Episode 2478: Me and All Mine Are Gonna Be Around


Massed ranks of minions are such a cool thing that you should try to used them in your games at some point.

Seriously. Just add them in wherever appropriate. Instant coolness.

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

Not having enough backup is a good point. An excellent point in fact. But I bet that there's just as many that were vanquished because they took the time to gloat. Not gloating is even one of the entries for crying out loud! It's going to be great when Hux takes a dive because he's gloating too much.

Hmm. Interestingly, DJ isn't in the scene. Did he manage to escape somehow or otherwise give everyone the slip without them noticing? Looking back, it seems DJ vanished after this comic. Perhaps he was so sneaky at falling off the precarious bridge, he didn't even get a note in the comic! With any luck, BB can stumble into DJ trying to hack a door again and then they can turn the ship's gravity off or something for a second rescue by the duo.


Admiral Holdo: How’s the hyperdrive going?
GM: Sluggishly warming up. Time feels... thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread.
GM: Back on the Supremacy, Ben, what are you doing with the captives?
General Hux: I have Phasma march them to a hangar deck, where massed ranks of hundreds of troopers await.
General Phasma: Do you believe in destiny? That even the powers of time can be altered for a single purpose?
General Hux: Oh, what are you on about now?
General Phasma: It has crossed oceans of time to find you.
{beat, Hux silent}
General Hux: Throw them to their knees!
GM: Troopers shove Finn and Rose to the deck.
Finn: Why all the troopers, Hux?
General Hux: Do you know how many evil leaders have been vanquished because they didn’t have enough backup handy?!
