    A very entertaining show! It ended rather abruptly. Was that intended or did something go wrong?

    Another idea for modifying the eggplant is have your party attacked by something like a a couple owlbears, or another small squad of seemingly low intelligence, primarily beastial creatures. However, during combat, they display abilities far in excess of their standard class. This leads the party to try to search out what could imbue these creatures with these elevated abilities. The party comes across this patch of seemingly wild eggplant and of course look to gorge themselves on it to gain the abilities, thinking it is just the equivalent of a Mario mushroom. From there, the eggplant starts to infest them and look to gain control, leading to plans to expand beyond the small field from which they originate. In other words, it is the party’s fault for giving the eggplants the idea of world domination.

    Love these little looks into your guys’ heads and lives.

    I finally caught up on Rebels, and that whole episode with Hera and her father was awesome. I need to re-watch it just to see Zeb’s face now, but so many little touches. The way she was tapping her spanner against her leg as she talked to Ezra, and when she broke into the totally-not-French accent, it really added to her character. I didn’t see it the same way you guys did, but not it has just that much more power to it. When she slipped back to the Outer-rim accent, it was like taking a stand, defiance, and it had the same punch in the gut feeling that Yoda had when he said “That is why you fail”.

    Also loved the talk on riddles and puzzles. I love adding tactile mini-games to my RPGs, too. Take a little “roll-playing” out of the RPG. Always love hearing new suggestions.

    I would infect lambs with the parasitic eggplant for instant moussaka.
