    "a track meet nearly made him dead meat"

    ugh... anyway, that has to hurt. The javelin thrower is a backstabber.

    Did anyone else almost piss themselves because their volume was turned up too loud and the BANG at the beginning scared them?

    No?

    Just me?

    My dad went to school with a guy who threw the javelin. At a tournement one day, this little girl ran across the field just after he threw his javelin. It hit her in the back and pinned her to the ground. She died. He never threw javelin again and was never quite right after it. I think there was some sort of relationship between him and the little girl; like brother/sister or something. I can`t remember. Would have to ask my dad again.

    Aelad, that`s terrible. I would definitely not be right after that. My dad has a friend who used to do target shooting with his son, until one day when his son committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. His dad isn`t the same, it even affected my dad, he came in to check on me at like 5am when he heard about it, making sure I knew he loved me. It`s always hard when young people die.

    Give your dad a hug, even if he barely knew the guy.

    Baathazag, The javelin thrower had ranged expertise so that gives him a +2 to his dmg...
    Also, since the guy was stretching his def was down... had the thrower landed a cirtical hit, he would have died.

    Javelin thrower was attacking from behind, so the runner`s natural +3 Agility was negated. Were it a frontal attack, he would have dodged it easily.

    "had the thrower landed a cirtical hit, he would have died."

    Well, don`t forget though, the guy was wearing the Socks of Serendipity which gave him Luck +12.

    Father did this - Thre the school record and it went straight through a guy`s neck. He lived fortunatley, but because the javelin didn`t hit the ground, my dad failed to get a record.

    Unfair or what...

    I had a joke lined up about the guy not running fast enough, but he wasn`t actually running, but was stretching... so, it wouldn`t work here. Ah heck, I`m gonna use it anyway:

    The thrower was just encouraging him to run faster.

    idk bout you, but i throw javelin and the guy with the javelin must have had some kind of hangover to throw it so off especially in a professional track and field meet...
    and the guy getting skewered by the jav was in the wrong place at the wrong time, that sucks.
