Episode 33: An Even Bigger Fish

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Didn't we just go through this? Seriously, in the movie, there's the whole "There's always a bigger fish" gag - one giant fish grabs the bongo, and another comes along and eats it - then they lose power and Obi-Wan fixes it. And then they go through the whole thing again. Another giant fish chases them, and they escape by the fortunate intervention of a fourth giant fish.

If this sort of thing happens in your game, you'd be well justified in calling your GM uncreative. Or that he needs better random encounter tables.

Obi-Wan: Sally!
