ones in row, the spell backfires, in a way dependant on the spell (in the only case it happened so far, a light spell caused 1d6 damage to the caster and set the robe that was the target of the spell on fire. He announced, however, that attack spells would be way more dangerous). 1/400 probability for a hilarious mistake is ok, even if the skill is maxed out (currently our wizards in that campaign have +18 or so on wizardry checks)

    DH has critical damage tables that grow rather extreme in the details.
    (10 critical damage (in excess of lifepoints) from a laser weapon to the torso means the target dies in a fireball that makes all ammo on the body go off and all combustible materials burn away.)

    I don't think gunpowder in a wineskin would be much of an explosion, to be honest. I mean, think of a grenade - those things are stuffed with TNT. Wineskin is similar size, maybe more explosives in volume, but significantly less powerful.

    And what does it have to create shrapnel with? Not a metal casing like a grenade! Just some leather.

    I could see it taking off your hand if it went off while you were holding it, but other than that it'd probably just make a loud bang.

    Of course he does. It's not the DM's job to be your moral guardian. If you or your characters don't like it, you or your characters should say something like "what the fuck" or move to stop him. You can't stop the player from saying "this is what my character does". You can't negate his existence. It was weird and creepy, and you react to it in-character.

    I'm not the GM, but I can't help but share some of the incredibly stupid shit I pulled off. First, let me say that we are playing a setting which is pretty much a post-apocalyptic monster hunter, and we're using the GURPS setting.

    The character I made was pretty much a viking who used a sword and shield, but he was also a doctor. He was like a mixture of Ryoma Nagare and Dr. McNinja with a touch of Kamina (at least this is what I was going for).

    First Session:
    >Party is in subway
    >A large creature that is a mix between a boar and a lion appears and charges at us
    >"I charge at it"
    >Fail roll
    >Get gored by one of the tusks and tossed to the side
    >Immediately begin patching self up while rest of party slays it

    Another moment:
    >Facing a massive creature that is basically pyramid head. He wields a giant tank barrel that he uses as both a club and a blowpipe.
    >Discover he is blind
    >Stand in front of him and wave my arms
    >Get knocked all the way across the military complex we were in, and into a wall

    >Search market for prosthetic limbs because some party members got fucked up in missions.
    >Find cute girl selling prosthetic limbs
    >Use sex appeal to try and get a discount
    >"Nice limbs you got there... the prosthetics, I mean."
    >Turns out she is batshit insane, and lopped off her own limbs to use prosthetics.

    Later on:
    >PLOT happens, end up getting drunk in a bar
    >Wander town in a drunken stupor
    >Said crazy girl wanders up to me.
    >Invites me to go out with her on a wild party
    >Roll to find out if this is legit. Fail.
    >Go out with her
    >Wake up with a highly graphic tattoo that covered entire leg, and a mysterious woman's name on penis


    >Go up against super sentai knock-offs
    >They have guns trained on me
    >I have party members with guns hidden
    >"TIME TO USE MY MIND POWERS" I shout, trying to copy what happened in a Dr. McNinja comic.
    >One fires the bazooka at me.

    Yeah my usual DM is a great guy, but whenever we play anything he really fucks with me. I left for a couple sessions after that because I was pissed, he later apologized for the whole deal. We talked it out and we devised a truly amazing way to get some payback. I came back into the game as a fallen paladin, took some levels in cleric and betrayed my party and through some PLOT became the BBEG that royally fucked things up. It's now assumed that in that setting, my character ruled as a Lich for centuries using the dead bodies of the heroes that tried to defeat me to destroy everything.

    Brand new game of oWoD, party of vampires + 1 mage. Relatively new players, we had the mage, who knew his shit in and out. We had his protegé ravnos who was stealth+shotgun. Had the cammie ventrue face who pretty much only fed on Loli's (he pitched the idea as teen girls, pitching hot almost of age girls... apparently his definition of almost of age was vastly different... ), and the malkavian pc's ghoul (she tried dementating the mage for luls. His retaliation was... hot.).

    So intro storyline, they are buying guns as I left them high and dry on equip, to leave plothooks and see what grabbed. So the cammie ventrue meets some people he recognizes as sabbat ghouls, but his status and age means they dont fuck with him. Instead they ask politely if he sees a girl fitting X description to call them. Oddly, his own superiors wanted a similar girl. Didn't think anything of this hook myself.

    Later they find said girl (oracle-based setite pacifist, basically isis's incarnation npc). The ventrue doesn't call the number, he uses his contacts to trace it. Finds out it goes to a cafe in St Paul, confirming it is also a front for sabbat nastiness from his camarilla compatriots, as they knew full well it was chock full of scum.

    >> Anonymous 03/18/11(Fri)05:41 No.14283835

    Rolling a critical success IRL, the ventrue leads the entire party into the cafe. The only two party members who really knew the shit they were getting into were half-listening reading how bad ass the mage system was, and drooling on their book. They look up as I describe how a short haired bruiser type woman comes up, with the tzcimize tattoo all down her arm, as they are seated in the dead middle of the crowded cafe.

    The cafe was guarded outside, an outside with guards who recognized the venture, who knew everyone because he was so famous himself, his whole spiel, so they led him into the center table like a lamb to the slaughter....

    The tzcimize asks "So what are you having?" as if to keep up the ploy. "Nothing thanks, we only drink blood. Except the wizard there." Pointing him out kindly.

    The mage's eyes showed me, his pants were laden with bricks.

    Same oWod Game

    When the malkavian died, he rerolled eventually into a mage. For those who don't know, mage magic tends to blow up worse and is easier to blow up when people who are 'unawakened' are watching. We had deemed vampires to be unawakened by default, as they believe reality as it stands.

    So, while one guy is socializing a nest of baddies, he gets bored and approaches the main gate. Decides to order his nanobites to utterly break reality, to replicate a laser beam from his elbow to shoot the guy in the neck through his gun, with the guard staring him in the face.

    Prior to this, he had told the 2 vampires and 1 human hunter in the group stationed a block away, to watch his back.

    (And to those who know MtA - he already had 12 paradox)

    He wondered why he died from that backlash.

    But "Watch my back" became an inside joke with that party...

    Wasn't there for this one, but apparently a player in a group I recently quit thought the party really should stop and explain themselves. He was the one legit person on their ship with no criminal record, the rest were about to be caught.

    So he las-welded himself in the engine room, being the engineer, saying he was stopping the jump engine so they couldn't flee the law. They began welding in. So his best choice was to use what plastex-b he had on him, to detonate the core of the reactor. Yes the core. With him still in the engine room.

    So he detonates it as they cut through. Blows up the back half of the ship and takes 3/4 the party with him.

    The broken law? They hadn't paid for their rooms rent on the station, and the station was calling them back to fix the situation.

    They decide where one is, theres more. So he says...

    "Okay, I run out there, I cast missle shield, and then I take aim at the first one."

    "You what?" (To confirm)

    "I open the door if it shut again, check my gun to ensure the safety is off, run outside, and cast missle shield on myself. Then if I have time that action, I take aim at the first guy I see."

    So all the bandits with readied actions on the door light him up. It isn't until his final death check is being rolled he realizes these aren't magic bullets. His ordering was a tad off....

    The unawakened are generic bystanders who do not believe in the supernatural.
    Vampires do, by default, unless they do not know they are vampires.

    I played a paladin in a recent game, I didn't want to get in the way of looting that much so I agreed that the rogue could roll bluff to distract me with stories while the fighter and sorcerer went through the loot.
    There was one point where the fighter picked up the charred remains of a kobold and decided to strap it to his sheild. Even the rogue wouldn't try and bluff for that and I approached him on it as soon as I saw it. He rolled bluff. 20 vs 1
    I believed up until he lost the shield that the kobold was a lifelike replica of the dead kobold we killed "To honor him." He's got awful luck in combat but he always rolls high in skill.

    >>Pick up sealed bag, feels like coins in it.
    >>Pass it to our emo mage.
    >>Group of three men come over and leader says to give it back, as he dropped it.
    >>Ask the leader how many gold coins were in the bag.

    my character was a monk, the other PC was a fighter. through diplomacy, bluffing and lying, we had convinced a rat-man to lead us to his people's nest so we could get rid of 'em. so there we went through the dark tunnels, following our new "rat friend".

    in this session everything we players said was immediately spoken by the characters. the fighter's player, overjoyed by our success in fooling the ratman, casually said:

    "yes, yes, lead us so we can kill all the ratmen!"

    our guide halted and slowly turned himself to stare at the fighter. noticing too late his own dumbness, the fighter's player quickly amended:

    ".... I thought"

    WFRP. Players have to save a small town from a band of Ogre man eaters. Party made of a shield breaker, a rat cacther and a peasant they sneak in, as the ogre on watch is too busy praising the great maw by eating a pig. Whole. Rat catcher brings his small dog with the party. ....

    Here's the rundown. Pathfinder, Level 10 party, fairly experienced players, all awesome bros. The quest is to genocide a boggard village. 53 underleveled boggards and an unknown quantity of animal allies. The party consists of a bard, a cavalier, a sorcerer, an arcane trickster, and a fighter.

    We breeze through about half the boggards, taking a total of maybe 20 damage spread through the entire party, using minimal resources. Inevitably, we make it through to the boss of the encounter, a high level boggard cleric. We fail to do much in the surprise round, and he floods the room with water with magic. The cavalier has freedom of movement, so it ain't even a thang. The bard has a famously terrible record at swim checks, and decides to hide inside her own bag of holding because the air inside will hold out longer.

    >Bard forgets she is carrying a portable hole.

    >player attempts knowledge check to remember.


    >Bard, Fighter, Arcane trickster all immediately transported to the astral plane.

    >Sorceror is sucked into the astral plane soon after by the current.

    >cavalier fucks up basic math, dies from a death effect spell he should have lived through, corpse falls into the astral plane too.

    Yes - our GM was a first-time GM and a first-time WFRP user, having played Dungeons & Dragons aeons ago. He was using the information in front of him as a rough guide, but was making up rules as he went along - not insane ones to help us or hinder us specifically, but ones which he thought would make sense.

    So, yes, he raped WHRP. But we've still got an interesting roleplay out of it.

    Lightning still fries, and run of the mill human guards aren't likely to know that.
