Episode 30: Unarmed and Delicious

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Seasoned roleplayers simply don't show any fear when confronted with giant monsters and other dangerous things that should cause any real person to quake in their boots. As a game master, it can be difficult to generate a suitable atmosphere of tension during situations like this.

But then some player can make an innocent out-of-context comment that will cause everyone to react in genuine alarm. Yeah. We're not prepared to go quite that far with Jar Jar.
