Hi all,

RC has been around for a while now, and I'm curious what kinds of fun stories have come out of gameplay. What awesome stories stick in your mind as particularly memorable? What was the most hilarious episode of your game? Or the most clever? Or the most according to plan? (Or the least?) Or your favorite character concept? Or the most flawed?

This is really a pretty open question. I'm just curious what kinds of awesomeness have come out of the game. Maybe teammates came together in a really unexpected yet effective way to create go-to combo moves. Maybe the lucky roll that made the day. Maybe the night everything went wrong. Just whatever is memorable for you.

I remember one where we were in an office foyer. The space in front of the reception desk was full of normal zombies plus one that was faster and sturdier than normal (an abomination?). While the cyborg was sparring with another abomination behind the reception desk and the commando was creeping around the back of the building and warning the others about all the additional zombies headed up the hallway toward them, the bouncer was in the foyer trying to screen the jedi from the horde.

After another dozen zombies had poured out of the interior hallway, the cyborg got sick of it and put down all the mundane zombies in the foyer with a blast from his built-in laser cannon. The two abominations (and the friendlies) survived, but the jedi used a team attack to force-push the abominations into the external wall. The one in the foyer went normally, but the one behind the reception desk was blocked by the desk. When the jedi rolled damage, though, his 2d8 exploded into 5d8 - which was on top of the previous damage thanks to the team attack - and so in a "there is no try" moment the receptionist zombie's torso was sheared off over the desk and flung into the wall to join its compatriot!

That was pretty funny.

The bellyflop episode amuses me.

We had a super-Z on the run. The sniper had blown up its motorboat and dumped it in the canal, but when everyone caught up to the area there was no obvious zombie. We figured it had to be in the water somewhere, but the water was murky and didn't show anything, and so we had three heroes following along the shore plus a shapechanger-bird in the air chasing a motion that might just be an animal.

Afraid of the super-Z getting away if it turned out they were chasing an alligator or something, the shapechanger decided to find out one way or another. He glided in over the motion and changed from bird (size = small) to giant human (size = large) and bellyflopped in to try and grapple the whatever-it-was.

He took a faceful of slam damage and missed the target besides, but the near ton of humanoid splashed out enough water to reveal a surprised-looking super-Z mid-stride along the bottom and the Jedi was able to give him a shove back to the recovering giant to grapple. It was downhill for the zombie from there.

Did the player do that on purpose or was that a funny-in-hindsight oversight? :lol:

I was the player! :twisted:

High attack roll (giving Crippled), but flubbed the damage (only 12 Stamina inflicted, needed 14 to cause Massive Damage).

Haha. Yeah, that's rough. The crippling freeze ray sounds like it would be great for getting away from hordes of zombies - and for destroying them outright with enough damage. When they're already entangled with friendlies, though, heh. It's too bad the damage wasn't high enough to just splash all the zombies outright.

How did the other players take it? :D
