Damage on a Miss

Apparently there is a big dust up about this concept being used in D&DN. I know little about it and have no opinion on it right now, but I will have an idea shortly. In any respect, a conversation on rpg.net cropped up about the discussion about DoaM. It got funny quickly.

So, a poster named Carfish had a funny take. I won't go into details, its on page 7 of the discussion, but his money quote comment is here (you might have to read the previous page's postings to understand how it ended up here.

Which is why accurately drawn boob armor creates the 'bikini' effect: the plates cannot be made any larger while still retaining their structural integrity. A breastplate that covers much more than a woman's areolas would literally disintegrate in real life.

It's not sexism - it's realism.

So that explains this



But not this

It's a College Humor video called Female Armor Sucks.

In regards to Catfish's quote, he (she?) seems to be saying that boob-shaped armor needs to have a bikini design - rather than, say, an all-encompassing one like plate mail - or it will fall apart.

Personally, I think that that post is a superlative example of Poe's Law.

that is a funny video!

And btw, I like Damage on a miss rules (or as we call it "Drama on a miss." When done properly, it works.
