We had another session of D&D today. While it was fun, we experienced what my n00b self wants to call a Total Party Wipeout. Basically, we all died. The video gamer in me was getting a little frustrated, because I was taken out first and I had to watch while everyone kept going after the big boss type creature and the little minions kept taking pot-shots. I know this probably doesn't translate exactly, but in video games, you need to take the little guys out first, or else they'll kill you while you're trying to kill the big guy.
I know this isn't one of those rules that works 100% of the time, but D&D is pretty much like Final Fantasy, and I have played a lot of Final Fantasy in my day, and that's pretty much how it works.
So, we didn't actually die, but I think in two weeks when we pick up the game again, we're going to wake up in a dungeon or something, which would be appropriate, given the name of the game. We'll see!
Just looked it up on Wikipedia. The "technical" term is "Total Party Kill"
