    Yes, Jim, destroy those Power Points. Do it so thoroughly you destroy Power Point entirely throughout the universe.

    The party agreed on a course of action much faster than I expected.

    So what is this about the Comic Irregulars turning their show into a stage play? How did they get that past the Mouse and its infamously humorless lawyers?

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

    And they probably aren't claiming the characters as their own work, or making money off it.

    Tickets cost $10, and the Arts Festival isn't a charity IIRC.

    The real impressive bit is that it's in Florida. I could see a rogue Star Wars stage play in, like, Boise, Idaho, but right at Darth Disney's front door is another thing.

    On the one hand, doing this sort of thing right in front of Disney is going to get up in their grill really fast. On the other hand, if they did this in the podunk part of Idaho their chance of being ignored goes down slightly, but their exposure (and thus their ability to generate funding to fight off spurious lawfare) goes down faster. All-in-all, it is probably a better idea to go do your slightly daring thing on the steps of Disney's CEO's house and get the whole "we'll sue the pants off you" thing out of the way as soon as possible.

    They might be able to get away with it if they change all the names of the characters to be something other than what they were in the movies. I know of at least one group that did a stage musical which parodied both Star Wars and the Strouse/Charnin Annie, and one thing they had to do was avoid using names from any of the source material. The main character is Ani, who is based on both Annie and Anakin The villain is Pappy (which is a shortened version of "Palpatine"), and one of the comic relief characters is called JJ.

    But I'm not a lawyer. And even if I were, Disney would have more lawyers than me. So I don't really know.

    It's also quite possible they asked permission, and Disney said okay because it's not worth the bad press to say no.

    The little news blurb calls it an authorized adaptation, I would assume the authorized means Disney signed off on it.

    I assume authorized means the webcomic authors signed off on it as ok.

    I don't see how doing a webcomic is different from doing a play; in the play they are not even using screenshots.

    To answer your question, keybounce, turning a garden hose on lava doesn't do much of anything besides make steam. There just isn't enough volume of water to cool the lava enough that it begins to solidify before the rest of the lava reheats it through thermal conduction.

    edit, well, you might make a few crystals of obsidian if the lava flow has already radiated a significant amount of its surface heat.

    I guess Annie's voicing Vader because this is just Annie and the DM in the room?

    Well, we aren't seeing this game as it happens, we are seeing the group's retelling of the campaign several out-of-game years later, after they played Episodes IV-VI. Maybe Annie is voicing Darth Vader because everyone in the room knows she did it in the original trilogy. Or I could be completely off base and it is actually as Lethologica says.

    I wonder if Vader will be angry at the end about Tarkin "kill-stealing."

    If they use footage from the trailer, or just have them have long range communication, she might be the one who ordered it instead of Târkin. It would fit their characters better ("Base Orbital Bombardment Practice Range Omega" anyone?). It also wouldn't be the first time the comic changed who killed whom.

    Presumably Jim will play Bail until he dies, and then switch back to Bria so that she can die at the end.

    But Organa didn't die in this movie. He just left to offscreen-land where he died in the next movie.

    I wonder how they will handle that.

    It's off screen, so all they need is a bit of dialogue.

    Thanks for reminding me: I didn't remember him dying in the movie, but I didn't remember him not dying, either. So, they will probably just add some dialogue about him dying of-panel.


    Also remember that in Darths and Droids, the planet that was blown up in episode IV is Naboo, not Alderaan. So, some things may have to be changed.

    Keybounce's commentary today was funnier than the last several pages have been. Anyone else starting to not really feel the love for the comic anymore?

    I guess yes, since this is the first comment in two weeks.

    Maybe it is partly because I haven't seen this movie but yes. I think part is that I don't yet care much about the new characters. Well the players are the same of course but still.

    Rogue One is a bit of an odd duck. Trying to fit the characters from Rogue One into the same character arcs as the characters from the rest of the movies isn't doing it any favors. Rogue One is, in my opinion, a pretty good movie. At the very least, I think it is a better treatment of the before time than episodes I, II, and III were.

    If anything, I'm really wondering about the text savviness of the rebellion.

    Heck, and the Empire.

    Seriously, the enemy combat robot? That you would use it//that you wouldn't plant it?

    I really hope that the combat robot calling the rebel base doesn't actually happen that way in the movie.

    I mean, is there any reason to mistrust it more than any other recruit from the empire? Droids can be reprogrammed, after all. I would think they would be easier to trust than humans.

    Eh, droids in the SW universe (the movies, at least) are pretty much treated as "shiny humans". In practical terms, they're just another kind of funny-looking people.

    The combat robot is in the base in the movie ; they are not calling anyone in this scene.
