"Don't say the bad word!" AKA Redcaps

So, if you were going to have Redcaps show up in a fight, what would you choose as the 'bad word'?

Just curious (and also fishing for sadistic options).

    Have you consulted this list of the most commonly used words in the English language?

    Other sneaky options might include the names of the characters or players, common actions taken at the table ("I swing my axe"; "I attack him", "I cast magic missile", etc.), question words (who, what, when, where, why, and how), or expletives.
  • Thank you. I ended up using "yes" and "no", which led to a most surreal session where my players stopped talking and started gesturing their actions.
