Permanent Deaths and their consequences in tabletop gaming

No.80500765 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
There is no excuse for permanent deaths in a fantasy rpg for a variety of reasons that I will list:

>B-but I don't want to ruin muh immersion
1. You're ruining the group’s immersion by having them take time away from the game to roll a new character.

>B-but it will destroy any dramatic tension!
2.You know what destroys the tension for people in a fantasy story? Having to be brought back to the real world and re-roll their character.

>Deaths attributed to dice rolls are completely fair
3. No they aren't. I'm already not a fan of dice. Adding an element of randomness doesn't enhance the gameplay for me or anyone else.

Hey remember in other games when you died, it meant you were dead forever?

Oh wait, that didn't happen, because you could just load from the save point and try again. That's what tabletop needs to be like. Just give us a fucking save point, that's all I ask.

I don't give a shit if you think it, "destroys dramatic tension". I want to advance through the fucking game. Not listen to a failed novelist trying to salvaged his shit story. If you can't give me a fucking save point, then you're a shitty DM. And if you're gonna play me like that, I'll just start my own campaign, and it'll be way better than yours and it'll have blackjack and hookers too.

Bottom line, stop being so anal about the dumb rules. You're ruining the fun by "adding tensions" and "muh realism".

The elves have invented and exported a new style of women's footwear. The elves call them "stilettos," after the dagger.

Human women are already buying out the whole stock, and prices are soaring.

What are some science fiction rpgs that are somewhat grounded in reality, more like Space Odyssey and less like Star Wars?
