Was Harry Houdini in the 30's? If so, I'm making a character based on him. Otherwise I'll be a swagman or a shoe-shiner.

Since when is chemistry not a science?

2 hp? I hope attacks are prone to missing, otherwise I'm going to have to make super-broken abilities for my character.

I thought that the idea was that you're not supposed to be fighting; well, you will be, but you're not supposed to go around killing everyone. That's what I got from it.

That's part of it, for sure, but my primary motivation was just preventing fight scenes from stretching on for months on end.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

Can I make a suggestion then? If our character dies, we should be allowed to create a new one who somehow joins the merry band of adventurers.

Ohh that's clever, my group has never managed that. We can spend an entire session on a fight and usually have a couple of arguments. It's exciting.

Dear God, this is so nerdy. I'm not sure if I can handle it.

Can someone explain any of this in a way that is non-super nerd speak? Is that even possible? (You know, for those of us whose group of friends do regular people things, where they just pretend to be themselves.)

I thought Ninja said you were nerdy, and that you own D20s.

But she has to reinforce that she is not as nerdy as everyone else on this nerdy forum that she just happens to be on!

If you're playing, you can come up with a character and learn as you go, probably... This sort of game is very informal until there's the supposed "chance of failure". That's when rules come in.

She is lying.

She is the ultra nerdy one. All about D&D and such.

I'm pretty nerdy, just not in that way. I mean, I read web-comics, for chrissakes.

Everyone and their mum reads webcomics. Have you heard, by the way, that all political cartoons are awful? It is a new trend amongst these crazy internet cartoonists.
