Seems like it'd be helpful to regroup the data in some ways. I was going to make an attempt, but the Vox article tells us that "stabbed" includes both self-inflicted and otherwise... so re-categorizing would be hard. But something like self-inflicted vs. other, deliberate vs. accidental, nature vs. man seems like it'd be more helpful where the detailed reasons are highly varied, and might (I stress might) lend some insight as to the Bard's favored methods of doing away with a character.

Either way, anything that gets rid of a pie chart is good.

Adam: yes, the categorization can be improved, both by expanding some categories or aggregating others.
