The poll assumes dice aren't killing characters because TRUTH that's what they do. We can run a one-shot right NOW and I'd sit back and watch that d20 peel the skin off your PC and you'd be asking me 'can I roll to avoid my roll?' UH. 'Roll to avoid your own roll'. Players think they are SO SPECIAL AND SMART until the dice ............... I KNOW what they do. In the game I'm designing in the GM advice I EXPRESSEDLY tell GMs to warn players about relying on dice rolls. It's self-mutilation disguised as fun people.
