It always seems to happen to me. My character’s fate is sealed, and in a last-ditch effort they choose to sacrifice themselves to buy their comrades some time… and no one. Lets them. They always try to revive or heal them so they can flee together. I appreciate the effort, but seriously.
i had this moment a while back during some World of Warcraft Role Play. The basic scenario was that one guild was being attacked by another, so i decided to help out. We were like 2-3 against like 6 or more, and a lot of them were y’know warriors and shit like that. So during the course of the battle my character got stabbed in the back (seriously, dick move stabbing in back guy) and as an act of y’know self-sacrifice my char decided to take the lot of them with him. So he told the others to flee while he pulled out a primed grenade. Grenade of course blew up and took … a good chunk of the opposers with him as he fell down dead. What they DECIDED to do instead of just running is take my character’s dead body away with them and then revive him. With holy magic. And my character is Fel Born so of course, Holy magic burns him. So what could’ve been an epic moment turned in the end into a seizure with my character clutching his chest and tryin’ y’know NOT TO DIE FROM HOLY MAGIC. I mean i can appreciate the sentiment, but c’mon.
