How we face death is at least as important as how we face life.

Captain James T. Kirk

With those words in mind, I was wondering if there any strange or interesting ways your characters have faced death.

In a recent Traveller session we found ourselves trapped on a starship on a collision course with a sun. Headed for certain death we were scrambling to find a way to change course. All attempts failed miserably. We were headed for certain doom, and with all hope gone I said to myself, "Self, how would old Sully face death." Sully, my PC had a 7 Soc standing and was a former belter and marine and was currently acting as a mercenary.

I decided the best way to face death was to get drunk on good Scotch while watching cartoons. This amused the GM so much I got 200 XP.

Just wondering what you would do in this situation?


PS the autopilot kicked in at the last minute and saved our asses.

When I die I'm going to donate my body to Science Fiction
