Default Sacrificing the body for Grim Dawn

Anyone doubting my commitment to Grim Dawn - this is what happens when you use your face to cushion the fall of a 12lb aluminum cased laptop while falling down a flight of wooden stairs. As I was falling I just thought "NNNooOoOooOOoo!!1! Not the GDC demo!"

Laptop has a little crack in the back but it seems to run fine, so, assuming I'm able to walk tomorrow, it should be a worthy trade-off.

Oh man! Wow, that must smart. I'm sorry to hear that even happened, because you just got over a cold.

Is it more of a slice and less of a concussion..?

Also, where are you taking the demo?

Please be careful Medierra! We don't doubt your commitment; we know you've just been very busy!

If only I could send you some health potions...

Get well soon!

I think it was like 75% slashing dmg, 25% blunt. I didn't black out or anything, so I don't think I have much of a concussion but I do have a bit of a headache. Luckily the laptop has 0% pierce ratio or this might have ended badly. Man, I'm such a geek.

Other parts of my body took more blunt damage but I guess I must have thick bones because nothing appears to broken, just awfully sore. My wife is monitoring me closely. She made quite a fuss over it but I've had worse.

Trivia Challenge!

Med's face has also sustained a beating from:

A) 9-Iron Golf Club
B) Brass Knuckles
C) Granite Fireplace

Hah, well, at least your describing it in terms I can understand.

As for the trivia, well, I do not know, though the use of the term 'beating' leads me to either A or B. However, a granite fireplace sounds almost as specific as a 9-iron golf club.

I don't know if you even like golf, as golfing tends to bore me, but not everyone thinks that, however, maybe the situation in question had nothing to do with golf.

Brass Knuckles seems too uncommon, I mean who owns brass knuckles, let alone uses it to punch someone unintentionally, or maybe it was intentional.

I'll randomly pick one -

B. Hah.

Maybe someone who knows more of your history can answer?

No batrachos greaves? Everyone knows you become immortal to physical damage with that, what a noob.

Whoa! Nice gash you got there

Was the laptop wearing "armor of transference"? That could explain a lot.

As for you being a geek... I think that's kind of the norm here! Maybe part of the reason a lot of us hang around this forum and talk about more than just the latest on GD?

Gotta go with either "C" or "All of the above" on the trivia challenge.

Now for the bright side of all this. After having a cold and falling down the stairs, you'll feel on top of the world once you're all healed up! Good thing you've got someone to nurse you back to health.
