Episode 2053: He's Crazy Like a Fool; Yanni Cool


Technological missile weapons tend to be very dangerous, so the best thing to do is not get hit by them at all. This is where cover comes in.

Those who cower in fear live to cower another day.

But they won't look as cool doing so.

Chewie's arm got better pretty quickly if he can toss rubble and use his laser crossbow again. Hm, and the other two haven't come out of the buried basement yet either. Yanni and Chewie providing a distraction for escape perhaps? Finn should be able to hold his own and could probably have come out with these two for more firepower, but maybe he said he's acting as Kanata's bodyguard?

Cover is good for being not dead. Yanni seems like they want to just fight and look cool doing so, and running for cover is definitely not that cool. At least, ruined bar tables/chairs/ceiling don't make for cool cover. Wrecked space fighters, dead enormous beasts, and other giant things like that? Those make for cool cover. Especially if you or another party member made it cover in the first place. I hope Chewie shoots down at least one of the fighters.


GM: <roll> Chewie, you toss a chunk of rubble aside, making an opening to the surface.
[SFX]: Boom!
GM: Explosions rock the remains of the bar and troopers pick off remaining patrons.
Yanni: Fire!!
[SFX]: Pow! Boom!
[SFX]: Pow!
[SFX]: Pow! Boom!
[SFX]: Pow! Boom! {Yanni picks off three troopers while crossfire rages around him}
Chewbacca: I say, do you think we should seek some cover?
Yanni: The coolest fighters don’t need cover!
[SFX]: Pow!
Chewbacca: The non-dead ones do.
[SFX]: Pow!
Yanni: Hmm. There’s some over there. C’mon!
Chewbacca: Granted that striding boldly across open ground adds somewhat to your cool, it does rather threaten to subtract from your non-deadness.
