"Yes, denied the use of his magic spells, four times out of five first-level Gandalf would be shredded and left in a bloody pulp on the floor by Mr. Whiskers."

In the original Rolemaster rules, a sloth that got a great attack roll and a great critical role could stab through an eye kill you dead. No matter what armor you had. No matter what level you were. FEAR combat! (Or better yet, have the GM put a max limit on crits.)

I don't know what those rule makers were thinking. Sure, you can roll up a new character and even give them enough levels to catch up with the rest of the party pretty fast. But then you don't get the fun of watching your character grow up. Plus you either have to stop the whole game while the guy/gal who's character died goes through the rebirth process or leave the guy/gal out for the rest of the night.
The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common: instead of altering their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views….
