Though it has very little grounds in realism, I believe I can in fact explain how one gets stabbed in the ear while the weapon passes through the chest armor.

Standing to the side, crouching, at a STEEP upward angle. It would enter the armor just below where your ribcage is, slide across your flesh, come up in the neck-hole or through the pauldron-area, and pierce said ear.
Especially if your a woman and the weapon is a spear or something, if you were wearing leather it could go through one of your tits and hit the ear on the other side

Wow, that's actually really friggin' awesome looking.

OMG yes!!!  Thank you!!!

Totally not a narcissist.

I used an elf. Levelled him in the art of the blade. Sent him alone against the Kobold cave.



Hilarity ensued, I got zerg kobold rushed and was pushed off a 4 z-level cliff. Survived and was rushed again by the ones at the bottom.

*STAB STAB STAB*

...



Tried again with another elf, this time alone, again. I went to the ground so gravity wasn't a problem. Was surprised to see the <100 kobold horde routed by a small YAK group and a Rock Lion who I renamed Fenrir. Revenge was mine and me and the lion won the day. I also got a raw adamantine amulet from all that, it was just lying around.

I was stabbed in the ear through my chest armor.

You can't explain that.

FTW
That's so epic, that's gonna be my new signature.

I can. You modded ears to appear on your body. Otherwise it's impossible because an attack can only target a single main bodypart, and an ear is attached to a head and thus cannot be hit when you hit a chest armor. Unless you wear it on your head :).

This mountain titan was made out of steam, then got shot before I even started.  Talk about anticlimax.

I just had one today. I had heard that throwing weapons were nerfed to a more normal state, but I was just now proven wrong.

Is this normal or something?

@toxiciron: You CAN kill someone (in DF) by using nothing but your hands. (Other than strangling/breaking em) You can wrestle their own clothes off and throw it at them, it will travel at the speed of sound and break them.

That happens, try getting an appendage removed and throwing it back at the one who removed it. Vengeance.

I took it to the Arena, chainmail shirts deflect attacks targeting the ears, eyes, or nose but not the head. The only modding I'm doing is genesis.

What surprises me most is that the coat not only had a blunt impact into his rib, but it STUCK inside him! I just can't picture a coat being stuck in like that after being thrown... I guess it might break a rib if it was, for example, shot from a cannon, but it being left sticking out of him? So crazy...

This makes me think of the thrown lion lodged in another lion picture. :D

I believe this is the second or third time I've posted a comment about throwing phalluses but that won't stop me.

"The spinning Adventurer's phallus strikes the fish dissector in the phallus, bruising the skin.
The Adventurer's phallus has lodged firmly in the wound!"

I'm not actually entirely sure that would be possible but even the concept amuses (and worries) me.

WTF. I thought that blunt attacks for a silver sword would be as effective as they would be from a normal attack from a blunt item. Guess what? APPARENTLY NOT.
You expected slapping someone with the flat of a sword to be as lethal as clonking someone with a mace?  ???

I'm guessing it must have been one of those old chainmail shirts that had the chainmail hood. IT waould protect stuff ont he sides of the head bu I imaagine if you actually went for the head, you could just stab them in the face. Or there's strips of chainmail in a loop on the head.

That would make sense but aren't there also chainmail hoods? (I play genesis so much I can't remember what's vanilla)
