Episode 1134: Insensed

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Be careful when saying you'll take something to your grave. It might be a short trip.

In a game you could potentially have some sort of Death by Dramatic Irony rule. If a character says something that typically foreshadows their own tragic demise in works of fiction, they get a penalty to defence and saving throws for the next few turns or something. (If nothing else, this is a good way to get players to avoid spouting clichés during combat.)
