Episode 362: Do Not Taunt Happy Fun Dice


There are times you really want to help the PCs out. At times like this, you'll listen to any half-baked justification for doing something bizarrely improbable.

The problem with this is that it can set a dangerous precedents.


Obi-Wan: All right, those didn't work... I try Force Pull to grab the keys off the guard's belt.
GM: That could work. Roll.
Obi-Wan: 5.
GM: Do you want to use your Fate Manipulation reroll?
Obi-Wan: 3 again, oh man.
Obi-Wan: Okay, I try Force Levitation to lift the pillar out of the ground.
GM: Um... it's pretty heavy.
Obi-Wan: The Force is generated by midi-chlorians, right? The pillar is only about an order of magnitude bigger than me. But they're already affecting things 6 or 7 orders larger than themselves. So the size shouldn't matter.
GM: Hmm. Okay, that's cool.
Obi-Wan: I don't suppose a 6 will do?
GM: Not on a d20.
Obi-Wan: Darn, that was my best roll yet.
Padmé: Right. I'm getting out of these chains. You guys taunt the beasts.
Obi-Wan: Hey, beasts! Come and get me! I'm rolling really badly!
GM: Make a Taunt roll.
[SFX]: {the acklay lunges at Obi-Wan} Ryyaarrrk!
Obi-Wan: 20. Whaddya know.
