Hilarious game I had in Arms Law, the GM rolls a critical fumble and looks up the results. "The orc disembowels himself, you start laughing so hard you loose 2 turns". And I did. I did start laughing.

Exactly as Psionics should be. Super rare, not
a regular part of the game or world, but there if
the GM has the descriptive panache to make a
really memorable moment.

Sounds like a bully from public school. I kid, I kid. Thranduil of the woodland realm, while a bully, cashed in most of his experience points. He has high DX, ST, and IQ. But he didn't react too well to Thorns' "Id Insinuation."
Thank you for reading.
