Episode 1656: Gifts Ungiven, or: Clear and Present Anger

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

[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.]

Sally said that out loud. While they had an open com link. Which means that the other people heard her statement.

A gift of bombs and guns. Even if they let them land, I can clearly see a large security detail to make sure the bombs and guns are handled properly. I mean, how much of an idiot would the Empire have to be in order to let someone say that they're bringing large supplies of bombs and guns and just let them land like a normal cargo shuttle with no guard?

Don't answer that.

I've known people who had to live with the struggle of a Christmas-time birthday. And while none of them turned out evil, they were certainly grouchy about it.

Once again I'm curious what the other "rolls" were here. How easy was it to land "already had a party" vs "his birthday is top secret information" or "he's philosophically opposed to parties"? I assume there was a small chance it would also work, but one thing that's always fun to roll is not just success and failure and such, but also what those successes and failures look like, even if in the end it's not overly consequential. That bit of randomness helps to shake up the store sometimes.

Transcript

GM: You descend past the tall, narrow tower.
Cassian: Land somewhere inconspicuous.
Bodhi: There's just a few sandy islands with landing pads. Nowhere else to land.
Cassian: Damn. We need clearance, or it'll look suspicious.
Bodhi: Shuttle SW-0608, requesting landing clearance.
Imperial Flight Controller: SW-0608, you're not listed on the arrival schedule.
Bria: Yeah well, you know how it is. The guys at the entry gate told us you'd assign us a landing pad.
Imperial Flight Controller: Oh those gate guys never tell us anything. What's your cargo?
Bria: Gifts and supplies for Commander Krennic's birthday party.
Cassian: You wouldn't want to spoil the surprise, would you?
GM: <roll>
Imperial Flight Controller: But we had one yesterday.
Bria: That was the decoy party.
Imperial Flight Controller: We even gave him a combined birthday/Life Day gift! Like every year!
Chirrut: Ugh, no wonder he's so evil.
K-2SO: I hope Krennic likes his gift of bombs and guns.
