I'll second that.
I'll third it. Fourth it too.
Look at me. Judge me by my size do you? And well you should not! For I am a 20th level character, and I can get a nat. 20 on my first attack without even rolling the dice!
We meet again Obi Wan. Last time I had 8D in Control and Sense, 6 in Alter, a lightsaber skill of 8D, and 3 DarkSide Points. Now I have 11 C&S, 10A, 12D lightsaber, and 8DSP pumping up all my Force Powers.You're still an NPC, Darth.
Making a sneak roll, solo?
Have enough Destiny Points to face this Darth Sidious, you do not.
Anakin: Luke, help me take this mask off. I could use the +2 Synergy bonus
Luke Skywalker: But you'll lose 1 point of CON/round and die in 13 rounds!
Anakin Skywalker: I'm already at -1, son. Just for once, let me look on you with my own eyes, without the +2 to spot...
Vader: You are unwise to take a full-round action to use diplomacy while in my threatened space!
"...the tracks go off in that direction."
"Look sir, I made my spot check: droids!"
The Force can have a strong influence on those with low Will Defenses.
I thought you Jedi would know the difference between Knowledge (galactic lore) and Perception...
With apologies to the KotOR games:
1.[Persuade] Father, please! Help me!
2.[Persuade/Lie] I'll do anything, just stop shooting me with lightning!
3. I see the truth at last. My feeble skills are no match for the power of the dark side. I submit to your training, Master.
Oh my...this thread is the best laugh I've had this week. Must print this out and take it to gaming Sunday night....
Tony: No Way! In a huge desert, the odds of them finding the pod are 1 in billions. Finding a dinky metal piece that broke of is 1 in 10 to the power of my overdraft!
Lucas: Infinate number of Monkeys. The Empire sent down enough troops to search the entire desert. They have 3 star destroyers in orbit now. With the tracking data they got scanning thye pod on it's way down, and the thousands of Stormtroopers at their disposal, one of them who was in the right spot, given enough time, got a 20 on his spot.
Tony: Logical. Eventually. Might have taken days though. The odds of it happening are--
Lucas: Never tell me the odds!
Kenny: Can I analyse his foot to see if I notice anything missing?
"You got a lot of nerve coming back here, after what you pulled."
*Force Point -> Bluff Roll*
In the vein of the "game session example" style thing from earlier...
FRANK: I leap up onto his senate box and draw my lightsaber.
GEORGE: He uses Force Lightning. He's also attempting to disarm you with it...(rolls) yeah, he did.
FRANK: Wait, where does it say he can do that?
GEORGE: The Power of Myth.
FRANK: (sigh) Fine, then I'll use Rebuke. (rolls) All right!
GEORGE: He uses Rebuke back.
FRANK: Wait, I thought he was out of that power!
GEORGE: He spent a Force point to regain it.
GEORGE: Just now!
FRANK: Fine, what happenes?
GEORGE: Well...(rolls) The double Rebuked power knocks you both back. He...(rolls) grabs onto the railing, but you are thrown too far back to do that so you take...(rolls) that much damage when you hit the central podium.
FRANK: Can I make a Climb check to catch myself?
GEORGE: At a -10 penalty.
FRANK What! Why?
GEORGE: No railing.
FRANK: Ok, so I fall again.
GEORGE: So you take...(rolls) this much damage. He's hanging from the rail of the senate box, laughing like mad.
FRANK: Screw this, I'm out of here.
GEORGE: What? You're running away?
FRANK: I can't beat him! I see what you're doing. You're trying to wrap up the campaign and you're trying to kill off all the PCs!
Palpatine: The dark side of the Force is a pathway to abilities some consider to be broken.
Unlocked by request.
GEORGE: So the door opens, and standing before you is...Darth Vader!
PETER: Son of a...
HARRISON: I shoot him!
HARRISON: I shoot him. With my blaster.
GEORGE: You can't. You're all captured!
HARRISON: Whaddya mean, I can't? I've got my heavy blaster pistol!
GEORGE: No you don't, everybody's unarmed.
HARRISON: The *bleep* I am! I never go anywhere without my pistol!
PETER: Carrie didn't have a gun, and since we're supposed to be in a peaceful city, I left my bowcaster back in our room. Just go with it, mate. I'd like to see how this plays out.
HARRISON: )&^$ that! I'm not going down without a fight! I use my Rapid Shot feat and Trigger Work talent. *rolls dice* Nat 20! Oh hells yes!
HARRISON: Forty two points of damage! Boo-yah! Bring it DV! w00t!
GEORGE: Uhhh...he blocks it with the Force!
GEORGE: Umm...yeah...he uses the Force to block your shots with his hand...yeah...and then he...uhh...uses the Force to snatch your blaster away from you...
CARRIE: No &@#$in way!
GEORGE: And then...uhh...Boba Fett appears and stands next to Vader...aaaaaand...a squad of stormtroopers sneaks up behind you! You're captured!
HARRISON: I call shenanigans!
PETER: I told you we should just let the encounter unfold. This is interesting! So what happens next?
HARRISON: I bet I'll get tortured and not be able to do anything about it! Or something lame like that
george: So, I'm taking a break from GMing to do more background work. This is Steve. He wanted to run a pulp-hero game. Who's in?
Carrie: sorry, I'm... Bar-hopping for the next few years.
George: But I need you to continue the game next semester.
Carrie: ug, well, maybe if you have something a little less sex-metaphore next time. C'mon, starfighters flying down a trench to fire into a hole?
Harry and Mark: What? Wait. Woah...
Peter: Hey, I'm just a big shaggy ape that's been walking around nude except for a bandolier.
Mark: Yeah, but nobody noticed because you're an alien. I'm not going to be here over the summer. See you all next semester.
Harry: I might be interested.
Steve: Love to have you. Think it would be better than having to rely on Tom--He's flakey and thiking of moving to Hawaii.
George: so, 1 person, maybe?
Alex: Hey, that's the way gamers are, George. You'll get used to it. I gotta go out and get a job now that I've graduated.
