It starts with a short old school style text adventure section. It describes the situation and you are presented with few choices what to do. The whole section is maybe three choices. You choose ”badly” and you die. Then you start from the beginning again. I think there is exactly one combination of choices that ends in death. I managed to pick those...

After you successfully get through the text part the game turns on the graphic interface and you start character creation / tutorial

Isn't there a TTRPG that allows for a chance of death during character creation? I kept trying to think of it at work last night.

I remember hearing of such a game. The character creation had a system where every feature you picked increased your character’s age or something like that, I think. So if you went overkill, you killed yourself of old age. Not sure, never played it myself, just remember hearing about it.

Traveller. I had that happen with one of my first characters I ever created for that game. Each time you choose options to increase the depth and breadth of your PC’s background, there are possible positive or negative ancillary possibilities. Death is one possible outcome if your profession is dangerous.

So, for example, if you are a space marine or criminal of some kind, if you take Too many chances boosting your background, there‘s a real chance your PC might not make it.

I had a morbid conversation with my mom the other day. She said she plans to go ahead and pay for her cremation and planned to pay for mine as well. 😳

I said I was ok with cremation. I had the idea of having my ashes turned into dice. The thought was it would be something for someone to remember me by in the form of something that talked about who I am. Would you want a d20 with someone's ashes in it?

Nope. I do have/had* friends though, who consistently rolled so badly that they joked about being cursed. so haunted dice would be right up their alley.

* one of them died last year. :(

I noticed today the anchor strap I use for my resistance bands is damaging the door. I can see where the metal is bending. I'm going to have to back off those exercises, change spots where anchoring, and/or do less frequently.

I don't understand people. I was told about another coworker getting beaten. This was bad. Wrecked her car, broke a window, and beat her pretty bad. It seems this is not the first time. Why do people keep going back to abusive partners?

The one I mentioned the other day is back with her boyfriend.

It makes no sense.

I got an update. She's in the hospital and he's in jail. I hope he stays there.

I understand that. She's a good looking young lady. I don't know her that well. I think she shouldn't have trouble finding someone better.

Two of my aunts were in abusive marriages. In each case, it took them years to get out. YEARS. And these women are NOT what anyone would call weak.

And yet, these guys just sucked the life out of them like vampires.

I think that's a common theme. The abuser doesn't just break the body, they break the will. It will drain the life from anyone.

I had someone say he's had women make him mad enough to hit them but he didn't. Maybe it's because I've never been in a real relationship I never felt that way. I'd like to say I wouldn't hit her but I haven't been in the situation. I believe I have the strength to not do it. I've seen the aftermath too often.

I don't know why I'm up so late. I can't sleep. I got a lot on my mind. I got another issue taking up too much space in my head.

I'm trying to get a Ramp for the house so that I can at least go outside. Ramps cost too to buy and I "make" too much to get aid to buy one.

Think I'll just drop down the stairs and enjoy outside from the ground and have the EMTs pick me up daily.

My dad had a ramp built when his condition got so bad that he couldn’t climb the three steps to get inside. He was lucky in that a close relative is a carpenter who built it for just the material cost. But yeah, I think you should go for. Being able to go outside did good for dad’s mind at that point.
