Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment What to do when I accidentally kill the whole party?
@JasonSmith I've rolled back that edit. Substantial additions like that to an answer usually should be worked out with the author, because when added to the post it looks like their words. The addition doesn't match the tone or structure of this answer. (If Jessa wants to add it, they will see these comments in their inbox and can integrate it using their own style.)
