D&D 40th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 6

Day 6: First character death. How did you handle it?

As morbid as it may sound, I usually find myself a little relieved when my characters die. Part of the reason I like being the DM so much is that I'm never restricted to a single character, and when I do find myself on the players' side, I suffer from character ADHD. I might really like this character concept, but as soon as something new and cool catches my eye, I really want to give it a shot. Even though a lot of people complain about splat books giving too many options, I find that I can never get enough. Gamers like me are the reason splat books are a thing... we consume every crunchy bit that Wizards of the Coast throws us, and we still wish we had more. In fact, I got bored with 4th Edition early on because we started playing it the day it was released and there weren't enough splat books for me! I am always on the lookout to try a new character, and losing an old one is a great opportunity to explore something new.
