Episode 1795: God Save The Ga-laxy


There is one form of competition that appears commonly in popular media but which is sadly under-utilised in roleplaying games: the dance-off.

Next time you have a villain confront the PCs in your game, have the evil no-gooder challenge them to a display of dance moves to determine who wins the encounter!

Imagine Batman engaging the Joker in a dance contest to decide if the citizens of Gotham City will live or die. Imagine James Bond busting some slick moves to demonstrate his suave superiority over some criminal megalomaniac. Imagine Gandalf shimmying and swaying and laying down the law to a bunch of orcs with their primitive uncoordinated boogie rhythms. Imagine The Doctor strutting his stuff to save the Earth from waltzing Daleks.

These images are all awesome, right?


Luke: Well, you're defeated now.
Gonzo: You have me right where I want me! Trust me. Angus!!
Angus McGonagle: This party's over.
GM: Angus gets going gargling the Gungan galliard.
Angus McGonagle: Gargle-argle-argle-aaaaaaar-gle-argle. Gargle-argle-argle-aaaaaaaargle.
GM: R2 is compelled to dance to the rhythm.
R2-D2: I am the dan-cing queen.
Chewbacca: Uh oh, I know what this is.
Chewbacca: We have to stop it. By counter-dancing.
{R2 and Chewbacca dance}
Luke: How is this stopping the crappy dancing??
