"...before turning the gun on himself."
Yeah, enjoy that image mofos.
What's the weirdest/most random thing your GM has ever thrown at you in an RP? What's the strangest thing you've ever thrown at your players?
Possibly my personal favourite was the old-tech robot I threw at my players in a post-apocalypse game. Due to decades of wear and tear, the poor thing (a robotic traffic-warden before the bombs fell) was quite insane, to the point that it followed around any passer-by it saw and rattled off past parking violations and fines at them, convinced that they were the ones it was supposed to fine.
It basically went something like this:
Robot: "25.04.34 FINE OF $100. PAY NOW OR FACE CONSEQUENCES."
Party: "Fuck off."
THREE HOURS LATER
Robot: "13.07.47 FINE OF $2500. PAY NOW OR FACE CONSEQUENCES."
Party: "FUCK OFF!"
And so on.
Of course, it slowly became more and more irate with the characters when it found them, and eventually, due to being completely batshit insane, attacked them. It being old technology, it was packing some fairly dangerous weaponry, meaning that what was originally just an irritating inconvenience suddenly became a serious threat.
