Make them die embarassed!


Pathfinder First Edition General Discussion

Dark Archive

First off, let's hope I put this in the right thread!
I have this thing where, after playing the same character for awhile, I like to think of random ways to kill my enemies that make them embarrassed to admit how they died. My recent being my Trox Brawler who chokes his foes to death with his two main arms while feeling up the victim with the other 4 arms while singing love songs to them...

Anyone else got any other embarrassing deaths they want to share? I'm curious now.


With all due respect ...

/facepalm


Oooh this thread seems interesting... D: WHAT THE F-.

Not what I was expecting!

Can't say I've ever done this. Or would.


My nephew always pantomimes his victorious character squat thrusting into slain enemies mouths whilst uttering the word "dip" with each bend of the knees. Quite hilarious.

The Exchange

I think whether or not they're embarrassed is up to them. Have none of them died with a smile on their face? Or perhaps communicated telepathically "Daddy like" or things of that sort?


Anxiously waiting to hear some cool stories and so far pretty let down i must say...


So, to set the scene, this was the last session of the campaign. We were all 18th level, using a plot device to take down Arazni, who had ascended to goddess of the undead in a homebrewed campaign. I'm playing a sorcerer with leadership, bringing along my goblin buddy as a cohort who's outfitted with utility, buff, and debuff spells. When I grabbed Leadership, I also picked up Battlemind Link, which due to some misreading on me and the GM's part gave us the impression that the targets shared the same initiative instead of initiative die result.

Upon the battle, after severely limiting her with an artifact of a cannon that was designed to blow deities to smithereens, I decide to give one particular spell a chance, Finger of Death. Probably a dumb move, but I was spending so much time helping buff the cannon at the beginning of the fight, I wanted to do something blasty. With the same initiative, my goblin cohort also laid down a casting of Major Curse.

If I remember correctly, she rolled natural 1s on her saves. If not both, the rolled VERY low to resist the Major Curse, I distinctly remember the nat 1 on the FoD.

At this point, we were all laughing, so the GM decided that the purposes of this turn, the somatic components of both spells were my sorcerer and his cohort both flipping the double bird, telling her off with some profanities I'm not sure are allowed on the boards, and finishing up with "And you're ugly!" We were cracking up at that for a while.

In retrospect, she probably SHOULD have been immune to FoD, but the GM decided to throw us a break for the image and nat 1, I suppose. Though she did end up healing all that the next round anyway, so it worked out.


I played a rogue a few years back. In one combat, I hopped off my horse and landed in a flanking position next to an enemy who just attacked my ally. Dunno what got into me but I said out loud "I grab him, snake two fingers under his nose and say this is what your mother smelled like! And..." then the dice rolled and I basically turned his spleen into mashed potatoes with my dagger. Combat came to a stand still for about five minutes while everyone at the table regained their composure. My character's RP had them laughing quite a bit on a regular basis, so they had already been set up for a one-liner.

Well, this is mostly in RotRL, but I'll try to refrain from any real spoilers here.

As a Vanraras Qinggong Monk, any part of our body is a weapon, so I've pelvic thrusted(Well, really Falcon Thrusted) many a foe to death. There was this huge undead bat underground, that I ran up the wall, launched myself from it at high speed, and smashed it's skull in with one swift Falcon Thrust. There was also another time where I performed a True Strike, then Falcon Thrusted a goblin 25ft into a forest of briars, impaling him(the irony) onto a giant thorn and killing him. Yep, he pretty much humps or thrusts everything to death. Nothing creepy lik the OP... just degrading :)

I'm still debating picking up Hamatula Strike...

You just helped me design the crazy killer I was thinking about for my next low level campaign. Thank you :D

Oh and that character is rather disturbing, if he was in my group I'd murder him in his sleep, perhaps even while singing a lovesong ;)

I'll try not to spoil anything, but the most embarrassing death I have seen recently was during the final, high level module of RotRL. I was running an encounter with a blue dragon, suitably powered up to deal with my gestalt PC's. For a change, the monster was really, really challenging, threatening to TPK a 16th level party. Then the monk, in a flash of desperate inspiration, decided to use a previously untried tactic -- quivering palm.

He deftly tumbles (high acrobatics plus an 18 on the die roll) into place behind the dragon, flanking it for maximum benefit. He announces he will use his quivering palm attack (stunned silence at the table) and rolls another 18, with flanking just enough to connect. Quivering palm is a Fort save, easy enough with a gargantuan dragon. And I roll a one -- dragon dies. The table was silent for a whole minute, before dissolving into hilarity. Later on, we had a discussion as to which vulnerable point the attack hit. The monk's player insisted the attack was a fatal strike to the groin; not sure I can post the other ideas thrown around the table involving feels and fists and grabs and such. Since I was DM, I ruled that the dragon suffered a mortal pat on the behind.
