Story Time, anyone? Any stories about being "in sync" with another player? Page 1000 is fast approaching, after all...

I've had lots of times where an NPC was so suspicious that all the PCs rolled Sense Motive at the same time.

There was one time I thought another player was trying to buy something, so I started criticizing it to lower the price. The vendor got mad at me, so when the other player bought the thing, he said, "There, see? Someone appreciates the finer things."

"Yep, thanks for the discount."

"What? You're together?"

That gets a "No soup for you!" Come back 2 years.

Really, you mess with NPC merchants enough and you find out quickly just how linked they are and how being blacklisted can mess you up.

Eh, that particular example is probably just a case of "You fell for that?" And that's if they even know who did it - it's not like the merchants are passing around photographs, and while they likely know each other, they're not going to sabotage their own business just because a friend fell for a haggling trick that they've probably used themselves. At worst, they'll be more aware of it next time.

Heck, it's entirely likely that the merchant still made a profit on the sale. Just less than they would have preferred.

Not quite a role-play, but a shared fanfic. The premise involves a broken multiverse forcing every fictional universe ever into time loops, with new material from the source being 'extensions' to the loops.

Anyway: Recently, a show that a particular loop was based on finally let us see a character that was setting important... and then killed her off. Now, we could have focused on the bad aspects, how they wasted a character and put a bad guy in charge. But, as one, we decided that the loopers would be interested in one particular thing.

The comfy chair.

See, this character got a throne room for her dramatic death. Complete with throne. And there had already been a running gag involving another chair and the constant struggle to obtain it, so obviously, OBVIOUSLY, the best option was for the loopers (who at this point have gathered so many skills it's embarrassing) to obsess over this new comfy chair.

Cue snips of them sitting in it, much to the annoyance of the actual throne owner. Or stealing it, much to the annoyance of the actual throne owner. Or having relations on it, much to the annoyance of the actual throne owner. From all the authors.

Never underestimate the importance of a comfy chair.

... You wouldn't happen to be talking about RWBY, would you?

Yeah, the RWBY loops, part of the Infinite Loops project...

kind of a thing for me these days.

Hmmm... personally I don't mind the fact that Khan was killed off as soon as she was introduced. She's a potentially fascinating character for sure, but its meant to reflect just how far Adam has gone, and how far the White Fang has falle nas well.
