My only complaint about Griffin's Podcast Dungeon Mastering is his kid gloves handling of character death. I'm totally with him not tpking the group but half the fun of the game is dying spectacularly (or pitifully). Other than that he's the best in the biz

Jesus. No it isn't. You keep hammering on this but it's not funny or interesting in the slightest, in fact I would say it's one of the vestigial wargame things that keep RPGs in the gutter. Give it a rest.

Honestly, at this point, the audience is so attached to the main characters that killing them would be a detriment. Besides, Griffin is more concerned with telling a story than providing an EPIK CHALLENGE. Besides, it's not the loving 80s anymore.

Believe it or not, there are different aspects to RPGs that different people enjoy.

Edit: Think of it like this. Imagine that the cockroach killed Magnus. The party is currently behind an airlock within a castle made of crystal. The way the podcast structures its stories, there's no logical point to add a replacement character until the chapter is over and they're in an interlude. This could take months. That's MONTHS of Travis doing buttfuck NOTHING.

Real fun.

I can see that, but I don't think the idea holds up when you're broadcasting your game to other people. If you're just messing around with your friends you can just whip up 5 characters ahead of time and do a crazy meat grinder adventure, sounds like a fun afternoon. Here though they want people to be invested in the characters. It would be hard for people to keep up otherwise. I mean, the people playing can barely keep up with what their characters can do!

The only time I can forsee a PC dying without their player organizing a big event with the DM beforehand is if they do something monumentally stupid, like intentionally putting on a Grand Relic. Then again, there is always resurrection. Basically, it's going to be a capital bee Big capital jee Deal.

I can imagine Griffin working in somebody dying but hanging around in Ghost Form or something, then having the Void Fish puke up a clone of the character next time they go to the moon.
