If anything ever boggled my mind in role playing, then it is the term "soak", as in "soaking damage". Soaking brings pictures of wet clothes to mind, as making stuff wet is what the word is in fact used for. And it just has that annoying itchy sound to it. So, in short, here are my questions:
- When was the term "Soaking damage" coined?
- Why was it in fact called "soaking"?
I hope my question makes sense...
