I used to write songs (silly, stupid, or otherwise) all the time for games. Our group template for a Cyberpunk game (over a decade ago) was a mercenary rock band. We wrote all sorts of horrible song lyrics for that...

And one of my favorite campaigns I ever GM'd was based on a song, story-wise.


What song?

We used to enforce the "Time Warp" rule.


When non-adventuring mundania (buying supplies and weapons, chatting up the barmaid, uneventful travel) bogged down the game, the GM would declare a "Time Warp" and we all had to hop up and do a quick chorus of the Rocky Horror classic, dancing and all.

It took the discharge or transfer of 90% of the group to finally end the tradition.

Did you change any other lines? I like it either way.

I redid the whole first verse. O Computer! Our home Alpha Complex!
The end, coincidentally and awesomely, stayed the same, We stand on guard for thee.

This was part of their troubleshooter wake up routine.

It's jump to the left. And another step to the right. . .
Sounds hilarious. :clap:

I don't have my original rendition, but here's another stab at it. Sheet music available.

O Computer!
Our home Alpha Complex!
True citizens are of thy great command.
With laser guns we shoot Commies,
Troubleshooters that we be!
Outside and In, O Computer,
We stand on guard for thee.
We find trouble, and shoot it dead!
O Computer, we stand on guard for thee.
O Computer, we stand on guard for thee.


With apologies to the great nation of Canada.

I wrote and ode to... bacon. The game died shortly afterwards.

In another game, the party met a group of dwarves singing about their travels, one line being something to the effect of "hard ground under our feet". Now, one character in the group had a name spelled the same way as ground (not english, his name was "Mark" as is the word for ground). The character promptly screamed: "Are they singing about trampling me!? I TAKE INSULTS FROM NO ONE!"

Heh. There was one original Paranoia adventure set in, IIRC, WST Sector, with all the classic trimmings of a Western. And there was a guy singing parodies of Western songs, in the same general pattern as the above.

Inspired, I came up with (and added into the scene) the chorus of "The Bot with No Name" (To the tune of A Bot with No Name :

On the first part of the mission
I was looking at all the gear
There were guns and bombs and knives and things
There was R & D tac-nukes
None of which I was cleared to carry or use
And the PA was weak
Three guys sat behind a laser shield
And we could not hear them speak

Ive been through the sector on a bot with no name
It felt good to be out of the vats
In the sector you don't have to give your name
cause there aint no cams for to tell where you're at.
La, la ...


The players cringed.... One of my finer moments. :twisted:

My very first D&D long-term campaign kicked off with:

    "When the evil that slumbers shall waken and grow,
    And the slaves of the Orb shall serve the Dark Foe
    When ominous clouds shall threatened the land,
    And the Decadent Legions shall aid his foul hand,

    Then shall the King of the legends be born,
    And with sword crown and scepter and gleaming white horn,
    He shall forge an alliance with nations at war,
    And slay the foul demon at Carador."

It was very much a standard Dark Lord campaign. Go around the lands gathering the items (sword, crown, scepter horn), and keep the infant king hidden while he was growing up. Then there was a great big fight.

We won.
