    Edition-independant, you call for a check anytime there's a chance of failure AND that failure can actually lead to something interesting. Falling off a knotted rope can alert a nearby guard during your caper, failing to recall the name of the neighbouring country might tip someone off that you're an outsider, etc. They're something you SHOULD be able to do easily, so the DC is low, but there is a check regardless.

    I'm not even gonna address the "uhh but a competent DM tho!" slight.

    "Edition-independent"? Are you quite sure about that? Because the three original booklets don't even have rules for checks, for instance, much less rules for when to call for checks.

    I mean, that's the least of the things regarding your premise with which I disagree, but it was worth pointing out.

    Except falling off a rope in a time sensitive situation isn't "you didn't wake up with a functional brain this morning".

    And what's wrong with pointing out that bad/inexperienced DMs may run the rules improperly? Because you haven't really given an example that doesn't require the DM making players make asinine checks.

    Diablo: Descent: A Path Chosen



    The Butcher buries its cleaver into the chest of the Vizjerei Sorcerer,
    separating the mage from this mortal coil in one brutal stroke.
    The bloodshed only stokes the fiend's thirst for terror,
    as it drinks in the horrified expressions of the Sorcerer's companions.

    It is too late now. Their fate was sealed the moment they opened the door to its chamber.
    There will be nobody coming to aid them. They will simply become the next grisly reminder of The Butcher's cruelty.

    But.
    There was one thing they didn't count on.





    The waypoint activates, the arcane glyphs inscribed around its stone base long ago glowing with magic...
    A burst of light that blinds everyone explodes out from it, as the silhouette of a figure can be seen in that brilliant flash.
    When that light fades, you see...

    Spoiler:



    The decision is made! It was extremely close. For everyone that made a stab at it, it was appreciated.
    Regardless of how many sheets I received, I analyzed each one carefully and weighed the result.
    If you didn't get in this time, look forward to the next time a slot opens up and try again!
    Congratulations to the winner. I hope you are ready for the perils that await...
    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    Congratulations to the winner! Live long and prosper. Or die quickly so we can get another stab in, that would work out too.

    At least I didn't pull out all the stops this time.

    Congrats KT!

    I shall wait for the next opportunity to join. I really do want to try out the Paladin I made.

    This.

    But don't forget; they have to die five times.

    To that end, mAc, any chance we could get a heads up about how many people died, and how many times?

    From level 1 to 5, I had a total net loss of only 4 HPs, so... Don't expect much on that front, is what I'm saying. :-P

    This.

    But don't forget; they have to die five times.

    To that end, mAc, any chance we could get a heads up about how many people died, and how many times?
    To explain how this works...

    Diablo 1 (the video game) is a game where it's quite easy to get randomly dogpiled by a swarm of monsters and killed out of nowhere, or to be struck down by massive damage from a single enemy. There's a fear to it. I wanted to preserve this sense of danger and horror but without making it so you have to churn through characters once every ten minutes. Everyone put effort into their characters, so I want there to be some sense of investment.

    At the same time, Diablo is a story filled with heroes fighting evil that often ends with the heroes becoming twisted by their experiences.

    As a result, there is a mechanic called Corruption, which is sort of like Humanity from Dark Souls. When you die, you get a rank of Corruption and then can continue on, but with some madness, trauma, or evil tainting your heart. The more corruption you get, the more twisted you become, until finally your character no longer able to be the hero that they once were. (You can get corruption from non-lethal sources as well, and there are ways to die that just kill you outright instead of giving you corruption.)

    So rather than just death, it represents a negative character arc, a downfall. At that point, the character becomes an NPC.

    To bring it back to TM, you could say that Dark Sakura has her corruption maxed out.
    He never sleeps. He never dies.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    Really, it's more like Taint, if you're familiar with the 3e mechanic. Especially the Heroes of Horror version.

    I really have trouble seeing the DS in it.

    Basically, you die. You might spontaneously rez, but you come back less than you were before; less sane, less human.

    In DS, you die and lose your human form, but you can reclaim it. Humanity itself is arguably dangerous; it can straight up attack you in the right conditions and is implied to do horrible things to the Firekeepers. You ho nuts in DS and Hollow because you literally can't die...
