Oh sure, you can definitely do it. It does steer pretty hard away from the zeitgeist though, which is why I described it as "tricky".Not really, it just becomes a plot based game about the party's plot or the world's plot rather than any individual PC's plot. Look at Glenn & Eugene from The Walking Dead or nearly everyone in Game of Thrones. Both were shows that had pretty extensive plots & building stories but they still had pretty seriuous death tolls of main characters.
