<t>I can see why they made D&D4 a lot less lethal to the PCs. After spending what amounts to an entire game sessions worth of time creating a character you darn sure don't want to die falling down a pit trap. <br/> They're still gonna. But I can see why they would get so upset with my DMing now....

<t>I play GURPS, also. GURPS is a neat system for several reasons but cannot replicate dungeon crawling with any great success.

Old Sci-Fi T.V.

I've always had a paladin player in my group. We rarely run into NPC paladins, but there is always one in the group. I like how their XP table slows their growth compared to a Fighter's.
