Episode 2008: The Battle of Deep Helms


Encourage your players to write cool monologues and introspective speeches that they can give in suitable moments of down time.

Or heck, even during action scenes or combat.

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)



Frankly, I should probably have seen something like this coming. Kylo Ren has taken a lot of imagery from Darth Vader (evil, black, cloak and helmet, etc), and 30 years would be enough time to find lots of information about the Empire's leaders. But at the same time, Luke probably buried the remains of the funeral pyre if he wasn't extremely lax in the proceedings. So does this mean that Kylo's a grave-robber as well? Or perhaps the helmet was unearthed in the rest of the construction of the "Peace Moon", so Kylo took it.

And another what?? Helmet? Immortality Japor snippet? Remnants of other Sith lords? I think I remember seeing a cartoon/comic image of Darth Maul with robot legs back in high school or slightly after (possibly just before Disney bought Lucasfilm), so I guess that idea wouldn't be completely impossible for a canon return.

... I hope there isn't a skull still inside the helmet.

Kylo Ren: Can I do a Kylo scene? On my ship near the Peace Moon? I have a cool monologue.
GM: Sure, Sally. Go ahead.
Kylo Ren: Will this torment never end? Your face tasks me from beyond the grave.
Kylo Ren: Your sins cannot be forgiven, even unto death.
Kylo Ren: When I was but a boy you set me on this path of destruction.
Kylo Ren: The fists of rage have wrought terror and reaped retribution.
Kylo Ren: But you were torn from this world before I could find my peace.
Kylo Ren: How strange that your helmet should have survived the intense flames of the pyre.
{We see that Kylo is addressing Darth Vader’s burnt and twisted helmet}
Kylo Ren: But...
Kylo Ren: There is another.
