GM: The presence here is almost overpowering.
Luke: Is there someone else in here?
GM: A dark figure emerges.
Luke: Vader!
Darth Vader: {Annie} Well, well. A living Jedi. This can be remedied.
Luke: Actually... I'm just in training. Don't mind me.
GM: Vader approaches menacingly.
Luke: Wait. Ha ha! Yoda is just testing me. This is a manifestation of my paranoia.
Darth Vader: So, Yoda is training you.
Luke: Okay, Luke, just ignore him and he'll go away. La la la!
Darth Vader: Luke...
Darth Vader: Starkiller.

[SFX]: wmmm...
Darth Vader: Of course, a Jedi. My son would never have been killed by some mere ruffian.

Luke: Ha! How could you possibly know this if you weren't my subconscious?
Darth Vader: In that case you won't need to dodge this!
{Vader swings his sword}
[SFX]: Whooom!!
