Steve used to write a column about... well, something. These were remanants that never quite went anywhere.
This was originally supposed to appear in Comics Waiting Room, but seeing as I missed deadline due to sickness and shenanigans, TPK #4 ended up here. I have to admit, editing was a tad bit easier! - Steve
“Total Party Kill (TPK) is the colloquial term for when, in a single encounter during the course of a role-playing game adventure, the entire party of player characters is killed.” – The Codex Wikipedia
Greetings, citizens! Are you ready to serve your Friend Computer well?
Well done, perhaps?
Regardless of how you feel, it’s time to get your clearances in order for yet another adventure full of madness and hyperbole. Friend Computer prefers to designate it TOTAL PARTY KILL.
You do have the proper clearance, don’t you?
It would appear that this Computer’s blinking hand-light has grown a bit redder this past week*, as it is now a 33 year-old model. Of course, because of necessary pan-dimensional celebrations, TPK kind of had to be “thrown together” due to some time constraints.
(*Cease that filthy mind-think!)
Some may call this approach “lazy”. I prefer the term “indolent”, truth be told.
Oh, who am I kidding? I normally “throw” this together. It’s what makes it so much fun! I have all sorts of crap to throw at you, in fact. 3:16 Carnage Amongst the Stars, Houses of the Blooded, Conquer the Horizon, Talisman, a vast array of comics (including Red Sonja, Pistolfist: Revolutionary Warrior, Judge Dredd Megazine, Army of Darkness, Knights of the Dinner Table, Dragon Prince and more!), miniatures, and even some videogame action. So let’s throw ourselves right in!
