Here is the repository of our wit. It's long been said that the story
line of our campaign is far less important than scoring zingers on the
quote list. I've managed to compile quote lists for all the sessions I've
been to, even the one where we didn't maintain a quote list. I wasn't
present for Session 5, so no quotes for that day. Other notes that I
should mention are that Jeremy Franklin joined the group after I (Jeremy
Zimmerman) did. So, in earlier sessions, where it refers only to Jeremy,
it's referring to Jeremy Z.
I make no guarantees as to this list's appeal to others. It's only virtue
is that we were amused. Each section has a link corresponding to that
session's list of events.

delivering the King of Amber to the Courts of Chaos represents the height

Jeremy Z.: Partly because other players have tried to kill him.
"Is there anything in shadow that hasn't fallen apart?!"
Jeremy Z.: Do you fear her curse?
Devin: The thing about curses is that you have to be able to speak them. So, no, I'm not worried.

"How do you escape the end of the world? Build condos in the Abyss?"-Cort

Jeremy Z.: I have a spell to regrow arms.
Michaela: Could you make spares while you're at it?
"Congratulations. We now have 'ookie' Amber."-Athena
Jeremy Z.: (recounting events to Athena) and then you cut my hand off.
Other Andy: Thus severing the trump.
Michaela: Do you know how hard it is to find a Merlin shaped Jell-O mold?
Devin: Or how about a cake ring now you have a really pissed off bunt cake.
Other Andy: I don't know we could put him in tooth paste tubes. "Merlin topical Ointment". (rubbing his hands together) I need to summon Ghostwheel!
Other Andy: So could we make an olive loaf of Merlin?
Michaela: Or a meatloaf?

Jeremy Z.: (after examining Z. Eric through his lens) I'm gonna scope Lamianna out really quick and see what she looks like.
Andy: (laughing) You're just going to start leering at her?
Jeremy Z.: No, I mean is she undead?
Andy: Lamianna, this wolf is looking at you, his tongue sort of hanging out...
Jeremy Z.: So what does she look like?
Andy: Well, she's not all she's cracked up to be she's kind of muscular, and you don't really go for that type...
Jeremy Z.: I mean the undead thing, you ass.
"I think what you call fun, others would call mind numbing agony."-Cort
Athena: (on Fiona) I didn't mean to. She came through my computer.
Jeremy Z.: I was checking my email, and there she was!

"When you've lost your head, what are a few clothes?"-Athena
Flora: No this isn't happening
Eric: It's happened. Deal with it.
Egon: Lamianna? Cigar?
Lamianna: Think it goes with the tits?
Noel: Give me a reason not to kill it.
Harlok: You'll hit the ground next.
"Huh?"-Benedict, in a drunken stupor
Benedict: Hey puppy, puppy...
Jeremy Z.: If this wasn't Benedict, I'd be pissed.
"He'd come through if I was naked."-Michaela, regarding Benedict

Andy: She walks you over to the pentagram.
Jeremy Z.: Corwin! I've got your kid! Get over here now!
Andy: He appears to be...

Andy: Everything's in ruins. They've leveled the castle
Cort: They've viciously rearranged the florals!
"Is it just me, or is this reassuring in a weird sort of way?"-Devin, on Brand obtaining the Jewel of Judgement
"I'm gonna put Benedict in a sack!"-Michaela
Noel: It was okay when your king had it.

Devin: I love it when people come in from the hall saying "Oh, geez".
Athena: I was reminded that I'm leaving today.

"Bite me, you little ground vermin."-Harlok
Devin: Are you two done smelling each others' butts?
Jeremy F.: Where I just came from, that's a pretty common greeting.
Devin: That would explain why Egon keeps walking up behind me.
Bleys: Would you care to explain this?
Aramis: Yes, did you have a hand in this?
Bleys: As you will notice, this change did not bring back everyone that has ever died. Only the recently dead.
Egon: But I found Eric as an animated corpse, and he has been dead for years.
Aramis: Now that is a paws for concern.
"Was there any point to that, or are you just tired of life?"-Harlok, to Julian
