Episode 33: An Even Bigger Fish


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: I take evasive action!
GM: It chases you!
Jar Jar: Don't worry, there'sa even bigger fish that eats these ones!
Obi-Wan: Now what are the odds of—
Qui-Gon: I cast a spell to summon a bigger fish!
GM: Like what?
Qui-Gon: Summon Bigger Fish!
GM: Words to the effect of "no".
Obi-Wan: I have Force Guidance. I use that to guide us to safety. 11.
GM: Marginal Success. Hmmm.
GM: A bigger fish appears in your path, jaws wide open!
Qui-Gon: Cool! I should use that spell more often.
Obi-Wan: Hard a starboard! I roll a 15 for Evasion. Do we escape?
GM: Yes; its jaws barely miss you, and clamp onto the other fish.
Jar Jar: And there'sa even BIGGER fishes that—
Obi-Wan: Sally!
