1. For prospective new members, a word of warning: don't use common names like Dennis, Simon, or Kenny if you decide to create an account. Spammers have used them all before you and gotten those names flagged in the anti-spam databases. Your account registration will be rejected because of it.
    Dismiss Notice
  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.

    It's nothing about her phasing. It's not like they're wearing armor, or anything.

    I just couldn't see all four dying so quickly.

    It's not impossible. It's just unlikely.

    As such, I'm feeling a little SOD strain, that's all.

    Yup.

    Brian took two to the body (which he would've survived, given any sort of medical attention) then one to the head (which he wouldn't).

    Rachel took a shot to the carotid artery. She bled out in less than a minute.

    Lisa took a hit to the kidney and died from internal bleeding.

    Alec had a severe concussion from being kicked in the head, then got shot in the chest, which punched a hole through several important organs. He bled out to the point that Kid Win's actions in plugging the exterior wounds didn't actually stop him from dying.

    By the time Amy got to them, life signs had ceased.

    By the time the ambulance got there, they were basically beyond saving.

    So yes, while it's amazing what you can survive, the fact remains that this is amazing because of how often people do die from it.
