Episode 1468: He Leaves Me in a Cool, Cool Sweat

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Love is an important motivation in real life and in traditional fiction, but often gets short shrift in roleplaying games behind other, more self-focused, motivations such as greed and powerlust and the quest for better equipment.

So as a GM you can mess with your players' heads by having an NPC motivated purely by love for another person, sacrificing everything else in their yearning for true love. And as a player you can seriously mess with your GM's head by doing the same thing.

Transcript

Anakin's Voice: That trinket? Meaningless!
Darth Vader: You've forgotten what is truly important.
[SFX]: wwmmmm...
Anakin's Voice: Power is all that's important. Dominance! It doesn't matter how.
Anakin's Voice: The Emperor understands.
Palpatine: I have seen the dark universe yawning; Where the black planets roll without aim.

Luke: Yeah, one Peace Moon at a time.
