Padmé on the infinite canvas

Darths and Droids uses a bonus strip to show us the miracle that is real roleplaying...

Padmé: I attempt an Overbear Medium-sized Biped (Winged). 9.
Pete: No good. It makes a Grasping Fend. It has you by the shoulder.
Padmé: I try an Elbow Swipe, while going for a Leg Hook to pull him off balance. 13.
Pete: It counters with a Wing Sweep and One-Legged Clinch.
Padmé: I use the Seize and Vice-grip manoeuvre. 16.
Pete: You have it by the ... upper arms, but need to make a Retention roll against Squirming with a -2 for Slimy Skin
In excruciating detail.

And possibly the longest web comic ever.

And it shows why Pete shouldn't be trusted with grappling rules. We all know at least one Pete from our gaming days.

And don't forget the endless rolls for the speeder chariot race!

Not sure what game system that is, but I'm VERY glad I don't use it.
