    That works a lot better when you're telling an actual story though and not just regurgitating a slightly modified version of a story that everyone in the entire world already knows. I never felt that DM of the Rings had this problem...although to be fair, I did read the entire series at once after completion, so I was able to skip through the boring/filler updates much faster.

    Perhaps I'm being overly critical. Other people are obviously still enjoying the comic. I simply feel that the quality has dropped sharply over the course of the last few weeks.

    Man, if you think D+D is only 'slightly modified' past, say, Comic 20 or so...wow.

    I'll say I am bored with Corey/Adam as well though - but then, they get their best comics out of expressive screenshots, and Lar's home scene is incredibly drab and dull. Once they run out of 'I only know video games' jokes to tell with Corey, he's got potential...though considering the Trench Run is one of the most classic 'arcade game' moments ever, they'll probably keep beating that dead horse for at least that long.

    I wouldn't put it past the D+D DM to have made that climactic scene intentionally video game-esque for Corey.

    It's the establishing sequence from A New Hope, there's not much ground for comedy in what's happening. Slow beginnings are to be expected at each new film. I'm confident it'll pick up more steam once Han and Chewie are introduced and the film gets into the meat of the action.

    Yeah I think itll stay mostly slow until we finally hit that wretched hive of scum and villainy. Thats when the real action gets started.

    Also wanted to add: Darths & Droids isn't just a retelling/parody of the Star Wars movies; it's also the story of the gaming group. While we only see the film footage -- the "story within a story" in a way -- the focus has slowly shifted towards the players.

    Ah, the question of what is worth more xp points, the quest that you are doing right now, or something else.

    Well, here's a difference between Sally and Corey. Sally knew play-pretend so more focus on story. Corey knows computer RPGs, and is a bit more familar with xp and mechanics.

    Also, interesting line from Annie: hill of space pears. Seems like Jim is rubbing off on her.

    Makes me wonder how big space pears are. Are they like Earth pears, or closer to the size of beans? Because they would take vastly different amounts to make a hill...

    It honestly makes me wonder who will control han. Or if he even WILL be controlled. Lets face it, he would make a decent plot hook npc. He happens to be there to fly them out. Happens to bring them to the death star, then happens to show up at the trench run just as the tkp is about to happen and gives the hero his second chance to win the game. He is like the ideal npc created by the dm in order to make the story move along. if this was following the actual star wars story of course. No telling what could happen in this version till it does. I just want grievous back! GIVE ME A GRIEVOUS INSANE CHARACTER!!!!

    Well to be fair, Corey wasn't there when the security bolt was explained, and I don't know where you got the idea that Pete is dumb.

    So, I'm sensing that there's going to be a role reversal between "Adam" and "Greedo" for this particular game?

    So I have this odd feeling that "Adam" is actually going to stay Adam, and not be Luke. Wedge or someone else will end up being Luke and the entire plot will go astray when Luke gets killed or keeps getting stymied as an important character. I also get the feeling that Ben will play Obi Wan again, and then will pick up Lando later on, if they are making him sporadodic character.

    One thing I just "got" in the current strip. Pete earned 50xp for getting the restraining bolt off. That's the exact amount that pete suggested that the quest the new guy insisted on completing is worth.

    Their version of Tattooine sounds rather more dangerous than the one we're used to.

    I dunno, Tattooine is already pretty dangerous. A desert wasteland prone to storms, where not one but two kinds of nomads will blend in with the terrain and shadow you before ambushing you, killing you or leaving you for dead and taking your things, ruled by crime lords and possessed of a "hive of scum and villiany"?

    The original Lar household didn't need an active line of perimeter guns around their house, did they?
