GM: A pirate ship! Enemy Attack! Enemy Attack! Sailor 1: I roll for initiative! 16! GM: They haven't boarded the ship yet! Sailor 2: I use my grappling hook! GM: Why-No! Just go look for the Captain. Sailor 1: Good Idea. We can kill the Captain and take the ship. GM: I meant your Captain. Sailor 1: That's who I meant.
Nat: I poke my head out the door and look around. Do I see anything? GM: You see nothing. Nat: I step outside. GM: As soon as you step outside, you notice Alvida's ship pulling alongside the ship. Nat: This is the same ship you told me about? GM: Yes. Nat: I run back inside.
Nat: With my trusty zip-line, I make my way across the crystal blue ocean below. As I do this, I ponder about my predicament. I worry about the people back home. [...] With cat-like reflexes, I land gracefully onto Alvida's ship. [...] I stealthily and gracefully sneak about.
GM: Suddenly, someone steps out the door next to you! It's one of Alvida's men!
Nat: Wait hold on. You were inside that barrel the whole time? Luke: Yep. Nat: The barrel made for holding wine. Luke: Uh huh... Nat: The completely sealed barrel that had to be broken open? Luke: That's the one! Anyway, I was probably sleeping in there and didn't notice someone was sealing it up. Nat: I get it now. GM: You do? Nat: Luke's playing an idiot.
Cory: I immediately search for traps. GM: Not this again... Cory: Damn, got a 4. GM: We're in a tavern. Cory: Taverns can have traps. Luke: One way to spot a trap is to look for an adam's apple. Cory: ...I stop searching.
The expressions in the screencaps (such as Luffy's deadpan one above) top off these exchanges.
Cory: Oh c'mon! You let Luke play his character and he's just as if not more overpowered than mine!
GM: Luke actually came up with a name and a backstory for his character.
Luke:(as Luffy, blithely smiling) I was raised by owls!
The GM uses skittles to represent Mooks. Cue this during the second arc:
Cory: Hooooly Crap. The GM just opened up three bags of skittles.
Luffy Vs. Mohgi
GM: Look, you got cover bonus for the bars, okay? But he's likely to either hit you or miss the cage. Unless I roll an 11 or 12. * Rolls* Gm: Sonuva- Luke: FREEDOM! GM: Who cursed my dice?
Luke: Hahaha! Did that really just happen? Can we say that's what happened? Phil: Look, I'm a pirate, right? So that means I at least have a gun, right? GM: Eh... not really. You do have a slingshot, though. Phil: ...the fuck?! GM: And no, I'm not screwin' with you. About that.
This exchange, after learning that Luffy and Zoro ate a month's worth of food in a day:
