comment What does it mean to be “worth someone's keep”?
I think also it is a gentle insistence that the disciples should expect to be working, and not just asking for handouts.

comment What is a “mind-share leader”?
This question appears to be strictly about the definition of a word that you could look up in a dictionary or on Wikipedia, so I have voted to close it as a general reference question. However, if you wanted to ask a specific question about how to use this phrase (or some other question like that), I think it would be considered on-topic.

comment Ways to say 'try very hard'
I voted to close because I feel this question is overly broad. I think this question could be improved if you either asked specifically how to use the phrase you have given, or requested an idiomatic phrase for "try very hard" that could not be found in a thesaurus.

comment What is the origin of the term “hit point”?
@T.E.D. Gygax didn't invent the concept, Arneson did. If you read the interview, he came up with it so that the individual battles would last longer. It was an innovation to the classic matrix-style wargames that were popular prior to that. At least, that it how it seems to me, but I may be misinterpreting it.
