Poll: Time for another roll-off, methinks

Should I do one of those roll-off things to decide whether people die?

I assume you guys remember the Player Death System, by which we would roll dice and through a complicated numerical system decide if anyone should die if placed in a dangerous situation?
If not, you can remind yourself of it here.
Anyways, I thought it was about time we had one again, and I was intending what's about to happen to be extremely dangerous and by no means easy. Thus, I propose a mass roll (which I'll do, so no worries about the workload for you guys :p) in which I'll roll for every single person currently in the convoy. This ought, statistically, to result in at least one death, though hopefully not too many.
So, that's the deal. Vote up, and go ahead and up your post count by telling us what you said :thumbsupsmiley:
Of course I don't look busy; I did it right the first time.

Please! Spare me, I'm only little :p Although, having just thought back to what you said about it before, don't I get a grace period because I'm new? If that's the case then consider this a vote for yes instead.
I hope I am a good enough writer that some day dwarves kill me and drink my blood for wisdom.

Yep, the grandoise entrance I plan to have has around a 50/50 mortality rate, so something could happen. I'm in.

OLD SIG
When history witnesses a great change Razgriz reveals itself,
first as a dark demon. As a demon it uses it power to rain death upon the land,
and then it dies. However after a period of slumber Razgriz returns
As the demon sleeps, man turns on man.
Its own blood, and madness soon cover the earth.
From the depths of despair awaken the Razgriz.
Its raven wings ablaze in majestic light.
Amidst the eternal waves of time
From a ripple of change shall the storm rise
Out of the abyss peer the eyes of a demon
Behold the Razgriz, its wings of black sheath
The demon soars through the dark skies
Fear and Death trail its shadow beneath
Until Men united wield a hallowed sabre
In Final Reckoning, the beast is slain.

Yeah, that's what I thought. I'll go do that :p

@ Vort...huh. Good point...oh, OK then. I'll sit you out. But just this once.

@ Nology, well if that's the case - how about I remove your survival bonus to represent the ridiculous danger you'd be in? (which I may regret 'cos I would be very sad if Titus died D: Still, dem's da roolz.)

As the once-great Duke Nukem once said, the same has been said of Titus: "I have BALLS of STEEL." :p

I don't think we'll be doing it yet, at any rate. Wait until later on, when the group has expanded somewhat, and I seem to recall FZM saying he might look into reopening the possibility. But for the moment, we're all invincible! :shiftee:

IIRC we implemented this towards the end of the old Apoc because people were getting just too... uber.

As in, I'm driving a truck and I go off the side of the mountain. The truck flips a billion times, bursts into flames, explodes, falls a thousand feet straight down and lands smack dab in the middle of a horde of three billion infected. I then proceed to escape from the truck unscathed and kill all three billion infected. With my one shotgun. Which only has seven shots left in it.

We wanted to bring a bit of reality to it, in what was kinda a last-ditch effort to keep it afloat. I wouldn't mind seeing it back in a lil bit, however.

If you meet me:

Have some courtesy,

Have some sympathy,

And some taste.

Use all your well-learned politesse,

Or I'll lay your soul to waste.
