After two years of play I thought I try to give you a little bit of amusement for the coming Festive Season. As well as completing most (but not all ) of the things I intended for the year - as set out in last years post and in the spirit of sharing and possibly allowing others to learn from my misfortunes I thought I'd check my logs for the various ways my personae have died DEAD this year (so far). Here are the ones I could find. Edited for readability. (like I removed the room descriptions cos I think you all know them well enough).
