NEWS: ONE: Star Wars podcaster Marie-Claire Gould interviews Darths & Droids creators David Morgan-Mar and Andrew Shellshear in the current issue of What The Force? podcast. Also available on:

TWO: The Present Company comedy troupe have completed their run of Darths & Droids: The Phantasmal Malevolence, the stage show, at the Tampa Fringe Festival. Their adaptation of our first adventure was very well received, and won the prize for best production at its venue! We're happy to have authorised this adaptation of our work, and very pleased with how it turned out. You can see a recording of their preview performance here.

If you're going to be brazen in your "I'm here because I'm meant to be here" attempt, at least be really brazen. Oh, and carry a clipboard, that always helps.*

* Except in fantasy or historical games set before 1871.

[Reminder: Our guest commentators have not seen Rogue One. Part of the fun is seeing how their untainted impressions re-interpret the movie through the lens of our comic.]

Quick thinking from Jim there! It's almost like... he's done this... before...

Hmmm...

Jim's questionable past aside, Bria has probably very likely done this kind of thing before. Given that she was raised by Kyle and likely was a bit of a troublemaker. Still, you'd think that the Rebellion would have trained some of its members in breaking into Imperial facilities prior to sending them to break into an Imperial facility. After all, it's actually a very well organised and funded Rebellion, not a simple rag-tag bunch just trying to fight the good fight. The fact that a Rebel who's put in charge of a mission isn't able to quickly figure out a way to get into an Imperial facility isn't a great sign.

The sad thing is, this has a good chance of working.

Transcript

Bria: Holo-greeting attachments! Oh my. We definitely need access to your security control system to clear those out.
Imperial Gate Guard: {over radio} Iiii'm not sure if I have permission for that.
Bria: Maybe I should talk to your supervisor.
Imperial Gate Guard: Er...
Bria: Or you can try rebooting the server. That might fix the problem. And then your supervisor doesn't need to know about those holo-greetings. GM: <roll>
Imperial Gate Guard: Uh... okay.
Bria: Make sure you write down all the diagnostics. And we'll test the system's response to ship traffic.
Imperial Gate Guard: All right. Rebooting now.
GM: The energy gate turns off.
{they fly through}
GM: It comes back on after you fly through.
Bria: Okay, we'll go down to check the surface now. Looks like you are all clear, my friend!
Imperial Gate Guard: Phew, thanks. You just saved me from a lot of trouble!
