|Kelly Youngblood Venture-Captain, Texas—Houston aka Arutema|
Let's see, my deaths:
Monk pincushioned by a high-op archer when said archer failed a confusion save. Said archer paid for the res. (Gravity bow crits hurt, never mind the rest of the full attack.)
2 different characters, paladin and ranger killed in 2 different scenarios by Babau sneak attack longspear crits.
Playtest swashbuckler killed by trying to stand up while threatened by a certain NPC magus and dispatched with a rapier crit. (Playtest version didn't have the kip up deed.)
Low-HP bloodrager got crit by a ranger boss with me as its favored enemy.
In fact, the only one that didn't involve critical hits was my Str-dumped summoner who went up a gainst a shadow at level 1.
But I have no ill will against the critical hit mechanics, especially because of how satisfying it can be to confirm on a tetsubo or firearm crit in a dire situation.
