On a scale from one to ten, how Batman are you right now?

These are a collection of more quotes from 21 June 2011's Changeling: The Dreaming roleplaying session at Chimera. We just saved them for a rainy day, such as, when we've not had a session that week. Like this Tuesday. GM was missing, so we ended up playing some Munchkin (The Good, The Bad and the Munchkin to be precise) in store before calling it an early night. Quotes could probably be salvaged, but this is more fun.

And an update!

Last week's session has been completed now, so please see If we survive this, I’m buying you an Inspector Clouseau box set for new/updated stuff, which comes after this bit:

“If the phone’s switched off, it won’t find it.”
“But that’s not how it works in the movies!”

Also, here's a pic of what we obviously look like now:

Tomorrow, the GM is away, and what we might be up to in his absence ... no one knows.

If we survive this, I’m buying you an Inspector Clouseau box set

So, there was beanstalk-climbing, window-crashing and an assortment of madness. Alysiana's actress friend found at the end of last week ended up dead - we didn't reach her in time. However, in a nearby hotel, we found the man who Finn saw in a vision, killing his friend and band member, and most likely killing this poor woman too. So we clobbered him. Then we also came across his female accomplice and went a-chasin'. And we discovered we've got a lot of things in common with the NCIS team.

You are a clockwork racist!

Because we were one player down and the GM was otherwise engaged too, we decided to try playing a game that was thought up during last week’s Changeling session. Using a simplified version of the 6d6 system, we set out with just one card each: our names. Two players, one GM, and a stack of roleplaying cards. And then … general mayhem? Surely you know what we’re like by now …

Marv was on a quest to find his missing brother - who might or might not be called Gordon, and Bingo was a pirate wannabe cop married to an equally missing stripper of a wife who might or might not have been a Nazi. And both were chased by the maffia. So yeah.

It’s just another vorpal Monday!

We’re still in Mansfield and … well, we had a rummage through a scary-looking house, Finn drank beer, we found a magic circle and a knife, helped ourselves to some of the books, Alysiana had traumatic flashbacks and later found someone who called her Alice and who claimed to know her. And then the police showed up …

Meanwhile, we’ve also sung The Hero of Canton with the next table (again), had a “how many wasabi peanuts can you eat at the same time?” challenges, reached new lows of taste and decency and discovered how much Twiglets look like poo. Sorry for the delay. Hopefully we can make up for it by this being a really long post!

I’ll take gay Zorro over KKK man any day

Date: 2 July 2011
Game: Mutants & Masterminds
Place: GM’s home

Sometimes we also meet outside of our favourite gaming store. Here's a session of Mutants & Masterminds, where the group was twice the size (12). It's set in the early 1960s, albeit with a slightly different way of getting there. The group of superheroes - and a pizza delivery guy who happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time (or he has UNFATHOMABLE superpowers!) and a sidekick wannabe - were out to save the world. With the help of a giant duck dragon.
