Episode 416: Flying Flank Flunkies Fight Floating Fleet

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Giving players command of subordinate troops in a combat situation can be a good way of impressing upon them the seriousness of battle and the awful and contradictory responsibilities of commanders.

Or it can be a way of making them power-mad and willing to sacrifice hordes of underlings in order to secure the flimsiest of advantages.

Guess which is more likely.

Transcript

Anakin: So it's just the three of us against this huge fleet?
GM: Since Yoda and Padmé are elsewhere on Senate business, there are some clone trooper fighters flying with you.
Obi-Wan: Padmé wouldn't be flying a fighter in a huge space batt...
Obi-Wan: Oh wait. Never mind.
Anakin: Good. We can use the clones to our advantage.
Obi-Wan: We need a plan to get to Palpatine's ship.
Anakin: Clones, cover our flanks.
Clone Trooper 1: Yes, sir! What with?
Obi-Wan: Clones, guard our flanks.
Clone Trooper 1: Yes, sir! Um...
Obi-Wan: By destroying any threatening fighters or missiles.
Obi-Wan: With your lasers. Not by ramming.
Clone Trooper 1: Very good, sir. I'll take out the three thousand on our right.
Clone Trooper 2: I'll take the four thousand on the left.
Anakin: That leaves us with only eight thousand threats. Much better odds.
R2-D2: That sucks.
R2-D2: How come the clones get so many of my kills?
