Episode 2090: Return of the Living Dad

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Occasionally a group of PCs will capture an enemy and decide that they can get some useful information through interrogation. A thing to remember about interrogation is that it's extremely unreliable. The interrogatees often just make up whatever they think the interrogators want to hear. (e.g. Leia lying to Vader in Episode IV.)

If your skill resolution system indicates that an interrogation fails, don't just have the captive clam up. Have them sing like a bird - just saying anything and everything that they think the PCs are keen to hear.

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

Presumably Kylo still wants that map in the movie, but commenting on Rey's parents as part of the interrogation? I guess I can see that, at least for Princess Leia who's related to Luke and appeared to be in charge of the troop ship. This feels more like the Irregulars doing a move and/or twist with the dialogue though, like "Now this is pod racing" or "You're Our only hope".

Alberto Freddo Han Xasha Zeppo definitely leaves trouble in his wake. Easy answer here is that he scammed Kylo and the First Order out of money like usual. For a more interesting answer, maybe Zeppo destroyed/stole the rest of the cremated remains of Vader's suit? Kylo is hanging onto that helmet for some reason, and it'd be easy to say that happened before the episode started. It's quite difficult to show something that's been completely destroyed after all.

.... Hm. Rey kind of looks like she's waking up from dental surgery in her last panel and the chair doesn't help with that image at all. Unfortunate, but there's probably very few (if any) good poses or exaggerated expressions available in a scene like this to interpret differently.

Transcript

Rey: You’ll never get the map.
Kylo Ren: Rey Solo. You think the leader of the Resistance—your own mother—won’t bargain for your life?
Kylo Ren: Perhaps. She may decide that a martyr better suits her cause. She’s always been a clear thinker. I admire that about her.
Kylo Ren: If only your father were still alive. He was always so very foolish.
Rey: Whu—
GM: Oooh, Pete, make an Interrogation save.
Rey: Damn. 4.
Kylo Ren: Your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for him are strong. So, your father is still alive. Your feelings have now betrayed him, too.
Rey: What did he ever do to you?
Kylo Ren: You find it difficult to believe your father would wrong someone?
Rey: No, I just want to know what it was this time.
