  1. Very cool post. The idea that PCs are totally expendable and not expected to survive is quite unusual. Some of the deaths sound so awesome that it's worth losing the character just to play it:
    "Tavis the Affable, Human Woodcutter: Critically hit by a flaming firebrand thrown by a Minotaur while covered in oil."
    Others sound just humiliating:
    "Pennington, the Human Herder: Fell down stairs"
    Please tell me those stairs were somehow trapped....
