Famous Last Words in Roleplaying Games


Famous Last Words in Roleplaying GamesWhat are your favorite famous last words in roleplaying games? I know you have them, what are they?

So many times we say just the right (or wrong) thing and the GM busts out some crazy story, monster, or twist that has us players eating our words. These phrases are usually uttered before some awesome epic thing happens in the story that you are playing. Often times these tales are told and retold years after gaming. Nearly all of them stem from a group of famous last words that are spoken by the player before they do something crazy. Or even something the Gamemaster have their non-player characters say just before their demise.

Some of these famous last words are self evident while others are not so clear. These may need a little bit of a story or history so others can get the full feel of the famous last words and what they really meant to the player and the gaming group.

Here are a few of my favorite famous last words. Add yours in a comment below. Then we can see this list grow!
