Episode 972: Har-Pwned


Buttons are good. Buttons are lots of fun.

Especially the types with cryptic or even no labels at all, that are presented to player characters when they are locked in a room with water rising rapidly and spikes descending from the ceiling.

And then there's the type that are on the control panels of a foreign or alien vehicle when the PCs jump in and hope for a quick getaway from the hordes of hostiles chasing them.

Or the sort that simply says, "Don't press".

Oh yes. Buttons are excellent.


R2-D2: It's down! Troops, capture that camel!
Ledick Firest: Yah, fer sure. We can use it against the others.
Ledick Firest: Chaaarge!

Imperial Trooper 1: Well this is embarrassing.
Imperial Trooper 1: Can we stand up?
Imperial Trooper 2: I don't see a "stand up again" button.
Imperial Trooper 1: Um. What buttons are there?
Imperial Trooper 2: "Emit trumpeting bellow", "Acidic phlegm"... ah, here we go. "Rise triumphant".
Imperial Trooper 1: Hit it!
[SFX]: klik bzzzt
Imperial Trooper 2: Oh, it just opened the sunroof.
Luke: Sounds like my cue.
[SFX]: Pow! Pow!
R2-D2: Kaboom? There wasn't supposed to be a camel-shattering kaboom!
