Episode 1636: A Plagiarism on Both Your Houses


Most of the dialogue and events in Darths & Droids is not really based on actual games we have played.

This strip, however, most definitely is.

[Reminder: Our guest commentators have not seen Rogue One. Part of the fun is seeing how their untainted impressions re-interpret the movie through the lens of our comic.]

A recheck of Episode 680 shows that Bail Organa is going to set up an ambush on Polis Massa. But Episode 679 tells us that Bria is also going to Toprawa, and will suicide to avoid capture. Finally, 681 tells us that that's four characters in four sessions.

If Jim starts running Bail Organa now, he won't be running Bria when she suicides.

Unless Bail Organa dies first, and Jim has to re-run Bria.

And by the way, what's with all the non-handicapped access compliant buildings? Has anyone ever heard of an elevator? We've seen lifts on space stations, why not on ground buildings? And if that building really is as tall as the tiny little stuff in the foreground makes it seem, wouldn't that building collapse under its own weight?

I better stop before I get into the heat death again.

Jim doesn't even remember Bail Organa? But he was so cool and edgy! Poor GM can't catch a break.

On the other hand, Bail Organa is now here! I also wasn't expecting to see him pop up, and now we get the Jim version too!

GM: {present day} Meanwhile, the PCs had arrived at the Rebel base on Yavin IV...
GM: You've arrived at the Rebel base on Yavin IV.
Bria: Cool! A Rebel-controlled world. I can play my other character!
Chirrut: What other character?
Bria: The one I generated. He's a rebel without a cause and has a really edgy and memorable personality. He's a Senator from Alderaan.
K-2SO: That's Bail Organa!
Bria: Ooh! That's a great name!
GM: Bail Orβ€” I was just describing the sort of thing you'd put in a character background, not giving you one!
Bria: But it was so good!
Bria: So anyway, this is my new character.
Bail Organa: I've got the bullets!
