Caught By Surprise

I ran a short session of White Box Swords & Wizardry the other night and was caught by surprise.

The oldest and best serving hireling, the map maker was killed during an attack that seemed to be out of the blue. Now the party is wondering how to approach his family about it because they feel terrible. Three or four sessions ago after a bad wilderness encounter the party made their way back to the map maker's house to recover. Once there, while the PCs were strategizing a new approach to the ruins on the hill the map maker himself was out working his connections to plug the gaps in the party's skill set. Now he's gone.

I'm caught by surprise because "the game" is even better than I had remembered it.
