Episode 994: Space is Small. Really Small

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Moving so that multiple enemies end up pointing at each other (either with vehicles or weapons) is a classic ploy. If it's good enough for Bugs Bunny, it's good enough for a group of PCs.

You might take further leaves from old Bugs's playbook. Try the "Duck season, rabbit season" switcheroo when arguing or haggling with an NPC.

And if you get that one past a GM, try Point That Somewhere Else. Or Hammerspace.

Note: We tried to find the canonical identification of the Imperial captain visible in this scene, but couldn't determine it with any certainty. We think it's Captain Needa, but could be wrong.

Transcript

Han: I'll go find the coin. You can trust me, I won't lie about the result.
Leia: You go, big boy! Don't come back until you find it.
Chewbacca: Don't you think those star destroyers are—
Leia: A tad close together? Do you think we could—
Chewbacca: Indeed. Manoeuvring as we speak.
{Falcon flies between to closely spaced star destroyers}
[SFX]: Pow!
{star destroyers almost collide}
[SFX]: Pow! Pow!
Captain Needa: Moron! Where'd you get your licence? A space-cereal box?!
Captain of Other Star Destroyer: Why don't ya watch where you're going, ya dumbass!
Captain Needa: Well, uh, double dumbass on you!
Chewbacca: Fascinating.
