Well...

It's not necessarily a personal deathwith as in "I want to die!"
It's more of a general deathwith as in "Sombody is gonna die!"


Unless a GM is pretty unimaginative, you can't completely avoid melee combat. In a game where you can attack everyone from a range every time, you're right, melee combat would be a bad idea. Unfortunately, it's generally a necessary evil and parties should be able to handle melee combat (including front-line melee characters).

You realize this is one of those parody threads, right?


Being serious in parody threads is fun though.

If we are treating this topic seriously Animated objects are hard on low level characters without a front line melee combatant.

Silly Fighter, battle is won in the mind not the arm.

Which is why AM BARBARIAN always fights with his mind. Since he connected it to the haft with that chain it even gets +2 to disarm!
