Let's keep it simple. Any stories involving someone not being aware that a microphone or other type of broadcast equipment was still active, or otherwise not being aware that other people could hear them?

Picking the winner wasn't tough this time around.
Specter just got his third prize.
So here's a twenty sided dice.
All ones.

You mean, like a d20 on which all sides have one instead of their usual number? Beacause I have one like that. Also, one that has only 20's.

@Someone
Did you get those custom made or did you find some company that manufactured them for you? Because I've been looking for both of those for ages on the market.

Custom made, wooden, to avoid further questions.

... now my luck has come to reality.

Maybe if I give my brother the dice, he'll at least get nat. 20's.

Shadowrun-- the party broke into a sizable office building to confront a corrupt executive. Most of the team gets caught during the infiltration and their weapons/recorders are confiscated. The exec is feeling pretty good about capturing them and so lets his guard down just enough that he mentions a couple of the evil plans he was involved in (basically lots of money laundering and extortion).

What he didn't count on was the team technomancer. She wasn't caught yet and managed to record the conversation using the office building's security system. One quick file transfer later and Lonestar was knocking on the front door. XD

So yeah, sometimes even the best security system hurts you.

Our old DM was a bit of a stickler for everybody staying in character while at the table and had a nasty way of punishing the group for talking OOC. For example if the group started talking strategy about a battle then if our characters were within earshot of the enemies and they were intelligent enough to understand them then we would actually be announcing our plans on how to beat them directly to them.

Wow that's annoying. I couldn't play under a GM like that... well, I might try some shenanigan first such as contacting all the players prior and setting up a code so when we talk about strategy in front of the enemy we're actually tricking the GM into a trap.
