From the game I am currently GMing (a word which hear means, making up as I go along with a small amount of preparation) which is based on the steam punkish, faux Victorian with monsters world of The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray by Chris Wooding.
Inspector Aberlaine (played by Svend): I was called here on the count of massive amounts of blood not being on the inside of coppers anymore. We don’t like that sort of thing down at the station.
Carbot (new partner to Aberlaine played by Steve): I’ve read your case files, they’re very impressive. Good syntax.
Aberlaine: Carbot? You are a tool.
Carbot: I am YOUR tool, sir!
Out of Character remarks:
(on the editor of the scientific journal under investigation…)
Svend: I’m taking a letter to the editor. The letter is “KAPOW!”
Seraph: That’s five letters!
Jenni: That’s not a letter of the alphabet!
Svend: It’s a letter of MY alphabet!
uhm, and then there’s Peculiar Frank. I don’t think Elric meant to unleash this particular facet of Seraph’s personality but when he named a source he was chasing up called Peculiar Frank it really….did something. This is what I managed to get down between falling off my chair laughing at Peculiar Frank’s second scene.
Peculiar Frank lives in the rafters of the Three Cripples Inn. His area is decorated Pirate Fashion, but lately he’s been getting a bit paranoid.
“I know how to treat a lady, I does. I read a book on the High Seas. It was a great book it was. Had pictures.
I’ve found out a terrible thing! Pelicans, they can eat twice their weight in squid! But they don’t know it. So don’t tell them! The squid will make a petition to the privy council, and then where would we be? In the Old Quarter with the wolves, yes. So don’t tell the pelicans.
I was visited by a spider. He told me to tell you this rhyme or he’ll burrow into my spine and I’d rather my spine not be burrowed into, so here’s the rhyme…
He sails across the Thames
with his giant black wings
using them as metaphorical……..paddles.
I’m not a fan of the spiders. They’re good at whist. Too good. I owe them a good twenty guineas, but they don’t know it y’see. They don’t really know what twenty guineas is worth.
Your friend. She is mysteriously quiet. Scares her I think I do.”
Good one Seraph, brilliant work.
I think I’m ready to run the last session (or two sessions) of this game now. There have been many more awesome moments than what I have written above, but it’s been tough trying to run a decent mystery so I’ve had my hands full most of the time. I have not enough moments to record the cool.
