Saturdays have been "podcast publish day" for so long that it's going to take me a while to get used to Thursdays. But the last three years of editing audio files has helped streamline the process, so I figured you all should benefit.

I like to call this one London Bridge is Falling Down
Basically, people and important things are on the bridge.
Someone destroys said bridge
You get idea.
Any stories?

No, but a friend has a story involving a convertible that saved his character from being killed by a bridge~

It was a kind of Super Spy campaign. The party was chasing down enemy agents in a helicopter across the Seven Mile Bridge in the Florida keys. During the fight, the baddies damaged their vehicle so everyone had to bail out. The party jumps out of the helicopter into the water below, except for my friend; he accidentally jumped out the other side--over the bridge. At the height he was at and with traffic below, he was guaranteed to go splat and be killed.

The GM decided to give him a longshot~ A 3% chance of surviving this fall by some miracle. My friend rolls the percentile and... 1%, a critical success of the highest order!

The GM rules that his character lands in the plush back seat of a passing convertible (that had it's roof down), resulting in him only breaking both legs against the passenger door. An amazing stroke of die rolling luck right there. ^_^

I wish I could have a good story. I've sadly had so many killer gms use any character against me. I never have any character with family, friends usable, or even a cat/dog.

Anytime i've remotely had something nice, those types have deliberately gone after them. I hate that design idea, but its so heavily ingrained, that even now.

I just can't deviate from giving a gm any character ammo for them to destroy any bridges as it were.

Once bitten, twice shy, as it goes. Though more in my case, its dozens burned, learned the darn lesson.

does blowing up a building count
if its the wrong building?

(due to bad penmanship we blew up the wrong warehouse... ironically one scheduled for demolition.)

Gilda's comment about AJ's accent reminds me of times I've played heavily accented characters. I sometimes get really into character that the accent stays "on" when I'm speaking OOC. XD

The two more notable characters are my main OC Doc Wagon (who has a western twang) and The Great and Powerful Trixie, who had a slight Spanish accent because I rolled her Rs as I do in Spanish so it became natural to bring out the accent to make it easier to speak her lines.

I'm okay with a Spanish Trixie. :3

Then there was a former local player who also did a Spanish accent for his Rogue Kard and he often forgot to turn it off when speaking OOC. Good times.

Now I'm just imagining Trixie as one of those over-dramatic Spanish-language Soap Opera Divas. It's a surprisingly suitable match.
