Episode 2289: Behold the Black Stump


If you go looking for danger, you'll often end up finding it. Instead, try these search procedures:

Commentary by memnarch (who has not seen the movie)

Oooooh. Definitely looking for trouble Rey is. Interesting that the Vader vision tree equivalent is happening this early. Or maybe this is just a teaser for it to show up again later. Also fascinating that there's remains of a tree on this island. It looked like the place was pretty much just rocks, moss, and maybe grasses. Perhaps this is the dire version of a space coconut tree?

Also nice to see Corey think of something before Pete for once.


Luke: I check to see if Rey is still following me.
Rey: Nope!
Rey: I turn away from Luke and walk towards the Force foliation.
GM: You approach what appears to be the twisted stump of a large tree.
GM: Here the Force feels... thick... tangible...
Rey: I approach carefully. Alert for any sudden attacks. Or unstable terrain. Or... weird Force curses.
Rey: Or anything dangerous whatsoever.
GM: A large opening in the stump beckons.
BB-8: Look out!
Rey: Huh?
BB-8: Given your focus on peril, you’re unlikely to have noticed anything not dangerous.
Rey: That would just be perverse.
{beat, Rey considers}
Rey: I check for traps.
