Episode 36While it looks like Minister Blue, Agent Zero, and the rest of the imps have the upper hand, our heroes are armed to the teeth, and willing to pay an arm and a leg to keep the Emperor’s paws off the ones they love.

    You’re not using adversary rules correctly.

    1. Kat Kuhl says:

      We know. We still have an episode to go before we realize and fix it.

      1. Gigadunk says:

        Nice! Took my crew and I literal MONTHS before we realized we had it wrong.

        1. Rich Howard says:

          How is that wrong? That sounded right to me.

          ::looks up some forums::

          OH! Interesting. So a normal melee attack against an adversary 2 means both would be red die instead of purple. Does that mean if the attack was against an adversary 3 it would be 2 reds and 1 additional purple?

          1. Kat Kuhl says:

            Yep! So let’s hope they don’t fight that inquisitor anytime soon.

        2. Rich Howard says:

          Also, I find it interesting that the first comment on that episode was “You’re doing something wrong” and not “Holy Crap! What a story!”

          1. Gigadunk says:

            You’re not wrong. This episode was very good. If I could edit my original post to say the same, I would.

            This particular error just hit a little close to home, as I had been making the same mistake myself for a very long time.

    Oh my god, that ending. Did not see that coming. Brilliantly done Kat.

  3. LibertyJorj says:

    Just gonna go out on a limb here – I don’t think things went as planned.

    1. Solicitor 6 says:

      I think they can still get a handle on the situation.

      1. wanderingbishop says:

        You sure? I feel like the Inquisitor has them under her thumb right now.

        1. LibertyJorj says:

          At this point I think a farewell to arms is inevitable.

          1. Solicitor 6 says:

            I don’t think so. After all, the tighter you try to hold the Mynock crew, the more they slip through your fingers.

    *****SPOILERS******
    Oh man, what an episode! I wonder whether Leenik will go the cybernetics route or just jump around without an arm.

    Also… and hopefully I’m not being annoying just yet, but Adversary (as well as Sidestep, Dodge etc.) upgrades purples to reds or adds purples if only reds are involved. So basically you can either upgrade difficulty (adversary, destiny points, talents) or increase it (dual wielding, also some talents etc.)

    Sorry for being a dirty rules lawyer and keep doing what you’re doing!

    AAAHHH LEENIK!!!

  6. Bluebogle says:

    Holy Jesus poops! Leenik! No!!!

  7. Jeffrywith1e says:

    Yes, that episode was amazing!, But nothing could prepare me for Vryst Talentine! That was hilarious!

  8. Sam says:

    Marvelous episode! While I love the usual antics, it’s very cool listening to this group get down to business (without ever losing your hilarious edge).

    I admit that when I heard the crit number I grinned-I’ve delivered that news bad news a few times. The true horror of edge of the empire is revealed! My group’s been playing almost two years, starting with a fringer campaign before moving to a knights of the old republic Jedi peacekeepers story, and boy oh boy. It takes a run of bad luck to actually die, but it’s fairly easy for the enemy to start shaving off body parts, and common enough for well-armed enemies to drop multiple players (leading to equipment loss, at least).

    Also, it seemed like the stormtroopers weren’t soaking very much damage. Was that a cinematic choice? I know we don’t see them absorbing too many shots in the movies.

    So, I’m behind, but catching up, and I wasn’t sure if this ever came up.

    Ganks were originally mentioned in one of the earlier scripts for Empire Strikes Back as one of the things after Han’s bounty. The reference was taken out of the movie, but is still in the novelization of the movie.

    Ganks later showed up in the Dark Empire comic. They looked kind of like goofy guys with bad posture wearing armor in that comic, but the Fantasy Flight artwork makes them much more Deathstroke looking.

    Now I’m thinking having two competing Ganks named Wade and Slade, one of whom doesn’t take anything seriously and constantly cracks inappropriate jokes, might have to show up in some game I run someday.

    1. Manspider says:

      Wade and Slade is amazing. I’m totally stealing this idea.

      You should try to do their voices, too- Ron Perlman’s Slade and Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool.
