    We regularly had game nights at the pub. Not as distracting as one might think.


    That "two" seems like an anticlimax. It should've been something like a 00 at least.

    I wonder how they're going to handle the aftermath.

    Wikipedia says that originally it was an elephant and does not mention a ship.

    Fun fact, in most Germanic language it's a messenger or runner, in French they are jesters, in Romanian they are madmen, in Slovak they are archers...

    Are you kidding? A pub is the BEST place to play a game! I mean, you dont even have to role play at the start, just walk up to the bartender and ask if he has any quests for you to do! Just be careful, I hear the residents of rl pubs tend to be higher level than average inside D&D.

    We did have one session in the park! Distractions were not worse than normally. Probably less, because the dm had only the absolutely neccessary books with him.

    My guess is Annie doesn't understand what happened until Palpatine rebuilds her as a Cyborg, and when she suddenly realizes it, it prompts the "NOOOOOOOO"

    Also, just because he had the prosthetics doesnt mean he needed them. Wasnt the emperor intentionally weakening anakin when he put him in that suit? With all the injuries he had, how would anakin even notice an unneeded addition or two to keep him in pain and weaker than he had to be.

    Last words... That'd be something. I need to have a character die one of these days. Slain by an evil house cat. Wait, that is a redundant statement. Slain by a house cat!

    So... that's how they dies? Because Anakin wants to suffer hellish pain before he dies? AND take Padme down with him? And his unborn children? Ouch.

    Isnt padme supposed to be dead? Thats what I gathered from the whole, "i turn a little bluer" comment jim made earlier. Even if she was only not breathing, considering how long the duel went on for, and how long it would take obi wan to get back to padme, she would be dead by then anyways.

    I think Anakin and Padme will both be treated as dead. Luke / Leia's births and Darth Vader's identity as Anakin will then be featured in the OT as semi-retcon "flashbacks".

    Dunno, since Jim hasn't gone into any kind of rage over Padme dying I assumed she was still alive and possible to save her, one way or another. Also, why else would he complain about her being left behind?
    I'm not sure how ANni will react to Ben denying her dying wish but... yeah, Padme seems rather clearly to be alive though dying. I guess it will be some 'you or your kids' choice Jim has to make and he will do, what Anni taught/expects him to for the sake of... you know. Booty:P

    rofl. I can see it happening too. Actually, I see jim playing leia. After all, he has developed a taste for diplomatic power, and admit it, you can just SEE how jim would handle the first meeting between her and vader. Vader goes into his speech about rebel action and stealing plans.

    Jim: I roll for initiative!"
    DM: "Wait, what? You have no weapons!"
    Jim: "Oh, ok then, I try for diplomacy."
    DM: "Ok, roll"

    Hmm, good point, then in that case, there is obviously an exp penalty, as the challenge rating was way too low. I mean, obliterating a planet full of npcs in one shot? Thats like having a level 20 wizard take on a quest to clear the rats out of an old mans basement. No challenge, so no real exp boost.

    I wonder if this is another ploy by Annie. If Anakin knows Palpy is on his way or has a way of reaching him, Anakin can play up the whole "He tore off my limbs and left me to die beside a pit of lava" thing to get sympathy and cement the whole "Jedi are heartless bastards" thing.

    You can still see it's a male, though.

    But I don't think they'll make that big a change either... It's possibly but I don't find it very likely. I like the idea of Annie just tricking Obi-Wan though. Maybe the NOOOOOOOOOO might even be a YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES because... well, she is the second in command in ruling he galaxy. Even though a cyborg, kind of. The sudden wish for redemption comes kind of out of nowhere.
