Episode 2068: There Are No Comets Seen


Retrieving weapons from a battlefield can be a good way to get yourself some cool new weapons. It can also be a good way to get: cursed weapons, cholera, damned for desecrating the dead, plague, outcast from society, tuberculosis, eaten by rats, smallpox, parasites, ...

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

The GM really likes Shakespeare I see. Of course that's already easy to tell by the 47 other references. While not my favorite author to read, there are a large number of quotes to pull out that I'd probably pull out for things like this. And stealing borrowing quotes like this makes for much easier prep work too.

Chewbacca has the right idea to go for the crossbow; that's the only legendary ranged weapon likely around. It's not a race when the race is already over. And as charismatic as Zeppo seems to be, there's no minions around to recruit to use all those blasters for him.

Also shown in this comic; the reason why you always put restraints on your prisoners. Whether picking the lock or picking up weapons from fallen enemies, keeping captives unrestrained is always asking from them to escape. Naturally there would be next to no plot if that happened, but Kylo Ren was already mentioned as not being one of those kinds of bad guys that have that kind of problem. Hmmm. Plot-wise, that must be why he had to chase Rey out into the woods, otherwise there'd be no prisoners at all.
