(Thwack!) Ow! My head!
« on: January 02, 2011, 09:34:47 PM »
So my character keeps getting hit in the head. She doesn't have a helmet, so all these hits keep bypassing her armor.

In another game I'd appeal to the rules that armor is supposed to protect me, but since my character's head is exposed (not to mention the fact she's a head shorter than everyone) I've had to suck it up. Damned misses. Damned 'what honesty demands'

I'm sick of my short, sweet & transgendered Angel getting pistol-whipped! She's now at 9:00 and she has got to stop intervening in other characters' violence.

I'm loving this game; I care about this character so hard it hurts a little.

I love the mental picture of the Angel coming back to the infirmary, now sporting a football helmet.

"Uh... Boss?"
"I got the fucking morphine we needed. Don't. Ask."

Maybe I can scrounge up a bicycle helmet.

What I really should do is get the hell out of town... but damnit, there's my infirmary crew to consider.

After all - in Apocalypse World - they don't happen to have large school assemblies featuring traumatic photos and the wheelchair-bound, permanently disabled former students to warn you against head injury.  You're on your own, buster.
