* Edit: Swordsaged [[labelnote:Explanation]] Used in D&D forums. For instance: At the Giant in the Park message board, they say swordsaged instead of Ninja'd, because of how they seem to out-ninja ninjas in 3.5.[[/labelnote]]
** In game, Dex based swordsages in spite of being considered the weakest of the 3 Tome of Battle classes, have a notorious reputation for ganking opponents not correctly defending themselves. [[labelnote:Explanation]] The reason for this is manyfold. Reason One is their initiative bonus. Heavy incentive for dex, the Quick to Act class feature, along with other potential but basic minmaxing such as gear, often means they're leaving NPC's in the dust, acting first. Reason Two is the combination of Shadow Blade, insightful strikes and Assassin's stance. Shadow Blade is a feat that allows them to add dex to damage when in a shadow hand stance and using shadow hand weapons. Said stance is often the assassin's stance, adding +2d6 sneak attack. Insightful strikes adds wisdom to damage when using maneuvers from a selected school. Thirdly is incidentally, the maneuvers. They let them do things like pop off 10d6 damage in a standard attack, do short ranged teleports as move actions, turn invisible for their turn as a swift action, or evenmove freely during a charge - giving them an array of heavy hitting options while avoid the riposte. [[/labelnote]] Long story short: Massive initiative checks, stealth, damage bonuses and class features make them crazy-quick at getting the drop on foes - Usually in the first or surprise rounds.

** *CLANG!* WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT? [[labelnote:Explanation]] People conjectured that, since the rod was now fixed to one point in space, no one would see it again until some unfortunate passed through the same region of space and got hit by the rod.[[/labelnote]]

* You scored all the points but the Galactic Partidges won the battle. [[labelnote: Explanation]]A fan-made chapter of Space Marines found on /tg/ who steal victories out from under other armies. Meant to parody both the Blood Ravens (known in memes as chronic thieves of relics rather than victories, bird-based name) and the penchant for Games Workshop to have Space Marines show up and be credited with saving the day in canon, regardless of how well other Imperial forces are fighting at the time. [[/labelnote]]
* The 1st Membranes will kill you with mindbullets. [[labelnote:Explanation]]An army of Imperial Guardsmen generated using the tables in the still-in-beta 40k RPG ''Only War'' used to represent /tg/ in the setting when the Angry Marines aren't around. Known for the hilariously canon defiling concept (generated by the dice completely fairly, but still absurd) of an entire guard regiment made up of unstable, weak-willed psykers. [[/labelnote]]

* The PDF tried to respond but were killed to a man. [[labelnote:Explanation]]A meme lampooning the general incompetence of the Planetary Defence Force in most of 40k fiction.fiction. A PDF is supposed to be an Imperial army stationed on a planet, capable of defending their world until they get reinforcements that can actually drive off an invader. 9 times out of ten, the PDF for a planet being invaded/corrupted/in a rebellion/etc. will be either completely destroyed or become heretics. These armies are usually mocked by Imperial Guard or Space Marines for their constant ineptitude.[[/labelnote]]

*** "SO WHY DID YOU MANA WEAVE?" [[labelnote:Explanation]]"Mana weaving" is distributing your lands evenly throughout your deck before playing, which negates the possibility of mana screw. Doing it is either uselessly time-consuming or an unfair advantage depending on the thoroughness of the ensuing shuffling. A comic was made to this effect.[[/labelnote]]
