Episode 1404: Won't Stand For It


Use game-term-speak when ostensibly in-character at your peril. NPCs might think you're raving mad.

Thinking of ways that NPCs can take game speak literally in-character and creatively misinterpret it is one of the more advanced and esoteric arts of GMing.


Han: Right, you, Ewoc, steal one of those bikes and ram the front door. Quietly.
Paploo: That doesn't seem very safe.
Han: You're in a war! And you're an NPC!
Paploo: How dare you! I'll show you! {walks off}
R2-D2: You sure told him.
[SFX]: < squee pating bading >
{Paploo steals the bike}
[SFX]: Vrrrm! Vrrrm!!
[SFX]: Zoooooom!!!
Paploo: {driving off} Non-Profit Company, my foot!
