This was my first TPK as GM, and much to my relief the players all seemed like they were still having fun.
Names: Hermia, Trynk, Sellen, and Barek
Race/Class: Android gunslinger, Gnome wizard (metal elementalist), Human cleric (Brigh), Human savage technologist (barbarian)
Adventure: Lords of Rust
Location: Hellion's Redoubt
Cause of Death: Hellion
This party did quite well all the way up to meeting Hellion's aggregate robot chassis. A few tactical missteps and unlucky rolls later, Hellion ordered his scrapyard robots to stand idle and watch while he finished destroying the brave, grappled, and confused adventurers with his claws and plasma beam.
Hellion hung their bodies on display in the arena, and the players opted to start new characters instead of a daring NPC mission to steal their bodies and get them raised. We’re starting book 3, The Choking Tower, with a new party in Iadenveigh as the town council convenes an open meeting to discuss some mysterious and troubling recent events.
