Episode 889: Mincing Words


If all the players refer to something in your carefully crafted campaign by some preposterously wrong name, despite you reminding them repeatedly what the real name is supposed to be...

... you may as well just give in. It's a losing battle. It'll save trouble all round.

Author note: The positions of the diacritic marks on the foreign text may not exactly match between the comic and the transcript you see below. This is an artefact of how the font is rendered in web browsers; the actual character entities used are the same. The diacritics form combining characters, which Photoshop has rendered correctly in the image, but which are poorly supported by most web browser fonts. We could set a fallback font of Code2000, which does render the text correctly in browsers, but as far as we know almost nobody actually has the font Code2000 installed, and it's not worth us changing our entire website coding just for this one strip.


Del Goren: ಸ್ಕ್ವಾಡ್ ನಾಯಕರು, ನಾವು ಸಂಕೇತಗಳ ಒಂದು ಹೊಸ ಗುಂಪು ಎತ್ತಿಕೊಂಡು ಬಂದಿದೆ. ವೈರಿ ಹೋರಾಟಗಾರರಾದ ನಿಮ್ಮ ದಾರಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಬರುತ್ತಿದೆ.
C-3PO: "Squad leaders, we've picked up a new group of signals. Enemy fighters coming your way."
Luke: What sort of fighters?
Han: They'll be PIE fighters like we destroyed before. Don't worry, kid, it'll be a piece of cake!
Luke: PIE fighters?
C-3PO: It stands for Plasma Ion Engines!
GM: No, no, they're called—
R2-D2: Too late, it's canon. They're P.I.E. fighters now.
GM: Well that's a crumby name.
R2-D2: Nice pun. I'd bite, but I can't think of a topper.
C-3PO: Ice cream!
