Episode 103: No Plan Survives Contact with a Jedi


Pete has played games with Jim many times before. He knows what he's capable of. He just likes to make sure everyone else in the game is fully aware of the intricacies of Jim's plans.


{Anakin's pod thunders across the stark desert landscape of Tatooine}
{the crackling arcs of energy between the engines writhe with a purple electric life as Anakin hurtles into a dark underground chamber}
[SFX]: zttt zttt zttt
{the racer behind Anakin makes a fatal miscalculation and slams into a stalagmite near the cave entrance, the pod flowering into a vast orange fireball as Anakin races ahead of it, beating it out of the cave by a fraction of a second}
[SFX]: fwacKOOOOM!!
R2-D2: Did you happen to do anything else to ensure the outcome of the race?
{Anakin rips across the sandy desert plain, slowly gaining on Sebulba's pod, and leaving a streaming trail of dust in the air behind them}
[SFX]: vzoooo! vzzoooo!
Qui-Gon: Early on I ripped out some wiring and stuck a spanner in the pod engine.
Jar Jar: Mesa fixed those!
Qui-Gon: And I ran into that Sir Bullbar guy on the starting grid and cast Suggestion on him to sabotage Watto's pod.
[SFX]: Pow! {a Sand Person fires at Anakin's pod}
[SFX]: Ktchang! {the shot scores a hit on the pod's chassis}
{the pods hurtle through a jagged canyon}
[SFX]: zeeooowww!
R2-D2: Anyone happen to fix that?
GM: Heh heh heh...
R2-D2: You've really outdone yourself this time. That's a truly astoundingly... intricate plan.
Qui-Gon: Thank you.
R2-D2: With almost no detail overlooked.
