Episode 1627: Powboys and Ninjians

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

How likely is it that the former enemy NPC who has seen the light and come over to the side of the adventuring heroes will actually turn out to be a mole and stab them in the back and betray them at the first good opportunity?

That should correlate precisely with how much the PCs trust them...

[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.]

Glad to see Bodhi's come around. That means he's definitely available for Jim to hop over to, any time he wants. It also means he's a very reasonable person. Hopefully someone who can back up Cassian when things get out of hand.

Pete seems to have missed the ball somewhat on his character build here. It looks like this campaign will have a fair amount of open air fights where ships will be taking the majority of kills, so the whole blind monk with a bow thing might not actually be super effective. Hopefully they have to infiltrate a building with a roof soon, so he can slaughter a bunch of people.

Now, the party's all back together and they're on a ship. This looks good, but what is their plan? Is this a trip to the water world? Regroup at the Rebel base to compare intel? I have a feeling Cassian's going to have to do a lot of convincing to get the group to do anything other than rush into another hostile situation, but I think regrouping would be the best thing right now.

So the party survived. And the party is starting to complain about kill stealing.

Kill stealing complaints tend to just escalate (in my experience). This is the sort of thing that can tear a party apart.

And we have a TPK coming up. I'm now wondering if it will be a self-inflicted TPK.

K-2SO: Well, we found it, really.
Cassian: Bodhi! You're here too!
Bodhi: You may be a bunch of amateur revolutionaries, but you're actually trying to do the right thing.
Chirrut: I could have mowed them down with my bow!
Bodhi: And the Empire... isn't what I thought.
Cassian: Well. Welcome to the Rebellion.
Bodhi: Your foes are my foes.
Chirrut: Great! Someone else who can steal my kills!
