7th death of the campaign...

Name: Estene Moonmeadow (grey elf warlock 9, cohort)
Adventure: A Gathering of Winds
Location: The Falling River
Catalyst: 1 lone cohort scout vs. 6 wind warriors with good initiative

Description: All it took was one round. Since she could fly at will, Estene was sent down the Falling River to scout ahead under the protection of invisibility. However, since she lacked darkvision, the light spell cast on her drew the attention of 6 wind warriors, with great speeds and initiative. Her DR 7/cold iron and invisibility failed to protect her from the wind warriors' sonic blasts and the falling damage she took from falling down the river finished her off, at least until she gets raised.


We lost our Rogue/Shadow Dancer in the battle with Dragotha.

It was interesting, our fighter and our cleric hidden with a magical shirt from MIC, can't remember what it was called. It mimiced hide from undead. Any way, it was the rogue and wizard that appeared before Dragotha, the wizard carrying Bucknard's purse and the rogue with the fury in his rapier.

We had a nice conversation with Dragotha before the rogue won initiative and charged with a miss. That same round our cleric and fighter got into better positions while the wizard cast his offensive spells. well the second round we did little damage to Dragotha. Dragotha then tried to use Force Cage on our fighter, but the wizard's ring of spellbattle, I think it was, allowed him to turn it back on Dragotha.

When it came back to the rogue he used his ring of major spell storing to cast a silence spell, on himself. He the used shadow jump to get in the middle of Dragotha's space thus rendering him usless, but he did rip the rogue in two. To make things worse, by the time our wizard got to go shortly after he finished the battle with an empowered Magic Missile. Yes the oldest dracolich dies by a magic missle.

PC Name: Taravin Truesilver (male human Gray Guard 10/Paladin of Honor [Stand Fast variant] 5/Pious Templar 4)
Adventure: Into the Wormcrawl Fissure
Location of Death: Part IV: Thessalar's Fortress
Catalyst: Full-attack from augmented thessalhydra.
Long Description: Taravin was standing very close when the augmented thessalhydra formed from Thessalar's vat of gunk. The angry creature took all of its attacks upon Taravin, who could not withstand the onslaught. He returned to life shortly when his cloak of the phoenix activated.


PC Name: Workgroup D, a.k.a "Purity" (Fighter / Barbarian / Warforged Juggernaut)
Adventure: The Champion's Belt
Location of Death: The Arena, Day Four of the Champions' Games
Catalyst: Heedless Charge against Madtooth the Hungry

Full Description: Having wasted many of their buff spells earlier in the day when they were originally slated to fight Madtooth, the members of Hammer Time chose to conserve their resources until they knoew the fight would go on, casting only a single round of buffs as Madtooth's cage was opened. Purity charged in recklessly, leaving himself completely open as he swung at the enormous creature. In pain, Madtooth turned its full attention against the warforged, battering him with all four of its tentacles and ensnaring him with its tongue. His teammates stayed at range, hoping to damage the beast enough to free Purity without exposing themselves to certain death.

It wasn't enough. The tongue retracted, and Purity disappeared down the enormous gullet. His teammates saw a spikey shoulder puncture through the beast's stomach shortly afterwards, but the gap was not large enough to extract himself, and the warforged's struggling quickly subsided.

[Purity's player wants me to note that he attributes his death to metagaming, thinking that if the party was going to be expected to expend resources exploring the recently discovered under-arena that evening, they must not actually need them for this fight. Therefore he abstained from the Iron Construct infusion that would otherwise have been cast on him, giving him DR15 / Adamantine. Alas! But really, half the party is blaming themselves for this death. Everyone had something they might have done. So long, Purity. We look forward to seeing what you reincarnate as.]


PC Name: Nala (female elf fighter 5)
Adventure: Encounter at Blackwall Keep
Location of Death: The Twisted Branch Lair
Catalyst: Spawnlings are poisonous!
Long Description: The party had decided to help move the lizardfolk's eggs, as no one wanted anything to do with the black dragon's egg. So, half of the party was not even in the room when the egg started to 'hatch.' A panic ensued, and when all was said and done, a dozen twisted angry spawnlings hatched and attacked the three people left in the room. Nala suffered several bites, as did the 2 others, and all decided it was time to run. The spawnlings followed them out the tunnel. The 3 victims burst from the water running for their lives, which surprised the party cleric waiting on the other end almost as much as the vicious mob which burst from the water to attack him. After killing a few of them, the cleric turned what were left, and the party fled the lair. Unfortunately, Nala succumbed to the venom of the spawnlings bites.

Of course, they now have a problem, as the spawnling managed to reanimate the king and a few other dead lizardfolk as a spawns, and soon, the Mistmarsh may become a nightmarish place of worms.

Hail Kyuss!


PC Name: Vanthis(male dragonborn of bahamut paladin 6)
Adventure: The Hall of Harsh Reflections
Location of Death: On the road to Greyhawk City
Catalyst: Bad luck on dice rolls
Long Description:
Ever have a few dice rolls you wish you could have back?
On the 2nd night out from Diamond Lake, the Ixit, the party druid, and Vanthis were on watch when they noticed the horses growing restless. They went over to check them out, and perhaps try to calm them. What they failed to notice was a half dozen owlbears approaching.
Ouch.
The party put up a valiant fight, but in the end, all of the horses were slain.

Oh, and Vanthis died too.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

PC Name: Vanthis(male dragonborn of bahamut paladin 6)
Adventure: The Hall of Harsh Reflections
Location of Death: Telakin's Hall, Sodden Hold
Catalyst: Attack Nearest Creature
Long Description:
Before I start in on the death that occured later, I have to say this...the Hall of Deception has to be the single most fun encounter I have ever been involved with, either as a player or a DM. Everyone(except the player running the doppleganger up to this point) was thoroughly confused and suspicious. Were it not for the party's barbarian decapitating his double in the first round of combat(greataxe criticals are beautiful things) it might have been a TPK. Very nearly was. Anyway, back to the story at hand...

After dying ingloriously to owlbears, Vanthis accepted being raised from the dead to give the ol' hero thing a second try. Everything was going well, until the party reached the Hall of Deception, and spent a good deal of resources(and patience) dealing with and recovering from the dopplegangers. Physically and emotionally drained, the party pushed onward, determined to find the source of this bizarre conspiracy hatched against them. Telakin awaited them upon his throne, in the guise of Allustan. Catching much of the party in the doorway will a wall of fire, he then managed to catch Vanthis and Dhar'shan, the parties main real warriors, with a confusion spell. During the first couple rounds, both fled from Telakin to the far side of the room(the wall of fire kept them from escaping the room entirely.) Unfortunately, on the 3rd round, Dhar'shan turned and attacked Vanthis. For the next several rounds, they traded blows until Dhar'shan landed a grievous blow on Vanthis, cutting him down.(sometimes, greataxe criticals aren't that beautiful)

Andoran

Name: Finari
Class: Rogue 4/Paladin 6/Shadowbane Inquisitor 5
Adventure: The Prince of Redhand
Location of Death: The Well of Triptych Knowledge, The Overgod's Court
Catalyst: Finari was doing exactly what she was supposed to do: Fighting evil and corruption.

The party arrived in the Overgod's Court having dispatched the Hangman Golem that had been guarding the upper level. Upon arriving, the Aspect of the Overgod immediately attacked. Recognizing the Aspect as a more powerful version of the evil creature that the party had fought back in the Dourstone mines, Finari moved in and attacked with everything she had. Using her hold sword, her smite evil ability and her smite corruption ability, Finari inflicted massive wounds upon the monstrosity. In doing so, Finari go the full attention of the Aspect of the Overgod. The Aspect unleashed the full might of all of his attacks on her since she was the only party member with a weapon that bypassed its damage reduction. Within two rounds, the remainder of Finari's stoneskin was gone (much of her stoneskin had been used up in the fight with the Hangman Golem in the upper level of the underground complex) and Finari was torn to pieces by the onslaught. (-43 hit points!) This was in full view of Finari's husband Duncan, who could do nothing to save his wife since he had used up his healing spells on Windra, the party's sorcerer. The Aspect was dispatched the next round (largely do to a critical hit from Duncan's heavy mace) but it was much too late to save Finari.

Fortunately, Windra and Duncan teleported to Magepoint to have Finari resurrected.

PC Name: Grim Firestorm (male shield dwarf Barbarian 1/Battlerager 3/Frenzied Berserker 10/Warmain 5)
Adventure: Into the Wormcrawl Fissure
Location of Death: Part V: The Tabernacle of Worms
Catalyst: Abandoned by allies.
Long Description: The Mercenaries fought their way past the overworms guarding the front door of the temple and bravely stood against many cultists in the Temple of the Worm. After the battle, injured and low on mana, the team decided to make camp in the corner of the room. After thirty minutes, a death squad of avolakia priests attacked. The onslaught was unrelenting. Taravin held a greater skeleton key, which allow him and four allies to escape through a magical doorway. Unfortunately for Grim, Taravin had five allies.

The party escaped to safety, leaving Grim alone to face down four avolakia priests. He was soon held and then rendered unconscious. The exact details of his death after that are too terrible and gruesome to contemplate.

My campaign counts 4 deaths so far:
the first was

Name: Mirnak (male Half Orc Druid of Mielikki - CG)
Adventure: Spire of Long Shadows
Location: part 3: The Worm Truth
Catalyst: Mak'ar' scorching rays after Mak'ar avasculate

Description: the druid died heroically trying to put an end to Mak'ar existence by touching him with the heal effect of the seventh fragment of the Rod of Seven Part (Shattered Scepter of Calim in my campaign since we play in Faerun). After that the fighter of the group grab the dead body and the party teleported to Magepoint. the druid was buried in his homeland by the party and the other druids of his circle, in the core of High Forest in the North.

then

Name: Elyn Tywien (female Half Elf Wizard/Archmage - CG)
Adventure: Library of Last Resort
Location: part 2 - island of storm
Catalyst: getting too close to an Octopus tree (tentacle critical hit and grab)

the unlucky wizard was promptly "revivified" by the party cleric

Name: Elyn Tywien
Adventure: Library of last resort
Location: part 3 - The Tilagos trials
Catalyst: a Krathanos' Gargoyle critical hit and bow full attack

the party was trying to lure Krathanos outside his keep and was intercepted by the Gargoyle while the titan was coming. in the fight that followed the wizard was slain by a gargoyle and revivified by the cleric.

Name: Niam Miendinoth (calishite human female Rogue/spymaster - CN)
Adventure: Library of Last Resort
Location: part 3 - The Tilagos trials
Catalyst: low on hp and Darl Quethos' "power word kill"

while exploring the vale of thorns the pcs were ambushed by Darl Quethos (in my campaign a cleric/shadow adept of Shar and not of Myrkul) and his allies. in the fight that followed Niam was trying to blind Darl's Robe of Eyes in order to sneak attack him, when the priest anticipate her and used his 9th level domain spell (darkness) to get rid of her. she was revivified the following round.


PC Name: Kyra (female human bard 7)
Adventure: The Hall of Harsh Reflections
Location of Death: Zyrxog's realm
Catalyst: Octopin + Rend
Long Description: When the party was ambushed by the first group of octopins past Zyrxog's sigil, the bard ended up left all alone against one octopin. Two rends later, and the bard's lingering song was all that was left of Kyra.

PC Name: Half-breed(male half-orc barbarian/fighter/bear warrior 8)
Adventure: The Hall of Harsh Reflections
Location of Death: Zyrxog's Realm
Catalyst: Octopin + Rend (Take Two)
Long Description: This time, it was the half-orc's turn to die to the octopin's rend ability. Only this time, it was the advanced octopin, and it took 3 rounds of playing whack-a-mole(knocked unconscious, healed, stoop up, provoked AoO, knocked unconscious, wash rinse repeat) for him to stay down for good.

Reach, Combat Reflexes, and Rend. That advanced Octopin was nasty. And it certainly didn't help that they fought it in the brain room after the warlock chose to wander off and get the octopin's attention before they had successfully dealt with the brain pillar.


PC Name: "Fate" (male human rogue 4)
Adventure: 3FoE
Location of Death: Horseshoe Cavern - Chokers
Catalyst: Bad hit points and bad balance rolls
Long Description: Fate had been the lynchpin of the group, but he had only 17hp. He had stood toe-to-toe with the grimlock barbarian and survived but fate waved an ill hand when he failed his Balance check and fell to the mercy of the chokers. The chokers had already been spotted and Fate had nearly killed one of them with missile fire forcing them to flee. When he fell with only a few hit points left I saw revenge. In a scene like from Jurassic Park 2 they swarmed him, one got taken to 0 hit points and fled - dying in the process and other got a hit in place taking Fate to negatives. The grapple was automatic and no one hit the choker before it squeezed the life from Fate...

PC Name: Mael Gabrian (male human Cleric 19)
Adventure: Into the Wormcrawl Fissure
Location of Death: Part V: The Tabernacle of Worms
Catalyst: Oodles of noodles, er... worms.
Long Description: After getting stomped by the wormdrake, the Mercenaries regrouped, recovered, and re-stocked in Longsaddle. Once again using the power of the greater skeleton key, the Mercenaries returned to plumb the depths of the wormdrake lair again. The team spread out to avoid a breath weapon, which left Mael isolated on a ledge. The dragon dropped down and savagely mauled him.

PC Name: Summerled, male elf rogue 10
Adventure: A Gathering of Winds
Location: The True Tomb
Catalyst: A long drop and a short stop

Long Description: After opening the doors to the tomb, Summerled was chosen to find the path across the room. The party tied two coils of rope together and held on to one end while Summerled had the other end secured around his waist.

Summerled sucessfully found his way across to the doors at the opposite end of the room and garnered the unwanted attention of the elder air elementals. Summerled tried to make his way back across the columns as the air elementals attacked. He botched his jump check and fell into the mists below. The party had a chance to save him, but failed their collective strength check to hang on. The rope was yanked forcefully from their hands, leaving nasty rope-burns, as Summerled proceeded on his way to splatter on the floor two-hundred feet below.

The party's druid has agreed to cast reincarnation, so Summerled shall return next session.


My campaign had its first casualties last night, against the organized forces of the Battle Temple of Hextor in the Three Faces of Evil.

Deceased/disabled: Crunk, half-orc barbarian 1/fighter 2.
Cause: Final, overly confident raging charge against tiefling guards, where Theldrick's lieutenant Garras quickly counterattacked with his heavy flail.

(This player had to bow out of the campaign, and so was looking for a glorious way to exit.) Crunk, having used Power Attack and Cleave to cut his way through the vast majority of the Hextor cultists, tiefling guards, and the Beast (which in my campaign was a displacer beast rather than a dire boar), was finally laid low by Garras's heavy flail after his rage finally ebbed. However, he stabilized at -5, and so the Faceless One (after the PCs retreated for the day to lick their wounds) will choose to heal and cast charm person on the fallen half-orc. Crunk will be making a reappearance as the wizard's bodyguard when the PCs finally storm the Faceless One's labyrinth... and when a raging 18 STR half-orc barbarian is a mage's muscle, beware! *evil grin*

Deceased: Golmackan ("Mac"), spiked-chain-wielding goliath warblade 2.
Cause: Failed attempt to recover the disabled Crunk, and one of Garras's tiefling guards with a greataxe.

Initially trying to recover Crunk from the sands of the Battle Temple (Theldrick never closed the doors, as the party never fully entered), Mac was struck low by a near-full-damage hit from Garras's heavy flail. Although the PC bard of the party got him up on his feet with a cure light wounds, and the party cleric was able to give him some healing, Mac fell again while he and the cleric were trying to retreat down the entry corridor, this time to a crippling blow from a tiefling's greataxe. He bled out the next turn, having failed to stabilize, and the party was forced to retreat. Theldrick will be using desecrate and animate dead on the statue of Hextor in the Battle Temple, and will have the corpses of the displacer beast, Mac, the fallen tiefling guards and the slain warrior-cultists ready to stand in the defense of the Temple.

-------
In all, the attack on the temple went a full 17 (!!!) rounds of continuous, nonstop combat from the entry doors into the Battle Temple and back again before the party could successfully fall back and crank the elevator back up the shaft -- more than long enough for many buffs (and the barbarian's rage) to run their full course and expire.

Adventure: The Spire of Long Shadows
Location: The Door to the Halls of Knowledge

After a rough battle against the Kyuss Knight Nezzarin and his Eviscerator Beetle ‘pets’ the heroes continued into the Spire. Sir Guy opened the door to the Halls of Knowledge and was felled by an Invocation of the Worm and two sword swinging Undead bad guys in one round.

Character Windra , female elf sorcerer 15
Adventure: Library of Last Resort

Windra moved up to cast stone skin on the Auron, the party's dwarf fighter. This placed her with in range of the Octopus tree which unloaded on both Auron and Windra. Auron survived the onslaught without too much trouble. Windra was at -30 hit points.

Windra was later resurrected by the the party's cleric Duncan.


PC Name: Sama (male half-elf Sorcerer 8)
Adventure: Hall of Harsh Reflections
Location of Death: Zyrxog's Domain, Scrying Pool
Catalyst: Stunned + empowered lightning bolt
Long Description: Improved Initiative helped the Evildoer to act twice before the group. A readied mind blast set the perfect opportunity for Zyrxog: 5 players in a line, 2 of them stunned and thus unable to roll for Reflex. A lucky roll for 42 points of electricity damage later, one was dead, the other at -7.

PC Name: Mael Gabrian (male human Cleric 19)
Adventure: Into the Wormcrawl Fissure
Location of Death: Part V: The Tabernacle of Worms
Catalyst: Dragotha
Long Description: After falling victim to Dragotha's gaze, Mael was helpless for a coup de grace from the dracolich. He didn't make it.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

PC Name: Saedd West (male human Fighter 5/Pious Templar 9/Wormhunter 5)
Adventure: Into the Wormcrawl Fissure
Location of Death: Part V: The Tabernacle of Worms
Catalyst: Dragotha
Long Description: Saedd bravely brought the fight to Dragotha but was unable to withstand the first round of the dracolich's full attack action. Saedd died before Dragotha could finish his wing buffets.

PC Name: Ranulph Wathbater (male human Berserker 2/Fighter 2/Hellreaver 10/Paladin of Freedom 3/Rogue 2)
Adventure: Into the Wormcrawl Fissure
Location of Death: Part V: The Tabernacle of Worms
Catalyst: Dragotha
Long Description: Ranulph charged Dragotha but fell victim to his gaze attack. After Dragotha realized the worms were not converting Ranulph, the dracolich used a coup de grace to finish him off.


PC Name: Cid d'Lyandar (artificer/windwright captain), Vigil (warforged knight), Oamah (half-orc fighter/dragon warlord), Keifer (paladin/deadgrim/greyguard)
Adventure: Dawn of a New Age
Location of Death: Spire base
Catalyst: Broodfriends are bad. Three are deadly. Three plus uber Kyuss Knight == near TPK
Long Description: Group decides to fly directly to the tower at the base of the Spire, then find Lashona. Approach by air is watched by the Broodfiends, who attack en mass. Group thinks they can ram the spire and run inside, but are stopped by Balabar Smenk (replacing Maralee) and some Kyuss Knights. Broodfriends eat brains quicker than you can say 2d8 per round, but luckily normal damage falls them first. Party druid does a lot of hurt by shapechanging a lot, but greater dispel magic at will stops that eventually. Party miracles themselves out when the paladin drops. Lesson: Don't fight groups at once, and protect yourself from the Broodfiends!

In what I consider the most memorable encounter of the campaign since the Battle Temple of Hextor, my players surprised me and avoided yet another TPK, but not without casualties. Out of respect for the fallen, the description shall be a tad longer than usual. After this last encounter the death tally for the campaign has risen to 11...

Names: Jarryn (human warmage 2/wizard 3/ultimate magus 8), Mathias Burne (human cleric 8/ordained champion of Hextor 5), Perren Moonmeadow (grey elf beguiler 13), Estene Moonmeadow (grey elf warlock 10, cohort)
Adventure: Spire of Long Shadows
Location: Chamber of Ascension
Catalyst: Poor Reflex saves vs. eight invocations of the Worm

Description: When the Warhounds opened up the doors leading into the Halls of Corruption, they were greeted by Kelvos the Wormtouched and the two angels of Worm. After being targeted by a prismatic spray and a wages of sin, Jarryn effectively trapped the trio inside the chamber with a wall of force. Kelvos, seeing that he couldn't handle these mortals on his own, teleported to the Halls of Knowledge and summoned the 3 swords of Kyuss and the wormcaller to the fight. Bursting into the chamber on the following round, the swords of Kyuss opened up with a volley of worm invocations, killing both Perren and Estene and seriously injuring three of the other five characters. Most of the party was within 30 ft. of the pit during this combat and suffered a -2 penalty to all attacks, saving throws, and skill checks (except for Mathias who was neither good nor neutral). Steelwind's (elf ranger/scout) high Reflex saves coupled with his evasion ability left him unscathed. Jarryn used Otiluke's ring to cast Otiluke's resilient sphere as an immediate action, also leaving him unharmed. Combat continued with spells such as delay death and close wounds keeping Mathias and Kayla (dwarf barbarian) alive. Aurora (human paladin of Pelor) heroically kept Kelvos busy until Mathias finally arrived and together they slew the corrupted eladrin. Steelwind, Kayla, and Jarryn managed to destroy the swords of Kyuss and the wormcaller, but not before five more invocations of the Worm were set off, killing Jarryn and sending Kayla into the negatives. (The only limitation I imposed on the villains during this combat was I never had a sword of Kyuss use an invocation of the Worm two rounds in a row.) Barely alive, the party picked up their fallen companions and began healing themselves, but had to prepare for the imminent entrance of the two angels of the Worm since Jarryn's wall of force was just about to disappear. The angels were joined by two wormswarms. This second part of the combat saw Estene's body devoured by a wormswarm and Aurora, under the effect of wages of sin attack a fellow PC and lose her paladin powers. Mathias, still under the effect of a potion of fly charged the two fallen angels to give time to his companions to escape. He fought extremely well, defeating both angels nearly by himself. Against the last angel of the Worm, Mathias' killing blow came at the same time that his righteous might ran out, killing Mathias instantly and sending both combatants plummeting to the ground. Fortunately, his body was retrieved by Steelwind, who had returned to aid our fallen hero, before it was devoured by a wormswarm. The last three living Warhounds limped their way back over the obsidian ring to lick their wounds after a 22-round battle.

Character Windra , female elf sorcerer 15
Adventure: Library of Last Resort
Location: The Maze of Menhirs

The party was looking for the crystals necessary to activate the Gate of Storms. While two of the party members were doing aerial recon, Windra, Vandar and Auron were looking for the crystals on the ground. Krekie cast improved invisibility and her godlike move silently skills to get close enough to Windra and take her out. Windra never new what hit her.

After the party dispatched Krekie, Windra was raised by the party cleric Duncan.

Taldor RPG Superstar 2009 Top 32

Bring out your dead, bring out your dead... This one is a near-TPK, with the sole survivor alone and without backup in the jungle. Rather than chronicling her death from cholera, we decided to create a whole-new bunch of characters to tackle the beast that is SoLS again.

This list is ordered according to time of death.

Name: Lyssandra, female human sorcerer 13 (Celestial Bloodline)
Adventure: Spire of Long Shadows
Location: Eastern Entrance
Catalyst: Invocations of the Worm

Name: Rashkar, male human cleric of Garl Glittergold 13 (Don't even ask...)
Adventure: Spire of Long Shadows
Location: Eastern Entrance

Catalyst: Too many enemies, killing blow by Invocation

Name: Frenk Silverdigger, male human fighter 13
Adventure: Spire of Long Shadows
Location: Just feet away from safety across the obsidian ring.
Catalyst: Angel of the Worm in pursuit

Details:
After experiencing the first two visions while still soaring above the streets of ruined Kulat Mar, the Diamonds bravely (and foolishly) decided to enter the Spire with only minimal protective magic. They had been spotted by the Kyuss knight guarding the spire beforehand, and Nezzarin prepared an ambush once they approached the door leading to the inner chambers. He send forth his beetles, and when the group sorcerer disintegrated the bug without it ever causing damage to the dwarven "front tank", knew he was in trouble. He send the other beetle to hold back the group while he alerted his ally Kelvos the Wormtouched. The group, however, spend 2 rounds after the initial shock rather ineffectively assaulting the second eviscerator beetle (in part due to his hypnotic aura).

When Nezzarin had bolstered his forces with the Angels of the Worm, he called back the badly-wounded beetle. This was actually me being a bit lenitent to give them some chance to regain their footing and either flee, or at least take the fight back to Nezzarin. Yet the group wondered at the retreat, added a protection from evil here, a death ward there, and a cure moderate wounds to spare but in general did not do much to help their situation. Worst of all, they remained pinned in the eastern entry room. The beetle consumed a wormswarm from the Angel's room, going from 12 HP left to full. Nezzarim and Kelvos called on the Wormcaller and Swords of Kyuss, who advanced on the party under the Ghaele's protective aura, for fear of fireballs and similar magic. They would not have needed to worry. All the while, the Sword Archons circled the Spire from the outside, to cut off the retreat path. All the while, the party bickered, the Cleric decided to step right into the corridor towards the central chamber, but stop after one step... and when finally, the sorceress noticed the approaching sword archons, it was already almost too late. She managed to shoot a disintegrate at the approaching Archon, yet managed to miss his touch AC. She stepped out of the doorway to avoid the approaching fallen angels - and right into the "fireball formation" the group maintained in the antechamber.

Two of the Swords and the Wormcaller stepped into line of sight soon after, unloading two invocations of the worm which hit all characters except for the mystic theurge. They were enough to fell and outright kill Lyssandra, and the Flame Strike by the Wormcaller finished the job on the cleric. The assassin had cast greater invisibility beforehand, and handily evaded all three blasts. The Sword archons entered the antechamber (careful not to enter the "AoE zone"), and while they did not do much damage, they severely restricted the parties mobility. So when the Mystic Theurge decided get the party out of this rapidly closing noose, she caught an AoO, and promptly missed her concentration check by 1. At that point, Azrael struck out on her own, zipping past the Angels of the Worm and flying away as fast as she could. Being greater invisible, and with only Nezzarin having line of detection, she got away free.

On the next round, the Kyuss Knight closed to melee, while the Swords merrily continued their invocations. The elven theurge fell first, but her dwarven friend was not far behind. The human fighter, being Death Warded, was unaffected by the invocations, but did not like his odds at all, and made a mad rush for the obsidian ring. He nearly got there, but the last of the Sword Archon's flyby attacks reduced him to negative HP, causing him crash into the ring and end his life on Kyuss-infested ground.

All in all, a near TPK caused by lack of planing, nearly unbelievably passive play, and a bit of bad luck (as well as a too-competent startoff. Had they not killed the first beetle as offhandedly, i doubt Nezzarin would have called in all the forces in the spire). The last member of the Diamonds, survived by virtue of a greater invisibility spell, flight and the wise decision to cut her losses as her friends started dropping left and right.

Andoran

PC Name: Lillandrin Moonmeadow, female elf Wilder 11
Adventure: A Gathering of Winds
Location: Icosiol's Tomb
Catalyst: Frontal assault on Greater Air Elementals

After Summerled's fatal fall and subsequent reincarnation, the party decided that the only way to get across the room safely was to "call out" the elementals and fight them directly.

Several party members were dropped into the negatives. Lil, unfortunately was dropped a little too far into the negatives (-13). She was subsequently reincarnated, coming back as a MALE half-elf.


Sorry for the long post, been awhile since I've updated this. Here goes...

PC Name: Brother Joshua (Human cleric 9)
Adventure: The Champion's Belt
Location of Death: Shrine of Kyuss
Catalyst: Good saving throws
Long Description: So, several times, Bozal attempted to annihilate the young cleric from behind the safety of several spawn. After spell after spell failed to fell Brother Joshua, Bozal instead closed into melee and proceeded to bash the other cleric's brain in with his club.

PC Name: Zhakarai (Human scout 9)
Adventure: The Champion's Belt
Location of Death: Shrine of Kyuss
Catalyst: Leaving the party's sight
Long Description: The party had retreated into the coffin storage room during the fight with the spawn and Bozal Zahol. Zhakarai, unfortunately, had been blocked into the hallway to the pump room, and was brought into unconsciousness by the marauding spawn. As one of the spawn bent down to infest the unconscious youth with worms, a single bead from a necklace of fireballs incinerated the remaining spawn, and Zhakarai as well.

PC Name: Zhakarai (Human scout 8)
Adventure: The Champion's Belt
Location of Death: The Greyhawk City Arena
Catalyst: Madtooth HUNGERS!
Long Description: After being resurrected in secret beneath the arena, Zhakarai stood tall in the fight against Madtooth the Hungry. So tall, in fact, that Madtooth tried to eat him. Unfortunately, Zhakarai didn't taste very good(a chill fire shield will do that), so Madtooth spit Zhakarai out into the crowd. He crashed into the expensive seats, but did not manage to take any spectators with him.

PC Name: Nidget (Tiefling wizard/sandshaper 11)
Adventure: The Spire of Long Shadows
Location of Death: On the road to Magepoint
Catalyst: Filge returns!
Long Description: Having his life spared did nothing to lessen the anger Filge felt over his humiliation at the hands of the People of the Sun. Escaping from Diamond Lake's jails, he sought revenge, even making a deal with certain devils who also sought the party's demise(or at least the acquisition of a certain artifact from them.) As the party attempted to wind walk to Magepoint, Filge ambushed them with a timely dispel magic and a pair of bone devil allies. Half of the party fell from the sky, crashing to the ground. During the fight, Filge targeted Nidget with a chain lightning, felling the tiefling and wounding her allies.

PC Name: Ixit (Poisondusk lizardfolk druid/warshaper 12)
Adventure: The Spire of Long Shadows
Location of Death: Halls of Corruption
Catalyst: Discorporating Dive
Long Description: Ixit was targeted by one of the sword archons for a discorporating dive. Lizard guts went everywhere. Icky!

PC Name: Brother Joshua (human cleric 12)
Adventure: The Spire of Long Shadows
Location of Death: Chamber of Contemplation
Catalyst: Finger of Death
Long Description: Brother Joshua just seems to draw the attention of creatures with death magic. Unfortunately, this time, he actually failed his saving throw.

This brings our campaign's grand total of deaths up to 12. Deadliest fights would have to be the fight with the Kelvos and the 2 sword archons, and the fight against the spawns of Kyuss and Bozal Zahol. Close calls include the battles with The Faceless One and Grallak Kur in Three faces of Evil, and the fight with the Harbinger(maze + paralyzing touch make for great ways to whittle down your opponents!)

PC Name: Shakar, Human Psion/Sorcerer/Cerebromancer 11

Adventure: The Spire of Long Shadows

Location: On the road to Magepoint

Catalyst: Possession of the Rod of Seven Parts fragment when the devils arrived.

Long Description: The devils arrived and attacked the party. Two of the bone devils isolated Shakar by use of a hemispherical Wall of Ice.

Although the party managed to partially melt the sphere, Shakar was badly wounded by the time he tried to fly out of the hole in the roof. An attack of opportunity brought him into negatives.

The next round, one of the barbed devls used Order's Wrath, which finished him off. The party's Favored Soul, in an attempt to kill the devils before they could make off with the Rod, dropped a Flamestrike on the area, which, along with killing the devils, left no doubts that Raise Dead, Reincarnation, or Ressurection were out of the question.

St. Segine D'Orvenna, LE, 15 Artificer (Not Blastificer), Human Alumni Lich (Dicefreaks)
Enthax, CE, Half Orc Barbarian 7 / Frenzied Berserker 10

Adventure - 12. Dawn of a New Age

Location: Modified Age of worms - Kyuss Obelisk

Catalyst: No skill points in balance, a rod, and two artifacts that don't play nice together.

Segine had two goals, and that was to have one of each item in the game and to always make a profit, even off of his allies. His hobbies include gem crafting and item crafting and marketeering. At first level he bought 25gp in raw material components to make a 75 gp black onyx gem to turn a profit (25->75->225->675->2025) and continued to do this during various breaks in the game(as an artificer at level 17 (15 after lichdom) we calculated that he had accumulated around 600K+ in gold from savings through item creation and from being a gem maker, and when he got fabricate, it was over. Although he did lose almost 8000 exp from item creation)(still have my charactersheet in excel format). The fighter in the group was a spiked chain abuser, and the cleric was a whip user, so Segine had clients. Finally segine at level 17 decided. I am going to boost myself up, and become a lich. We used the one that is on the dicefreaks website to test it for balance and see if there is a requirement for a level adjustment if you abide by the rules. I asked the DM and he approved. So 21500 exp points later, i am a nauseated "Level 2" 15 Artificer Human lich. Still no spell resistance, and he finally gets back to the party.
<<Fast Forward>>
Segine, after seeing the sphere go into the well of many world's, comes up with a brilliant plan to throw the rod of cancellation into the sphere. He throws and misses, but also fails the balance check. So Kyuss see's a lich flying by him towards the sphere, and then KABOOM! Segine who had 140 hitpoints, took 1020 points of damage, and so did Kyuss, and Enthax. No Saving throw, and a nice crater as well. I don't know how big it would be, i didn't put that down in my notes. Doh.

But as Scott(best friend and DM) said.. Look it's a bird. it's a plane.. no its super clutz.

And Robert(Enthax, CE, 17 Barbarian, who used skill ranks to learn to read from a cookbook, and had a fascination with grilled cheese sandwiches) - "I will name a meal after him.. The Segine-wich.."

"St. Segine D'Orvenna, a true hero." 660-682 AD
"Enthax" 658-692 (don't have his age, but we referred to him as "Guilty by association" since he would start bar fights, and we would all go to jail together.)

Cheliax

I really miss killing my players in SoLS and posting here :( The AoW has claimed many lives!!!

Deceased: Barbleu (Barbarian 6/Cleric of Kord 6) & Louaren (Mage 12)

Episode: Spire of Long Shadows

Cause of death: following quite a long string of rotten tactical decisions, they ended digested by the Overworm of the Sea of Worms

Circumstances: characters (6 of them, no less) decided to split at the edge of the long pit from the hall of columns of the Ziggurat (First mistake; actually 2 players decided to go to bed, and agreed that their characters would protect the rear...). 4 others came flying down, and discovered the Sea of Worms. They decided to land an an island of rock in the middle of it, and the Druid went back up and picked up the 2 previous ones, the Paladin and the Sorceress (second BIG mistake: split the group in 3...).
Then mayhem was followed by Hallali when the 2 Wormcallers quickly dispelled the only remaining flying character (followed by a few slashes of black energy), "suggested" to the monk that a bath in the sea of worms would be beneficial, and called the owerworm to finish the work (gulped the 2 others). The mage did not use quickly enough his greater teleport scroll (about the last mistake).
The monk was picked up by the others 2 minutes later agonizing (-8 hits and 0 INT) and survived. The druid was saved from the sea of worms (air walk dispelled) by the sorceress, and from the wormcallers by the Paladin (2 turn undead quite effective).

Surprinsingly, they crawled back up to lick their wounds...

Rest in peace Barbleu and Louaren.


PC Name: Barg (male half orc fighter 4)
Adventure: 3FoE
Location of Death: Grimlocks Cliff Chamber
Catalyst: Trying to out intimidate the chieftain

PC Name: Travis (male human cleric 4/wizard 1)
Adventure: 3FoE
Location of Death: Grimlocks Cliff Chamber
Catalyst: Grimlock struck a lucky critical

In a prolonged fight in the horseshoe cavern the party had allowed one of the grimlocks to get away and warn the others. The grimlocks grouped above the cliffs to each of corridores (added cliff to route to cleric too) and waited. When the party got close they attacked from above with long spears and swarmed from the other locations. From atop the chieftain hurdled abuse (which the party could not understand) and Barg reciprocated it back. The chief raged and attacked. Barg took the brunt of the attacks from the entire camp and it looked like he was going to survive. But then a crit came in and his hit points suddenly looked a lot smaller. Barg eventually dropped leaving the route open to the trest of the party. Travis took a hit and dropped from another critical leaving a ranger and wizard (a rogue no one had spotted) to fight 5 grimlocks. Fortunately the chiefs rage stopped and he went to negatives.

They retreated so that the ranger could use missile fire and eventually - with the fresh rogue - they killed all the grimlocks.


PC Name: Tabitha (female human wizard 5)
Adventure: 3FoE
Location of Death: Grimlocks Cliff Chamber
Catalyst: Not rested for long enough and critical with battle axe

Tabitha, the rogue and ranger rested in a rope trick untill they saw grimlocks moving around decided to bail out and attack. They did not expect the cleric and when the rogue failed the will save vs Hold Person things went wrong. I should have coup de grace the held rogue but instead I tied him while the others pushed forward to attac kthe ranger and wizard. A wizard on 15 hit points does not far well against a 8 damage rolled on a critical hit with a battle axe for 33 points of damage. SPLAT!

While not a PC, I still count cohorts in the KIA column:

Cohort Name: Bubba-Chomp (15th level Aasimar Fighter) - Planar Cohort of Dominic Cornelius
Adventure: Kings of the Rift
Location: Kongin-Thulnir

While heading into the southern section of Kongin-Thulnir, the party was ambushed by Xyzanth, the Wyrm Fang Dragon. After a brief and violent struggle - 4 rounds - the heroes were able to drive Xyzanth off, but at a terrible price: Bubba-Chomp, planar Cohort to Brother Dominic Cornelius ended up on the wrong side of the dragon's lifedraining maw.

PC Name: Fourman Guy (4th level Bard/3rd level Druid/2nd level Arcane Hierophant/6th level Focain Lyrist/1st level Sublime Chord)
Adventure: Kings of the Rift
Location: Kongen-Thulnir – the Royal Palace of Achaime Silvereye, Mad-King of the Rift (side trek)

Fourman fell in battle with the Dolgaunt minions of Tharizdun that were defending the underground temple of the Dark God. Caught in two Blade Barriers will do that.


I finally have to add to the list. It was kinda ironic and made me feel bad as a DM. I was being a bit of a softie and after one heck of an incredible rescue (don't get me wrong, I always let the characters work, but I apparently have troubles killing them..) The player (one of my best friends) of this character said to toughen up.

You can guess what happened;

PC Name: Valerius (Lv 11 wizard)
Adventure: Gathering of winds
Location of Death: Outside the Cairne
Catalyst: Ilthane
Long Description: The party planned to surprise Ilthane when coming out of the Tomb. (They had been chased in it by her at the start of the adventure. I had buffed Ilthane up a bit, because the party existed of 6 characters and I had read of the one round Ilthane kills here.) Anyhow, they teleported out of sight, but still inside the Tomb, thanks to the sorcerer scrying on beforehand, they knew she was waiting. But she had taken hostages too from the village, complicating the situation. In the end they decided to attack from all sides, which left the squishies, invisible but vulnerable in the bushes, while trying to save the hostages.

Ilthane nearly killed the fighter, but then took wing and flew to the wizard who had taunted her when they ran at the start of the adventure. She sniffed him out and tore him to pieces.

After that, it must be said, the cleric did a big hit, Ilthane tried to flee flying (at 3Hp), but got downed by a lucky magic missile (! penetrated spell resistance), and crushed into the forest.

In the aftermath everyone was counting their gold for a true ressurection scroll..

But I still don't like killing characters.. but I guess I'll try this path for a while (since ressurection scrolls are more readily available).


PC Name: Sir Pallas (male human Paladin 11)
Adventure: The Champion's Belt
Location of Death: Arena
Catalyst: Greater Invisibility and Sneak Attack
Long Description: So it came to a final showdown on the arena grounds - harsh accusations on behalf of the new champions were supported by evidence, and Loris Raknian opted for the only possibility to get out alive and cleared: He called for an duell of honor one-on-one. He did show impressive fighting capabilities, and had Sir Pallas deeply wounded, but as Pallas scored a critical Smite Evil, he lost his temper. Disregarding the duell's rules, he called for Okorals help. Blood-spitting and on his knees in the arena's dust, he saw his last revenge fulfilled, as three deadly arrows punctured Sir Pallas lungs.

Sir Pallas was revivified the next round, and hailed by 25000 spectarors.

Silver Crusade

PC Name: Kale (male human Fighter/Rogue/Assassin 25)
Adventure: Into the Wormcrawl Fissure
Location of Death: Apostle Cave Entrance
Catalyst: Suprise, losing initative, swollow whole, Stomach Acids
Long Description: Ok, well as I was running the adventure as an epic level one and only 1 of 2 that I ran in my campaign, I advanced N'vesh slightly, I increased the damage from his acid among onther things, I also made the acid act immediately, and instead of regular skeletons I made them Bone creatures from the BoVD (skeletons with levels and intelligence of the slain creature). The party starts to fly into the cave only to be attacked by the bugs, they retreated to the entrance to discuss what to do when N'vesh attacks and goes after the most dangerous looking one. In the Suprise round he bites Kale, Next round he was the first to go with initiative, so he swallowed Kale. Kale immediately takes his Con in acid damage and becomes skeletonized. The party starts wailing on N'Vesh, who retreats the following round with a full stomach of Kale. Kale's cohort teleports into the adventure (she wasn't on the adventure since she was pregnant) and wishes for her husband's body and gear so he can be ressed. Needless to say they were suprised when the "skeleton" got up and started attacking them, much the same way Kale would. So they killed Kale again, then they ressed him (epic levels can bypass being undead).

PC Name: Cora, halfling Rogue/Cleric/Shadowdancer

Adventure: The Spire of Long Shadows

Location: The upper main chamber of the ziggaruat

Cause of Death: Irritated Worm Nagas.

Long Desription: The party was examining the shaft in the middle of the chamber and decided that there was definitely some evil dead things down there. Cora, and the favored Soul, Mace, decided that they were going to use create water and bless to dump twenty-something gallons of Holy Water down the shaft.

The Wrom Nagas, being annoyed, cast Slay Living on both of them. Mace saved, took damage, but survived. Cora failed and dropped dead on the spot. Fortunately for her, the party had access to a Ressurection spell, so she is still in the hunt.
