Episode 195: The Last Jedi and Rogue One

I can’t stand that Galen planned that
But I’m gonna send it straight through a tiny gate
My knees are knocking now that I’m here
Because that Sith lord gives me Sith fear
So while you sit back and wonder why
What prompted Bodhi to help us fly
May the Force help you dodge
I’m tellin’ y’all it’s a sabotage
K-2S0, you ain’t saying nothin’
I can shut you down with a push of a button
But I’m out and I’m gone
But this last scene is going on and on
– “Death Star Sabotage”

In this episode, we talk about The Last Jedi and Rogue One.

Episode 33: Addicted to Hands

Get your Idle Red Hands fix here. The first taste is free and so is the second taste. Hold on, all tastes are free. We would make really bad drug dealers.

In this episode, we look at addiction. Since we live in a country with extremely harsh drug laws (and darn glad of it, officer), we don’t have a lot of advice for the method role players out there. Instead, we discuss different types of addiction and how to include them in your game.
