"Tel a Story: Not "A," but "THE""

There are some things that transcend being lumped into a group, and just naturally end up being referred to as singular entities.

Share a story about a person, place, or item (or... anything!) that you or your group ended up consciously or unconsciously using the "THE" honorific for.

"The Knarloc"

We've been playing a Dark Heresy campaign. Following an incredibly poor choice to split the party, my group wound up getting onto the hold of a smuggling ship. Cut off from the rest of the group, we were forced to transverse the bowels of the ship where the laws of causality had begun to break down.

Trapped without resupply, or food and water, we were forced to scour it while dealing with rooms made of pure fire, and angry tenatacles. We were desperate to find Hyrdoponics, where we might get some water and food. But we kept running into notes marked "It's the Knarloc!!!" so we kept avoiding them.

Finally, we are close to out of ammo, starving, and our best shot has lost an eye. We go down a hallway, and there's a demon. We decide we don't want a fight so we run past it, get to the next room and it's...The Knarloc. And also Hyrdoponics, the room we were looking for.

Was this on board the Occurrence Border? Sounds very similar to a situation from one of Shoggy's storytimes on /tg/, "The All Guardsman Party"

Which is a good one, to be fair.

Have any other GMs takes inspiration from P. T. Barnum? This sounds a lot like his "This way to the Egress" ploy.

"The Masterball"

The main campaign I've been playing is in the Pokemon Tabletop United system,or PTU. In PTU there are all manners of fancy types of trainers you can be, from being able to change your pokemon's abilities and nature to even being able to use powerful pokemon moves yourself. I decided to be silly and instead chose to be crafting focused, specifically crafting all varieties of pokeballs. This silly gimmick has led to the key item of basically the entire plot. The Masterball.

Early on, we were given a chance to see what we thought out of character was just a masterball, but we learned that in the setting this was the one and only masterball. It was on a touring display that just so happened to be passing by. Needless to say my character sprang at the chance to see what in his eyes was the epitome of his craft, but once we were inside he was very disappointed by what he saw as he quickly noted that it had no actual mechanical components and was nothing more than a shell. Whilst my character tried to get a refund, despite being assured that is was indeed the real deal, the real fun began. A group of child terrorists broke into the exhibit, took everyone hostage and escaped with the masterball in their possession. As we weren't exactly heroes, we decided it wasn't our business, let it be and went on our ways.

Time passed as we followed the gym circuit, the goal of the majority of the group. (My character took the challenge for the money as he didn't care about the battling itself) Eventually we ended up running into the group that stole the masterball and it turned out they were actually rather nice people. We stayed with them for the night, but as we left one of the party members decided he wanted to try and steal it. He miraculously pulled it off and decided the first thing he'd do is see if anything was in the masterball. Out from it came not one, but two legendary pokemon which began to destroy the encampment. We ran.

Now this is when it stopped being "the masterball" and became "The Masterball".

What followed has involved being magically marked for trying to pry it open, a divine law that punishes us for speaking about The Masterball to people who don't know about it, two kids from a cult trying to take it from us, and a girl who was made a ghost by the god that made The Masterball joining the group. Needless to say we are now a bunch of overly paranoid idiots who just want to finish the league while keeping this insanely powerful item out of other peoples' hands as we know it can only end poorly.

Also there's probably an evil science group experimenting on people who framed the group of kids into looking like terrorists when they're just trying to stop them. Fun stuff.

"The Blood Mage"

Our party got tasked by a mysterious dude to go and find this magic ring.

A long session later we finally get there. By this point, we've deduced the ring is Very magic and the dude is Very evil so we decide to not give him the ring.
So we get the ring and the dude, named Achenar, shows up.
"Give me the ring." he says.
"No." I say back.
"Die" he says, as we roll initiative.
We fought him for about an hour. At one point we ripped off one of his arms, yet he still kept fighting. It was at that point we all remembered it was a Ring of Wishing. We wished he would no longer be a problem, and that seemed to work.






A few sessions later we talked to a monk who breifly mentioned a new disciple he briefly taught. Interestingly, this disciple was missing an arm.

The Battousai. My friend actually used a blue speckled white dice set that he referred to a few times as the Battousai. And the more he did, the more they seemed to become pointedly lethal. He'd cry out "BATTOUSAIIIIII!" before a roll and - somehow - end up defying incredible odds to kill one of us. There was even a CR nothing kobold with a spear that crit and rolled a perfect execution on a crit table to apparently gouge through someone's throat at mostly full HP to do overwhelming damage. When his campaign finished, he gave them to one player who left to move out of state.

When the player came back, I commissioned a giant cake of fondant and molded rice krispy edges in the shape of the d20. It's still the most famous dice set from my table's legacy.

Family friend had a pizza pan-thingy. the one you use to put pizza in and out of the oven. I think someone else had made the thing for him since they threw so many parties and made a LOT of pizza.

It had a pizza'd pun name of a famous sword at first.. then it survived the kitchen blowing up -exploding can of buffet pan fuel (Sterno?) with only a few scratches.

he renamed it to something German (no dea how to spell or pronounce) or such for 'unbreakable'

and six, maybe 8 months later used the pan to subdue a guy who attacked another guest with a knife.
