Ratfolk walks into a room full of cats
Gets polymorphed into a mouse
Party saves him

At the Temple "hey, our wizard got polymorphed into a rat can you turn him back?"

"Priest. Sure thing. 350 gold please Results not guaranteed. Abracadabra and....

Poof. Ratfolk appears.

"Huh. Never seen one of those only work half way. Normally they're still a mouse or they turn back..."

Played two scenarios back-to-back that had Nagaji in them, with my Nagaji Cleric (first was intended, second wasn't). At first I was like, "okay, I'm one of them, let me speak to them," but then they didn't understand me. Apparently, Nagaji NPCs speak Common (or Tien, in this case), and Nagaji, while my Cleric only had Common and Draconic. I felt so baffled and frustrated I couldn't speak with my own kind.

Apparently, I built my character with the Advanced Race Guide, which states my starting languages are Common and Draconic, but sometime later that got changed. Inner Sea Races gives Common and Nagaji, for example.

But still, a race that can't speak with its own kin is pretty funny.

Heck, I get that in real life, at the gaming table even...

Not to long ago, as we are setting up to start the game, one of the players was a last minute drop in. They don’t have their PCs with them, but they have a “copy” on their phone (the judge is ok with this). So they ask if anyone has a “scrap piece of paper” for them to keep notes on (HP and stuff)...

So I say “I’ve got a tablet you can use...”

To which they reply: “no, I actually need something physical to write on.”

So I blink and say: “Ah - a tablet like as in a pad of paper - you know, like from last century...”

Everyone at the table stops to look at me - then realize that I’m the guy at the table with the flip phone, and his character in a binder, on paper...

Yeah, some times you young'uns seem to be speaking another language...

My sister has a PC that bought a Dire Bat as a riding animal (long story there, perhaps for a different post...). She always has him show up to the VC briefing with his Bat (who is named "G'wano") and ... always has to leave him behind. Sometimes she gets to bring her bat into the start of the game, always asking if she "can bring my bat G'wano in here"), but in the end, G'wano get's left back at the stables.

But then, she finally got to use G'wano in a game. In combat even - flying around a battlefield, shooting (throwning) at the enemy Mooks. Great fun was had... and that's the point right?

Then, poor G'wano sucked up a crossbow bolt and streaked off into the darkness while she jumped off into the melee (Boots of the Cat that she calls her "jump boots" - which is extra funny as she was actually in the 101st Airborne in real life). Her character then scrambled around post combat pestering all the other PCs to heal the bat... best phrase heard in game was "Can you lay on hands on my G'wano?"

We're going to talk to this NPC alchemist and when we arrive at the shop, three thugs are there about to set fire to the shop. We have been asked to avoid killing the low level thugs if possible, because they're taken from among the kids of the oppressed population of this town even if they have been corrupted by the people we're looking to overthrow. My alchemist does not have a lot of nonlethal options in a fight unless she can poison somebody unconscious, but she does have one level of bard, even if her spells basically never work because her saves are so low. Not expecting this to work at all, I cast unnatural lust on one of the thugs, for one of the other thugs. The GM manages to roll so badly that he fails the extremely low save. He says "They're both guys, does that matter?" I say "The save's higher if they couldn't be attracted to the person I'm aiming them at, but is there any reason to believe he's straight?" The GM agrees that there's no reason to assume Thug 1 is straight, so he starts trying to kiss Thug 2. One of the other party members, who specializes in tripping, trips Thug 2, so he goes to the ground (and naturally, Thug 1 follows). Also in our party is a character based on the Disney version of Esmeralda from Hunchback of Notre Dame (with a goat as an animal companion). Esmeralda starts her fascinating performance dance and fascinates Thug 3, at which point all of the thugs are sufficiently incapacitated that we can knock them out and/or tie them up with minimal damage done, and the GM needs a couple of minutes to process the fact that he never even got to set the building on fire.

An argument on the PFS forums about the legality of tablet character sheets (the electronic ones, old man) comes up, and I point out that if its really ever a problem just copy your character quickly over to paper. There's no legal requirements for an official character sheet.

This being a hobby where we look for corner cases, what if no one has any paper?

This being the workaround that should be doable at any venue.

That week, my table colapses I go to play at the other table and.. forgot a character. Except that one... "perfectly legal character sheet..."

At a store just before a PFS scenario, I took a hard look at the Chaotic Neutral label on my kitsune aetherkineticist's character sheet. She is a Tien girl that as a failed gambler, failed thief, successful Pathfinder. I realized that overtime, she has put aside her thieving ways and become quite the friendly gal who takes pride in saving the day and helping people.

I decided with great pride to change her alignment to Chaotic Good.

Afterwards, I opened up a box of Pathfinder Battles and my eyes lit up at what I found inside.

"Cool! I got a Hellgate!"

The GM looked up at me. He said "I'm gonna need that" and immediately snatched the hellgate from my fingers.

I didn't protest. I just stared in stupefied disbelief at the horrible realization.

My party led a successful raid into Galt being semi-led by my Knight-Captain Barbarian. We needed to break a few bad people out of their prisons and then exfiltrate with them in tow.

Floating down the river we made note of when we successfully had left the borders of Galt and then I conducted a summary trial and execution for some portion of the people we had just "rescued".

OOC the party knew before play this was potentially going to happen and they were down with me taking action for the IC story arch. What we also didn't know is that the "win" condition was specifically making sure they didn't die *in* Galt. So, you know, mission accomplished all around :P

No, the funny part was the OOC element of resigning ourselves to getting a fail for story but that it still met the scenario requirements :P

Also, yes I know it was a "bad" thing, but it felt right for the character progression too :)

I recently ran a Pathfinder Society scenario that featured a penanggalen, a vampire that detaches its head and internal organs in order to fly about hunting, then has to soak its innards in vinegar to shrink them enough to fit back into its body before dawn. (Here is the mini I made for it.)

Yesterday, the PFS game I was playing ended early, but I hung around the store for a bit before leaving. Not long after we wrapped, I heard the GM at the other table drop the "soak itself in vinegar" lore on his players. It was a different scenario that used the the same monster, and two of his players had played the one I ran. For one of them, it was the very next adventure for his PC since he played mine! The groans and cursing tickled my little black heart. ;)

So, the PCs confront the BBC and ... ask him who he is. And I do get to recite the best villain line ever "I am (Redacted Name), Master of the Redacted Location name)! How can you NOT have heard of me?"

Player #1 looks at Player #2 who shrugs and looks to Player #3 (running the Skills Guy) who also shrugs... they all turn back to me and Player #3 says - "ah... missed our knowledge Local roll? Think you can help us out with a couple hints?"

I critted an Empowered Ray of Enfeeblement. 31 STR penalty. Sadly, the enemy made the Fort save, but still dropped to the floor.

Not necessarily funny, but I was quiet for a moment when I realised just how much that one spell could do.

GM'ed a module today for 3 players and a level 4 pre-gen Seoni. The player who was running Seoni most of the time has a noted joking disdain with another local player for getting kill steals with a wand of magic missile. The group was having a somewhat tough time dealing damage, and he proceeded to kill steal himself twice with Seoni's wand of magic missile. We made sure to let the other player know.

After an encounter with a nasty pair of skeletal dragons the entire party had a boatload of negative levels

My arcanist raids the druid list for spells, so they have death ward. So death ward on me, death ward on you, death ward on you, death ward on your cow... (its a griffon).

Death shows up.

"...the deathward on the cow was a bridge too far wasn't it?"

Home game, not PFS, but still share-worthy: Fighter is at 1 HP, fumbles. We use crit/fumble cards. "Deal damage to yourself." Rolls enough to be exactly at negative CON. GM ruled we could save him, because this is the s@~~tiest way to die.

Also, today: a player has a Leshy, with plant speech. They're going into a forest fire (and camping, too). They had to cry themself to sleep (gender-neutral), as they kept hearing trees yelling in pain.

In my first PFS2 game we had to disperse a crowd of protesters nonviolently, and it came to my turn. (It looked to me like it was one of those cases where you try to use a variety of skills creatively.)
"I use my geneology lore skill."
GM : "Uh, how does that possibly apply here?"
"I single out the ringleader and insult his mother - very specifically."

I also had a funny experience with that same encounter!

The GM asked "What skill will you use on the protesters?"

My dim-witted dwarf barbarian had no social skills at all and a limited number of them. However, with a plan in mind, I confidently replied "I use Stealth."

The GM stared at me for a long moment. "Explain."

"I sneak among the protesters and stands right beside the most socialite-looking one, participating in the protest by shouting the most offensive and toxic representation of their views at the top of my lungs" I then proceeded to stand up with my arms up and say things like "how dare those liberal simpletons ruin our barbaric traditions!" and "Screw the gods!"

The GM blinked. "I-I don't get it. Are you trying to intimidate the protester?"

"No," I said, "I want to stand next to the socialite so everyone to associates my toxic comments with him."

I rolled well and the socialite winced at my protesting and said "Oh jee, I just forgot I have a...party to go to," and scampered off.

"Thug interrogation" scene....

after being ambushed by mooks - one of whom was throwing Stingchucks ooc](a weapon that just makes you want to say "Eyuuu", made from humanoid heads...)[/ooc], the PCs got around to asking for information.

Three of the mooks are negative HP, but stable, and one is still able to talk, so they start with him and the standard routine...

Social PC, "So, Mook, how's it going? Looks like you guys could use a little healing - your health coverage going to handle this? you with the local Mooks-for-Hire? Anyway, who sent you to put the hurt on us?"

Mook #114, "You'se go'n ta 'ave ta talk ta da Headman."

Social PC, "and who would this boss guy be? how would we find him?"

Mook #114 - pointing at the unconscious Mook #111, "You'se go'n to 'ave to talk to da 'Head' man - da guy what had da Heads..." the guy who was throwing the stingchucks.

Social PC, "ah! yeah, now I get it... the 'Head' man!"

Mook #114, "yeah, 'e's da brains of dis job...."

So many stories over the years:

1) We Be Goblins 2: stroll up to the cabin, knock on the door, "Goblin scout cookies!"

2) An unchained rogue was doing the feint, sneak attack combo. I described the feint as "You reach into a pouch and toss a kitten onto the ground. Opponent is distracted, you stab him." That action combo caught on for months.

3) Her husband was running a Shoanti melee hunter with an earthbreaker and an ankylosaurus companion: "I'm Sledge, he's Hammer." Someone addresses him as Sledge: "No He's Sledge, I'm Hammer!" and so on. Totally roleplayed a DudeBro: "Do You even lift?" "It's Wednesday, that's leg day." In Labyrinth of the Hungry Ghosts, he found some foil, and made a hat "To protect my mind from the bad thoughts." BBEG encounter ties to Dominate him, he rolls a nat 20, not once but twice!! (That was the game my VC chose to evaluate me on for star 5)

Perhaps not the "Funniest PFS moment", but this is a "Fun game story"...

I have found that I have much more success (more fun too) "pulling players into Role Playing", and getting them to "act out their spiel" by role playing WITH them... I can remember one such game where a young lady (all of 9 year old) who until then had never talked during our games, but she went first during an Ambush by mooks in an Ally. Her Sorcerer won Initiative and so when asked by the judge what she wanted to do, she said in a very soft voice "I'll scare them away".
The exchange went something like this...

Judge: "so that would be an Intimidate skill check. So what do you say to them...?"
Sorcerer: after a bit of 'deer in the headlights' time, everyone is watching her... she says in a very small voice "I wave my knife at them and say Go Away or I'll stick you!"
Judge: "Roll your Intimidate..."
Sorcerer: "19 plus my 5 gives me a ...ah..."
Me - next in initiative and running a Bard with a great Intimidate, do a bad thing and jump right in with an Aid Another...: "and I'll aid her play (I have an auto aid on Intimidate) by pointing at the Rangers Snake animal companion and saying (change to my best "PC voice") 'see what happened to the last guy who didn't do what she told him? If I were you, I'd fade away home now... '"
Some of the other players state that they use Ready Actions in cast a fight starts... And the mooks faded away into the night on their Initiatives....

That young lady didn't remember the +2 I gave her - but she stole the line "...you should fade away home now..." and used it in later games. In fact, I'm pretty sure she must have practiced the delivery at home... In a 9 year old little girl voice. It was (IS!) creepy when she repeated it again later...

And I think her Sorcerer put ranks in Intimidate next time she leveled... and looked into the spell cause fear.

But you know what - I don't think she realized/remembered I gave her the +2 bonus...

So, I was prepping a scenario for PFS a few months ago and the scenario called for 3 or 4 dire wolves. A large figure which I don't have. So I need a substitute large figure and spot my large sharks from the Skull and Shackles set. Land Sharks! I'm good to go.

So the PCs get to the top of the rise and look down and see my proxy dire wolves (land sharks) and one of the players decides he's got to ride one. Sure, why not. He jumps off the ledge to try to land on and ride the wolf (land shark). I say, "Sounds like a jump check then a grapple check to me" -- awesome jump, horrible fail on the grapple. He lands flat on the opposite side of the wolf (land shark).

The official moment my game "jumped the shark".

I often use the spell Unnatural Lust

I might cast it on a Mook - sending him after the PC Druids Big Cat companion... SO that he scrambles over and hugs said kitty, and I might then slumber hex him...

This means that later, when he wakes up, he remembers unnaturally lustful thoughts (and actions) toward the Big Cat, just before he blacked out. Only to come to some time later, (and because we searched him while he as asleep) with his clothing in dis-array, with a happy lion sitting next to him purring.

Yah... what happens in Almas, stays in Almas...

Tonight's PFS adventure started with yet another round of Nigel, curator of the Blakros Museum, complaining about the violent, messy ways that Pathfinders have dealt with the problems that continually plague the museum. Singling out fireballs in particular.

At 7th level, it's my sorcerer Mahesh's first time in the infamous museum, but he's met Nigel before, at a Blakros family event. So he likes the guy better than most Pathfinders do, and vice versa.

Later, in Shadow Absalom, we enter the Shadow Plane's parallel to the building, where we endure a villainous monologue then get to fight.

Round one: Mahesh, to the other PCs: "Don't tell Nigel." *unleashes fireball into the first room*

Running through a scenario where there's a trap consisting of a fake horse illusion where the roof is going to collapse. My Magus and the Ranger each fail our saves, but the rest of the party is fine, so we spend several minutes trying to convince each other if the horse is fake or not. The monk in the party goes up to it to prove her point once and for all, triggers trap and "murders the horse". I've still never forgiven her. >.>

In a recent adventure with my spiritualist librarian haunted by Murk the Death Spirit...

Season 4 Spoiler:
We had to investigate a local cult. Along the way, a random level 2 commoner NPC tagged along with us as he wanted to join a cult so he can, um, "get lucky."

We all donned black robes and infiltrated the cult, pretending to be people interested in joining. As one final test of our determination, one of the cult leaders told us to choose two among us: the strongest and the weakest. The weakest will die.

The leader left the room and the GM only gave us 5 minutes to decide. The commoner volunteered to be the weakest as he felt inept compared to our heroic deeds. We cheered him up and all unanimously voted he'd be designated the strongest. However, that left us to decide who would be the weakest. The group started to argue until I finally spoke up loudly that my spiritualists's phantom, Murk the Grim Reaper, will volunteer. The GM bust out laughing.

The cult leader was skeptical, but Murk - still disguised in the black robe - gave a passionate speech about how he felt ashamed he was weak in life and wanted to serve the goddess in death instead. I felt proud of this speech, especially as I had a clever plan. Suspecting the cultists would throw Murk into the furnace, I planned to turn incorporeal, act out burning alive, and then flop to the floor, so the cultists would see nothing but a ghostly skeleton when they checked on their victim.

That didn't happen.

The cult leader took Murk and the commoner dude to another room, separating them from the party. There, Murk was forced upon his knees and the commoner was handed a ceremonial dagger. To prove his strength, the commoner guy must carve out Murk's heart as an offering to the goddess.

Um, yeah.

Nevermind the fact that Murk has no heart. As a phantom, he has DR 5/magic and slashing. One of the players raised the question "Is the ceremonial dagger magical?" It wasn't.

The GM hilariously acted what transpired next using his roommate (one of the players wearing a hoodie) in place of Murk. The commoner guy got teary eyed, closed his eyes tightly, and stabbed Murk in the chest with all his might only for the blade to go "thunk" uselessly against his sternum. The guy blinked, stabbed a few more times to no avail.

The cool and wisecracking grim reaper he is, Murk gave him some words of encouragement. "It's okay kid," he said calmly to the young man trying to kill him. "I know you're trying your best."

The guy awkwardly looked to the cult leader. "Uh, do you have a sharper dagger?"

The leader raised an eyebrow, grabbed the dagger, and stabbed Murk a few times with the same effect. With the GM performing the exact motion on his roommate, the leader grabbed Murk's hood, yanked it down, and blurted out "DA FUUUUUUH?!" as it revealed Murk's ghostly skull.

Murk would have given a witty response if not for the fact that I and the rest of the table bust out laughing.

Needless to say, all hell broke loose and thus began an epic fight that served as the highlight of the convention for me.

I unlocked a Ghoran boon, so I made a Verdant Sorcerer. I applied some GM credit to him and played him as a fresh level 2 character. Very first encounter was against a swarm of insects that dealt double damage against objects and plant creatures. I was the only one with AoE effects (Burning Hands). Guess who took 10 damage a round trying to blast that swarm?

GM reasoning was, why would the swarm be interested in eating dead stuff when there's a fresh plant in the room? That was an interesting game of tag, where Kyra spent all her actions healing me while I kept running away from the swarm (and luckily kept making my Fort saves against distraction). It was a tense situation, especially with my precious race boon on the line...

I wonder if that is the same giant squid that I rushed towards when my entire party ran the other direction... no, wait, Lucky said that he dimensioned door away, trying to bring me.

Well, of course, all we could see what a really big shadow under the water. So, as a true devotee of The Strong Man, I thought it would be a great test of my strength and skill! After all, I was able to wrassle not one, but two orca into submission up near the Crown of the World.

So, why not?

"Thorval!!!" was what I heard Lucky crying out, as the thing with all the tentacles drew me in.

Man, that was a good fight! And a close one. I didn't even need to grapple it, since it brought me in close. Just a flurry of fists!

Later that adventure... when the pirate wizard cast black tentacles on us... which, of course, I ignored, I went up to the pirate with a falchion, and grabbed it from him. "Give that back!" he demanded, so I threw it behind me into the tentacles.

Oh yeah, absolutely no hard feelings towards the GM. Completely fair play to him. It just made the game a little more exciting than it should've been. :)

More teenage shenanigans from GMing for my church’s youth group. It’s technically not PFS any more since we started playing Skull and Shackles this year. Here are several quotes from today’s game, not necessarily in sequential order:

Me (as GM): I’d prefer that this game not get bogged down in a discussion of kobold genitalia.
~~~~~~
Player: You know how I said my character doesn’t drink? Well, I changed my mind because, you know, pirates.

The kobold bard twice fell in the water practicing grappling and boarding, and the master gunner was pointing out his inadequacies in a curse-heavy tirade.

Bard: I curse back at the master gunner draconic..

Master Gunner: I don’t speak good draconic, but I know what that means!

4/5

I was playing my L1 champion of Sarenrae because it suited the scenario and there was one other L1 at the table, but the party as a whole was playing up. Both players decided to use their mentor boons on the other L1 character and left me with just the standard level bump. I told them, "Fine! The Dawnflower is with me, and that's the only mentor I need!"

Correct me if I'm wrong, but (assuming this is for 2E) I believe multiple PCs should be able to profit from the same mentor boon. Each PC can only profit from 2 different boons max, but one higher-level PC's mentor boon can "mentor" several PCs. Still, who needs worldly mentors when you have Sarenrae on your side?! :)

Party has to break several Halflings out of prison. They stack them on top of each other, give them a guard uniform, and a Silent Image spell over them of a regular guard. A battalion of real guards spot them, one Halfling falls out. Party member immediately yells, "It's a boy!"
