I only played Paranoia long ago (I kind of want to check out XP), but I liked this story about one game. (actually there are a couple there)

I had a pretty amusing experience with D&D last weekend. Our DM decided to start a little side campaign we could play when anyone couldn't make it for the regular meeting (since our group is only three people plus the DM if anyone can't make it we pretty much have to cancel). So, since the DM's girlfriend couldn't make it last weekend my the two of us made our characters for the side campaign. I was making a Psychic Warrior, and made some joke about stabbing people and then setting them on fire, so once I get my weapon the DM's like, ok your axe can have flames as long as they don't do any damage. Later he ammended that to let the flames be able to ignite things. Like oil. :twisted:

Meanwhile, my friend's creating a Sword Sage, and apparently he has some move that will also set enemies on fire when he stabs them. He also has a stance that makes him nearly immune to fire while he's in it. Once we get started, we're fighting some goblins and setting them on fire, then has me set him on fire, and then he runs up to a cluster of hobgoblins and starts busting oil balloons in their faces (damaging himself, but killing the hobgoblins. With FIRE).

So basically (without any real planning) both our characters turned out to be insane, introverted piromaniacs. Who says D&D can't be like real life. :lol:

I needed a series of weird encounters for my BESM game... The players are around level 10 right now (think D&D 12-18 based on build)... The first encounter is simple enough... 10 spec-op dwarven knights (wearing fortified full plate and monkey-grip wielding Large keen waraxes / halbreds) that drop AOE paralyzing poison when they die, but somehow I also came up with 2 land sharks with 12 Hit Die, an Ice-elemental template, and the Evil Aura of an evil arch-dragon.

I'm thinking they won't see any of this coming at all - and it'll probably keep them from realizing that they're carrying a plague-bomb into a major city for an extremely charismatic enemy.

I'm trying to get the whole being a mean GM thing down - I think I need more practice.

The goal isn't to be mean to your players, it's to be evil. If you're just mean to your players, that's not enjoyable. But when you're evil, everyone has fun!

I meant it more as a counter-point to "nice," but i suppose my word choice betrayed my intent. Evil is fun - it's difficult in a system that's so broken as this one is... i pretty much only have save or die shit at my disposal - half my players laugh at damage that isn't in the 60+ range and the other half die from that in 1 hit - the campaign is turning more ability-drain focused though... PCs love their dark (necromancers/liches/etc.) nemesis.

Ok - so, the game is progressing in a fun direction, but i kinda feel i'm screwing my players over with the loots i give them, so i'm coming up with interesting loot that will be fun if they decide to use it. By interesting, i'm going for more funny themed weapons as jokes.

Ness Bat - Thundering, Flaming Burst, Earthbound Greatclub

Any other suggestions?

The u-tube sword of doom. It's low quality and it's really really hard to get your timing right when using it, however for some reason many people value it highly and it can sell for far more than you'd think it's worth.

The magical sword fence. Most D&D worlds have such heavy concentrations of magic that it's easy to get dozens of +1 swords. So a retired adventurer is left to wonder what to do with them all. How about make a nice picket fence with em?

The bag of boners. You probably don't want to stick your hand in the bag and you definately don't want to question what that liquid dripping out of it is. Guaranteed source of protein though and for the adventure far from civilization with limited food supplies that might be important.

The portable goats hole. Just grab both sides and pull wide open. Basically equal to a portable hole.

Speaking of portability, try giving the portable hoe
