Story time today is about withholding food, water, air, something needed for survival.

I happen to have something on that topic. Once upon a time, a wandering mercenary named Ransu was captured. He was put in an iron cage, and food was withheld for two weeks. Having so little fat, he did not fare well. When they did feed him, they gave him bad meat, with only firefruit to weaken the bad taste. He ate it, of course. After a few months, he began to develop a taste for the firefruit, which burns the mouth and stings the nose and eyes. His captors found it most amusing to feed him what they thought was a poison fruit. The fact that he ate all they could give him, and wept as he ate made them assume the firefruit drives you insane.

After he got loose, he always carries a bottle of fire sauce to put on his food. Also, the strong flavor helps cover up the taste of spoiled food when he travels. People think he's some manner of monster, since he puts 'poison' on all of his meals.

Story time is my second favorite thing about this webcomic. :P

Although it seems that story time only appeared when Raxxon, the greatest of them all, joined the comments... Also, I got nothing for story time. Sorry.

Oh, right. The firefruit is really hot peppers.

Just in case it wasn't painfully obvious.

Storytime!
So, in an Avatar the Last Airbender themed campaign, we came across a very powerful waterbender, who after monologuing us into a lull, flooded the entire area, and then insta-freezing top of the water. Nearly the entire party made the reflex save to not be caught by the water.... except our Earthbender. He failed so very hard, and got stuck underwater. And since he was in his very special stone armor, literally could not swim.
However, with his amazing constitution and fortitude saves, he did not drown... for ten rounds. By the time our firebender broke the ice, he still had another ten rounds in him.
Basically, he gave himself the title: The Man Who Can Not Be Drowned....

Pretty much every system I've ever played in sets a round roughly equal to six seconds. Holding your breath for two minutes is pretty impressive, but not even slightly beyond the abilities of normal people.

Unless he wasn't holding his breath, and was just badass enough to survive for ten minutes with two lungs full of water.

"Medic!"

Gonna bust out my ol' orcish favored soul again. (Finally starting more games, so hopefully I'll have more variety soon.)
Anyway, my Neutral Good character's the naïve newcomer to an ostensibly Good-aligned party with a TN rogue, a CN catgirl barbarian, a LG paladin, a LG warblade, a LG paladin, and a CG ranger. I was the only one in this wretched hive of grimdark and sociopathy willing to even consider taking prisoners instead of massacring everyone, but when we found an unconscious prisoner of our latest victims, the ranger and barbarian decided to feed him. (The barb's motive being that he was cute, and the food was laced with stimulants toxic to other races, while the ranger just wanted to be nice... her code of ethics was confusing.) This annoyed the hell out of me, as I saw it as a waste of resources when he's clearly made it this long, and we have limited supplies.
Granted, it was mainly the healing potions they wasted that bugged me... he wasn't critical, so we could've just waited for me to sleep 8 hours and presto! Healed. In retrospect, their players are more accustomed to dealing with injuries ASAP rather than with optimum efficiency than I...
Hmm... doesn't fit story time that well. I did once have him abuse elemental magic, a few IRL textbooks, and Bluffing the DM to briefly turn a crypt into a vacuum, taking out the boss: with the necromancer dead, the assorted undead were... still lethal, actually, but most of us lived.
