Episode 360: Degrees of Freedom


When the PCs are in a dangerous situation through no fault of their own, it's reasonable to give them every break you can. Unfortunately, you can't control the dice.

We wanted to get the word tracheotomy into the strip, but unfortunately it didn't make the cut.


GM: The insects escort you over to a pillar of rock in the middle of the arena.
Padmé: I get a hairpin and stick it in my mouth.
GM: What?
Padmé: Obviously I have a hairpin, right? I'm a girl?
GM: Okay, sure.
Obi-Wan: Nice thinking, making sure you have a lockpick handy.
Padmé: Oh! That's an even better idea! I was going to fake a medical emergency.
Obi-Wan: O-kaay. I'll try Force Suggestion on the guards.
GM: Good idea, roll.
Obi-Wan: Ugh. 3. Okay, I unlock my manacles with Force Manipulation.
GM: Also a fine idea.
Obi-Wan: I'm guessing a 2 isn't good enough?
Anakin: Wow, bad luck.
Obi-Wan: On the bright side, if Pete was still GMing I'd be dead twice over.
