Episode 2207: Be Careful What You Wish For

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Never be afraid to add something to your adventures on the fly, if the players ask if something is present. Especially if that thing is bad for them!

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

Oh neat; they managed to fit in a callback to the trench run! I am a bit confused why the fighters didn't start with that area as their initial attack, but perhaps the plan was to hit the visible base first as a distraction for the rescue team. I do think the lighting here makes this instance look a heck of a lot cooler than Episode IV or VI. This is a great example of how to update the visuals of something 30 years old. At least, that's how it seems right now; too many flashing or shifting lights could be overwhelming in the movie.

And Jim is suicidally over-confident as always. I wonder if Corey will figure out how to manage playing a character that's closely connected to Allan (who I keep thinking is named Poe), like how Ben had to figure out Chewbacca for Han Solo. I'm also hoping BB-8 can make it through without copying R2-D2's fate in the first trench run, but at least he'll turn out alright if he does.
