Episode 2144: Hosnian Shopping Network


Do you know what's even better than giving the players an infodump?

Giving them an infodump of stuff that they really should have known given all the clues you've dropped, but which they still haven't figured out.

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

Aha, and here we have the in-game confirmation for Team Good Guy that Nute's behind the First Order. The players know, Team Bad Guy knows, we know, and now Team Good Guy knows, so now everyone should know.

Hah. And just like that, now I've got a small idea in my head that "the First Order" is actually an Irregular creation. I'm like 95% certain it isn't, but there's always that time you roll a 1 on Insight. Not the organization as a whole mind you, there's been too much organization shown on Team Bad Guy for that; just the name being different. Like "The Lost Orb of Phanastacoria" name change for the whatever-it's-called at the end of Episode I.


I wonder what they actually sell.


General Phasma: Did you ever hear the tragedy of Nute Gunray the Wise?
Finn: No.
General Phasma: I thought not. For a tragedy it is not!
General Phasma: Many have sought to kill him, but Nute is Many.
General Phasma: His mind is omnipresent: databases, droids, libraries, traffic control systems, maps.
General Phasma: He sees you when you’re sleeping. He knows when you’re awake.
General Phasma: Foul Tyrant both of Gods and humankind, One only being shalt thou not subdue.
General Phasma: Ask yourself: Why, if Nute Gunray’s mind still existed, would he not be in command of the most powerful retail organisation in the Galaxy?
General Phasma: The answer is: Of course he would.
General Phasma: The First Order!
Finn: Retail?
General Phasma: You get 25% off your First Order!!!
