  • The following exchange found here. Doubles as a BrickJoke referring to a previous adventure.
Byron (to a sackful of children): I know this is weird, but this has come up before: None of you happen to be the secret evil mastermind of this whole thing, right?
Kids: No.
  • While possibly dark humor, here's a fine example. A goblin engineer, annoyed by two slave masters whipping orcs repeatedly (because the noise was ruining his concentration, and that their antics are irritatingly inefficient) tells both of them off, and essentially tells them that the orcs would work harder if they had an expectation of not being whipped. The two slave masters argue with the goblin, stating that the orcs are animals that live in the moment, and there's no way they'd be able to understand that concept. When the slave masters turn back to the orcs, the orcs are still working, carrying DOUBLE the loads they were before, and look, if not happy, then less miserable. The engineer's response is priceless.
