A Title Much Cooler Than Anything on the Old Site
Emphasis mine. And here's the rub. The player in question was already talking down the DM and other players, even AFTER they retconned the encounter, slinging bad-wrong-fun all over his fellow players. I don't think he would have taken it well if they just ganked his character.I'm a very big proponent of solving character problems/conflicts in character, as long as the players are together/mature enough to keep it in character.
