"I wipe my blade"  also refers to Orphanbane - the RPPR dragon's sword. This refers to a session of Iron Heroes when a player who had a knight in shining armor kind of character was attacked by street children brainwashed by an assassin cult. He mowed them down and then declared "I wipe my blade" without a thought - even though the rest of us were slightly horrified by this previously Lawful Good type killing a bunch of street kids.

I never heard it explained, but sometimes someone will make a "Dun nun nununu" sound like in Duel of the Fates. I think it's supposed to be when people were doing epic combat manuevers.

Another unrecorded one:

"Longpig."

Recorded one:

And a fairly obvious one that takes place after some battles.

That'd be the Paragon game, which I enjoyed quite a bit.

No, it's Duel of Fates.

edit: I love the Conan OST but Duel of Fates is more of a fight song.

For the record, Ross being a horrible monster did originate in the whole mind-control debacle debate that briefly raged on the internet.  I believe it came from Ross saying it sarcastically that he was a horrible monster and then it kind of stuck.

The "immerse me" I believe was Cody being a smartass during an early New World game where Ross was trying to describe something, there was a lot of table chatter/questioning, so Ross just really bluntly stated what happened  or the like and Cody demanded that Ross "immerse me."  So now subsequently it evolved into bugging the GM into describing inconsequential details that have no real significance or meaning.

Layers upon layers is a good one.  It was explained in one of the earlier episodes of the podcast.  Believe it came from a review of something that was overly haughty and Tom and Ross decided to adapt it to sound "snooty"...

"Squamp bamp dadalow dowww" -Sung by Tom Church as a transitionary noise between scenes

Origin: I had no idea what this was supposed to be until one early AP where Tom did it after someone remarked this was like an episode of Seinfeld. It then occurred to me that it was supposed to be the iconic bass riff from that show. Correct me if I'm wrong there.

Before Ross started recording game sessions, Tom and I would often sing all the songs from Metalocalypse. Our favorite was the Coffee Jingle.

Another Tom joke I've taken for my own:

"What did one poor person say to the other poor person? Whooooo cares?!?!"
42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
If you can't fix it with duck tape you haven't used enough.
I intend to live forever -- so far, so good.

I think that one is a Family Guy line. Not to say it couldn't also be an independent thought; it's not an especially complex line.
