I think I’ve found the greatest Top Secret RPG campaign ever. (It beats my own experience with that game quite handily.) If this quote doesn’t sum up Top Secret, I don’t know what does:
Finally, a wino picked off the agents one by one. Not because he was after them, but because they kept going down into his corner of the sewers alone and messing with him…. the final confrontation with the wino was a really cool fight. By this point, the wino had given up on trying to be peaceful and instead ambushed the guy with the gun he’d gotten from killing the professional assassin.
Ah, the good old days of roleplaying.by
“They’re a kind of dog, right?”
That cracked me up.
Alan, you might also find the story of the “gazebo incident” entertaining as well. It involves a similar vocabulary mix-up.
As I read that incident, the dread Gazebo was the first thing that came to my mind as well. 🙂
