Episode 212: Duty is in the Eye of the Beholder


It's all well and good to give PCs dramatic last words when they're about to die. It works because the PCs are the central characters in the story. If you try to let NPCs have the same drama and dignity in death, you can guess who's going to overshadow them.


Cordé: I'm so sorry, M'Lady...
Padmé: Spit it out, woman! Who planted the bomb?
Cordé: I'm... not sure. I...
Padmé: Come on, you must have seen something!
Cordé: I've failed you, Senator.
Padmé: It was Bubble, wasn't it?!
Cordé: Um...
Padmé: He was your accomplice, wasn't he! Admit it!
Cordé: Er...
Padmé: Who else could have planted the bomb on board before we left Naboo?!
Captain Typho: She's dead, Senator.
Padmé: No!!! I haven't finished interrogating her!
Captain Typho: M'Lady, you are still in danger here.
Padmé: Don't be ridiculous. Now that they think I'm dead, I'm perfectly safe!
