"I never thought of it that way"
For context, I’ve been running a game of Rocket Age and we just got through the 3rd episode. One of my players has Psi Powers and a high convince skill, consistently using them to mess with the status quo or other players. The players are on a rescue mission and have just boarded a enemy ship.
Me: Alright the turn order is loaded, PSI you’re the first one out the door. What do you do?
PSI: I find the first guard and I convince him to stop being a bad guy.
Me: Okay you’re gonna need a high roll for that.
PSI proceeds to roll his dice and get a critical hit.
Me: Oh my god!
Other Players: [Laughing Furiously]
PSI: YES! Alright, “Have you ever thought about not being one of the bad guys?”
Me: Okay fine! [Clears throat], the guard looks over to you and ponders it for a moment before saying “I never thought of it that way” before shedding his uniform.
Other Players: [Still laughing]
The thing that really got me was that not only had PSI once done this before, but he got the exact same roll he did last time and used these exact same words. Clearly someone needs nerfing in the future.
