Episode 439: Mind the Gap


Acrobatics is something you should make the most of in a game. Very few people have the skills to do daring and athletic displays of acrobatics in real life situations, so this is a good thing to take advantage of in game rules. Games are generally designed for larger-than-life characters, since that's what's fun to play. It's not much fun playing someone who's no better than you in any way. You might end up playing a character who is less able than you in one or two ways, but that will usually be more than compensated for by a swollen list of superior abilities.

So make sure you use them! Have fun!


Droid 4: We sure hope TZ-4 shows up soon.
Anakin: Maybe he just needs to pull himself together.
GM: The lift rises rapidly towards you.
Anakin: Hey, I think your friend is trying to get your attention. Down there.
Droid 5: Really? {they look into the shaft}
[SFX]: leap... {Anakin leaps off the ledge across the lift shaft}
[SFX]: whirrr...
[SFX]: whirrr...
[SFX]: bounce... {Anakin bounces off the opposite wall of the shaft}
[SFX]: Crunch! {Lift destroys droids}
Anakin: {landing on top of lift} Oops, my mistake.
Remains of Droid 4: Roger rog... errr...
[SFX]: zzzt... zzzt...
{Anakin drops into lift, Obi-Wan wields sword}
Anakin: Whoa there!
Obi-Wan: Oh, it's you.
Anakin: We're on the same side, remember.
Obi-Wan: I thought you might have been a lift-droid union enforcer.
R2-D2: More like a lift/droid intersection enforcer.
