I was planing on talking about how glad I was not to have to be working extra hours this week giving up my raiding and fencing time and only being able to draw when I should be sleeping but it looks like the new girl isn't working out and I might have to pick up some of the slack again. Hopefully not as much this time though, I'm not sure what missing another week would do to the others in the guild.

Nicely played, Robin. And man, how many points must she have dumped into recovery? Or does she naturally get granted massive knockback/knockdown resistance/recovery for being a hero? 'Cause damn, if it's that, I'm gonna start convincing the universe I'm a main character. That level of invulnerability is worth the attention.

At some point when i have way too much time one my hands I want to sit down and work out a pen and paper rpg where "main character" is one of the classes (love interest and comic relief being examples of others). the main character would of course have to have something like the diehard feat (or anything that lets then keep fighting when they should be dead) and probably something that lets then recover hit points when they recover from a near death experience in combat. since they always seem a lot healthier after recovering from blacking out then before that last hit.

So while this world doesn't have literally points for Robin to stack she is more stubborn then your average hero. So even if the redshirt in today's comic was a hero and could recover as fast as her, he probably wouldn't have the willpower to get up for another beating.

Aye, aye. I just assume that every universe has an invisible stat system somewhere in the background, since I've yet to come across a full universe that can't be considered an MMORPG. 'Course I use a mostly undefined system that is incredibly expansive, but then, I'm guessing that may be what GURPS is for.

I understand completely. I can (and do) explain 95% of life with gaming (usually wow or dnd), or writing metaphors with a few psych ones thrown in for the fun of it. Although there was a month in china where i had been playing too much Go and started seeing everything in Go moves. those are harder to translate into something that others can understand then gaming (although even there you can never count on someone having played that game).
