    Well, this is a Mutants and Masterminds game, but I'll mention it anyway.

    So, our team has made it to New Athens, a small city on an island that has been out of contact with the rest of the world. We find it in ruins and being overrun by demons.

    In keeping with a trend I've been doing with the character, I'd been looking out for relics to loot for my apartment :p (It was a mystical-ish campaign, so I found a few. Got a holy Templar sword that I killed a greater demon with, a piece of the Cross, and one of the previously mentioned demon's horns.)

    So, we ran into two doppleganger demons. The Succubus we managed to capture alive. I cut off her hand and put it in a bag. Being a doppleganger, it grew back. I continued this 'til I had about 12. Then, she wouldn't talk, so I decapitated her and took the head.

    Later, when at the makeshift hq we'd set up with survivors, I was trying to recruit civilians to help defend the base. A small 8 yr. old boy came up to me, excited. "I wanna fight the demons...blah blah blah...have you seen a demon?"

    I grinned, and pulled the head out of the bag.

    Scarred for life, he ran away screaming...

    Guys, this stuff is golden! I haven't laughed so hard in ages. Having GMed for my entire SW career I know how frustrating it can be when players decide to go loco...none of them are as good as these but if anything happens in my current game I'll let you know. Also I now have plenty of good ideas for payback...

    Right, because I'm bored:

    One of the players and his PC, a Kel Dor Force Adept, were disliked by the entire group. He was disliked so much that for session after session the other players begged to kill the PC and thus put the player out of the game. Eventually they got their chance when the player missed a session and left the PC in my control...

    Confronted by a dark side FA who wanted the players to join him and help ride both the Senate and Jedi Order of corruption (its the thought that counts, right?) the group was offered a single chance to join with the DSer or be destoyed when they next met. One of the PC's, can you guess who, joined with the dark sider thinking that the two Jedi in the group and the Sullustian Republic Spec Forces Sniper were too disillusioned to see the truth in what the DSer said.

    The next session, the player of the Kel Dor having been away again, the other PC's met up with the traitor. Both groups were trying to escape a med center on Corillia before the timed explosives went off and destroyed the building(long story there). The Dark Side FA betrayed the Kel Dor, drugging him and left him tied to a bed, a trick to slow down the other PC's. The heroes stumbled across the helpless creature and subsuqently slit the Kel Dor's throat even as he slept.

    So much for running a light side campaign...

    The sickest thing is the the player of the Jedi Guardian who did the act spent all of 15 minutes rolling around the floor laughing his head off. Now him I worry about...

    A D&D character, an elven archer (Fighter/Deepwood Sniper), of mine took part in a coup of sorts by some members of the party to kill others of the party for experience, treasure, and items. He personally executed someone who had gloves of dexterity with a better bonus than his. Needless to say, in one fell swoop he went from chaotic neutral to chaotic evil.

    Wow. Just wow, everyone, ^-^.


    My boyfriend GM's our game, in which I play a Scoundrel. Unfortunately, my character is on Hiatus, as I've moved. But, I digress.

    We have a group chock full of Jedi (Padawans) and Force Adepts. I was the only Scoundrel (human female no less! Hahah! GO HUMANS), and thus I had to do the dirty work. Like opening boxes illegally.

    Anyway, as I was doing said job, we got caught. Or rather, one of the Padawans and the force Adept got caught. I was hiding behind a crate and the fellow Padawan was with me. The former were posing... like statues. It didn't last and we were chased from one train car to the next. It was quite a ride, as the train cars were being blown up behind us!

    I had a character who made a deal with a crime lord in mos isley to deliver a small shipment of spice. Well the character wanted to be good so he turned the spice over to the authorities and went to the crimlord and said a rival group took it, hoping to cause the bad guys to fight. Basically a good idea well its Mos Isley the authorities worked for the crime lord when the character tried to play his false story he was caught, so thinking quick ( he had some regular grenades and 1 thermal) he threw a grenade at crime lord hoping to kill him and cause chaos, Oh by the way this is on borad the crashed luxury liner you see in the movies turned to casino. Well he killed the crime lord but turned out wasnt real one it was a look alike so no chaos he was chased thru casino trowing grenades all over the place killing many, he escaped in elevators to the basement which also worked as a garage for cars and power supply room then he got a real good idea throw the thermal detanator in the room with the power generator, on the next door over was a sign saying entrance to fuel storage, i was playing that the ship still had some fuel in its storage area the crime lord used it to fuel his power generators the engines to the ship are still attached you can see this in the movies. And he knew this he was thinking at one point of salvaging the ship so did some research, well the detinator goes off blows power then the fuel storage so he kills the crime lord most of his henchmen and around 2000 civilians in the casino and thought he would get a reward from local authorities when he proudly said he was the one who did the act. I sent the local cops after him and he told the party who had no idea of anything else that had happened no of it, that they were trying to blame the whole thing on him, so got party to help him escape killing numerous cops and some civilians while trying to get off planet they were all throwing what grenades they had left now, they get to the ship and see people all around it assume they are undercover cops and kill them ( they were the ground crew the characters had hired to overhaul their ship) jumped into the ship shoot down the 2 local ties got to their jump point and then found out they had no hyperdirves they had been removed because the characters wanted them upgraded. Charatcers all died when a system patrol ship showed up chased them thru the system for a few days then characters tried to fight it out and lost their ship was fighter scale the system patrol was capital they had an YT-1310 the patrol craft was a IPV boat, thru out this whole time the bad guy in the group had everyone else thinking they were being set up (we played the first part in the next room ) he almost got his butt beat for real when they found out I told them everything needless to say the next 2 games we played his character died a few time of mysterious accidents.

    I'd say the worst thing I've done /to/ my character is have his father kill his mother then try to kill him. When that doesn't work, the father kidnaps his son's children to entice the son to come and get killed.
    ^^
    Don't you love being the omnipotent author of your charries' lives?

    Ooo... in another one my Jedi character who's fairly short, has short white hair, and no beard, got his hair died purple with plumeria-smelling dye, and was challenged to a drinking game.
    It ended with him calling Adi Gallia a "hot chick," then passing out.

    I played a campaign set about 200 years before the battle of naboo I was a trainee sith and as my final test I was sent to kill a jedi master. I thought I will have no problems here so I tracked him and attacked and I got my arse kicked I barley managed to escape. So now the jedi master is making his way through the streets of couracant at pace to reveal that he has been attacked by a sith ( I had unwisely mocked the jedi pre duel and revealed that I was a sith and also let him on our plans bond villian style) however I used my swoop to get ahead of the jedi, I went into a building and killed a mother and stole her baby then i planted loads of explosives on the baby and proceeded to slice and dice civilians who foolishly tried to reclaim the baby with that I went to the top of a building and when the jedi appeared I dropped the baby of course the jedi caught the baby the explosives went off an the jedi was knocked unconscious, I then cut off the jedis legs and arms and brought him back to the sith lord. By now I believed myself to be a god so I attempted to jump the sith lord. I got my arse kicked and the sith lord knocked me unconcious & drops me in the middle of people at the babys funeral the peps proceeded to rip me limb from limb before burning me at the stake. I should have known better then to mess with Darth Ouma? Darth Dredgen was a sick puppy but he had a lot of potential.

    Well...I saved the life of one of my Jedi Comrades....(im no jedi)

    And yes that was a mistake...I KNOW he is tuning to the dark side, in his first encounter BAM 3 DSP's.

    By the way he dosen't like my character.So I will be the first to go when he goes dark.


    Oh and one of the players I GM for cast force lightning on a lvl 1 thug, The thug was in a watch tower so when the lightning missed (yes it did) EVERYONE in the base we were infiltrating saw it.

    ALL HE HAD TO DO WAS TAP THE GUY AND HE WOULD HAVE DIED!!!!

    One time I was a wookiee, and during a fight the head merc(enemy) was knocked out along with our jedi(also low on wound points). I, the only one with treat injury skill took the jedi's medpac and healed the merc(for interregation purposses) instead of the jedi. Also later I was getting a little too rough with the interregation and our level 1 noble(I, being Lv.5 soldier) knocked me out with a stun garnade, then with stun blaster, and put me in stuncuffs and placed me in the detention cell. It was crazy! :oops:

    Tirel Nadd.

    D6 System

    Ok we were playing a Game, Rise of the Empire Era. My Character was a Failed Jedi with one Dark Side Point to Start. The GM Was Running a Game where One Player was Playing the Main bad guy..."The White Tiger". At anyrate Tirel had recieved a vision that if he Defended a Jedi Healer from The White Tiger then he would be Attoned.

    During the course of the Campaign, the Player of the Healer, and I determined that Our Characters had Fallen in love with each Other. I also Gained One more Dark side Point.

    In the Final Conflict the Tiger Told Tirel how he was Going to Rape Seline and Populate the Galaxy with his children. tirel lashed out in a fit of anger. Severing the Tiger's hand. DSP # 3 I rolled a 1 on a D6

    The Tiger was like "you won't kill me you're a Jedi".. As I severed his head I said "Was a Jedi" I was then Tackled by squad of "psuedo Stormtroopers" and taken to the Imperial palace. I broke out, Incuring Several (14) more Dark side points along the Way, and Joined the Emporer as an Inquisitor.


    Fast forward to A few Weeks Before Episode IV. Tirel had been Assigned a Jedi Seer to guide him in his search for Jedi. After a HUGE Farseeing roll ( multiple 6's on the wild Die, totaling 50+) the GM determined that She had Seen the ENTIRE Events of Episodes 4-6. which she Shared with Tirel.

    We went to Tantooine and Bombarded Ben's hut from Orbit, Turning Everything within a mile Radius of it into Melted Glass. Then I had Luke Arrested. when Vader Arrived I traded Luke for Leia to Vader, And Turned Leia into Tirel's Concubine.

    That About sums it Up, I started an Alternate Timeline.

    I once played a scoundrel who was tricked into flying two jedi(PCs) to a planet occupied by the Trade Federation. I calmly informed them that if they didn't double my fee they wouldn't live to regret it. The Jedi and the other five people in the party laugh me off saying that they can easily overpower me if I try anything. I then proceed to the cockpit of my ship, seal the cockpit, and proceed to depressurize the entire ship with the exception of the cockpit. I killed seven other players with the press of a button.

    We had a guy try that on us once. He popped open the cargo bay doors. Our Consular got an awsome roll on his move object and held the air in with the Force. As the other Guardian and I ran to the cockpit. I can imagine the look on the pilot's face when he pressed the button began to chuckle, then a yellow blade pokes through the door beside him.

    We shot up a cantina, robbed it, and blew out of there. The police caught up with us at the height of our campaign, detained us for about 30 secs, lifted us up and then had us shot.

    We were in the Geonosian catacombs, looking for insurrectionists who had been stirring a Geonosian uprising against the Republic garrison on the planet. Eventually we found a meeting room where the Seppies were gathered. One of our Jedi goes to negotiate with them, instructing the rest of the squad (who wanted to simply blast in there) to wait behind. The Wookiee and the other Jedi hatch a plan, and using the Force roll a thermal detonator into the meeting room. The negotiating Jedi notices it, and uses Force push to fling it away from the Separatists. He rolls a sickeningly high check, pushes the grenade through the air, it hits the wall, rebounds back towards the conspirators and explodes them anyway.

    Getting out of the catacombs they are picked up by a LAAT/i gunship and learn that, following the death of their leaders, the Geonosians and Seperatists have begun their assault on the droid foundries prematurely. The mercs in the squad (it was a mixed team of Jedi and mercs) want to leave before the fighting gets too messy, after all they were only hired to investigate the uprising, not fight a battle. The Republic officer in charge of the Geonosian garrison has other ideas, however, and pulls a gun on them, trying to force them to help defend the factories. The Wookiee gets mad and lashes out at the officer, the clones aboard the gunship open fire, all hell breaks loose and we end with the gunship getting commandeered by three mercs, with the two Jedi left for dead in the Geonosian desert (they survived, in the end, however).

    I was once playing a jedi gaurdian. I had a lot of anger in me and often let it show, but I always made the "right" choice.

    Then, one day, I was gaming with four other PC's (all jedi), and we were on what was to be our final gaming session. We confronted the dark lord of the sith, who tempted me with the cliche, "give in to your anger" line, and I had to make a will check.

    I made my will check and a sigh of relief washed over my comrads. I then proceeded to cut every one of them down, with the sith lords help, of coarse. As they sat with mouths gaping, I bowed before my new master.

    "You have done well, Lord Malice," he bellowed.

    "Thank you, my master," I returned.

    It was a glorious day for the Dark side.

    Highlights from two recent Mutants and Masterminds campaigns:

    1) I was GMing a sparring match between three characters. It um...escalated when they got angry at each other, and only one ended up surviving. Collateral damage ended up wrecking most of a small harbor about them, and firing a rocket at a little girl treading water after they'd blown up her family's sailboat.

    2)Fellow player in a villain (it was more of a misguided hero mission that a true villain one, really) campaign took on an entire police force hurling lightning at them and frying them all singlehandedly outside of a bar. My character remained in the bar, calmly drinking whisky.

    3) I tortured an old woman. I fired bullets into all four appendages as she tried to escape...one to the point where her arm fell off. I then cut off the other arm with a machette, carved her up a bit with it, and finally gave up and shot her in the head. This wasn't your average old woman, as you can probably guess. A superly skilled government agent. Ah well.

    Hmmm, I love Mutants & Masterminds.

    Last Christmas I GMed a "Cyberpunk meets Wild C.A.T.S." series and one of the characters, loosely based upon that guy from "Neuromancer" who had a holographic system implanted, loved using his Illusion power to kill bystanders.

    Last night, I was in a galactic ultramarket on Coruscant in the Rise of the Empire era. I was a human character named Korraj Rehpaght, a sort of misguided-hero type. You see, his wife was brutally raped, mutilated, then shot up by a band of mercenaries from Denon, and they captured his sixteen year old daughter. They somehow always know precisely where my PC is, at any given time. Every Monday morning, at 9:30, they send him a video of her being raped, and licked, and the usual. With each video is a list of instructions to go somewhere, find something, and mail it to them. These scavenger hunts are getting more and more ridiculous, with my fellow players sitting around all day, thumbing through catalogs, looking for items.

    My PC has discovered the Force, and, in desperation, is rushing through training to learn how to locate his daughter through the Force. He turned sorta half-psychotic, and snapped at last. He was asked, while on Almania, to travel to Coruscant and buy twelve conduit worm patties. I began to suspect that my friends really needed to be checked into some kind of psychiatric ward. Anyway, after going through seventeen different ultramarts that were out of conduit worm patties, I finally went to A&P, which stands for Anakin and Palpatine. After frantically searching the dried meat counter, I was told by the butcher that they were somewhere else in the store.

    Needless to say, I had gone crazy, and was hunting down an employee. I asked him where the conduit worm patties were, and he said, "No sir, I'm afraid we cant sell you those without a legal li-"

    That was as far as he got. I used Force Grip, and rolled a 20. This is what the GM (a trained actor) said: "As the sheer power of the dark side flows through your veins, you concentrate on that employee... his smug face... his little girlee-man expression... But worst is his breath... Ah, it stinks.... In a sudden compulsive urge, you close your hand into a fist... Gouts of blood spurt forth from his mouth and nose as his lungs are suddenly crushed by your power. He lays on the tiled ground in a bloody heap, sobbing and twitching."

    But... am I done yet? Hell no. I decide to keep my guy crazy for a few more turns, and use Force Grip on his... manly area. My roll... a 19. Since the girls were out for the weekend, the GM was very explicit. "As his prostrate form sits there, his testicles suddenly implode, spraying a warm, white liquid over his bloody body."

    Still not done. I tell the GM that I want to use one last Force Grip... on his head. I roll... a 1. This isn't neccesarily a bad thing. Quoth the GM: "Your own rage and hatred distract you, and your concentration is ruined. Instead of pulling from the inside, you pull from the outside, causing his head to spontaneously erupt in a shower of blood and brain tissue. On piece of his cerebrum lands on the head of an old lady. She faints forward onto her grav-shopping cart. It is shoved forward, and smashed into the freezers that are full of steam and crabs. The heat from the minirepulsorlift in the cart burns off the insulation of the wires in the freezer, causing a large explosion that hurled crab claws at the many shoppers, impaling numerous of them to walls. One claw spears a fire extinguisher, the opening of which makes the servers thing a fire has broken out, engaging the sprinkler system. All the water hits a bunch a wires, creating a massive electrical fire." My character gets out by then, and hijacks an air bus with a greyish banana he stole on the way out, pretending it's a blaster. "As the bus pulls away, the fire hits the gas lines that circle the building, shattering the walls of the floor. The countless floors above fall twelve feet down. Needless to say, not all fell evenly. The building topples over, into another tower, and they fall over into a populatedpark area, where millions are now resting leisurely. Suddenly, screaming fills the air as the two mile high buildings are about to crush them all. Some run. Some panic. Some just stand and gape at the awing sight."

    Just after the emperor died, My friends' characters became sith lords, found all the heroes (luke, leia, lando, etc.) and either killed them, made them loyal, or made them their concubines. Then they had little sith children with leia.

    Gotta love alternate timelines
