Episode 1749: Sunrise, Sunset

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Retelling stories of adventures and campaigns past is one of the great pleasures of roleplaying.

Listening to them may or may not be, depending on the skill of the tellers. Tales told about your games to other people are often called "war stories" in the jargon, and their reputation is decidedly mixed. If you're going to do this, it's probably better to stick to just the highlights.

Or even better, invite the listener to sit down right now for a game with you instead.

[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.]

Han's backstory!

Well, first we have the star destroyer. They managed to go 10 rounds without being destroyed. And the power of the tiny ship is insignificant compared to the power of the star destroyer's shield generator.

Still, this does imply that we will hear Han's backstory, and that the next movie they tackle will be Solo.

Managing to go until 5 AM, or whenever the sun comes up, and only starting to get sleepy? Corey must still be relatively young. I know I can't do that anymore.

Transcript

GM: All right, ten combat rounds later, you've got the star destroyer down to 99.94% shield strength.
[SFX]: Pow! Boom! Pow!
Captain Antilles: It's working!!
{the long flashback of Jim, Sally, Pete, and Annie telling the story of the Rogue One adventure to Ben and Corey ends}
Sally: Uh, guys, the sun is coming up.
Corey: Wow. Yeah, this is great but... I'm getting sleepy.
Annie: And we have the wedding rehearsal in a couple of hours.
Jim: But I haven't told you about the most awesome bit! I got killed by Vader! Again! In person this time!
Ben: And that's why you were still creating a new character when I rejoined the game?
Jim: Yeah, I should tell you about Han's backstory some time.
Pete: Oh come on. Nobody wants to hear about that.
