Episode 2182: Nobly Reload a Kin


Some requests are easier to fill than others. If you're going to make an escalating series of demands, make sure they're actually escalating for the person you're threatening.

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

Ahhh, The Princess Bride. Such a good source of quotable quotes and amusing situations. It's always good fun to reference favorite media, both as a player and a GM. Heck, if there are enough serial numbers filed off of characters well, it can make the game even more enjoyable to have those traits around. Sometimes it's even been a personal challenge for me to start with some character and then change them juuuust enough it's still possible to see the original. Seeing the Aha! moment in the other players when they figure it out later can add a lot to that session as a humorous moment.

And Mr. Noname is jumping back to Han Solo? If he's not dead in the next comic or two, it'll be a miracle. And he'll probably be completely dead too; no resurrections in this campaign, and no Force sensitivity to turn into a Force Ghost either. Hopefully Jim is fine with this outcome. The GM certainly will be given the last time Jim had multiple characters in the same place.


Kylo Ren: But now here you are.
(No Name): Hi.
Kylo Ren: Hello. My name was Greedo Solo. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
(No Name): Surely we can talk about this.
Kylo Ren: Offer me money.
(No Name): Yes!
Kylo Ren: Power, too, promise me that.
(No Name): All that I have and more. Please.
Kylo Ren: Offer me anything I ask for.
(No Name): Anything you want...
Kylo Ren: I want my father back, you son of a bantha!!
(No Name): Oh, is that all? Not a problem! I was him. I can be your father! I reclaim the identity of Han Solo!
Kylo Ren: That... really doesn’t help.
