Episode 102: Sweet Sorrow

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

For some reason, game sessions always seem to end in the middle of a huge action scene, which then has to be picked up again next time the gamers meet. Of course the fact that relatively short action sequences tend to be played in excruciating detail with zillions of die rolls - compared to the boring "character social interaction bits" which are often glossed over in a few sentences - might have something to do with it.

For anyone who doesn't remember, we described dump stats in Episode #63.

Transcript

GM: Just a second... I'm still setting up the race map where we left off last session.
R2-D2: Where's the drama queen?
Obi-Wan: Um... I don't think she's coming. All that dice rolling probably put her off.
Qui-Gon: Oh. Huh.
Qui-Gon: I really thought she was enjoying herself.
R2-D2: Yeah, 'cause of our leet personal skills.
Obi-Wan: Speak for yourself. Charisma isn't my dump stat.
R2-D2: {under his breath} That'd be Intelligence, right?
GM: Jim, can you roll for Anakin from now on?
Qui-Gon: Oh. Okay...
{the race continues along a narrow canyon}
[SFX]: vreeOOOOW!!
[SFX]: zyeeOOOO!!
Anakin: {now being played by Jim} It's my mini-chlorines doing the hard work anyway.
