You should only ask practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face.
To prevent your question from being flagged and possibly removed, avoid asking subjective questions where … we are being asked an open-ended, hypothetical question: “What if ------ happened?”
Obviously this question isn't an actual problem as it's noted that it's just for fun, and it's quite obviously hypothetical. Also the question as written is not about RPGs, but rather is a hypothetical Physics question with RPG trappings.
How could this question be modified so that it matches the rules of the FAQ?
Can a D&D character be launched into space?
Ok, this is just for fun. Community Wiki away.
Gilbert the Goblin saw something glinting in the water off of a dock. Ever the curious little creature, he jumped into the water and swam down the 10 feet to retrieve the item. Ooh, a shiny gold coin! Still inverted and reaching for the coin, he decided to place the gold piece in his Deep-Pocket Cloak (200 cubic feet of extradimensional space) before swimming back to the surface. He pulled aside a flap, exposing the many pockets in the cloak and FOOM! Gilbert was launched into orbit from the sudden force of the upward buoyancy created by the extradimensional space in his pockets.
Assumptions, clearly stated by the Rule of Awesome:
- D&D Physics treat the entire 200 cubic feet of extradimensional space as displacing an equal volume of water.
- Gilbert and his cloak and his shiny gold coin are not torn apart by the sudden force.
- Gilbert weighs 40 lb, the cloak weighs 1 lb, and his coin is weightless.
- All force is applied along a straight line perpendicular to the surface of the water.
- The gravity is identical to the average Earth gravity.
- The density of the atmosphere is identical to that typical of our Earth.
- Gilbert assumes the ideal position for minimum air and water resistance
What height does Gilbert reach?
