Hey I have +10 to grapple, let me take you down.

I'm an Orc. Do you have any Orc in you? Would you like some?

That beautiful +2 full plate would look great in a heap next to my bed.

So, do you want to save me a scrying spell?

Want to see how much fun we can have with my pendant of water-breathing?

Hey I'm looking for treasure, Can I look around in your chest?

Do you want to make use of that +5 to animal handling?

Ha ha! And the best pickup line of all time:

"Charm person."

(Or "Charm Monster" if you're into that.)

Mine aren't as good!! I'll think up more later.

You must have taken improved trip, because I just fell for you.
Are you a bard? Because you have me fascinated.
I hope you have ranks in heal, because you take my breath away.
[font=Century Gothic]That is it!! Roll for initiative.
I hope you like pain.[/font]

This is no ale belly, it's the fuel tank for the love machine

Do you have a boyfriend? [No] Want one? [Yes] Well, when you want a MANfriend, come and talk to me.

Hi, the voices in my head told me to come over and talk to you.

The elf and I have a bet that you won't take off your tunic in a public place.

Stand back, I'm an acolyte. You go get a cleric, I'll loosen her clothes.

Hmm, I actually don't have any DnD chat up lines, so how about "Famous Last Words" instead?

Player:I quickly shove everything I can in my pockets, including the broken clock, and run outside!
GM: Okay...(confused)What broken clock?
Player: The one you said was counting backwards.

Im invincib.................

Player: I look out the window
DM: You see clouds beneath the window.
Player: I jump out the window.
DM: Make a new character.
Player: WHAT!?! I thought it was an illusion.
DM: No, it's a flying castle. Make a new character.

"Oh don't worry. The poisonous ones have orange stripes."

DM: The baslisk stares at you
PC: I challenge him by staring right in to his eyes

DM: Ok, I need everyone's dice so I can roll for damage.

"I wonder what would happen if I poked him..."

PC1: Use Spirit Strike on it!
PC2: But Spirit Strike only works on supernatural creatures!
PC1: Are you telling me a talking dog isn't supernatural??

"Everyone knows that dragons breathe fire...I use my protection from fire spell, and walk up to the green drag..."

"I disbelieve."

P1: Hey! We need a healer over here.
P2: He is the healer.

"I throw my sword at it!"

"I attempt to make a Move Silently check in full plate."
"Oooo shiny thing!"

For those of you who haven't seen this...

Let us cast our minds back to the early days of Fantasy Role Playing, back when ye Dread Gygax was loose upon the land. Funny how humor and horror can start out so alike. Let us go still earlier (yes, it is permitted to breathe sighs of relief) to the days before Gygax (and the courts) thought that he owned FRP. In the early seventies, Ed Whitchurch ran "his game," and one of the participants was Eric Sorenson, a veritable giant of a man. This story is essentially true: I know both Ed and Eric, and neither denies it (although Eric, for reasons that will become apparent, never repeats it either). If my telling of it does not match the actual events precisely, it is because I've heard it many different ways depending on how much of what type of intoxicants Ed had taken recently.

The gist of it is that Eric, well, you need a bit more about Eric, or else I won't fill quota. Eric comes quite close to being a computer. When he games, he methodically considers each possibility before choosing his preferred option. If given time, he will invariably pick the optimum solution. It has been known to take weeks. He is otherwise in all respects a superior gamer, and I've spent many happy hours competing with and against him, as long as he is given enough time.

So, Eric was playing a Neutral Paladin (why should only Lawful Good religions get to have holy warriors was the thinking) in Ed's game. He even had a holy sword, which fought well, and did all those things holy swords are supposed to do, including detect good (random die roll; it could have detected evil). He was on some lord's lands when the following exchange occurred:

ED: You see a well groomed garden. In the middle, on a small hill, you see a gazebo.

ERIC: A gazebo? What color is it?

ED: (Pause) It's white, Eric.

ERIC: How far away is it?

ED: About fifty yards.

ERIC: How big is it?

ED: (Pause) It's about thirty feet across, fifteen feet high, with a pointed top.

ERIC: I use my sword to detect good on it.

ED: It's not good, Eric. It's a gazebo!

ERIC: (Pause) I call out to it.

ED: It won't answer. It's a gazebo!

ERIC: (Pause) I sheathe my sword and draw my bow and arrows. Does it respond in any way?

ED: No, Eric, it's a gazebo!

ERIC: I shoot it with my bow (roll to hit). What happened?

ED: There is now a gazebo with an arrow sticking out of it.

ERIC: (Pause) Wasn't it wounded?

ED: Of course not, Eric! It's a gazebo!

ERIC: (Whimper) But that was a plus three arrow!

ED: It's a gazebo, Eric, a gazebo! If you really want to try to destroy it, you could try to chop it with an axe, I suppose, or you could try to burn it, but I don't know why anybody would even try. It's a *)@#! gazebo!

ERIC: (Long pause. He has no axe or fire spells.) I run away.

ED: (Thoroughly frustrated) It's too late. You've woken up the gazebo, and it catches you and eats you.

ERIC: (Reaching for his dice) Maybe I'll roll up a fire-using mage so I can avenge my Paladin.

At this point, the increasingly amused fellow party members restored a modicum of order by explaining what a gazebo is. It is solely an afterthought, of course, but Eric is doubly lucky that the gazebo was not situated on a grassy gnoll...

"I know, lets flank him!"

(maybe Talon will elaborate - sorry for the intrusion)

Nooooooooooooooooooo.......

hehehe.. three of us needed to get to something behind this massive Ice Golem and Aquilo says "I know! Lets flank him!" so my ranger and another fighter took a side and Aquilo's character took the middle and slid right between his legs (it was an ice floor) while the Golem proceeded to chop us into itty bitty bits.. We died.. he didn't!

Never trust the words "lets flank him"
