Episode 1706: Fallen So Far


The morally conflicted hero is another classic character archetype. Just be careful to keep the conflict mostly internal, or it can cause conflict within the party as people argue over the right way to do the right thing. Although this can also be fun if the players are into it.

[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.]

The layout of this comic is confusing. It looks like you first read the upper left panel, then all of the right side, then the last 2 panels on the left.

Meanwhile, I thought I saw the bottom of that shaft 2 or 3 comics ago. Why is it now infinite again?

Cassian is complaining about killing someone? Has he seriously been nonviolent this whole movie so far? Doesn't he realize that he is in a Rebellion? Isn't the whole idea of going into a mission like this recognizing that there will be a need to kill people?

Sometimes though, I have to wonder. Is this comic supposed to be the real life of these people? Or is it just fantasy?

(I suppose the big blast of dirt on the Jedha plain could be considered the landslide).

[SFX]: Pow! Pow!
[SFX]: Pow!
GM: You hit and stun the troopers... <roll>...
[SFX]: Pow!
GM: One falls into the shaft.
[SFX]: AAAAAAAAARRRRRrrrrrgggggghhhhh!!!...
Cassian: Sweet Jatayus, what have I done?
Bria: You're defending us! It's the right thing to do.
Cassian: But... I just killed a man.
Bria: You're being too harsh on yourself.
Cassian: Pulled my trigger, now he's dead...
Bria: We can't see the bottom of this shaft. So he's probably not even dead yet.
