I like the fact that Death feels the need to air-quote idioms, or say things like "as you would say"... Puts him above the quirks of the language, making him seem smarter than everyone else.

Presumably he is actually smarter than everyone else, but the bar is set so low in that case by the rest of the characters.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
