jhkimrpg: Character Death
I don’t often link to livejournal because I’m not sure how many folks are in the community. But since I think more than half of the thirty or so readers here are, I’ll call you attention to this entry. It sums up most of my thoughts and techniques for character death.
I do think it is about choices for drama, or genre perhaps, more than game system. Choices should have consequence. Choices are not random, though most random events can be traced to a choice.
I don’t think the Players should let the system dictate such important choices unless you are rpging a military drama or hospital drama where unexpected death is part of the backstory.
