Episode 1682: Bequeathal Weapon

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Funnelling a large number of combat units through a narrow area is always problematical. Unless you're defending said narrow area, in which case you're in luck.

For this reason, always stay close to doorways when exploring dungeons and avoid any wide open spaces.

[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.]

I have to remind myself that this is Sally.

Also, Bria running around with two swords... for some reason I just never noticed them before. In this picture they stand out. Really stand out.

Is there no visual surveillance anywhere? No cameras? Swords like that would stand out as being very much "non-Empire", and any security guard watching this on normal security cameras would have raised the alarm.

And again, I am wondering how this could possibly have worked in the movie. I mean, the Empire in "Butch Cassian and the Sundance Droid" have already demonstrated themselves to be incompetent. Was the movie this incompetent as well?

Well, Bria is good at explaining things and K-2 is good at shooting things. So chances are at least one of those would work.

I'm curious how Jim plans on explaining it though? Was he tired and couldn't carry that gun anymore? Was K-2 going through gun withdrawal? Hmm...

Transcript

Bria: That went well!
Cassian: They shut the gate!
Bria: I stalled them long enough for most of a squadron to get through.
K-2SO: Are there any troops in the vault?
GM: No. It's like a bank vault. You don't put guards inside.
K-2SO: Okay. This is a choke point. I'll stay here in case any troops arrive. You guys go in.
Cassian: Are you sure?
K-2SO: Of course. My Imperial combat droid disguise is still working. But to make it really complete, I need a gun!
Cassian: Haven't you just proved you don't need a gun?
K-2SO: Awww.
{Cassian runs into vault}
Bria: Here, have one of mine.
K-2SO: What if Cassian finds out?
Bria: I know just how to explain it.
{K-2SO considers the gun in his hand}
K-2SO: Maybe I'll just shoot him.
