How to handle a TPK in Dungeons & Dragons
Players can handle TPK from happening by having a friendly NPC or non-player character. If a player is on higher levels, they could just find the dead party and can bring them back to life by carrying their bodies to a cleric or mage. However, if a player has just started the game or is at a beginner’s level, it is better to start the campaign again. Sometimes it is better to let go of a character, even if you love it.
