The Last Jedi's Vice Admiral Holdo is a brilliant character.

She comes out of nowhere, looks kinda silly, and won't share her plans, but we're expected to trust her based solely on Leia's word. Much like Poe, the audience is filled with doubt and some level of contempt for her. The fact that she's a woman in authority adds to that contempt for some. Casting a man would have worked too, just on a different level. It had to be an unknown for it to work, regardless.

When it turns out that Holdo's plan was solid (albeit desperate), Poe learns the error of his ways and that he should be a team player rather than a solitary hotshot. This lesson is echoed to the audience.

Now, one could argue that it was stupid of her not to share her plans with Poe, but then again, he's not in the "need to know" command circle. One could just as easily argue that he was out of line for demanding an explanation, but we let that slide because he's a protagonist.

So basically, the movie's creators made a character that would be easy to hate so that we would fall into the same trap Poe did. Some of us recognized this at the end. Some of us continued hating Holdo because we didn't understand (or refused to accept) the lesson she was written to convey.

Whether or not such a lesson belongs in a Star Wars movie is a whole other argument. I think there's no better place, and the original trilogy is full of such lessons.

Last Saturday's play-test went great! Got lots of useful information and I will be making changes to the rules system for the next play-test. I'm going to be writing up a little "lessons learned" entry soon. Stay tuned!
Still on track for the first PT playtest this weekend. The premise? The players are asked to investigate the disappearance of ancient elven artifacts from the Clockwork City museum of History. 

What nefarious shenanigans are afoot? Stay tuned!
First playtest of the Peculiar Tales role-playing game will take place on March 24th. This is my first time testing the nearly complete rules. I will be sure to write you all about it once testing is done!
Interesting roleplaying game design discovery: Once your rules are nicely laid out, expect to have to gut them once you start thinking character creation.
