Detentions and Dragons

Oct 1, 2018

The Total Party Kill (aka TPK) is a term used to describe a scenario in which all player characters are defeated. However, it is the decision of the DM to decide if the TPK is a tearful epilogue to a campaign or a plot device to drive the narrative forward. Also, it is a downer when your students lose!!! On this lesson, Josh and Matt discuss their philosophy behind the TPK and three ways to redefine the TPK for your club or home campaign.

Did these teacher provide you with some insight into handling the unlucky rolls or the silly shenanigans of the PCs in your own campaign?
