This is as though you lifted it directly from the type of game sessions we sometimes have. Not the scenario itself, but the just the sort of things my players would say before I tell them the hound with glittering eyes they are preparing to obliterate is merely an ornate statue. The real hound with glittering eyes is standing behind them.

From recent playtesting of the old Crane Wing feat to see if it's actually as much a problem as sold...

Me: Jerk who is GMing this group. Insisted on a PG13 game.

Me: ... and then he shouts he will destroy you in the name of Crom.
Fighter: Seriously? You're throwing Conan the Barbarian at us?
Me: Are you saying that's not challenging enough?
Fighter: I could take him in my sleep, naked, without Crane Wing!
Me: ... fine. You're facing Conan, who is dual-wielding Conan-chucks.
Rogue: Conan-chucks?
Me: Yes. Conan-chucks. Each one is two Conan the Barbarians, connected by a chain, and each also dual-wields Conan the Barbarians.
Fighter: *rolls a d20* I successfully *&$% my pants in fear.

Many years ago I was playing a Dwarf with very poor mastery of languages other than dwarven. None of the other party members understood my language so my communication with them was limmited.

Eventually our adventures lead us into a room with a single locked door. My dwarf spotted the lock on the door and pointed to it. Lacking the correct words to explain himself he did so in the most effective means at his disposal.

"Shut," he said.

One of his companions looked at him dodly and then replied "yes."

"Shut," he repeated, pointing to the door once more.

"Yes," came the reply, "the door is shut."

My poor little dwarf stood there, his face twisting in consternation. "Shut be not" he eventually managed.

This earned him a few baffled looks and he was told that actually the door was very shut. After a few moment true inspiration struck.

"Go we must with foot and foot!"

The bombastic measure in which this line was delivered combined with the exaggerated marching actions caused the whole table to collapse in peels of laughter. The phrase has since passed down into gaming legend in my area along with many others.

Once upon a time in Feldgrau there were a Mystic Theurge of Groetus and an Inquisitor of Cayden Cailean.
After a huge battle where the whimsical MT placed a Stone Call over the group just because she didn't care to calculate the correct area for the spell ("come on, it's just 2d6 after all, it won't hurt much"), the Inquisitor grudgingly consents to cast a CMW on said MT with this sarcastic remark: "may Cayden reward you for your smart contribution to the group's efforts" (meaning: "now see what happens when you mess with your friends in the middle of a fight!").

Player rolls the dice for the CMW.

Two eights.

A few seconds of silence.
"Cayden, you DO have a wicked sense of humour."
"That, or he's drunk."

Same Inquisitor, different battle.

The Magus is in very bad shape, the Inquisitor (who has the travel domain and the eight level power Dimensional Hop) is trying to take him away but has failed her last four concentration checks.
The player of the inquisitor is using an automatic dice roller on her smartphone.
Fifth attempt, needs a 14, rolls a 4.
Sixth attempt, the magus' player begs "would you kindly use a REAL die for once???"
Inquisitor player rolls a REAL die. Gets a 13. Fails for one.

The bard: "well, that's even WORSE."

The first time I played a druid I had the 'original' idea to make my druid a loopy meelee artist. I channeled every ounce of my repressed dingbat self into this character.

There were many quotes that evening that are still referenced. My personal favorite was in response to the gm asking for AC. I said "My AC or my character's AC?"

About ten minutes later she died while crossing a log... it was an amusing evening.

Playing our bi-weekly Runelords game this past Saturday. At one point our group is mounted and comes across a skirmish line of hill giants throwing rocks at us. My level 11 ninja rides up on her mount, dismounts, and uses Invisible Blade for greater invisibility. I then execute a full attack on one of the hill giants.

On the giant's turn, it can't find me so it attacks the horse, 1-shotting it. It's got another attack, so the GM says it's going to swing at the square it last saw me in.

Me: Are you sure a hill giant has a high enough Int score not to beat a dead horse?

My favourite tabletop player ever, an old friend I sadly don't see so much of any more, was full of these. Mostly because he went for a sort of method-acing style of playing a character when it came to intelligence score, and... I'm not entirely sure whether he did it on purpose or not.

Case in point, I (as DM) introduced the group to a beautiful moonlit village, heavy on the spoken purple prose as they looked to be there for a while. When I'd finished setting the scene, he decided to speak in character (a half-orc with a terrifyingly low intelligence score, back when I allowed min-maxing)...

'Well I don't know about you guys,'/b] he says with a completely straight face, [b]'but I want to find out more about that weird shining circle in the sky'.

Bless him... he'd only been half-listening, and was genuinely talking about the moon without realizing it.

The party spent a lot of time from that point onwards explaining to him, in character, what things like 'water', 'mountains' and 'weapons' were.

Nice guy though - he took the ribbing with a smile...

Kingmaker. My guy has a GM-approved variant drawback of the "Headstrong" one, renamed "Issues".

Spoiler:
Any pro-fey or sexuality argument, and he's shaken for about an hour or until he gets some catharsis.

Also, at least two other players are ones who really love that children's cartoon show that I don't, and love to always resort to violence because murder is friendly, right?

So we're underground, exploring the lair of minor fey. Everyone starts arguing over what we should be doing, which way we should go, and gunslinger draws his exploding fireworks weapon on a team-mate; she extends her claws at him; the catfolk draws his bow, and soon almost everyone has a weapon drawn with threats being made.

GM: "In a Mexican Standoff, the winner is the one who does splash damage."
They all turn to look at my alchemist, who then has a panic attack.

Later:
One Guy: "I Detect magic!"
Other Guy (cheekily): "You only detect the friendship!"
Me (mildly annoyed): "Since we all hate and mistrust each other, you find nothing."

Our dwarf paladin is unconscious, on fire, and dying. It's just not his day. My Oracle is trying to reach him to put him out and heal him.

"I'm approaching the flaming dwarf...which, by the way, is also a really excellent pub..."

I heal him with a crit success.

GM: That was well done!

Me: Really? I think he was medium rare, at most.

He retained the name "the Flaming Dwarf" for the rest of the session, and possibly will for the rest of the campaign.

In my next work of Pathfinder fiction, I'm hoping to use the Flaming Dwarf pub - its sign would have to be a ginger dwarf with stylized flames for his hair and beard.

The GM is distracted and so we are chatting about the current situation out of character. Player B is infamous for her verbal slip-ups, and watches a lot of How I Met Your Mother.

Player A: You know, this kinda reminds of the trailer for the new How to Train Your Dragon movie.

Player B: Oh, yeah, I just watched How I Met Your Dragon recently.

(Pause as she realizes what she said)

Player B: Dangit! I always do that...

GM (coming back into the room): This sounds wonderfully off topic.

Player B: We were talking about How to Train Your Mother.

GM as NPC "I can be useful! I see now the error of my ways. I will embrace your faith, I can give you..."
Cleric (clearly disgusted) "from you, I don't even want the Experience Points." everyone laughs.
GM "so..."
Cleric "I just punch him."

So this literally JUST happened.

One of the guys in our group is into Transformers, so we're doing a rules-light one-shot where we're all new-born ones (our own characters). We're the last generation of Cybertronians and have just been picked up by Decepticons trying to make us join their cause.

We're in the cell, and Megatron comes in to try and recruit us.

MEGATRON: Hello, young sparks.
Character: How's it going?
MEGATRON: Good.

And then we all cracked up because the ultimate evil of the Transformers universe, the BBEG of the entire game world, just said his day was going good.


I dont have any of these, but one of my GMs gives extra experience points if we do any of these.

I'm playing in weird mash up of Call of Cthulhu d20 and Vampire the Masquerade with a tiny bit of Pathfinder thrown in (strangely, it works). Last night an old friend made his first trip back down to our neck of the woods to game in a couple of years. He had last night's best quote:

"It was a long, weird day. And all I remember is getting licked in the face by a three eyed Brit."

Scarab Sages

The best one liner I had was a combination of in and out of character events. As a teenager, I had frequent nosebleeds for a year or so. It was caused by a thin membrane from a growth spurt. Ah the awkward years.

Anyway, it was 20 years ago, we were playing first or second edition and we encounter an otyugh den. As the DM finished describing the scene including the stench in detail, my nose started bleeding. I said "Damn, it's smells so bad it made my nose bleed!" as I was reaching for a tissue to stop it.

The entire table burst out laughing.

as we are going back in time... One GM was a cross-country runner and somewhat spastically physical. Matt used to bang his fists the table (bang!) when he rolled poorly making everyone's dice jump, and of course leaned back against the wall behind him. The table and chairs were modular 1980 oak office furniture with sliders...
So during a game, he rolls poorly while leaning back, strikes forcefully - bang!, then following newton's third law his head hits the back wall, where he flexes to supine momentarily to roll forward... and the chair rolls quickly forward. He and the chair continue and he hits his forehead and arms on the table knocking the GM screen over. He yells, expletive deleted!, dice fly and he flips up, the chair rolls back and he hits his head on the back wall (again), his arms shoot up, the chair base shoots forward as the chair continues to rotate back depositing him on the floor and under the table! Everyone was amazed at the keystone cops routine they just witnessed and then during the pause of stunned silence from under the table, "Expletive Deleted! I failed my save again! I hate my dice! ... Ohh... yeah that kinda hurt... I'm okay". Where everyone started to act helping and laughing...

This was a while back, put in spoiler form for appropriateness sake.

:
I was playing a Male Tiefling Rogue who had a frenemy-style relationship with the Male Catfolk Ranger. We enter a town, and the ranger heads to the temple and grabs a vial of holy water. He then ties it to his boot and kicks me in the jimmies. After we calculate the ensuing nonlethal damage and the nauseation wears off on my character, I ask if the holy water does anything worse to me, since I'm part-Infernal on my dad's side IC. The GM informs me that my jimmies harmlessly ignite in a burst of fire, to which my rogue tells the ranger in-game: "Great, now you gave me Divine Gonorrhea." We resumed playing about 2 min. later.

One player had his character die in the last session, my character (an inquisitor of Sarenrae) along with another players character (a cleric of Zon-kuthon) come across his replacement character tied to a spit by a couple of hill giants who are close by having a siesta.

I suggest we save him as we're split off from the rest of our group and a third person would give us safety in numbers and help us regroup.

The cleric looks at the two giants, "Do we really need to save him?"

Minor chuckles emanate from those at the table, followed by the fourth player (whose character wasn't there) turning to the first and asking,

"So do you have another character concept?"

A couple of minutes later once we finished laughing battle was joined, my inquisitor dropped one giant is two rounds due to some lucky dice rolls, but even with the help of the other two we almost lost to the second giant. In fact it did manage to drop the new character into negatives, soliciting more comments, and laughter, about new character concepts.

You know how in Pathfinder Society, you can pick a profession/craft/perform skill and assign it as your day job, and how it doesn't really impact play, but at the end of the session you get bonus gold for having done your day job?

Okay, so last night, The Bastard, our bad-ass magus who wanted to kill everything first and ask questions later, says yes, he has a day job, and rolls for his bonus gold. Someone says, "What's your day job?"

He says, "Midwife."

Three cheers for the sick and twisted. :)

I have a pile of these, but here's one I still remember from about 7 years ago.

Prologue: So there's a half-orc (3.5) in the party being played by my friend Ed. He's about 7'0" tall has around 22 strength and somewhere around 5 intelligence. Yeah, he's that guy. His name is Goober and he decided to buy a guard dog also named Goober. So we borrow some horses from a local stable so we can go to the mountains to [quest objective] for the good of the town or some nonsense. When we make it to the foot of the mountain, it becomes clear that the mountains are going to be too much for the horses so we leave the dog to guard them while we [quest objective]. When we return to the horses, there are only 2 when there was originally 3, and one of the two is dead and being gnawed on by the dog.

When we returned, the stable-hand asked what had happened to the other two horses, we told him Goober had eaten them. The stable-hand looks up to our half-orc who had this to say:

Goober: You got a problem with Goober eating horses?

We all died of laughter right there.

Stable-hand: N-no... Goober can eat whatever Goober wants...
