Episode 202: Nine-Tenths


In many roleplaying games, non-humans have all sorts of cool racial abilities that make them so much more useful and fun than humans. To balance these, there are often some drawbacks.

If you ever go up against one of those non-humans: Use those drawbacks wisely.


Obi-Wan: What happened to Valorum?
Palpatine: He's disappeared; we've been trying to find him, but he's proving elusive as a phantom. I fear he may become a menace in the future.
Padmé: Rebel scum! And speaking of things that disappeared, we found that thing!
Palpatine: Thing?
Padmé: You know, that Lost Orb of Fantastic Irrelevance.
Anakin: I recovered it in space after I blew up the headquarters ship.
R2-D2: Hey, I did all the work!
Anakin: It would be nice if anyone could understand R2's beeping, wouldn't it?
GM: Yes. It would.
R2-D2: <grumble>
[SFX]: < beedle bading doing boodle doop poppity bing-be-dooby >
Palpatine: Well done, young man; where is it?
Anakin: Um... R2 still has it inside his body cavity.
R2-D2: Wired straight into my shock probe. Yeah baby!
[SFX]: < beep spip prowww doop whrooop bip >
Palpatine: You do realise you have to give it back?
Obi-Wan: To the rightful owners. The Gungans.
Palpatine: ... to the Gungans, of course.
R2-D2: When you pry it out of my cold, dead hands.
[SFX]: < squee boppy dip boodoot doop doodle >
Obi-Wan: (a) You have no hands. (b) You are cold. (c) Technically, you're not alive either.
