1. There’s ALWAYS another secret door. ALWAYS. And if the tunnel is a dead end, there’s DEFINITELY a secret door within it somewhere. Or, you know, just treasure. Or a trap. Or a monster. Or an elder god waiting to swallow your soul. But there’s no reason not to look!
2. Dopey Ninja? I knew there were seven dwarves, but seven ninjas? If so, then who’s who…hmm…
No no no, she is practicing the pronouns:
First person singular: I am a ninja
Second person singular (Masculine): He’s a ninja
Second person singular (Feminine): She’s a ninja
First person plural: We’re a ninja
Third person plural: They’re a ninja
Centurion: What’s this, then? “Romanes eunt domus”? People called Romanes, they go, the house?
Brian: It says, “Romans go home. ”
Centurion: No it doesn’t ! What’s the latin for “Roman”? Come on, come on !
Brian: Er, “Romanus” !
Centurion: Vocative plural of “Romanus” is?
Brian: Er, er, “Romani” !
Centurion: [Writes “Romani” over Brian’s graffiti] “Eunt”? What is “eunt”? Conjugate the verb, “to go” !
Brian: Er, “Ire”. Er, “eo”, “is”, “it”, “imus”, “itis”, “eunt”.
Centurion: So, “eunt” is…?
Brian: Third person plural present indicative, “they go”.
Centurion: But, “Romans, go home” is an order. So you must use…?
[He twists Brian’s ear]
Brian: Aaagh ! The imperative !
Centurion: Which is…?
Brian: Aaaagh ! Er, er, “i” !
Centurion: How many Romans?
Brian: Aaaaagh ! Plural, plural, er, “ite” !
Centurion: [Writes “ite”] “Domus”? Nominative? “Go home” is motion towards, isn’t it?
Brian: Dative !
[the Centurion holds a sword to his throat]
Brian: Aaagh ! Not the dative, not the dative ! Er, er, accusative, “Domum” !
Centurion: But “Domus” takes the locative, which is…?
Brian: Er, “Domum” !
Centurion: [Writes “Domum”] Understand? Now, write it out a hundred times.
Fuck off! We’re the People’s Front of Judea!
Do you perhaps mean Judaea?
I thoght we were the P0pular Front?
I’ll remember that scene next time I see a misplaced apostrophe.
Better remember it when somebody tries himself in a foreign language…
“Can I become a steak?”
Of course you can.
I wanna be a pirate!
Aye! Who doesn’t like booty, anyway?
Ninjas get lots of booty.
Yeah, I bet they do. Why, I remember watching some samurai movie(I believe there were ninjas in it, but even so they’re all the same) where they all got lots of booty from one of the young, effeminate samurais(admittedly, he was really hot like that).
It was actually a rather fun movie to watch, as I remember it, mainly because they were killing each other over that guy’s affections and I think he turned out to be a real dick(no pun intended) too.
Ah, and here it is, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taboo_%281999_film%29 . I searched for “gay samurai film” on Google to find it. 😆
I just realized the actor playing the effeminate samurai was 15 y-o at the time of filming.
Eh, fuck age-related sex laws, they mostly have nothing to do with reality anyway.
I learned about this film in my Japanese Cinema course. Only some of us watched it, me not included, because we didn’t have time for it but those who did watch it gave a presentation on it. It was………interesting to say the least.
Hell, I made myself want to see it again so I’ve downloaded it. Gonna watch it again soon, but apart from the overall plot I described I can’t say I remember much of it, just lots of horny Japanese guys fighting over him…They should make a porn version of it, that would rock. 😀
But they have to give their booty to their lord.
I’m not a fan of that step.
Yeah, what’s the point in killing people if you’re not gonna grab their stuff too? I mean, sure, I like killing people same as the next guy, probably even more so…undoubtedly much, much more sickeningly more so, but I’ve got to live, don’t I? And a guy has expenses, you know.
All this Ninja business reminds of these episodes.

I’m guessing Kevin might have been slightly influenced by that.
Ask a Ninja is of course THE classic ninja theme song, but in reality the rollover was a parody of the old Dr. Pepper commercials.
Kinda sucks that I don’t know either. Well, I might understand something of Ask A Ninja now that Chris has linked to it, but I only really got the general “search for hidden doors in RPGs” joke from this strip.
I, uh, blame it on your American egocentricity!
Sadly, the Ask a Ninja series no longer uses that intro.
The song is by a band called The Neu Tickles. You can see them performing the entire song live here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XczUg76rFsI
Pretty sure they do, Ron. They had asked for a bunch of fan themes and played around with a few, but I think they went back to the old one. Everyone just liked it better.
Not last I checked – which was just 3 seconds ago. The current episode does not use the Neu Tickles song. I has a sad.
The DM was doing well at tormenting his players for a while, but the balance is shifting back to status quo, it would seem. Even Fleece is starting to use the insanity, rather than be hampered by it. I’m not sure whether to feel sad or not… I certainly wouldn’t have minded watching Enkidu and Fleece suffer some more.
And before anyone calls that sadistic, consider the kind of characters they are.
Some would call that innovative.
