QuoteIn the midst of what had been several sessions of some of the funniest roleplaying I'd done since Toon Paranoia (genuinely funny...as in "we'd have laughed if it had been on tv") was a moment of tragedy so pure it left me speechless.
QuoteWhen we returned, Na'ir was emerging from the Mistake, bloody and broken but still clutching the hilt of his father's sword. Nonetheless, he knew what he had to do. He staggered to the remnant and entered it. The city was full of wailing and crying as the Wail exacted its vengeance. He groped his way to the top of the Starsinger tower, which is the tallest tower in the remnant. Grasping the hilt of his father's sword, he plunged it into the floor. Then he lifted his face to the sky and called out a name.And the stars began to fall. And with them, they brought healing and life.In response, the Mistake belched up a demon horde which poured from its maw, hurtling towards the remnant. Na'ir drew forth his father's sword, which was reforged in ice, and personally led the defense of the remnant. He rallied the defenders, including Heka, and forced the demon horde back from the remnant. Then, in a scene reminiscent of Return of the King, cavalry from another remnant arrived and charged. The demon horde was scattered. A falling star obliterated the Wail. The remnant was saved.And then, as Na'ir turned from the battle, a stray arrow pierced his heart. He fell, and he died.No one remembered him and his noble leadership. No songs were ever sung of his sacrifice. Indeed, he was blamed by the people for raising the Mistake against the remnant. He was accounted a traitor to the people, and his name was dust on the winds of time, forgotten by all.Except for us.
QuoteOk, so what was you single best moment (scene, part of a scene, line) RPGing since B-day 2005.
