Episode 397: One Sword, Two Sword, Red Sword, Blue Sword


Hitting your own weapon is always fun. When running a game, always make sure you have a table of cool results that can happen on critical combat failures that produce various forms of weapon damage.

About the only thing better is the table for hitting yourself.

Obi-Wan: You're not ready for two swords. It's not safe!
Anakin: I don't care. He must die.
Obi-Wan: Remember your training! Don't get drawn into the Dark Side.
Anakin: I Force Pull Obi-Wan's sword and charge Dookû before he zaps me again.
