Best Quote

In our recent game (last weekend), there were NUMEROUS awesome quotes and player interactions. I wish I had a photographic memory (or a recorder), because most of them have (even this recently) fled my mind. Horatio's speech was one such memorable moment- the speech that lured his enemy into a trap and kept them there. He gets kudos for first trying to get inside the psyche of his enemy before carefully tailoring the most offensive speech possible to provoke them (no, not offensive words, just offensive implications). Whatever I remember of it, however, couldn't do justice to this work of prose. Just trust me on this, it was great.

That having been said, I think that probably the best quote was from Bob the Tusken Jedi. The team was having an intense discussion with rival (and rogue) agent Corewatch. The latter was dismissing the Charon as a real threat to the Republic- citing the fact that he had "read reports" on the matter, and the "numbers didn't support" the threat the players felt from the arachnids. To this, Bob replied vehemently. "You read report? Good. Bob not read report. Bob WRITE report." THAT brought a cheer from the rest of the players and shut Corewatch up. Awesome.

If any of my players remember any of the other awesome quotes of the adventure, please post them up in comments. My memory sucks. So.. wait, what am I even doing here?... duhh....


  1. This isn't really a quote but it was kinda funny. So the party is working its way through the Sith Academy on Korriban, following the trail of destruction that Corewatch and his party had left. It's dark, it's quiet. There are dead bodies strewn all over the place. The dark side of the Force is almost palpable even to the non-Force users. Tensions are high, and everyone is expecting trouble. So Bob decides to listen to the ground to see if he can hear anything through the stone floor. Everyone is being really quiet while Bob is listening, when suddenly Wrex (Oman's Basilisk war droid, trickster that he is) stomps his large, metal foot on the ground as hard as he can, scaring the crap out of everyone in the party. Wrex thought it was hilarious.

  2. Wrex (eying everyone as they shoot him dagger-like looks): "What?! It was funny!"
