    When my friend's Ex-Bounty Hunter PC sacrificed himself to destroy a crime lord and free the planet of Coruscant, he thought he had died noble. However, his sacrifice deeply saddened his NPC Queen secret-spouse-to-be, who then proceded to kill herself. This sent the galaxy into turmoil, and a new Empire arose. My other friend and mine's stopped him, but died in the resulting explosion. Details afterward yet to come...

    A few nice things to do when you want to smuggle on board an Imperial Nebulon-B frigate under the guise of techs asked to repair its hyperdrive :

    1) Go to the local Imperial base with no documents of any form attesting you're a qualified tech, and hardly a clue of what a power coupling is (0 ranks in repair for both PCs wanting to go up and sabotage the frigate)
    1b) What ? You didn't even have ID on you to get past the entry checkpoint ? Not even your OWN ? :p (invalids point 1)

    2) When you're satisfied with looking much like an idiot and shooting a couple of Imp Militia to get away, try and make it for a shut-down and guarded spaceport without bothering to lie low, cover your face, or arrange for fake ID to be made (both PCs were Scoundrels with the skills it took to do the three :p )

    3) Once you HAVE disguised and picked up your own IDs (why bother to make fake ones when you could easily get arrested with your own ?), sneak into the spaceport and go to a shuttle ready to take the techs hired by the Empire to work on the frigate as well as spare parts. Give the troops acting escort for the shuttle personnel the nice shiny IDs of people officially wanted for crimes (status achieved by shooting Stormtroopers instead of exiting the cantina by the back door while things were noisy inside), and when the troops politely invite you on board, be a good boy/girl and walk into the trap.

    4) Smile to the GM as he explains you that yes, it's logical that the shuttle took them to the frigate as prisoners - wanted people hardly ever sneak on board a frigate blockading a planet with good intents - and that you acted the perfect part of the clumsy Rebels. And yes, the GM rolled a very low Int roll for the troops, meaning that rather than take them prisoners while the shuttle was still on the ground (just in case the clumsy attempt was a diversion), they took off and then forced the PCs to surrender.

    5) Take the blank character sheet handed you and try better :D

    (All of this took about two hours real-time :p )

    Ok so My friends character Cuts off the heads of our enemies which have just been defeated and keeps them in a backpack.

    My friend once recieved infinite reams of paper in wich he used to give papercuts to every one.

    I have this old guy in the Campaign I'm GM for and I have no clue what to do with him he is just a slave to the party and things get pretty sick if you know what I mean. I don't have any clue why I invented him Maybe I'll do something with him like hav him be a spy or something oh well.

    My Sith Lord character purposefully has the Force give him an alternate personality so that he can stay with the party and strike when the time is right.

    Needless to say, he does.

    To make a long story short in a "Tales of the Jedi" game I ran. The party inadvertently managed to convince a village of primitive religious zealots that their gods have forsaken them, causing the mass suicide of the entire village (includung livestock.) The horrified looks on their faces were priceless.

    Ok, I suppose it's about time I contributed to a thread I actually started.
    I was GMing a game set halfway between Episodes 1 and 2. My players (a Consular, Guardian, Soldier, and some other wierd class, probably a Fringer) were sent to Calimari to settle a dispute between the Mon Cal and Quarren that was about to erupt into a full scale war.
    The group starts off by going first to the Quarren Embassy, to offer a promise of full cooperation between both sides. One "one" dice roll on Diplomacy later, and the Quarren storms out of the office, outraged that the party would insult his maternal heritage so badly! War is inevitable.
    What does the party do? What would any good soldier do? Well, this soldier proceeds to the Mon Cal defense force and starts instructing them on small yet collateral heavy terrorist attacks that will help cripple the Quarren forces and make them surrender quickly.
    The Jedi try in vain to get the Mon Cal to beg the Quarren back to the bargaining table, but an assassination attempt on a Mon Cal diplomat quickly ends that.
    The best way to fight a force that's much further down the trenches than you are? Well, the players figure putting a waterproof sublight engine on a really heavy anchor and pointing it down at the domed Quarren cities is a good idea. This act of border-line genocide earned the party the admiration of the Mon Cals, the undying hatred of the Quarren, and forced the Quarren to petition for peace, without much in the way of bargaining chips. Suffice to say, now the Quarren have a real reason to side with the Seperatists.

    I took two jedi to a remote planet for them at the low price of 5000 credits. I then upped the price to 5000000 if they ever wanted to get back home..... while the natives were attacking us

    That'd be dark-ish. If I was one of those Jedi PCs, you'd've had your mind affected before you could blink, though :p

    Tey tryed that. Too bad I rolled a natural 20 on my willpower role..... Did I metioned this was in a stolen starship? I stole the ship then the jedi came in and hired me to go to some out of the way planet. I never had so much money in my life =).

    On the mind effecting note. Once Yoda Mind tricked me into believing I was the chosen one...

    I was GMing a group of mercenarys who decided to go off the mission path i layed and start a mass genocide of the gungans(you can guess they didnt like episode 1) well to do it first they slaughterd a gungan camp woman children every one then told the gungans it was the imps gave one a thermal detonater and sent him in the imp garrison, big bada boom, thus beggining a week(real time) war between the two that got them many jobs for the empire and ruined my well thought out campaign.

    I did get them back for it later when they were given a job on endor gaurding a certain sheild genarator and resulting in the deaths of 3 out of the 4 players. when they were all captured by the rebals and down to almost no hit point the merc who now conciderd him self loyal to the empor decided to raise his blaster and shoot him self of course the rebals were all set to fire if one raised a blaster and gunned down the imp lover and two of his companions one managed to survive and eventually escape but after that it get boring so...

    Worst thing? Hmm...that's probably saying alot, but...I've ben playing a characher named Gath Daak (Yes, it's pronounced Goth Da'k [Dark]), who's a Zabrak who recently qualified for the Sith Warrior prestige class (during the New Jedi Order era) and managed to pick up a Sith holocron. I've been using the rule from Jedi Counseling 10 which described a variant rule for Force Lightning as a targeted attack. Now, targeted attacks, by definition, can be aimed at a specific part of the body (a Called Shot). In addition, I use the force techniques out of the Hero's Guide which allow Maximize Force among others. I figure, if a character can MAXIMIZE the force, the reverse should also be true--a character can minimize a power for the effect o non-lethal torture. Now, with those two facts secuurely in mind, what Gauth Daak does, then, is fairly simple:


    FORCE LIGHTNING TO THE CROTCH!!!!!


    Brings 'em down every time!

    i don't know if this qualifies as the worst.....but it was freaky

    we were 5 players one Merchant and 4 very none wanted jedi hiding in a storage space
    as were beeing boarded by the huts guards demanding to check the ship and wile the merchant tours the ship with two very suspishous guards
    they come across the locked storage space were were all hiding and demanding that the poor merchant opens the door. he does and the following takes place

    Human jedi *sneezes loudly*
    guard 1 "what was that??" *draws blaster*
    merchant "that was nothing! its just my eumm priced singing plants from the planet cho*cough*bo"
    everyone in hiding starts singing like madmen

    GM *rolls dices to see exsactly how intelligent is this guard anyways??* 1 1 1 = 3 eumm
    GM rolls dices for second guard 1 2 1 = 4... OMG did they just come across the must unintelligent patrol ever?
    GM rolls a dice to see just how good the merchant can presvade the two idiots perfect roll!!
    GM rolls for the guards.... critical failiur
    guard 1 wile guard 2 stands there drooling on him self "OMG singing plants!? what a marvel ill give you an escort the hut must see this!!?!
    merchant "you sure you don't want to buy some of the plants?"
    Guard1 ohhh can i arent they awefully expensive?
    merchant ohhh noo i got thease seeds here too
    GM does another check to see if the Guard going to by seeds from this merchant?? poor guardsman criticaly fails agen by now he bought this storie totaly and hes even going to spend his hard earned credits to buy seeds from the merchant :D

    i think it was one of the more idiotic RP sessions ever and its a legend in over group
    however i don't sudjest trying it on your GM i meen the odds of thouse two guards acualy buying that storie was incredibly low
    and next time you hire guardsmen to search vessles make sure they atleast got basic intelligense strength and marksmanship isent everything:p

    Ok, we were playing a KotOR-era game. We needed to destroy a Sith base on Selonia. Three of our PCs died along with a hundred jedia nd a few thousand republic soldiers. And the base was still there. So, we had to boyz left. My very embittered Mandalorian(he shot one of the Jedi PCs :D ) and a very-clo9se-to-the-darkside Jedi. We came up with an excellent way to solve the problem. We had learned earler about what Centerpoint station does and how to work it. So, we fired it up and grabbed Corellia using its uber-repulsor-thing. We then proceeded to bash Selonia multiple times with Corellia. Then a Sith fleet showed up. We fired Centerpoint's "Starbuster" shot into the Corellian system's star and then used our ship to get away. Barely. The GM then said the Dark Jedi characer went totally to the Dark side. I didnt know it so I was working outside the ship repairing it in space in my Crusader armor, sealed up with an oxygen tank for deep-space. The Dark Jedi comes out in his space suit. We fight and I get into the ship. I immediatly jump to hyperspace with the Dark Jedi still holding onto the ship. [face_devil]

    We had to get onto the set of a famous holovid show to talk to one of the stars for some reason. "In this episode of The Expendables, the heroes fight a rancor!" We show up on this restricted planet in a stolen speeder, and drive up to the front gate. "Hi, we're the stunt doubles." THe GM snarfs soda.
    "Fine, roll your coniving"
    "OK, 6d+2"
    "WHAT!?!"
    "Well, he's good at bossing others arround, and good at lieing."
    "Fine, roll"
    "34 (got a 6 on the wild die)"
    "Fine 'Your late, suit up and get in there.'"

    The Life and Times of Daz Ozierka.... and His Son.

    Daz started out as your average smuggler... then he met Avis Anthros and all Cleveland broke loose.

    Daz had the personality of Snake Plisskin. Point guns at gay opera singers who would hit on him. Seducing a cop of a different species (and subsequently getting her pregnant... more in a sec) so his compatriots could gather info and sneak into a "guarded" place.

    Oh. and forcing an entire garrison of imps to agrees to his terms on a bounty. (he basically was a mercenary by this point.... mash together smuggler and bounty hunter).

    the imps. "we are the empire, you get only this much."

    daz. "no, the agreement was for this much, i found the bounty. there happened to be 10 of them. this much times 10."

    the imps. *aim guns* this much and you'll be happy with it. (lowered amount)

    daz. "i don't think so. this much"

    imps *guns go clicky* "this much, pray we don't change the offer further*

    daz. *big smile* "10 times this amount" *reveals enough thermal detonators to wipe out a mid sized city and a killswitch*

    imps. *guns lower* "uh. heh heh. we uh, only have 3 times, not 10 times, we don't have access to more funding. it's all we have." *soldiers start emptying pockets of spare change to throw in*

    Daz then changed his appearance and became Tyd D'sani cuz the dirty stinking garrison commander posted a bounty.

    later, opens Hotel Angelus, a Space Station in the Elrood Sector. Complete with Amusement Park, Opera House, Casino, Sports Complex, and guided tours of the nature resrve planet below..... and the space station had its own squadron of starfighters, ion cannons, heavy blaster cannons, etc. (he had a thing against pirates trying to steal his stuff).

    he later became a senile old man. his son, a halfbreed, joined nri as a pilot. and rammed his x wing into a vong ship in the vacuum of space, and survived..... by hitting it at the right angle and piecing the ship.pinning a vong THROUGH a wall. the jedi who showed up ended up following his orders.

    funniest thing in a game... tossup... Daz and Avis on vacation... or watching a a half silver dragon fire off his cold breath weapon at a red dragon to watch it appear to have no effect and say "oops, i sneezed. i have a cold, sorry."

    One of my stormtrooper characters (in our infamous Imperial campaign way back in '97) was an 'experimental specimen', thanks to my beloved GM who really liked to seriously handicap my characters in a way he deemed funny. So my guy looked perfectly normal, but he had a sprinkling of Oskan Blood Eater genes (Oskans supposedly being another experiment). The poor lad always had to roll against his willpower when he smelled blood.... fortunately he had a good grip on himself. Now...

    To cut it short, the lad he was on patrol with in the aftermath of the battle of Hoth was killed. My guy managed to wipe out the rag-tag rebel leftovers who had attacked the patrol, but then he failed his willpower roll and started to tear into his deceased squad mate. Right then the commander arrived...
    The commander goggled at the grisly scene in disbelief, then he whipped out his blaster with one hand and the commlink with the other, trying to call the base and tell them that 18 had gone off his rocker.
    The GM ordered me to do another willpower roll, which I botched royally. The commander didn't even manage to switch on the commlink - my poor lad jumped him, and thus started the second 'all-you-can-eat' night on Hoth (if you count Luke's Wampa adventure).

    We had sent operatives to Corellia, to try and slice the Imperial network and download as much information as possible that might be useful in our personal guerilla war against the Empire. They (for some reason) tried to sneak into the CEC offices [so as to use their military-encoded holonet nodes] and got captured. It's up to us to bail them out, so Trelor'ren (Twi'lek scoundrel), Kylo (Human tech spec), O-13 (assassin droid :) ), T'al Q'Troi'in (Human merc) and Eet (the Jawa Force-adept) all head off to Corellia to bail them out. Now, Trel's head rumours about the Purge, and instructs the Jawa (who does have a bit of a self-control problem) NOT to use any Force powers in plain sight. And he was doing so well, right until the end of the mission, when we found our ship impounded. So in the middle of Corellia's biggest and busiest spaceport, he HAS to go and conjure a bloody great Force whirlwind. [face_plain]

    Now they've got an Inquisitor on their backsides. :)

    I spend most of my time GMing so I don't have many moments of my own but there is one moment that happened in a campaign I ran last summer that really struck a cord for me. It's not orbital bombardment but it gave me a chill anyway, maybe because of how well it was roleplayed.

    For backstory: The game was set about halfway through the Clone Wars and my party had a Fringer, a Soldier, a Pilot, A Jedi Guardian and a Jedi Consular. The story ended up revolving around the Jedi and the consular became the unnoficial leader. The main antagonist was a Dark Jedi who the two Jedi PCs had grown up with in the temple, and fell to the Dark Side as an underling of Dooku. One thing that should be understood is that throughout the game our Guardian was always very aggresive, while the Consular was serene and only went for his lightsaber at the last moment.

    The game climaxed on Dagobah, which was also where the players first encountered the Dark Jedi and the final battle ended with the Dark one killing the guardian and injuring most of the party before finally being beaten by the Consular.

    The scene was in the middle of the swamp with the Dark Jedi on his knees in front of the Consular, finally seeing how he was wrong and crying for forgiveness.

    The serene and peaceful Consular had a look on his face that would make Palpy whimper, he brought his un-ignited saber up to his enemy's forehead, spout pointing out and said, "You don't deserve it" and ignited the blade.

    The scene closed with the blade shutting off and the Dark Jedi's corpses falling below the water.

    For me it has to be when I was playing my Rebellion campaign. Both my char and my friends char were sent on a mission to Coruscant in disguise to help transport a noblewoman (who happened to be sympathetic to the rebels) with valuable information regarding the Imperial Navy's current plans off the planet and back to the Rebel Fleet. However, after we met up with her, we ran into a group of Imperial Storm Troopers and an Imperial Commander that were sent to escort her to meet with one of the high ranking Admirals. Because of our exploits against the Empire, my friend and I were pretty well known, and even through our disguises we were recognized and had to flee for our lives. We ended up getting cornered in a room on a higher floor of the same building the noblewoman was staying in where we ran into the bounty hunter Bossk, who wished to capture us for the bounty that we just recently discovered was on our heads. Anyways, before he was ready to attack, my char whipped out his blaster rifle and shot Bossk right in the face, nearly killing him. Bossk still had enough energy to escape through the window and vowed that he'd be back for our heads.

    After Bossk had "exited" the room, the Imperials were finally able to break through the door and we had no choice but to take a trip out the window ourselves. We were fortunate enough to be able to catch a lower balcony and escape to our ships, but it didn't last long as the Empire continued to give chase. We lost them eventually and were able to make it back to the Rebel Fleet in one piece, but it left us with a new sworn enemy, a bounty on our heads, and the Empire looking for each and every one of our asses that much harder. I'd have to say that the whole mission had to be the worst for me and my friend.
