Buffoon the Clown? Seems redundant. Like Shorty the Dwarf.

Yeah, that's about par for mocking names IMXP.

Since their previous meeting, Buggy just gave up and accepted that he'd be known as Buggy the clown.

Hostages are fun. Well fun in the sense that they are just as likely to make the situation worse for you if you misread the guy you’re trying to negotiate with.

I was playing a dakka focused Street Samurai in Shadowrun, and ended up making quite a few enemies within the Triads (or whatever the Shadowrun equivalent is, they were Chinese and had a bunch of martial artists). So they decided they needed to get rid of me. How? By attacking my Little Sister/Weapons Dealer.

Fortunately one of the party’s contacts was able to inform me that there were a bunch of Triads attacking my sister’s house/weapons depot (and a good few getting mulched by the passive defenses), so I head out to murder some face. Make a properly dramatic entrance by crashing a motorbike through one of the warehouse windows. Inside is a guy holding a knife to my unconscious sister’s throat. He starts going on some speech about vengeance and honor and whatever, while I start taking aim with my hand cannon. The guy laughs at me, saying that we’re standing in a warehouse full of explosives and ammo, do I really want to be firing off a gun in here?

I point out both in and out of character that my sister is a professional, and if she couldn’t store munitions so that they don’t all go off at the slightest spark, she wouldn’t be here right now.

And then I used my gun todisarm him. At the shoulder. Followed by giving him a new nickname, “Torso Boy”.

Long story short, don’t try taking a hostage with someone who can make you a quadriplegic without hurting your human shield. And learn to store your ammo properly

It's also very helpful to leave such people alive, because nobody wants to be "torso boy #2"

Admittedly the effect is lessened by the fact that in Shadowrun, limb loss is usually seen as an excuse to get a new kickass robot limb. So by leaving the guy to bleed out I was pretty much setting up a cybered up midboss down the road.

1st speech bubble probably should be "I've been dreaming".
