Okay, now for the real question. We all know Luffy will fight Arlong. Some of us know how this fight will end. What will Luke do and were you in a similar situations at your table?

No offense... but I can't really follow the thread of logic of that question...

He probably means "What kind of innovative min-max nonsense will Luke pull for Luffy to be able to justifiably triumph over the brute force min-max nonsense that is the Arlong boss fight?"

... Somehow it only JUST struck me to wonder how the hell she is managing to hold his neck that long against to force of the "rubber" trying to snap it back to normal. :?

He is after all a "a rubber man" not Mr. Fantastic...

She's a farmer so she has a high strength rating...?

I've always pictured the Gomu Gomu no mi's power to be allowing him to be treated as rubber or organic, whichever would be more beneficial.

In other words, Luffy can snap back and forth as quickly as he can by treating himself as rubber when extending his limbs, and as psudeo-organic while retracting them by having his muscles pull on the arm.

This means he's actually quite easy to stretch while unconscious/paralyzed.

That makes sense.

"Rubber"

I agree that if he were entirely elastic, things would make less sense. Gomu Gomu no Pistol for example: If his fist extended from a standstill, he would actively be fighting the elasticity. Instead, the pseudo-organicness simply allows him to stretch for increased range.

It's more that he can change his elasticity at-will

He can't stretch like Mr Fantastic, he can only stretch with force applied behind it, like a punch or a kick, but he can choose how much he stretches by changing just how elastic his body is

I kind of read it as him being more of a putty right now. Seawater drains all of his strength and leaves him all limp and jello-y, so his neck is still elastic but without any of the tension that is usually there that would make it snap back

I'm mostly wondering why his neck stretches but not his upper body or legs.

But that's clearly not what we see. The neck HAS tension, otherwise it would lay along the bottom of the pool, not be a straight line from the head to the body.

On top of this, when his body is released, he gets shot out like a slingshot, suggesting there is still elastic tension.

Does make me wonder if his body still remains rubber when he dies though...

"Fun fact about CPR"

If done properly it's very likely for the victim's ribs to ger broken. In fact, if the ribs get broken with the first compressions it will actually make future compressions easier. But since Luffy is a rubber man his ribs won't get broken, but they also make the compressions easier from the start. +2 circumstance bonus, anyone?

Luffy has a massive passive resistance to bludgeoning damage (on account of his fruit-transformed state) so unless the compressions are active attacks, they probably won't break through that DR.

Also I think at this point it isn't quite CPR, rather it's a technique to force all the water out of his lungs.

Even if the compressions don't cause damage they still affect him. Luffy's DR comes from his rubber body stretching and bending to absorb most of the bludgeoning damage. In other words, his body makes the compressions easier by letting Genzo apply force without resistance, instead of trying to mantain its shape like a normal ribcage would do.

"The sheer Power of positive Thinking ... or how Broken Intimidate really is"

We DID have such a situation.
In our 3.75 Game (for those not slang-savvy: This means D&D 3.5 and pathfinder Material is allowed, in our case minus all the completely gamebreaking nonsense, the mostly game brewaking nonsense we left in^^).

We were facing a Pit Fiend as final Boss in our Level 10-12 Campaign, he was massively powerful,w e ... less so (a Psychic Warrior, a Cleric of Plants and Cahos whose player did scoff DivinePower/Might and a Half Dragon Barbarian....and my little Outsider Warlock).

We had been forewarned that the Boss was coming and his last henchman said he was "out of this world" (and we understood).
The only valuable thing we got out of him was the Pit Fiends Name, but with at most 5-10 Minutes time and no more avaliable plane shift or teleport there was nothing we could do with that.

So we did buff up, and there he comes, radiatiing brimstone-smelling Flames, over 12 Feet of muscled and magical Evil.

We were InGame and outgame seriously doubting our chances to survive.


Forward steps my Warlock and says "We knew you would come here, at this time, Grakhalmurakhor. We know you and your vile deeds, and we are prepared to end them here.
We killed your thralls, we disrupted all your plans ... and we are prepared.

Face your end."

The GM decided that for pure cojones (and the situanional modifier of dropping his name) this valued a +4 to intimidate.

I attribute it to both the Warlock being lauded as weak and him being not THAT an experienced GM that he ... did overlook quite some other modifiers when he thought that would maybe give me a chance of 18-20 to pull off anything helpful.

To itarate: at that Moment my Character had a Charisma of 35 (25 natura due to Race and Levelups, +6 through the Clerics upgraded Eagles Splendor, +4 through his Cape).
He had maximum ranks in Intimidate (ergo 15 at level 12), Skill Focus Intimidate (+2), Improved Skill Focus Initidate (+2), Persuasive (+4 due to Intimidate ranks) the Warlocks Spell Bonus and Class Bonus on Intimidate (total +8), a Custom Feat we had built long ago that added+4 to Intimidate when only intimidating a single target (another feat in that chain allowed to simultaneuouslyi inti8midate up to Level+Charisma Targets at -4), and +6 through a Custom built Helmet (incidentally made out of Devil Bones^^) to a total Bonus of +45. Then i rolled, an 11. Total of 56. Bang
Now the DC to maximally intimidate a Pit Fiend in a remotely normal situation is quite a bit lower.

Suffice to say that he was quite happy all we desired was that he sign a treaty to not resatart his operation here (it was unfeasable anyway since it relied on subterfuge and we had spread the word before going to his henchmen), not to harass us or mention our success to his superiors (since it would have harmed him anyway) and add a small, not personal, favour from his "hellish underlings" to my Warlock some time within the next year.
Oh, and to leave.


Bang, 300k XP.

Adventure finished.

DM despaired. ^^

"Edit"

Forgot to add the Charisma Bonus, which comes to another +12, so 68 in total, the abovementioned would only have been really good, nod demigodly. ^^
