commander shepard rattling off monologues from human scifi movies every time she has to make a speech and the humans in the team just snorting under their breath while the aliens are like “wow did she just make this up out of nowhere? this is amazing”
We can’t be consumed by our petty differences any more. We will be united in our common interest.
We’re fighting for our right to live, to exist. Today will be the day when the galaxy declared in one voice, ‘We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on, we’re going to survive!’
the anti vaccination movement basically consists of random people with no knowledge of medicine going “I can medicine better than doctors” and it would be hilarious if it wasn’t literally killing people
I want a movie about a guy who runs for president and wins but then suddenly realizes that he doesn’t want to be president, so he just starts doing ridiculous things all the time trying to get impeached, but it NEVER WORKS because they always miraculously end up being the right thing to do. Like, he declares war on Canada? Next day it turns out that Canada had secret plans to nuke Washington. he bans Doritos? Turns out theyr’e the number one cause of cancer and natural disasters. He sends his vice president to jail? Turns out the VP was a terrorist in disguise. He has 100% approval rating, most popular president ever.
I’ve decided that I want him to be played by Jeff Goldblum.
I'm always a little distressed when these questions get asked because the answer is the same as it always has been: talk with your players, politely, about what you think is wrong, and what your expectations are, and then listen to their expectations, and then try to get them to more closely match each other. Just talk to them. That's all it takes. Directness. If you're trying to play a cooperative storytelling game with someone you can't actually ever cooperate with, then stop doing that.
