Episode 1625: K: thx bye

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Saving the others is almost always a good option for breakaway groups of PCs. Because it's almost always the case that anyone in a position to consider saving the others will in fact have some others that currently need saving. Simple law of averages and PC behaviour.

Essentially, once your party is split - and it will split at some point - the first thing you should think about is: "Maybe we should save the others."

This sort of thinking can save a lot of trouble just a little bit later on.

[Reminder: Our guest commentators have not seen Rogue One. Part of the fun is seeing how their untainted impressions re-interpret the movie through the lens of our comic.]

Their friendship continues I see.

Is Bodhi's face the face of "I can't believe I didn't consider that! Yes, let's go!" or is it the face of "Umm...yespleasedon'tshootme"?

Given his previous reaction to their initial "friendship", I'm going to say that he's at least a little bit afraid of K-2 (which is totally unwarranted, seeing as K-2 is so friendly), and it's likely the second one.

All you have to do is say no.

K-2SO, who mentioned the idea of stealing a ship, is by the damaged ship with a crate of weapons. I'm surprised that a ship weapon would be that small.

Bodhi is saying that he is looking for a ship; so far, he has only found the damaged one.

K was told, essentially, to find a ship; instead, he is still at the damaged one.

All Bodhi has to say is, "no, we should not save the others". He has plenty of reason to say this.

If it was Jim's character? I can actually see him saying no. But, it's a GM PC. And a good GM isn't going to abandon the entire party like that. So, you know 50-50.

Unfortunately, that would require them having found a space-worthy ship. So, more like 75-25.
