400 strips!

This gag comes courtesy of some... I'll call them, "inspiring," people online whose pearl of wisdom to get players involved was turning every session into a damn hostage situation. Yeah that will work well.

Anyway, 400 strips, go me!

@Dogbert: It reminds me of the old "women in refrigerators" trope in comics and other fiction. The supporting character who serves no purpose in the narrative but to die and send the hero on a mission of vengeance. Some GMs use NPCs and lazy ways to spur adventures, but I think a lot of them honestly have no idea of what else to do with NPCs. It's easier when the PCs are murderhobos wandering from town to town, and never see NPCs more than once.

@Brian: Ikr? But then GMs will do well with being coherent. If you don't care for PC-NPC interaction, then openly discourage it.
