Can we take off with a forest inside the engine?

After missing a couple of weeks' gaming (one planned, one very much unplanned) we were back on Gerrenthum, disposing of a dead Stormtrooper by staging a hoverbike crash. There was some commotion at a nearby base, which ended in Rhan, not terribly closely followed by Nole, running up a mountain trying to help a fellow Rebel out by killing Stormtroopers. Konvoru helped by firing the ships guns at a group of Stormtroopers ... causing a crater, which launched assorted bits of woodland into the ship's engine. NG was not well pleased ...

Doc fixed up all the injured parties, and it turned out the guy fleeing the Men in White were the person we were supposed to have met with previous session. He took us to a nearby fallback base and introduced us to the handful of Rebels on site.

NG set to work on fixing things that needed fixing, Konvoru helped herself to the local flora (flower arrangement is very important), and Nole learned how to drive a hoverbike because it had a massive gun on it and he wanted one of those. Rhan was not very pleased when all of the Rebel's munitions stash had been brough aboard the ship "for safe-keeping in case we need to evacuate very quickly". Doc had the more sensible idea to install some med pods for later.

Planning of what we're actually supposed to do, mission-wise, ensued ...

Star Wars Roleplaying Game

“The Three Peak Challenge is more of a minor peak and two steep hills.”

“Go back to where you came from and take your weird culture with you!”
“What, Birmingham?”

Player 1: “One day I’m going to meet a Scandinavian …”
Player 2 (looking at the two Swedes at the table): “‘One day’?”

“Aren’t Swedish politics currently aligned with Donald Trump?”
“No, Hitler.”

Player: “I’m just relying on the game master.”
GM: “I wouldn’t do that.”

“We want all the XP now. Up front.”

“Many Bothans died giving us this information. They didn’t have to, we just hate them.”

“I’m gonna google ‘words without vowels’. There must be at least a couple.”

“It’s in 45 minutes. Let’s see if we remember.”

“Every day is a rainy day on Kashyyyk.”

“I want a mangled corpse, that’s all I care about.”

(after explaining what the dice symbols are called)
“It’s okay, you won’t remember in three minutes.”

“Anyone else have a bad feeling about this? – It’s Star Wars, I have to say it. It’s the law.”

Player: “Please tell me the contact wasn’t dressed like a Stormtrooper.”
GM: “Inside, I’m going ‘DAMN!’”

Doc: “There’s no response.”
Konvoru: “Did you turn it on?”

Nole (shooting a Stormtrooper): “Take that, you white plastic bastard!”

“There’s a forest in your engine!”

Konvoru (shooting with the ship’s guns): “A contingency of Stormtroopers has been dismantled!”

Doc: “I’ll stab you with something else.”
Nole: “Hopefully not a knife.”

“Can we take off with a forest inside the engine?”

NG: “All I wanted was a simple mission.”
Rhan: “Fix now, complain later.”

Player 1: “What’s your character’s name?”
Player 2: “Nole.”
GM: “Just think of Noel Edmunds.”

(Humming LotR theme) “Wrong franchise. They’re taking the Hobbits to the Death Star?”

“We didn’t shoot down the tie fighters, we eviscerated them with lasers. Or to use a keyword from earlier: we dismantled them.”

GM: “Shhh!”
Player: “I’m having too much fun.”

“We are terrible people.”
“No, we’re the only good people.”

Doc: “What’s that?”
Konvoru: “It’s a charging port.”
Doc: “What’s it for?”
Konvoru: “Charging things.”

(Nole has just finished loading the big guns on the ship)
GM: “That’s it for the big guns.”
Player: “You shouldn’t have said that.”
Nole: “There are small guns?”
GM: “Yes. Do you want them?”
Nole: “GUNS!!!”

Nole: “In case we need to leave at a moment’s notice, all their guns are packed. I might not tell them where I’ve hidden them all …”

NG: “The illegal weaponry has been dealt with appropriately.”
Nole: “What does that even mean?!”

“He’s called Nogger? Like the ice cream? – Well, at least one person got that.”

Konvoru: “Flower arranging is very important.”
Nole: “HOW is flower arranging important to the Rebel Alliance?! They’re not guns!”

Konvoru: “I’m so power playing this. No one will beat me on flower arrangement!”

And hopefully now we're all back on a regular schedule again.
