Save or die on a character creation? Are you playing Traveler? Kevin could just pretend he didn't see it. When one roll can ruin a carefully laid campaign plan, sometimes it's better to not roll.

He already made the character, this is giving him a re spec into the Template. Save or Die on a full re spec is pretty generous as far as official sources go.

Given that the entire campaign hinges on it, you'd think the work around would be "GM's discretion". Then again, I never was the Game Master (Dungeon Master) for D&D, nor did I read any Dungeon Master-specific rule books. Plus, the games I have played tend to avoid "Save or Die" rolls, barring actual Death Checks that occur due to things like accumulated injury or the player being stupid. ;)

Now, blurting out that you've missed something instead of keeping calm, quiet, and finding a solution is totally how I was a Game Master. Unfortunately. :P

Technically he only made the backstroy, I don't think he ever made the character mechanically (except maybe pre-emptively adding the asthma flaw). This feels more like Session zero, building the character as you talk.

I'm interested to see the way he works around this.

"Ok so you failed, so instead of you dying" *rolls percentile* "Professor Erskine dies!"
"Wait how?"
"Ah no further explanation needed."
