I really like this part of the film, but, as for a role-playing game, it really would be out of place.

Originally, I had Valeria not say anything at the end. This left my "test audience" (thanks, David!) confused. So, here we are.

Update: Someone pointed out that, when Valeria strikes out with her sword, you can spot her bra under the armor. Considering that the filming location was really cold (stills of the location show Valérie Quennessen, who plays the princess, wrapped up in blankets), and steel isn't renown for its warmth, I don't blame her.

Comments? Throw your words at the forum thread and see if it sticks.

Transcript:

Scene: Rexor attacks Conan.
DM:Tom, are you sure you can keep going?
Rexor (as Thulsa Doom):Yeah, I'll be alright.
DM:We can stop here, if you need a break.
Rexor (as Thulsa Doom):No no, but, um, where were we?
DM:Rexor had knocked Conan down.
Rexor (as Thulsa Doom):Oh, right. { Raises sword above his head. } So, I put everything into my next blow - all my anger, all my hatred, all my frustration at my mother for kicking me out of the house. Everything! Natural twenty!
DM:Um...
Rexor (as Thulsa Doom):Oooo, that's so therapeutic!
Conan:Oh, my.
DM:Your hate-filled sword falls towards Conan's head... { An off-screen sword stops Rexor's blow. } but it's stopped by another sword!
Subotai:Don't look at me.
DM:It's Valeria! She holds back Rexor's sword with her ethereal presence!
Scene: Glances between a speechless Rexor, Conan, and Valeria.
Valeria (as DM):Do you want to live forever?
