Episode 349: Consequences of Suboptimal Outcome of Previous Combat Sequence

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

It's always a good idea to have a plan. Even if it turns out to be a really bad plan.

Then you can blame the plan when everything goes wrong.

Transcript

Pete: It looks like it's up to the astromech droid to save the day.
Pete: If only everyone were as loyal as R2-D2.
Pete: Maybe then fellow PCs wouldn't get abandoned to their fates, poisoned by a pirate ninja, and left to die.
Padmé: For the last time, Pete, he was the good guy.
Pete: The Prince hired us to do a job!
Padmé: What sort of Prince hires mercenaries to stage a fake kidnapping in order to win public sympathy for war against the neighbouring kingdom?
Pete: Well it only went screwy because you decided the best way to fake it was to actually kidnap the Princess!
Padmé: You didn't like the plan?
Pete: Comrades should stand by each other in adversity. I didn't expect Ben to do anything. But I thought you were my friend.
Padmé: It's nothing to do with that! Look, we were chumps doing the bad guy's dirty work! We had to get the Princess back!
Pete: Your crucible moves up in the production line. It's right under the steel pourer.
Padmé: The pirate ninja was the Hero! There was nothing else we could do!
Pete: Oh dear. Any last words before you get encased in steel?
{beat}
Padmé: I'm sorry.
