Saves are saves

A comment I spotted from one "Anonymous", over at Jeff's Gameblog, that seemed worth highlighting here:
One note on the lethalness of saving throws... if you are making a save roll, you are basically already screwed/dead, and are being allowed one last desperate chance to survive. Don't think of it as an unfair "check" you have to make, think of it as a bonus chance to avoid something terrible that you got into by your own previous actions and decisions. It's the game's way of being forgiving once you already made a big mistake. :)
