Episode 1617: Adding Insult to Ninjary


If one of the PCs in a game has a lifelong goal, a thing they want to achieve, something difficult but which drives them in their quest for adventure - try having the bad guy do that exact thing, while they watch from the sidelines, unable to do anything.

Maybe not too often though. That might be classified as cruel and unusual punishment.

[Reminder: Our guest commentators have not seen Rogue One. Part of the fun is seeing how their untainted impressions re-interpret the movie through the lens of our comic.]

Wow, the Rebels sure got there fast.

I'm not so sure how necessary the element of surprise really is here, considering the size of the Rebel cavalry. It's hard to tell exactly but it looks like they have at least 10 ships? That should be enough to just carpet bomb the place while Cassian et al make their escape, with K-2 laying down some good "cover fire".

Everything is according to the plan/script. All we need now is "just leave us, we'll find another way off" and we'll have a full bingo.

Krennic: And now I'm done, Galen, you've served your purpose too.
Bria: No! I wanted to kill him!
GM: Suddenly, a squadron of Rebel fighters screams across the sky...
[SFX]: vreeow... vreeow...
GM: ... and blasts the landing platform.
[SFX]: vreeow... Pow! Pow!
[SFX]: Kaboom!
Cassian: What? Where the hell did they come from?
K-2SO: I called in backup! Like you asked!
Cassian: That's not what I meant!
[SFX]: vreeow... vreeow...
Chirrut: All things considered, I'd opine that we've consumed our element of surprise.
