Episode 580: P4wned


When dealing with Byzantine bureaucracies in a game setting, it's often best to take a ... flexible approach.

It works with telcos too.


Anakin: The Trade Federation were attacking Naboo. I'll track down Gunray there.
Padmé: Are you sure? I can come too.
Anakin: Trust me.
{beat, shot of Anakin walking away}
Anakin: And on that note... sorry guys, I'm going to have to leave early tonight. I have some apologies to make to my former boss.
Padmé: I'll go with you.
Anakin: No, that's...
Anakin: Actually, yes. Thank you, Jim.
C-3PO: I hope they're okay.
R2-D2: Okay, with those two out of the way, time to focus on the most important character in this story. What's happening with my dreadnought?
GM: Ah. Yes. You've successfully navigated the bureaucracy, and secured full rights to the Invisible Hand. You now have the title deed.
R2-D2: All right!
GM: Also, the owner has messages from sixteen different creditors. And a summons to appear in court on seven counts of malicious property damage, occasioning death.
R2-D2: Right. I hear Naboo is nice this time of year. And Anakin definitely needs a superior navigator to get into that war zone undetected.
GM: So let me get this straight. You're doing what the other characters want to do?
R2-D2: Maybe Nute will buy my ship. I hear he's into trade.
