I have been running an ongoing campaign since 2003 with various groups of players popping in and out. We like to keep continuity and I try and include Metaplot and cannon characters on occasion, but it's only now that the group have got towards elder level that they are really dealing with well known characters. When/if a NPC dies in cannon they tend to die in my game, so they heard about Moncada meeting his end recently etc (Game is set in the early 2000s but still using and based on V20) the only cannon NPC that they have killed is actually Bindusara. He met his end in during a strange Lovecraftian...
