Episode 618: Paved with Good Intentions

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Convection Shmonvection. Apparently being a Jedi makes you immune to being roasted alive over an enormous lake of lava. We'll see more of this as the fight progresses.

The most realistic rule in a roleplaying game for characters interacting with lava is from Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition. If you touch lava and are not completely immune to fire, you die.

This is realistic.

Of course nobody in this scene actually touches the lava, but even being this close to it should be enough to blister your skin.
