Changing My View on Mortality for Tomorrow Night's Dungeon Crawl Classics Session
I'm not a Killer DM, I'm a Let Them Be Killed if the Fates Will It DM. I've never felt joy when a PC died, and TPKs grate on my Gamer's Soul.
Tomorrow night I need to change my view on PC mortality for a bit. Not only is PC death acceptable, it is to be expected. There is a reason why folks start out with 4 PCs in DCC, as the usual death toll for the zero level peasant swarm is usually somewhere over 50% from the postings I've read. So yeah, I need to be okay with PCs dropping like flies to an electric fly swatter (damn but i love mine! ZAP! and the occasional smell of burnt fly).
I currently have 3 of the 5 PC sheets I'm expecting. Hopefully I get the last 2 before the game.
Should be fun. New set of RPG Rules. New group of players. What could go wrong? ;)
