Episode 570: Once More Unto the Breach


Reverse psychology is a good trick to try when players don't want to do what you want them to do. Such as remotely follow your game plot or stay within the areas you've mapped. As opposed to, for example, building a spaceship out of bamboo and blasting off for remote galaxies - when the game was intended to be restricted to a desert island in the Pacific. (I heard this actually happened once.)

Anyway, reverse psychology. We said it's a good trick to try. Don't blame us if it doesn't work. It might work on your kid sister, but most players are more sophist—

Actually, you know, it might work after all.


Yoda: Come on, my Wookiee friends! Your great leader has work to do!
Obi-Wan: Okay, that's good. You stay on Kashyyyk. We can save the Republic without your help.
Yoda: I don't have to listen to you, or anyone! You're the one stuck in a rut!
Obi-Wan: I'm doing medicine for my own reasons.
Yoda: I'm heading back to Coruscant, then. My leadership is needed!
Yoda: The Wookiees have almost won anyway. The droid infantry are no match for laser crossbows!
GM: Laser crossbows?
Yoda: Like at Agincourt. We're learning about that at school. And I'm Henry V!
Obi-Wan: They were longbows.
Yoda: Laser longbows would just be silly, silly!
R2-D2: She has a point.
