Ok, so it wasn't Dungeons & Dragons, but it was a tabletop RPG. I am running a futuristic cyberpunk campaign (which you will hear more about soon) loosely based around the game Dystopia, the book 1984, and my own experience in the corporate world. We're using the Savage Worlds system. Believe me, this was the best cameo ever.
The players were trapped. They were driving through the multi-storey city - more accurately described as cities stacked on top of cities - attempting to make their way to a doctor to obtain new identities (their personal ID's had been compromised due to 'crime', but more on that in a different post). So there they were, doing nothing wrong. Jacked a car, drove down to level 19. No problem. Continued to storey 18. No problem. Once they got to floor 15 / several hundred, the chaos became apparent. A rival gang member tossed a flash grenade in front of the PCs' vehicle, causing the driver to lose control and flip the top-heavy SUV. They were dazed, and by the time they had recovered from the shock and blinding flash 'nade, fully automatic weapons were firing upon the group. About 30 seconds later the group managed to dive into a neighboring vehicle, but getting away proved impossible, as the gang members quickly shot out the tires. I started playing this song from my laptop, and then said the following:
"You see a tall, muscular man sporting a 90's blonde mohawk and black shades. He wears a red tanktop underneath a brown trenchcoat, has a cigarette sticking out of his mouth, and wields a massive MG in his hands. He walks into the middle of the street, oblivious to the firefight, throws his cig to the ground, and says to the general public: 'It's time to kick ass and chew bubble gum. And I'm all outta gum.' DUN DUN - DUH, DUN DUN - DUH."
That's when Duke opened fire on the assailing gang, detonated some C4 on a rooftop (from which several gang members were firing), and walked away from the explosion, stating coolly: "Hail to the King, baby."
What do you think? What was the best experience with a video game character clone in other entertainment venues / tabletop games / charades / etc.?
