A stranger approached me recently with a two-part question, and I wasn't sure of the answers. So, I knew I could find the answer here. Thanks for your time.

1. Which of these actions will cause me the most damage?
a. Tug on Superman's cape
b. Spit into the wind
c. Pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
d. Mess around with Jim

2. Based on your answer above, how much damage will I suffer?
a. d4
b. d6
c. d8
d. d10
e. d12
f. d20

You simply don't mess around with Jim. (D) Of course.

If you did then if they had a thousand sided I would use it. 1d100 = (25) = 25

Frankly, I'd be more worried about Slim.

If you mess around with Jim you don't roll a die, you just randomly draw several puzzle pieces from the bag and discard them. Then you put the puzzle together.

a. Tug on Superman's cape - d20. Superman is one tough mofo.


b. Spit into the wind - d4. However, gale force winds would be d8.


c. Pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger - d4, unless he's wearing the mask as part of a bondage ritual. Then it would be d8.


d. Mess around with Jim - Jim has been dead for a long time, so messing around with him would do zero damage (unless he becomes a zombie).

Hmmm, good question.

We know that Slim is > Jim.

Spit doesn't really hurt, unless it's in the eye, but what are the chances of that? It is quite demoralizing, but that isn't the question.

We also know that both Kal-El and The Lone Ranger are good guys. If they were bad guys, then the question would be: Which hurts more, being punched by a man with insane amounts of strength or being shot with silver bullets? Neither seems to be a good option.

But they aren't. At most you might get a stiff right cross from Mr. Ranger.

However, Jim is one bad man. Who seems would hit you while you are down.

So, my conclusion is this: As long as you are not named Slim, messing with Jim appears to cause you the most damage.

I doubt Jim would be packing a broadsword or any +1 weapons, so I went with a d12 and he did 10 damage to your face.

Certainly not someone from the South Side of Chicago.

Let's be honest.

If tugging on superman's cape were all that dangerous, there'd be no 8 year old boys in Metropolis.

Tough call, but there's sure to be one less set of footsteps when it was over.

Jim Croce really had a thing for songs about tough dudes. And those songs sure are similar.

If I can tie in another thread, it just blew my mind to find out he also sang "Time in a Bottle."
