Episode 128: Unrailistic


Readers of Irregular Webcomic! know that there are a million and one things we could pick on about the unrealism of the planet-wide city that Coruscant is canonically supposed to be. We don't want to dwell on the same issues ad nauseam here, so we're confining ourselves to a couple of choice elements. It is the sort of thing that Ben would pick apart, though.


Obi-Wan: How high up is this landing platform?
GM: A couple of kilometres.
Obi-Wan: Why are there no railings?
R2-D2: It's a necessary element of the genre.
R2-D2: {aside} Like the bumbling apprentice archetype.
Jar Jar: Oooey! Mesa stays away from da edge! Mesa doesn't wants ta fall!
Obi-Wan: How do these buildings even stay up? They should collapse under their own weight. The whole planet should just cave in on itself.
GM: Uh... There's... field generators that hold the buildings up.
Qui-Gon: I'm going to drop a coin off!
R2-D2: We have no money, remember?
Obi-Wan: I can think of something else we could drop off...
GM: As a side effect, they slow down any falling object to a safe speed.
Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan: Lame.
