I'm reposting my mispost from yesterday.

Although I am sure the thread about how often we gamers get to play was happy to hear about The Room and Shooting across the room.

So from yesterdays mess up:

I can't believe we've made it this far without referencing Shooting across the room.

Or "Oh Hai Ross!" "Oh Hai Cody!"

This isnt as bad as that time we stormed the Ilithid city.

This has been talked about a few times with mixed awe and annoyance. Epic level D&D city assault that took two game sessions to complete.

My favorite part of it was Setherick having to deal with the devil, I think it was a pit fiend, that kept teleporting in and out of combat. His paladin(?) couldn't deal quite enough damage in the span of a single round to drop the enemy so it would teleport away, get healed, and come back later.

It was a pit fiend. On the the first round, I reduced the thing to less than 10 hit points, but it managed to sneak away. What really annoyed me though was the rest of the party taking their sweet time crossing the open field - archery death range - while my paladin took on wave after wave of front line fighters.

well I wouldn't call teleporting away sneaking but whatever. For that fight, I had at least 10 named NPC enemies (epic level of course) to throw against the PCs.

Epic 3E turns into a game of rock, paper, scissors at a certain point. Either you're basically immune to the attack or you're so unprepared for it you'll get squashed by it.

To this post let me add the reference: "What the fuck do you mean vorpal bite?"

Vorpal bite reminded me of Vorpal Gangrene and Dragon Syphillis.

Tom's favorite line from one of the skits I wrote is "I need underwear, motor oil, and a ham sandwich." I'm not sure if he's ever said it during a recorded game, but he used to say it when we'd be discussing what gear to take with us (usually in a CoC game).

It's often referenced by Tom, and I've heard Thad reference it once or twice too.
