We've talked about our favorite games, favorite characters, and even our favorite systems over the course of this blog. So today I want to talk about our favorite scenes. As a GM what was the absolute best scene you ran, or at least your favorite.
For me it was a scene I ran while GMing on Five Rings Online. The player for the scene was playing a ronin on musha shugyo who had left his daisho at home and instead brought a bokken (wooden) daisho in place of it. In the scene he ended up in a fight against 3 heavily armored warriors in a market. I ruled that his bokken couldn't do any damage against the heavily armored monsters he was fighting, and the player asked for a detailed description of the market.
What followed was one of the most dynamic fights I've ever ran as the player ran around the market, using whatever he could find as a weapon or to buy him time. At one point he bought himself a round away from one guy by throwing a live chicken into the mempo of one of his assailants. It is going to take a lot for me to top the dynamism and excitement that was in that scene.
How about you? What scene you ran was your favorite?
