One of my favorites that I've yet to complete...

Can't give much advice about avoiding attacks, but remember that backstabs do more damage, Crash inflicts a status effect that makes the enemy take more damage, and those two stack. A good way to do a lot of damage to one enemy is to Jaunt behind them, use one Crash, then a bunch of Lances. Lance already does a lot of damage, and it'll do even more with the bonus for backstabbing and crashed.

Yeah, I think I would remove javelin (I think that's the +distance thing I've got) from crash if the game allowed me to change things up. A lot of the mechanics seem to push you towards experimenting with different set-ups, then they don't let you do that thing when you actually want to.

Minecrafting, got buried under gravel like an idiot, friend saw it happen, I'm digging out while losing hp to suffocating.  Friend also digging.  Immediately after my moment of victory when my head escapes the gravelly prison my friend smacks me in the face with a shovel.

Okay, maybe it wasn't me, but it was one of my Rimworld pawns. I revived him shortly after too.

Despite playing on and off for a few years now, Death Metal is still a huge risk for death by misstep.  I just cant get into his rythme.

Thatís certainly an... interesting feature.

I think I can recall some post-apocalyptic tabletop RPG that also had pre-character (and even mid-character) creation-related death.

I also recall that that tRPG wasnít very good...

FallacyofUrist was going to run a game of it this summer. He didn't. I'm bitter, because my character survived creation.

Wait, so... what actually happens in terms of gameplay when that happens in these two? Go back, reroll? Alternate branch of the family?

No idea about KC:D, but deadEarth you just reroll.

...unless that's the last of your (2? 3?) character options you're supposed to be presented with, in which case you just don't play. Because you're unworthy.

In kingdom come it's more of a joke then anything since you end up playing the same dude regardless. You just press a button and it either goes away or you die in a new way, you can easily just skip it. Character creation is probably not the right word, since in hardcore you just pick two debuffs and go on as usual. No real stat assigning involved, the closest you get is a dialogue option at the beginning which raises one stat.

So I'm bored (long bus ride...) and did most of character creation on my phone and think I'm actually doing pretty well-- I'm 21 years old, almost 7 feet tall, weigh 14(!) pounds, age at double speed, have nigh infinite quantities of blood, no carrying capacity, no movement, the minimum starting money, and pockmarks/pustules all over my body.

Okay, but I'm not dead.

Crushed by rapidly rising floor against a ceiling, along with a bunch of abnormally pettable cats. Damn you, "unknown spell"!
