Episode 1702: It's a Long Way That You'll Drop, If You Gonna Fail Your Roll

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

It was a little bit surprising to us during the writing session to discover that we hadn't used the word "quadratic" before in a comic.

[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.]

Crash! Tinkle tinkle...

Well, it's no longer a clean room.

And, panel 7: an infinite pit. There's always an infinite pit in Star Wars movies.

Never mind how you have an infinite pit on a water world. The same way that you get the waterfall in that earlier comic.

Remember how we determined that there was an in-canon character that had developed a new way of traveling through hyperspace involving some type of sand product (sand worm excrement perhaps)? Well, maybe we're seeing some type of test of that here. Maybe they're doing something to distort space and time such that there is an infinite pit without going into the water.

Math jokes aside, that's an awful lot of lights.

Transcript

Cassian: There's no way out of here.
[SFX]: Pow! {Bria shoots the window between them and the giant column containing the data crystals}
[SFX]: Kraash!! tinkle...
Bria: There is now. Let's go!
Bria: What's the Climbing check?
GM: 25 for the wall you're on. 12 for the data column.
Bria: We climb that!
GM: There's a 4 metre chasm between you and the column. It's a long way down.
Bria: Well if it's a long way down, that makes it easier to jump the distance!
Chirrut: Yeah, but it becomes harder to catch on at a quadratic rate.
K-2SO: {dead} Really you two, stop being such squares.
