prokopetz:

I just realised that I’ve suffered every D&D damage type except force and thunder at least once in my life.

 

sidneyia:

radiant?? so you’ve been burnt by a god?

 

prokopetz:

Radiant isn’t specifically a “holy” damage type in D&D; holy magic often inflicts radiant damage, but there’s holy magic with non-radiant damage types (typically fire), and non-holy sources that inflict radiant damage – most relevantly, lasers!

 

ozzieofthedawn:

please explain how you’ve taken necrotic damage

 

prokopetz:

D&D classifies radiation burns as necrotic damage.

 

chicoqore:

now you’ve piqued my interest. how tf did you get radiation burns?

 

prokopetz:

Really bad sunburn.

 

jarl-deathwolf:

It feels… wrong that the sun inflicts necrotic damage. Like Pelor’s life is a lie.

Did you take any concussive injuries like a sound blast? That’d probably qualify for force or thunder.

 

prokopetz:

Maybe Pelor should stop making people’s skin peel off, then. =P

As for the latter, nah, force is D&D‘s “pure magic” damage type, and has the specific attribute of being able to strike intangible or ethereal targets. I don’t know what real phenomenon would be analogous to that, but whatever it is, I’m reasonably certain I’ve never been injured by it!

 

eclairs-of-emptiness:

Wait, how do you take IRL psychic damage?

 

prokopetz:

Posting on Tumblr.
