Zack: So we played Traveller last weekend. Spent seven hours making a character with a history, flaws, and motivations as long as a novella. Mapped out his whole career and all his relationships. Used software to figure out how much fuel my spaceship would use. Then I was killed by a jet shark.
Steve: What's that!?
Zack: You know what a jet is, right?
Steve: Yeah, dude, like an airplane.
Zack: Yeah, it was that, plus a shark. It was a jet shark.
Steve: Is that it then? You quit?
Zack: Nah, I'm making a new character. I hired a couple of temps and I've got them working in shifts.
