You are TK-392, a soldier in the Imperial army. You have been on the planet Reecee for some time now; after your first mission left you nearly dead and your entire group killed you have since healed up and have been promoted to Alpha squad; a veteran group of soldiers who have earned their fame throughout the city of Relaxis for their brutal and merciless tactics. Your very first mission with this group has been going smoothly so far; you are assaulting a large rebel base which Imperial intelligence believes is orchestrating the growing rebel uprising in the city. After you and your team cut through squad after squad of rebel insurgents you have found yourself in the communications center of the complex and are now facing one of the most dangerous foes you’ve come across; a Jedi.You stand there in the darkened room, knife at the ready and facing towards the young woman standing before you. You see her eyes slowly move up and down your body, sizing you up for the coming conflict. You begin to sweat underneath your armor as fear starts taking its grip over your mind; she’s a Jedi and you’re a Stormtrooper holding a knife hoping it will provide protection against a lightsaber. You glance behind her to see if any of your squad mates are coming to your aid but you can’t see anything in the dimmed room apart from the glowing rod of green light illuminating the young Jedi’s face. She readies her saber and widens her stance, she’s about to attack and you need to think of something fast!What do you do?

Some things you need to know:I run this on a D20 “best of three” system; I take the first three rolls of every dice check and choose the highest one.I will add both positive and negative modifiers depending on the situation.FAILING A ROLL WILL HAVE EXTREME NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES!!! This is why this game has become so popular with some of you ; the excitement of the unknown! This character CAN DIE if you roll bad enough depending on the situation. The only reason I’m giving you all of these chances with the best of three and the modifiers is because I want to see how far our character will go depending on what you guys want him to do.You know the rest; be awesome to each other and keep rude comments to yourself.
Well, my previous response:>What species?>do we recognize them at all?>how far away are we?>any other minor details we could have noticed?
>>25571130As far as you know she is a human female wearing traditional Jedi garbs.You do not recognize her at all as you are about 15 feet away from her and the room is darkened due to her dramatic entrance knocking out most of the lights.The only other thing you notice is that she is young and slightly shorter than you are. You wager that you could easily overpower her if she didn't have that lightsaber.Your other squad mates aren't dead but you still can't see them. You hear movement in the darkness and you can only guess they're planning something; you just have to survive long enough for them to carry out what ever trap they're laying.
>>25571237I vote for stallinghow the fuck do you stall someone who can read your mind
>>25571237Can we try and talk her down somehow? If nothing else, keep her talking. She might be surprised at a stormtrooper speaking, at the least.
>>25571274No meta gaming, even if it's spoiler-d
>>25571237Maintain a defensive stance, move around. Tell her "This is not your fight, Jedi. Leave and you won't get hurt."
>>>/vg/38356775You guys might be interested in this.Starwars galaxies is back.Or well some people are reverse engineering it.Just read the info on the /vg/ page.It's a great mmo rpg with a huge economy social network.So far jedi and most classes that were added later on are not in the game yet though.
>>25571277You can, gonna need a persuasion check though, since this is a non-combat roll neither you or the Jedi have any modifiers.Gimme three and hope your hate makes us stronk!
>>25571237"I thought Jedi were pacifists. It's funny that you have not only ignored the edict of The Empire, but also of your own order. Hypocrites."While stalling by questioning her philosophy (which you don't care for) feign giving up your Main weapon. Try to sneakily grab your pistol blaster.

>>25571355You lost your main weapon and your sidearm in her initial attack; as I said before you need to read the previous threads so you can know exactly what's going on
>>25571377but it's starwars rpg related and allot people respected old starwars galaxies its going to bring back old good SWG :_:I thought you cared about starwars games.
>>25571424I do, but this is a game and we can't have any distractions! I used to play Galaxies and SWKOTOR all day long back in the day so don't think I don't care about Star Wars games!>>25571396> OFF TO A GREAT FUCKING START WE ARE!!!" You don't want to do this, Jedi" you tell her in a low, serious tone.Her face shows no emotion at your threat, she is still in an offensive stance and isn't moving an inch. " I don't wish for bloodshed, but you and your team have put our entire operation at risk. You leave me no choice." She jumps towards you with her lightsaber held high above her head ready to slice you in half. You quickly take your helmet off and toss it aside, giving her a look at your frightened face as you cry " WAIT!" at the top of your lungs.She stops a few feet away from you, her steely face softens a little now that she sees the human behind the mask.You've given yourself some time, what do you do next?A. Give her a sob storyB. Run into the shadows
>>25571382>>25571396>>25571370hoboy THE FAIL IS STRONG IN THIS THREAD TODAY
Rolled 14>>25571610A, let's try to distract her for as long as we can.
>>25571610A. Maybe if we can buy enough time sharp will get down here and blow her away.
>>25571610Is now the wrong time to stick a knife in her belly?
>>25571610I vote Sob Story so we can buy more time for our team.
>>25571610A. Sob story of course.About how our parents were killed by a rebel terrorist attack, and how we joined up to bring the man to justice. Or some shit like that.While we're talking, continue to survey the area for our main weapon and try to come up with a way to kill her.
>>25571647Sorry had the name on from another thread.

>>25571720> Rolled 15+2=18You've got her right where you want now, you conjure up the saddest face you can think of and tell her your story." I didn't want this... any of it. I was forced into this after pickpocketing a recruitment officer for creds to buy some food. I went through hell in their training camps; the only reason I survived was because I was so scared of dying. Then they put me in this armor and sent me here to die fighting you. Do you know what that's like? To have someone rip you away from everything you know and force you to be something.... less than human?"You hit a nerve with her, a big one. Her lightsaber switches off and she's now standing just a few feet away from you; almost in arms length.You press on, hoping to buy enough time" Look, you can help me get out of here; my commander will kill me when he wakes up for not killing you and...." You stop, letting a single crocodile tear roll down your cheek.She's almost yours now; the look on her face is just priceless. Do you:A. Try your luck and attack herB. Keep up the sob story; your squad has to be planning somethingC. Slowly walk back into the shadows
>>25571929Walk back to the shadows
>>25571758My apologies, OP. I had forgotten that was NSFW.
>>25571929hell this seams like the perfect way to join up with them...
>>25571929B. she's not quite close enough yet.
>>25571977As a double agent! Yes! Lets give her a our comm frequency with the intention if getting her help later, and then C.
>>25572006Damn it the name keeps coming up
We would never join the republic scum that killed our CO! Or do we? I mean we only knew her for a day or so.....
>>25572028Well, it wouldn't be stormtrooper quest if we weren't stormtroopers.Though we might want to consider becoming a new Player in the galactic arena.
>>25572028We'd only ever join them to help crush this stupid 'rebellion' from the inside. If they had never take up send against our lawful government, our poor CO and squad would still be alive!

>>25572131> Think about a new character because as I said before there's a good possibility that 392 may die before this is overA GM not afraid to kill protagonists. I like this.
>>25572149No, no, I recommend an extended stay with an Imperial torture droid, instead. Much more "fun."
>>25572176no. droids are to... impersonal.Death in the Fighting Pits!
>>25572149>Implying that we wouldn't help the Empire by becoming a mole in the rebel's ranks.
>>25572249We're basically Animal Mother in stormtrooper armor. We're not exactly good at the whole "subtlety" thing. Leave that shit to the spooks.
Rolled 10>>25572249It's just a bit out of character for 392. He's not a cold, hyper-competent double agent, he's a former thief who is surprisingly talented with heavy weapons. He does not care for long tedious plots, preferring the visceral feel of battle and slaughter.
>>25572269Hey man, he is a thief first and foremost. Thieves take any advantage they can get. Kind of rogueish to be honest.
We're a simply grunt that has thus far been lucky! (And unlucky) And wouldn't last a day as a mole. We're made for doing simpler things like going on patrols or conducting raids and blowing shit up for the glory of the empire and try not to catch a bolt of laser in the process (Or a lightsaber)In short we're a lowly grunt not some super special soldier trained in gorrila warfare with 300 confirmed kills
>>25572292Except he's not a sly thief. If he was he wouldn't have tried to pick an imperial officers pocket unless he wouldn't get caught. Besides after basic he turned into fucking Gomer Pyle.
>>25572269>>25572258While I agree that we aren't the most subtle of individuals, I think we are an opportunist at heart.Trying to kill a Jedi with only a knife is likely to get killed. Faking joining the rebellion to find out more about their operations to then pass up the chain could potentially earn us a promotion.
>>25572307>like going on patrols or conducting raids and blowing shit up for the glory of the empireOr standing post.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=19dMSRLCFIs
is there any way we can signal to our squad without the jedi noticing?is our comms unit inside the helmet we threw away?
>>25572329It's also going to get us killed by the rest of Alpha Squad when they kill this Jedi.
wait, she put away her lightsaberhow fast are our weapon projectiles? what's the sniper doing?
>>25572329It might help to get her comm, but we're not fuckin g defecting on a hunch.
>>25572355This. Surely Sharps will come to save the day. Or we'll be killed/captured.
>>25572146> Rolled 19You just need a few more feet of clearance before you can reach her. You get down on your knees and look up at her pitifully." Please help me, I... I just want to go home. I'm tired of all this; all the fighting, all the death and mayhem... I just want to get away."You lower your head into your hands and wait for a minute, letting what you said sink in. When you raise your head the woman is crouching right in front of you, an equally sad and pitiful expression on her face." I too have felt your pain... I know how hard it can be. It appears that we are kindred spirits trapped on the wrong side of the playing field. I can help you but you must tell your team to stand down."You're sad expression shifts for a fraction of a second; you forgotten that she can sense people. They're trap foiled, the rest of your team walks slowly towards you and the Jedi." Get back Rook, you've done your part" you hear Rus command, his gun pointed at the Jedi.The Jedi puts her hand on your shoulder" Please, don't make me do this." she says desperately. A quick glance downward shows her other hand clutching her lightsaber, ready to switch on and kill you and your squad.What do you do?
>>25572385Oh hell no. That's why I only wanted her comm frequency before slinking away into the shadows to look for our squad.>>25572386Doubt it, he was ordered to stand guard at the entry point, I don't think he'd leave.
>>25572386how much do we know about jedi? in the prequels they're often in master-padawan pairs. is that true of this post-movies world? do we have that intel available?

>>25572547Who said anything about hating the empire? We just don't want to DIE.
>>25572395Why don't we try to disarm her? Since we are so close and have her in with our sob story.

fuck that, we know she's small and we could overpower her from earliergrab her arm or the saberworst case, use the knife. we could take a goddamned jedi prisoner if we disarm her.
>>25572572She's almost certainly going to be faster than we could be. We're just a soldier, not a coked-up space knight.
>>25572588No, but she can most certainly thumb the power stud and impale our ass.
Rolled 5>>25572593back that ass upgrab blasterwarn bros about saber
>>25572593I say we try for the disarm and knockout. A prize for imperial intelligence.
>>25572593Tell the squad to back off; she's got her saber ready to attack them.
>>25572611woops left my dice on, sorry
>>25572593Maybe we should just roll away and let our squad blast her.If that fails, her attention will be directed their way and we can try and go for the stab.
>>25572593Kick her tween the legs. My sister got hit there once, it hurts just as much for chicks as it dose for dudes.
>>25572593Tell the squad to leave. We'll handle it. >>25572426
>>25572593Tell our squad to back off for the moment. Hopefully they'll be smart enough to keep their weapons trained on her. We have a sniper overlook, correct?
>>25572638>>25572620>>25572625>>25572613>>25572611>>25572594Jedi is faster than us and will kill us if we attack. There is no doubt about that.

Rolled 16>>25572651This because bear.
WHERE THE FUCK IS OUR SNIPER RIGHT NOWwhy can't we just yell "sniper, now" and watch her head explode?
>>25572651ThisIf we've got a sniper then fucking this
>>25572651Okay, IF we do that, what's our next move?Personally, I want to roll away and let our boys just blast her.
>>25572613I can see the PROMOTIONS now
>>25572687Allow me to re-iterate:>>25572457
>>25572687Let's focus on the now. Bitch can deflect lasers, has super sense, and a really nasty sword.We can worry about it after we do not die.
"there's a sniper and three blasters pointed at your head. drop the lightsaber and you might survive this."then she can be freely captured or executed
Fuck this, you still got a thermal right?Give her a fucking bear hug with thermal grenade in your hand. Best case scenario is that she dies and we lose a goddamn hand, worse case scenario, she does a force push and a force flip and gets out of the way of the damn nade, and the resulting blast gives alpha squad some time to escape.if 392 is going down, he's taking making sure his squad lives.
>>25572716>>25572710>>25572651Just in case, I'm getting ready to put on "Ave Maria". If we die, we die with style.
>>25572716Dude, if we pull the pin on a thermal detonator we'll be fucking dust
>>25572716Seeing how we're dealing with a magic bitch,this is our best chance
>>25572710none but the most talented jedi could could come close to blocking three shots to the head at once, especially from a sniper rifle.i think we could convince her. we've talked our way out of lots of shit already.
>>25572716If losing our hand is the best case scenario with that plan, it's not a very good plan.
>>25572736Hey, we'll have a jedi body in between us and hopefully our armor can take most of that damage.We survived one explosion, let's go double or nothing.
>>25572736We've already used the thermal when we pulled back into this room
>>25572755>double or nothingI always hated bets like that.
>>25572754It's better than losing a life. Besides, you can get some really awesome hands that are life-like right now.And I am pretty sure taking out a jedi would earn us something like that.Besides, bitch is magic. You have to fight magic with crazy if you want to win.
>>25572761wasn't that a rebel's thermal while protecting the medic?
>>25572780No, when the rebels charged we threw one to take out the first wave
>>25572780nope. We tossed it down the hall and then lot's of fire while the door was getting hacked open
>>25572773Unfortunately we already used our only thermal in the corridor earlier I believe.I'm for rolling away and letting our men do the work.
>>25572792Don't we have more than one?
>>25572716For some reason all I can see is us doing this and screaming "For the empire!"PTSD has taken full control.
>>25572746Seconding this. Thermal detonators are a fucking good bargaining chip. You should be able to slowly put your hands behind your back like you're a prisoner to get it
>>25572817>>25572814WE DON'T HAVE A FUCKING DETONATOR.
>>25572806>>25572807>>25572809>Thinking fast, you take one of your own thermal detonators >sbut he also said standard gear was one TD. maybe we got an extra when we joined alpha/upgraded our gun?
>>25572773You can get an awesome hand if you're a fucking rebel hero guy with all the bitches, sure. We're an expendable stormie, remember?
>>25572809I doubt it
>>25572593"whisper to her run I can't keep them from shooting long"
>>25572833Oh shit, maybe the TD plan is viable?>*DM BA SIGNAL*What's our status on thermal detonators?

The kind of stare that penetrates through people's defenses and makes them feel sorry for you, the kind of stare that makes people trust you." Commander, back away now"The other squad mates look at each other, then at Rus who still hasn't taken his gun off of the Jedi or you. After a brief pause he moves his hand in a backwards direction and your squad moves away from you and your "friend". You see the Jedi place her lightsaber back inside of her robe and both of you stand up and turn to face your squadYou look at the commander one more time and give him a hint of a nod that is barely noticeable. You know you can't keep this act on for much longer, you're going to have to act now. The Jedi looks at you and gives you a warm smile." Thank you" she says " I am grateful that we could end the bloodshed after so much life has been lost in this pointless war."D20 for dexterity
>>25572840We CAN'T. We're not in command. Tell her that we're just a grunt and we couldnt stop our team from firing if we wanted to. Surrendering is the only way to prevent this from getting ugly.

>>25573031a single tear?fuck that, no remorse. maybe once we've turned away we can feel bad about our CO, but in the original post where she died it was made clear we weren't that attached to her, it was just survivors guilt after she saved our life.
Rolled 9>>25572864>overriding 20
>>25573070We got drunk in a bar, killed a cadet, and bitch slapped a twe'lek because of our commander.PTSD quest ftw.
>>25573052then as she collapses, something rolls out of her robes. you pick it up and activate it.it's a holograph of her parents and family, talking about how much they miss her back on [homeworld].you take a note of the co-ordinates. rebel sympathizers can't be left alive.
>>25573091that isn't no pussy attachement to our soldiers. it's a MANLY MENTAL DISORDER and survivors guilt.
>>25572878> Rolled 10, average fail" Don't thank me yet."You tuck and roll out of the way as your squad unleashes a barrage of blaster fire on the young Jedi. Her super-human reflexes prove to be no match for your ruse however and she jumps out of the line of fire and lands behind your squad. She activates her lightsaber as your squad fires on her again, she blocks every single hit with superhuman speed. Two bolts get deflected back and hit Rus in the leg, another hits Viss in the arm and he drops his gun. Looking around you still can't find your T-21 but you can see Viss's gun isn't far away from you. You remember that you have 2 more thermal detonators in your pack that you could use, but in such a confined space the explosion would definitely engulf your squad and yourself. You look at the knife in your hand; surely you wouldn't be stupid enough to try taking down a Jedi with nothing but a knife would you?Tank is the only one still firing on the Jedi; blaster bolts being deflected all around him from her lightsaber. Suddenly she jumps forward and slices Tank's gun in half and force pushes him a fair distance back and into a computer terminal.She fixes her gaze on you, her eyes are wide with anger at your deceit. There's no talking your way out of this now, you think to yourself.What do you do?
>>25573105Now that's what I call glorious service to the Empire. Good on you, lad.
>>25573143>10whati thought you went for the highest of the first three rolls.
>>25573013Man, fuck that, and fuck her. Until we dropped the helmet, she was dead-set on murdering our helpless asses. No 'this isn't the Jedi you're looking for', or disarming us with telekinesis. Just straight-up skewering us on her health sword.
>>25573143shank the bitch
>>25573143There was a 14 you missed
>>25573154Nat one neutralized the highest roll, methinks
>>25573143aaaaaand that should be a 14, the wonders of alcohol never cease to amaze me.It was still a minor success; you're not dead (yet) and you still have a chance to defeat your enemy.
>>25573143Thermal dets in both hands, ready to blow if we release our grip on them.That way she's screwed if she TRIES to do anything against us.
>>25573162at least if we die, point this out.point out that you were dragged into this, and everyone you knew killed in a rebel ambush. you're doing the job you were forced to do, and she was happy to cut you down without any qualms, despite you being completely helpless. at lest make her feel bad.
>>25573105>spoilerPic related>>25573143Make that bitch EAT THE KNIFE!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXTCX8TZNQo
>>25573187Having the other guys shoot has failed,It's time to go full derka derka suicide bomba
>>25573187ohi thought we were rolling to stab her, not dodgemaybe make it a little more clear what's about to happen in the future. (or maybe i'm just an idiot who can't read)
>>25573187WAIT, WAIT.I'm so sorry guys, I'm not trying to confuse you.Unfortunately >>25573184 is right; rolling a nat 1 forfeits the highest of the three rolls and I take the second highest.I apologize for any confusion; this is the last time I DM while drunk.
>>25573143PULL OUT THE THERMAL DETONATOR AND TELL HER TO PUT DOWN THE LIGHTSABER OR WE WILL KILL US ALL
>>25573191This! So much this. We live together or die together now bitch.Pic related, it'll be us soon.
>>25573143Grab the detonators and hold them, if we die so does she.
>>25573143Whoa. Anybody else got Mood-Whiplash?
>>25573143Okay, I guess discretion didn't work too well.Time to go up close and personal. Thermal detonator would most likely kill our squad, but we might want to have on hand if we get mortally wounded. The jedi's and our own body should reduce the range if we need to go explode.
We could try persuading her again.This time by priming both of our thermal dets, and telling her that if she doesn't comply, we set both off. We also let her know that just about anything she can try on us will result in us setting off at least one detonator.
>>25573143Listen, I am telling all of you, go suicidal.Ask her if she needs a hug, really piss her off. Rage clouds judgement and all that. Thermal detonator bear hug, she'll probably stab you in the gut with the saber, and twist. Tell her to stick this up her Jedi Beef-Curtains and detonate the goddamn thermal behind her back.Try to get her into a corner of the room, and tell them all to take cover once you do it.
>>25573227That's the one with zombies on an Imperial ship, right?I've got it sitting on my backlog, is it worth bumping up?
>>25573209YES!we jihad in the name of the empire!
>>25573143Use the Thermals as means of stalling her
>>25573143Why not go full crazy? Knife in one hand. Detonator in the other.
stopcollect our thoughtswe have a couple of thermal detonators. how far away is she? how fast can she move? how far is viss' gun?
>>25573269Yeah, its pretty good.
>>25573285This, this all the way!>>25573269Haven't read it to be honest, just loved the image.
>>25573285Thought about it, but she could chop our detonator hand
no need to DETONATE the thermals yet anons, lets see if we can get her to surrender first THEN if she refuses we go full Allah akbar
>>25573285thisbut keep the thermal detonator arm close, we don't want her to chop it off.
>>25573322If we give her a chance, she will either chop our arm off or force pull the detonator.We gotta go full rhino.
whip out the thermal detonators, crack a witty one liner about a rook taking a knight in chess, and blow yourself the fuck up
>>25573366That's why we hold one in each hand. She chops one hand, and hey, we set off the other one.
>>25573379A jedi is going to be way faster than our thermals' fuse, nigga.
>>25573366>force pull the detonator.that's why we set it to go off if it leaves our hand, and if she trys to go for our arm we just let go and kill everyone in the room
>>25573396>>25573373>wanting to commit suicidepls stop posting
>>25573396Don't broadcast you have the thermals.Just say, "aww baby jedi angry. Jedi needs a hug. Then rush her with the knife. Hopefully, she'll just stab us, and then we take the thermal detonator, hold her real close and tell her to go fuck herself.Boom.
>>25573285I like what I'm readingthis
>>25573396but not the triggerset it, then unless she can escape the room completely by the time the fuse runs out we're goldenhell, either we kill her and it's a win, or we take ourself and our entire squad out and nobody has to know it's our fault.
>all these ideas involve us dyingno anons not today
>>25573477Give us your master plan, anon.
>>25573436I agree with Patton. Better to try and fail, and blow ourselves up than to not try at all.
>>25573396Yeah, but if we can stall her long enough for someone else to shoot her.Or she isn't fast enough to deal with two thermal detonators.Either we die and kill her, or we don't and she gets shot/surrenders.
>>25573477can you think of one that doesnt involve us dying?we're trapped in a room with an enraged jedithe most we could possibly do is convince her that her rage is leading her to the dark side, but that would involve OOC knowledge
>>25573447I hate to say this but that is out of character for TK-392, he does not want to see comrades die
>>25573513They're dead if we let this jedi win.It's do or die time
>>25573506No, threatening her first is the best course of action, suicide to take out the enemy is a last resort.
>>25573543>She fixes her gaze on you, her eyes are wide with anger at your deceit. There's no talking your way out of this now, you think to yourself.>i'll talk my way out of this!
Lets just try and grab the blaster Viss had and blow her away with it.
>>25573568Well, it DOSE sound pretty stupid when you phrase it like that...My recommendation?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6npO-NoOPOg
>>25573543This is a last resort anon. There ain't not miracle coming. Russ is out, other comrades are shot, room is dark, there is no-one else here. The only one who could probably help is the sniper, and I'm not gonna pray for that.Best thing is we take her out, but we might end up dying. We got to take the risk, or we all are dead. Stalling for time won't help. We are in a rebel base, if anything, stalling helps her.
>>25573143>>25573541She's not trying to kill them. She cut the gun, not Tank. We still have a chance.
>>25573568>TK-392 pulls out both of his Thermal detonators and set them to go off after it leaves his hand>hey Jedi Bitch if you don't want to die this day you better surrender>see what happens
>>25573648is that a setting we can have? are TDs like modern grenades?
With no other means of escape you think of one last desperate act. You reach into your utility belt and pull out a thermal detonator. The Jedi stops and the two of you are standing only a few footsteps from one another. You start circling her so you can get closer to Viss’s weapon. The two of you slowly walk around the room, never taking your eyes off one another. She sees what you’re trying to do and prepares to lunge at you.“Attack me and we all die.” You say to her as your hand tightens on the thermal detonator.She doesn’t seem fazed by your threat at all and her face becomes grimmer than before; her anger towards you blocking out any logic or reason. You quickly glance over at Rus; he’s still alive and is pushing buttons on his wrist com-link wildly. It looks like you’re going to have to stall her again. The Jedi screams and lunges towards you, her superhuman speed making it almost impossible to see her.Do you:A. Throw the grenade at herB. Throw the knife at herC. Try to dodge the attackD. Lunge at her with the knife
>>25573591what you are suggesting IS suicidehttp://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Thermal_detonator>Unlike other grenades, a thermal detonator's blast would only go as far as its blast radius. After that, the blast field would collapse, and anything even slightly beyond the blast radius would be left unharmed.
>>25573584>Okay, so this chick can tear guns out of my hand using her mind and can deflect energy projectiles. What do I do?>I know!>I'll shoot at her with a blaster rifle!>This is a good plan.
>>25573669C. Let's try and move as far away from the rest of the team as possible.
>>25573669if a grenade explodes when slashed, then Ab is uselessC is sensibled is deathso A or C
>>25573669Can we do a write in?I say we try to do a rolling-lunge, so we go in low at her legs. From there we either initiate grapple, or slice the inside of her legs with our knife.Or we cunt-punch her with the thermal detonator.
>>25573669OH GOD DODGE
>>25573669Lunge at her with the fucking knife.She's expecting a dodge. We don't puss out.
>>25573669C, while keeping a tight grip on that grenade.Goad her on as well, say that we'll kill her family after this is done. Her anger will make her moves more easily predictable, and therefore more easy to dodge.
>>25573668TD's are highly explosive weapons used by the Empire and criminals alike. Most of them have a blast radius of about 5 meters.Here's what the one you have in your hand looks like
>>25573722she is literally moving so fast we can't see her properly, and dodged gunfire with 'superhuman speed'there is no way that will work
>>25573669B. maybe we get lucky.
>>25573718Oh shit, I didn't even think of that.GM! What would happen if the Jedi slashed the grenade?
We got two cant we say, throw one TD without activating it? Just to use it as distraction.
>>25573754>inb4 "I can't tell you that Dave."
>>25573732grenades have a pin which releases a leverthe lever going up is the actual fuseessentially, you can hold the lever down, and when you let go the fuse starts. does a td work like that? otherwise she could cut our arm off before we can even set it off
>>25573769Some do come with a dead-man's switch but not the one's the Empire uses. You're looking at a 6 second fuse.
>>25573768>MFW my middle name is David
>>25573749Yeah, but will she see it coming?And having a fully grown man roll into your ankles is not a pleasant experience.We're screwed either way, so why not push it to see how long before the dice gods completely abandon us?
>>25573669Dodge. A nat20 knife lunge would be hilarity, but otherwise she'll just dodge our knife attacks and then we will be dead. A dodge leaves more room for the dice gods' disfavor.
>>25573722>cunt punch her with the thermal detonatorLet's do this shit
>>25573669>A. Throw the grenade at herThat might get us the second we need to get Viss' blaster.
>>25573681>hurr lets blow everything up that's certainly a better idea.
>>25573865Can we combine options? If so, lob the grenade in her general direction while dodging like a motherfucker
So here we are my friends; one of the most important dice rolls in this game. 5 entire threads have been filled up for this one point in the quest and it's literally do or die.Tallied up the scores and it looks like 392 is going to try and dodge the attack. Pray to the dice gods if you must.D20 for dexterity check, no mods
Rolled 9>>25573886Time to die, 392.
Rolled 8>>25573886I got this.
Just stay still, close your eyes, take a last deep breath. She can read our mind so think about family how its important to you that the squad survives and whatever else you got.Proceed to hope we role a 20.
Rolled 7>>25573893>>25573899we lost
Rolled 15>>25573886Give it to me dice gods.
>>25573893>>25573899>>25573900WELP. Nice knowing you all.
>>25573893Can we roll for a scout next time? Or are they technically not storm troopers?
>>25573893>>25573899>>25573900Yep, we're dead.
>>25573893>>25573899>>25573900Now I can finally turn on Ave Maria.
>>25573893>>25573899>>25573900Well, see you 392. It's been nice knowing you.
Rolled 15GG guys we diedI was starting to like TK-392 to
Rolled 1Rolling to see what would have happened if we lunged with knife, thermal detonator in hand.If it works, I keep telling you, crazy always beats magic.
>>25573937Not crazy enough for the /tg/ dice gods, I'm afraid.
Rolled 7>>25573918No I hate snipers, I would rather play demolitions expert
Welp we're dead. So I know smuggler was suggested but what about being a bounty hunter? Just as deadly as this and could be scary too.
Rolled 2>>25573947I could go for Bounty Hunter, but only if we are on the Empires payroll
Rolled 2DICE GODS HAVE MERCY
>>25573959How about we play as another one of the squad? See how long it takes before we all die.
WAIT WE CAN STILL HAVE ONE OF YOUR SQUADMATES SAVE US RIGHT?
>>25573918I was actually going to start a Republic Commando themed quest with Stormtroopers, more like SWAT style.But then OP's quest came along, and I didn't want people to have to choose between two quests.Depending on if OP wants to start a new quest, I may start a Republic Commando quest.
>>25573982Not with a nat one we cant
>>25573994This is assuming of course that we die.Even if it looks grim now we "might" just pull out of this. Maybe missing an arm or barely alive...again, but there is still hope.
from the last thread>( You get a freebie; anytime you fail a roll one of your squadmates can save you without having to roll a dice check.)
>>25573994That would be cool with me so long as there's a suitable horror element.
>>25573893You are fucking kidding!Well, at least we take this bitch with us!
>>25574017>>25573977Anon cannot into dice.Protip: Read the front page.
Rolled 6>>25573886We're soo fucked
put it in the email field you retard
>>25574025OH GOD PLEASE SAVE US MR. SNIPER WE LEFT IN THE FIRST ROOM
Rolled 19>>25573886helpless rolling!
>>25574027>implyingthis is a critical failure. we're probably going to drop the grenade and then stab ourself in the foot before being disembowelled
>>25574025Yeah we have that...but its a bit of a cop-out. I think it'd be cooler to see us die in some horrible fashion and then for the Jedi-bitch to perish from the wall of fire our thermal will unleash.
>>25574025Oh shit, Brick or the anonymous sniper can save our asses still? I eagerly await the QM's approval.
>>25574053>wanting us to diefuck off I want TK-392 to live you bastard.
Rolled 4>>25574025grand moff?
>>25574060Not anonymous you douchebag. His name is Sharps.
SHARPS WILL SAVE USTHERE'S STILL HOPE
>>25573893>>25573899> Rolled 3You desperately try to dodge out of the way, but the supernatural speed of the Jedi is too much for you. In a flash you see her face an inch away from yours, her eyes looking at you with an intense hatred. You feel something warm in your chest and you look down to see the hilt of her lightsaber lodged in your chest. 'Funny' you think to yourself ' I thought this would hurt more.' You grab her shoulder for support and look into her eyes." tc- You know, I wasn't lying when I said I didn't want this."Her face goes from angry to sad in an instant; her force sensitivity detecting the truthfulness in what you say.With your last bit of strength you grab the lightsaber and force her hand off of the activation switch. Now free from the blade you take advantage of her moment of weakness and bear hug her as tightly as your failing muscles can manage." C-commander...."A barrage of blaster fire engulfs the two of you and you both fall to the ground, dead. Rus walks over to your body, kneels down, and closes your lifeless eyes. Before the team moves on to complete it's mission they have situated you in a traditional funerary pose at the center of the room; the sun light from the broken ceiling window shining down on you.Before they move on, Rus takes one look back at your body and the detonation charge they put between your lifeless hands. He shakes the emotions from his head and moves on. Back on the transport Rus looks at the Rebel base falling into the distance with a longing look." I'm impressed kid, really impressed."He presses the trigger and the entire base is engulfed in a blinding flash of nuclear light.Alpha squad completes their mission and retrieves valuable intel from the rebel base that would later help them crush the rebel uprising on Reecee. Your sacrifice wouldn't be soon forgotten as word of your deeds spread across the planet, then the system. You became a symbol of devotion and strength to the Imperial army.
>>25574248Too many feels.
>>25574248Here's our song.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dok4wJ4pqo0
>>25574248at least we died held in a womans armswhere were you, sharps?
>>25574248Can we play some recruit who was inspired by the propaganda'd version of our death? "I am but a simple trooper," he said with his fleeting breath. "But it is upon our strength that the Empire knows peace." -TK-392
>>25574248FOR THE EMPEROR
>>25574248Someone archive this. In the description, put "our hero faces his fate"
b-butwe had a free fuck-upwhere was shaaaarps
>>25574248Jesus, that was brilliant.>>25574330Great idea right there anon!
>>25574289No, this is not the time for grieving, celebrate this young soldiers sacrifice for the Empire.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzntZLHcYy0
>>25574354That freebie was for the previous thread, not this one.
>>25574248>>25574365What happened to having one of our squad mates save our ass with our one free "save your ass roll"?
>>25574330Oh yeah, I'm keeping that.
>>25574385I imagined it would be turned into something like this.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wk8EIczvg0
>>25574347THREAD IS ARCHIVEDhttp://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/25571101/
>>25574385>>25574365You're right, OP. So now what? Roll another character? I'm in favor of an officer this time.
>>25574248"So this is for the Empire. It's really something!"
>>25574408Damn it man. You dun goofed. > "tormtrooper Quest Part 5: Proving grounds ( part 2)"> "tormtrooper"And the description said too much. You gotta lead people in.
>>25574413Straight out of the academy, inspired by a story of personal sacrifice by a simple storm-trooper and filled with the righteous conviction that the Empire is right!
>>25574435oopsmy badImma bad person and should feel bad
>>25574374giving us a fuck up then taking it awaynot coolAll I wanted was TK-392 to live
>>25574435I was going to archive it man, you didn't have to worry about that.
>>25574438And he's a Rodian-in-denial.>I'm gonna be a stormtrooper!>Are you human?>N-no...>Then get out.
Based on this image alone, I would say we go be a scout.
>>25574450No anon. This is dishonorable. You must commit Sudoku.>>25574466Please work your magic, OP.
>>25574394It's too bad really. Now we have to make another character suffer from PTSD and do crazy things.
>>25574479brb, going to go rewatch.
I would like a horror themed Star Wars campaign.
>>25574463I'm sorry man but I thought the good rolls would keep on rolling so I counted it out for this thread, but what I wrote I wrote and I can't take it back. I started this quest not knowing how popular it would become.I will run another game in the same universe, but not with 392. I need to research better systems in order to make this run smoothly; I've been looking at mini-six in particular.
>>25574562It's fine Grand MoffAt the very least you, TK-392 died a hero
>>25574562>but I thought the good rolls would keep on rolling
>>25574562Don't be sorry. It's popular because the bad rolls happened and there were consequences.I'd really like a dark horror bounty hunter quest and/or a horror smuggler. Either works really.
>>25574603>>25574594>>25574604A heroic death is all that we could of asked for.
>>25574604smugglers and bounty hunters suck
>>25574298Musta been something she said.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lqqVgXPclsE
>>25574562Nah, it was great GM. In a dark and cruel world, we find an oddly tranquil peace in death.A horror smuggler would be pretty cool, if we're moving away from being Empire-centric.
>>25574497>25571101Archived and ready to go!
I usually dislike /tg/ quest threads due to excessive waifu shit and uttterly infallible and invincible protagonists with 13 year old buddies.This one surprised me quite pleasantly. Well-written, good pace, and well - yeah. Consequences.Good job, Grand Moff. This was legitimately good, and I'd love to see more.
>>25574562>but I thought the good rolls would keep on rollingRegardless TK-392 died a hero, maybe now he can be with his old squad and CO ;__;
Farewell TK-392 we barely knew theelets us use this to remember and curse /tg/ Dice and all the PC deaths they have wrought
Thanks GM, great quest. If you're starting another I'd also love to see a smuggler or demolition expert
>>25574662>and I'd love to see more.Too bad you won't because TK-392 is dead.
>>25574743He said he plans to make more stories. Whatever quest threads he does, I'd love to follow them.
Would you guys like to still be in the Imperial army or would you like to move on to a different area? A bounty hunter, a smuggler, a rebel infiltrator, hell I can even make you a cantina owner if you want to.
>>25574792I vote for Imperial officer. Either field or intelligence. Nothing too high up, of course.
>>25574792If by "rebel infiltrator" you mean we are from Imperial intelligence and we are infiltration the rebellion then I would vote for that.
>>25574820TIE fighter quest?
>>25574838Star Destroyer quest.
>>25574838Yup. Though if you plan to keep running, make a general "Imperial Military quest" so we can see all the dead guy's who came before.
>>25574838Imperial spy quest.
>>25574792>TIE fighter quest?OH GOD THIS
>>25574848So after a few of these we can actually put up a " hall of heroes" type of memorial with all the character's names? That sounds awesome!
>>25574330Here you go anon.
>>25574838>TIE fighter quest?YES
>>25574880Yeah, but I'm shit for names so you make one for us.
>>25574884I fucking love you.
>>25574838TIE Fighter quest, hell yes!Man, if we can live long enough to get put into a TIE Defender squadron, that'd be epic!
Hmm... it still says "tormtrooper quest" up on the archive.
>>25574905If we're going with the 'hall of imperial heroes' idea, which we should. I think it'd make a good image for the OP.TK's sacrifice will be forever remembered, as will his loyalty and commitment to the Empire.
>>25574936That's it. Name it Imperial Heroes Quest.
>>25574936So... when will your next thread be Moff?
So I'm all ready for tie fighter quest. Any idea when we can look for it?
>>25574966>>25574974Wait, " Imperial Heroes Quest" or "TIE fighter Quest"?
>>25574900Defenders are for fags.The true Elite fly the Interceptor.
>>25574996imperial heroes is the series, tie fighter is the next adventure
>>25574996Make "Imperial Heroes" the general one. We can switch around between whatever we feel like as we die.
>>25574996Imperial heroes quest. But the next segment is going to have us stepping into the shoes of a tie fighter pilot yeah?
>>25574996Heroes Quest. As I doubt we'll be a TIE pilot for long...
>>25574969Next week. I need time to recuperate and think up of a new story and a new system that we can use that'll be more reliable but still challenging.
>>25575001Imperial Heroes Quest. TK-392 might have been the first to die, but I doubt he will be the last.
>>25574996the whole series can be known as Imperial Heroes Quest, the different characters like TK-392 and the new guy in TIE fighter quest are just different chapters of the same story
Imperial Heroes: TIE Fighter
>>25575010>>25575013>>25575015>>25575016Alright, " Imperial Heroes" will be the series and " TIE fighter quest" will be the next installment.
>>25575029Are you implying that some farmboy in a T65 stands a chance against the finest in Imperial training and equipment? Because that's just absurd.
>>25574838That sounds epic.When we die in that quest it has to be as epic as thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RW_hGOFukMQ
>>25575041Someone add Imperial Heroes to the archive if you can. I don't know how.

>>25575041OP, when can we expect the next quest?And you might wanna look into getting a twitter to give quest announcements.
What's sad is this quest made me realize how much I love Star Wars when it's done well and yet we have a new Star Wars movie being directed by J.J. Abrams...
>>25575082I already have a TwitterGrandMoff2
>>25575082As I said before, next week. I may start sooner depending on how quickly I can find a new system to use.
>>25575138Why not have a different system depending on the quest? You could look at ones that have a lot of space/ship combat for this one.
>>25575138Great. I'm sorry I didn't notice it before, dem tears keep getting in my eyes...
>>25575158Well at this point I'm trying to find a system to use that I haven't made up by and large.
>>25575181Maybe look at the Star Wars saga edition stuff? I know it covers space combat (although I don't know how well) and since this is a Star Wars game it might be cool.
>Lurked from thread one>See thisBravo Moff. Just. Fucking. Bravo.
I turn up late and the quest is over... I told you guys, I warned you guys.I know the next one will be great but it won't be the same without 392...Also, Moff, giving us a freebie for 1 thread only is a massive dick move, quests last more than a single thread, anything you do 1 in carries on to the next, never forget this, nor assume things will go to plan.RIP 392.
Wow guys. Fantastic thread.This has inspierd me to reboot one of my old quest threads. Could use some help coming up with ideas though.....
