    My very first DnD game I was in the process of rolling up a human fighter when I was asked to roll vs poisons. Confused I was given a die and told to roll it. I rolled and thought it was extremely good but no- I died before being completely made and then (a ghoul had attacked me) my would-be teammates killed me again before I even understood what had happened.


    That was over 20 years ago.

    In Traveller you can choose backgrounds for you character. Some of these are by nature dangerous. Having a long military career in character generation can give you an older, but very very capable, character. The downside being that injuries and death are options when going through the career. So you can die in character generation. And this one time, the whole party died before they even made it to the game.

    My sarcasm detector is fusion powered. Yeah, that's powerful enough.

    You are what you do.

    I, too, was a victim of Traveller's character generation system once- a long military career ended the hard way.

    The D&D story, though, is unique.

    Wait... how is that possible to even die during character creation?!?!?

    That's for Mega. I mean hell, what kind of campaign was it where there is a pre character creation encounter anyway? If you ae going to do that then why not roll a save vs death to see if your chatacter was aborted as a fetus.

    Our gang used to die regularly while generating Traveller characters. We always thought it was odd but had asked others who played and found it was not unusual.

    If I remember correctly, it was Ravenlofts Goblin Crown. I finally gave in to check out DnD (you know that satan thing) and they asked me many questions as I sat at the table. They were putting together my character even as the game had resumed from the prior week.


    I was hooked
