Dying during character creation in Traveller

Faoladh at the Ongoing Campaign has posted about the notoriousness of the older versions of Traveller, in which you could die during the long┬ácharacter process. A hallmark of the original rules, it was lessened in the later versions until it became an optional rule in the Mongoose version of the game [AL]. Faoladh takes an in-depth look at how it works, why it is┬áthere, and what the repercussions of it are, giving quite an in-depth analysis of a stand-out element of a game that is so old-school it’s never graduated.
