It was noticed and brought up years ago:I think Neretze's Folly related NPC deaths should be delayed during the campaign until day ~100 or so. So you can talk to them before this happens -
This is Lucon rando dying before the end of day 2 of my campaign.
Somewhat silly this is an issue because there are protections available for certain plot critical NPCs and/or there could also be protection just by changing Lucon's age and doing a modest re-write of his biography and personal narrative.
We're gonna need to have a talk about that death to old age curve.
