Arms Don't Work That Way
(Context: playing a star wars rpg session during old republic times; our Wookie DJ, Dewkaza, goes up to a Mandalorian to kill him)
Dewkaza: I grapple the mandalorian in front of me
Dewkaza *rolls* : Natural 20! I pull his arms off!
GM: Alright, roll strength
Dewkaza *rolls* : Uhh. 4
GM: The mandalorian starts screaming and crying
Dewkaza *rolls*: I try again! ….. 4 again
GM: The mandalorian continues screaming and crying as you keep trying and failing to pull his arms off
Me: *makes mock crying and wailing noises*
Droid: Oh my God, I go over and stab him to put him out of his missery!
GM: Ok, the mandalorian is stabbed and STILL alive and is still crying in pain —-all other enemies are defeated; mandalorian is still grappled——
Jedi1: Jeezus, ok I go over and execute him with my lightsaber *rolls* 8
GM: You miss.
Dewkazza: Wait wait one more time! *rolls 14*
GM: You finally rip his arms off and kill him.
