40- Adventures Suck

Dane: [GM] The swarm of insects is getting ever closer to your position. It's probably time to do some of that legging it that you were discussing.
Joe: [GR-210] GR-210 skitters away at full tilt. "Flee, flee before Kali can waste more body parts trying to help you!"
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey grabs his hat and starts to run.
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari sighs in exasperation and runs off.
Dane: [GM] Soo, what are you doing?
Soo: [OOC] I'm not really sure. I mean, I just lost a whole limb, shouldn't Kali be like, in shock or something? To say nothing of the hose of blood she's probably shooting off right about now.
Kyle: [OOC] Well, technically, you didn't hit anything in the rules that would say you'd be in shock, so as far as the game is concerned, you're perfectly healthy.
Soo: [OOC] That strikes me as oddly unrealistic.
Joe: [OOC] I'm a robot head on spider legs and Ian throws fireballs, THIS is what breaks your suspension of disbelief?
Soo: [OOC] Oh well, don't look a gift absence-of-logic in the mouth I always say.
Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali is making noises somewhere between panting, crying and grunting as she tries to chase the rest of the group while holding her hand over the stump of her arm.
Joe: [OOC] Kali sounds like my honeymoon.
Ian: [OOC] The panting/crying/grunting?
Kyle: [OOC] Don't encourage him.
Joe: [OOC] Nah, the bloody stumps. The ice-carver at the hotel was kind of clumsy.
Dane: [GM] You lot make your way through the tunnels back towards the surface at full speed, the sound of skittering bugs just behind you giving you motivation.
Dane: [GM] Gonna roll some athletics to see how you guys do.
Dane: [GM] All good. You all bolt out of the tomb and back into the snow. The bugs are still right behind you though!
Joe: [OOC] I feel like this warrants the Indiana Jones theme.
Ian: [OOC] I don't remember the movie where Indy evades hordes of extra-dimensional bugs.
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey dives into the snowdrifts around the temple entrance. "Er'ebody in 'ere!"
Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali sort of just flops into the snow, sobbing to herself.
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari hops into the snow with Bailey and Kali and reflexively shoves her hand over Kali's mouth to shut her up. "Got to keep quiet. They'll hear us."
Joe: [GR-210] GR-210 just sort of moves into the snow, since he doubts the bugs care about robo-meat.
Dane: [GM] The bugs burst out of the tomb/temple and fly off into the grey sky toward town. The sheer number is truly terrifying as they blacken the already overcast sky. Colton is err... what's that word you guys used? Hosed?
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey pops out of the snow and watches the bugs fly off. "Well, this wasn't what I was 'spectin' tah'day to turn out like."
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari takes out her potion from before and pours it on Kali's arm to heal and stop the bleeding.
Dane: [GM] That'll drop that mortal wound you had down to a minor one Soo, although you're still shy a limb.
Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali watches the potion close up her wound. She's still sniffling a bit but she seems better. "I... I didn't think it'd hurt that much."
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari hugs Kali super-tight. "Still, you got a buddy for life Ms. dVostog."
Joe: [GR-210] GR-210 skitters around, poking both of them with his legs. "I'd say go get a room, but those bugs are about to render every room in the town quite unpleasant."
Kyle: [OOC] Really Joe? Not a single sideways comment about Ian and Soo acting affectionate? I mean, every time they so much as address eachother, you usually freak out.
Ian: [OOC] Kind of surprised myself. 
Joe: [OOC] I point out when Ian and Soo do something, not when their characters do. It's called ROLEPLAYING, look it up... but not too throughly or you'll get to some odd websites. 
Soo: [OOC] So far we've traveled to the ice end of absolutely nowhere. The guy we were looking for is dead and his corpse probably being crapped out by a bug into the chest cavity of some other NPC we met and I've lost an arm. Do all adventures suck this much?
Joe: [OOC] Only the worst ones, and those are the ones you share with other people at the game shop, so doesn't that make them the best ones?
Ian: [OOC] On the upside, I got a shotgun.
Soo: [OOC] Not helping babe.
