I seem to recall something about the Sun making a dozen or so revolutions
around the galatic center since the "dawn of man".
What I'm concerned with here is what visuals are being communicated between

If I viewed this as the depth of a wound and allow a minimum thickness of
Joe Average around 6 inches then I could start to set a depth for a point of
Of course this is complicated by a number of issues but wouldn't be
impossable I think.
If both the player and GM know that 1pt of damage from a sword blade
