    Also, in forthcoming webcomic news, the trailer for SOLO dropped during the Super Bowl tonight. The CIs have got to use that shot of the Star Destroyer somehow. I don't care where or when, but it must happen.

    Jim Inherited this character. This isn't the same Underwater Oxygen Extraction Apparatus, Luke has that right now. And Vader has the Jappor Snippet, though I guess the necklace could serve a similar purpose.

    You know its weird. The GM gave Jim one of his sheets to play, right? So why does it say "Mysterious Necklace" if it was for his own purpose originally. Wouldn't he name or describe it a bit better?

    No? He knows what it is, he doesn't need to write down "magical necklace of keeping the NPC alive".

    Also, many GMs make sure things aren't spelled out in case one of the players decides to get sneaky. Min/maxing rules lawyers have a reputation for such things, and there's one of those at the table.

    Regarding today's discussion of "which Evil Overlord List entry is Krennic breaking at the moment" - this one seems like the most "on point"

    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.ph...VowsCellblockB

    194: If I offer to pay someone, I will keep the vow, and I won't kill them once they are no longer useful.

    Although some others may apply as well - for example:

    185: I will make all my minions pass psych eval and IQ tests. Idiot minions generally forget orders, and respond to such orders as "Kill her" or "Strap him down" with "But datz mean, boss!".

    (meaning - don't employ minions that still have consciences).

    Hey, look, Toprawa gets mentioned after all. Except it's an ocean world instead of farm world.

    Oh well, at least we can skip the droid combines.

    I wonder at what point they switched from TIEs to PIEs.

    Pretty much that strip you linked. GM wanted to say "No they're called TIE" (I assume) and they kept saying PIE. Hence the joke about "Don't change teh name again".

    Except he's saying that now, and we know they'll have changed the name at least once more, since they're called PIE fighters in the next campaign.

    That's the joke. They changed it now, from SFSL Fighters to TIE Fighters, and he told them not to change it again - but we already know that they did anyway, so they clearly didn't heed that request.
    Like 4X (aka Civilization-like) gaming? Know programming? Interested in game development? Take a look.

    Yes, this shot was as flabbergastingly improbable in the movie as the GM lampshades in the comic, IMO. And also, "Not a Jedi" my Force-insensitive hind end.

    In my posts, smilies generally correspond to my expression at the time. As an example, means "huh?" and "Hmm..". Also, "Landis" is fine.

    He's not a jedi, but if the fact that he could functionally see while blind wasn't enough of an indicator, this should be that he can still use the Force. Also, he has a laser longbow, which I found greatly amusing.

    In fairness to the guards not questioning the "innocent bystanders" thing, they did come across two civilians trying to save the life of one of the high ranking people at the base, not something you'd expect of the people attacking the base.

    Yea, Krennic looked like the one who was attacking the base.

    We already know the GM takes standard D&D equipment lists and sticks 'laser' or other sci-fi prefixes on the front. Maybe one of the Darths writers snuck into the studio and edited the script.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    Or someone at the studio reads the strip and thought it was a cool idea.

    The thing is, an earlier strip said that laser longbows would be just silly.

    It is literally the very first strip that snarks at "plasma bows" as being an example of "D&D items with techy words added":

    Could also be those foamish looking ceiling tiles. We always used to decorate those with pens and pencils back in my school days.

    No, there's one where Sally is talking about how the battle on the wookie planet I can't spell is like Agincourt, but Pete reminds her that Agincourt had longbows, not crossbows, and she says "Laser longbows would be just silly, silly."
