The TTH Dungeons & Dragons Site has a new article up about Death in the upcoming DDO: Stormreach.
Zed has experienced many an epic battle and at least one unexpected death in his adventures playing the pen-and-paper (PnP) Dungeons & Dragons. Now, he gives us an inside look at how death is handled in the PnP game, and how it’s being treated in Dungeons & Dragons Online.
“Whether it was players’ forgetfulness, boldness, stupidity, or who knows what… the result was a five man ‘total wipe’ as we know them in MMOGs. What killed them: A huge dragon; an army of trolls; a legion of undead; a mad necromancer? No, a gardener; a solitary bugbear gardener armed with a scythe.”
If you're like me and have never died *crosses fingers, eyes and toes at THAT lie* You may want to read it here
