Sometimes gamers get together every week and play intense sessions where they interact and support one another's actions, striving to achieve a common goal in the best spirits of teamwork. And yet they don't know what their fellow gamers do for a living. Or other pertinent stuff that more mundane types of friends readily know about one another.
That guy who plays the elf ranger in your group every week, who you've known for 4 years? Next time you see him, ask him what his last name is.
Anakin: Ben, I don't suppose you'd mind splitting the petrol cost tonight?
Obi-Wan: Sure Annie, that's fair.
Anakin: I'm running a bit short since I lost... um.
Obi-Wan: You lost your job at the restaurant?
Anakin: Don't tell Jim!
GM: You had a job at a restaurant?
R2-D2: You had a job?
Obi-Wan: What happened?
Anakin: It's... complicated.
R2-D2: Did it involve sashimi? Did you set fire to the kitchen? Poison someone important?
Anakin: "It's complicated," means I don't want to talk about it.
R2-D2: So why don't you want to talk about it?
