Nope, this isn't my problem. Optimized characters in and of itself is not the evil. I can handle those. And I'm pretty sure that the reason for all the rules/optimization discussions we are having is not because they're scared that their PCs might die. Re-read my question from "Regarding what brand of munchkins my..." and you'll see what my problem is.

So many good answers here, I'll be picking advice from many of them. This answer, however, was the one which I feel helps me the most with my problem. Also, thanks for the confidence in that 5e might not be such a bad system to make this work in.

Interesting. Would you use Fiasco, for playing sort of "pre-sessions" to figure out where your later campaign will be heading? Or as a pure on-off to give people a break?

+1 for describing how I have feel regarding bonfires and new feats in the Ultimate Whatnot expansion book :)

This is like the eggtimer buffed up with Super Heroism :). And it's probably very effective for shortcutting the long combats. Will use this.

+1 for taking the time to answer. Softball might be a solution to some groups, but not to the one in question. They're very happy for that "phew, that was a close call" experience. And dismayed when things go too easy.
