Several years ago, I ran an RPG website (Jade’s Roleplaying Pages) and one of the most heavily hit pages were those that list funny quotes that happened during game sessions.

red-quote-bubbleWell, I’m bringing that back. Eventually, there’ll be a website and quote pages back up. In the meantime, I’m going to start posting a few game quotes each week. These are actual quotes from real game sessions and I’m breaking them down by game system, ’cause some of them are only funny if you know the system referenced.

So here’s this weeks entries:

“Roll some dice and dazzle me with your Dex.”

“You know — you’re smarter than most of the characters you play.”

  1. I’m impressed by your record-keeping / memory, as well as the variety of campaigns you’ve been involved in (as a multi-campaign GM myself). I wish I remembered quotes like that… I know they happened. I remember the laughs.

    • @siskoid – I have used a large number of game system. But as far as the memory… Well, I just write them down and they occur 😉
