Since Episode VII is almost upon us, I thought it time to share one of my favorite webcomic, Darths and Droids. The story follows a group of gamers through the years as they experience role playing in the Star Wars universe (with the assumption that the movies do no exist in that universe).
The writers, The Comic Irregulars, make use of screen captures of all the movies cut into a comic style page. The comic features a well written story with in jokes and plays on Star Wars. The nice addition to the comic is that every page has some interesting facts and ideas relating to Star War, Sci Fi Gaming, Game Mastery, World Building, etc. I’d suggest for any GM to read the comic for the idea at the bottom.
Oh and the description of Jar Jar by the player Sally (See Page 20);
Obi-Wan: What does our new friend look like? Obi-Wan: That's you, sis. Jar Jar: Mesa got biiiig long floppy bunny ears... Jar Jar: ... and a tongue like an anteater! Jar Jar: And mesa face is kind of like a pony and mesa coloured peachy pinky white! Qui-Gon: You should have eyes on stalks so that you can see behind you. Qui-Gon: That'd be so cool. Jar Jar: Yeah! Mesa has that too! Qui-Gon: You look awesome! GM: I've run Call of Cthulhu with less ghastly sounding monsters. Qui-Gon: I like the voice too.
Which is such an apt description and pure comedy gold for the character.
