Keeping Score

Some gamemasters are really proud of their TPKs. At GenCon one year, I heard a Pathfinder Society GM stand up and excitedly declare to the entire ballroom “TPK!” I don’t think I’d be excited. I’d probably feel guilty. I’d watch the last PC drop and the last player mark their character as dead and feel shame. Then I would go home, sit in a dark corner, and silently drink myself into oblivious while listening to The Cure.
