Episode 1171: Circumspect's the Word


Family ties can be very strong, almost mystically so. And literally mystically so in a game with fantasy elements. Characters might get a sudden feeling of dread or gloom when a close family member is in danger, no matter where they might be at the time.

Imagine exploring the cellars beneath a dockside warehouse for clues to something, when one of the PCs suddenly gets a chill down their spine and the eerie feeling that their mother is in terrible danger back in their home village. What does the character do?


Darth Vader: Son.
Luke: Mother.
Darth Vader: I sensed a disturbance in the Force. You have made contact with your sister.
Luke: It was totally her fault! She kissed me!
Darth Vader: You disappoint me greatly.
Darth Vader: When you are returned to me, I will train you in the true use of the Force.
Luke: You don't even know the true use of the Force.
[SFX]: Pow! Pow!
Darth Vader: Those fighters are under Gunray's control. They will destroy you. Unless you return to me.
[SFX]: Pow! Pow!
Leia: Hey, Luuuke! Who ya talkin' to?
Luke: Multiple choice: (A) Your mother. (B) My mother. (C) Darth Vader. (D) All of the above.
