The funniest thing last night in our Spirit of the Century game actually related to me remembering an event from the previous session (which was two weeks ago).

Now you have to remember that I’m playing a bloke whose brain has been transplanted into the body of a gorilla. We’re at a ski lodge in the Alps, and everyone there thinks I’m just a pet gorilla of one of the other party members (my NPC friend Georgina). So I’m supposed to be keeping my mouth firmly shut.

The previous week we’d found a body in one of the guest rooms. In the corridor outside had been the young hotel porter who’d let us into the room. I said that I was going to go outside and get him to come in and take a look, so he could see that the room’s guest was dead (I didn’t want us to get the blame).

I didn’t specify how exactly I was going to get him to come in. Fast forward to last night…

Me: [during discussion on event] No, they know that the bloke’s dead because I went and got the hotel boy to come in and have a look.

Someone else: You did what?

Me: Ah. Hang on a minute. Yeah. I didn’t actually say that I was speaking… but I didn’t say that I wasn’t did I? Oh well, it doesn’t matter. He’s just a boy and he’d seen something traumatic so if he tries to tell people that I can talk and they come to me and ask me about it, it’s fine…

[crosses arms, smiles triumphantly]

I’ll just deny everything and say he must have been confused! No, wait…
