Episode 920: Idle Hands


As players grow older and begin careers and families, inevitably the time available to get together and devote to gaming dwindles. So you need to take opportunities when they come. You can cram an entire run through a classic dungeon adventure into a weekend visit from a friend who has moved out of town. After all, if they wanted to see their family over that weekend, they would have stayed a few extra days.


Ben: Annie, nice to see you again. How's Los Angeles?
Annie: I'd have had better luck with my acting career in frakking Iceland.
Sally: You should follow her blog, Ben. It's great!
Jim: So we're here for three weeks. How about we dig out that game where I was that awesome guy who did all that awesome stuff?
Annie: The Lost Orb campaign. That was good.
GM: I'm glad you said that.
Pete: Yeah, it'll be nice to do something light for a change, after Ben's campaign.
Ben: Hey, that wasn't my fault.
Annie: {softly} The most interesting characters I've acted in two years.
Corey: Didn't we beat that one?
GM: You won the battle, not the war. I've... idly considered once or twice where it could go next.
GM: Here are your updated character sheets. And an opening synopsis:
Opening Crawl: Episode V - THE ENEMY LET SLIP. It is a dark time for the Rebellion. Although the Peace Moon has been destroyed, Imperial troops have driven the Rebel forces from their hidden base and pursued them across the galaxy. Evading the dreaded Imperial Starfleet, a group of freedom fighters led by Luke Starkiller has established a new secret base on the remote ice world of Hoth. The evil lord Darth Vader, obsessed with finding young Starkiller, has dispatched thousands of remote probes into the far reaches of space....
Pete: Ice world! <chug>
