Krondar the Mighty is dying, and this time it looks like it's going to stick. Heroic Measures is a freeform scenario about medical decision-making at the end of life for fantasy heroes, based on the actual principles and practice of palliative care. An adventuring party must come together to share memories and help choose the magical care that will best help their companion die with dignity. This scenario lets participants explore the very real challenges of judgment and consensus around the care of someone unable to voice their own choices, couched in the familiar tropes of fantasy adventure, and maybe think more about their own wishes, worries, and plans for their loved ones and themselves.

Heroic Measures received a Golden Cobra award in 2018 in the category "Best game that teaches a skill."
