Episode 1598: Rook to K-2


Be careful making assumptions about the allegiances of people you meet. The safest thing is to assume everyone is an enemy, although this does make it somewhat difficult to make friends and allies.

For an interesting roleplaying exercise, try assuming everyone you meet is a friend! People on the streets who draw knives, the giant rat-men in the sewers, that friendly looking vampire...

We guarantee your GM will love this one!

[Reminder: Our guest commentators have not seen Rogue One. Part of the fun is seeing how their untainted impressions re-interpret the movie through the lens of our comic.]

I just realized that K-2SO is calling himself a "Defective Droid". Would you want to make friends with a droid that is defective?

The screenshots of Bria in this scene actually make her look like a person. It's like there is actually some uncertainty in her, some humanity behind the face. Previously, she didn't really look like a real person. There wasn't much emotion that I saw besides "let's just get this done."

If someone asks you if you want to be friends, right after saying that they like shooting things, you should probably say "yes". You should especially say "yes" if that someone is a combat droid who can apparently ignore loyalty protocols.

And really, who wouldn't want to be friends with K-2?

A quick note on how Pete introduced his character: When he said "monk at-large", I'm assuming he means that he's not tied to any specific order, and not that he's currently a criminal on the run? I suppose he could be both?

Bria: Hi everyone, I'm Bria!
Chirrut: We know...
Bodhi: I didn't!
Cassian: All right, introduction time. My name is Cassian Andor. This is Bria Tharen.
Chirrut: Chirrut Îmwe, monk at large, and my platonic companion Baze Malbus.
K-2SO: And I'm K-2SO.
Bodhi: Bodhi, Bodhi Rook. Imperial pilot. You're an Imperial droid? Maybe we can be friends.
K-2SO: Oh, no, I defected. I hate the Empire. But we can still be friends. I like shooting things. Do you want to be friends?
Bodhi: Uh... sure...
