Episode 1649: Failure to Act is an Act of Failure

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

There's something about being a GM, watching a group of PCs make a plan, and knowing exactly where it ranks in the ordered list of good and relevant plans to bad and completely off-the-rails plans.

That expression you see on your GM's face when your group discusses your plan? She/he does have happier expressions. Maybe you'll see them some day.

[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.]

It's better to not even try to understand Jim's way of thinking. Just go with it. Clearly any attempts to contort your brain to match his is a dangerous activity.

Jim seems to have abandoned Bail Organa though. Will we get back to his super-cool action soon? There was that whole other half of his plan. But then, it's Jim. He may have already forgotten about poor old Bail.

That's ... I mean ... Except why ... Augh.

Didn't Jim's worst plan involve betraying a bunch of friendly Sand People?

Transcript

Bria: All right, we're all here, let's go!
Cassian: Go where? {they walk out of the hangar to the waiting ship they stole from Eadu}
Bria: There's a time for planning and there's a time for action. Now's the time for action.
Cassian: But we don't have a plan!
Bria: Well we should have thought of that when it was time for planning.
Chirrut: Aren't we going to Kamino?
Bodhi: I know where that is at least.
Bria: Cool! Make it so!
Cassian: Well, it's not the worst plan I've ever heard.
Chirrut: It's nowhere near the worst plan Jim's come up with.
Bria: True. But even that one worked! Our half-dreadnought still landed safely on Coruscant. So this one's sure to succeed!
Cassian: But... you didn't even... you weren't even...
Chirrut: I think Annie's brain just broke.
