comment Are risks of non-combat death exciting or just frustrating and discouraging?
@HeyICanChan Ah, that makes more sense - thanks! That kind of playstyle is why I mentioned the Necromancer scenario, where the pit doesn't change, but the countdown to the villain completing their scheme also doesn't stop while the PCs deal with the failure.

Added a mention of sudden-death dungeon styles. Also, grammar.

@GMJoe I'm curious what you'd define as "pure sandbox"; I've played in what I consider "pure sandbox" games a couple times under the DM from whom I learned this.

comment Should I warn my players when they're about to do something stupid?
+1 for "You've forgotten this or that, but I know your character wouldn't have. So I'll tell you." I said almost exactly that to a player in my game yesterday when he made an honest mistake due to it having been a month since we last played.
