Episode 364: This Is A Spinal Trap


And here we have the obligatory shirt-ripping scene. I guess they really didn't have the same budget for Padmé's costumes in the second film that they did in the first.

Actually, in the entire Star Wars saga, the only character really seen without a shirt is Chewbacca...

EDIT: Yeah, yeah, okay: Jabba, C-3PO, Max Rebo, Sy Snootles, the rancor keeper, the rancor itself, the wampa, Luke in the bacta tank, and technically Leia in the slave costume. We'll just stop making any generalisations from now on...


Padmé: I climb the chain to the top of my stone pillar. 12.
GM: As you reach the top, the nexu—a savage manticore-like beast covered in spines—aims a claw at you.
[SFX]: Snaaarrrl!
Padmé: I twist around to evade! 5!
Obi-Wan: Uh oh. You'll probably get knocked right off the column.
[SFX]: Snaaarrrl!
GM: It rakes a claw across your back.
[SFX]: Rriiiip!
GM: Its huge, open maw is right beneath you. Roll to maintain balance.
Padmé: 7!
Padmé: Is it exhaling? That might help hold me up.
GM: Just good enough.
Anakin: Hmmm.
Padmé: Phase 2 complete! Now for the easy part: mount the beast!
GM: Um... {close-up of the nexu, showing the long, sharp spines on its back}
