    Drained to death by a succubus.

    >that's not unusual!

    The succubus didn't touch her at all. She just enjoyed the performance of a play.

    Granted I wanted to change characters anyway, but that was the weirdest way to go. Death by enjoying art.

    I had a party mess up disarming a trap. It trapped them in a treasure room where they then slowly starved to death. It was the damn-est thing, high level PCs, demon slayers, dragon killers, renowned heros. But the wizard couldn't get through the anti-teleportation wards and the barbarian was enfeebled and couldn't move the slab. Months of sessions, hard work, and strong characters. All just to watch them wither and starve.

    I guess it was my fault as a DM, I didn't realize I'd put a single check in that could doom the whole group.

    Vampire: the Masquerade

    A player rolled Charisma + Etiquette and scored 8x '1's... on 8 dice. I ruled that the following happened.

    "As you Prince LaCroix, with a rumble so charateristic of California an earthquake hits. The ceiling partially caves in, and you are run through by a metal ceiling beam. Fortunately, it missed your heart. As you consider getting up, the beam (which protrudes from the roof) is struck by lightning. Your impaled body is reduced to ash in front of the startled Prince."

    By this point the entire group were in paroxysms of laughter. Even the player whose character just bought it was chuckling and covering his face. I just shrugged apologetically and asked what else I was supposed to do with an octuple botch...

    It was my fault, but I mean come on, it was a DC 25 disable trap. Our rouge/sor could do that in his sleep. But he rolled a 1, and then a 2 to quickly roll past the falling slab to escape. I had no clue they'd all be in there at the same time, everyone passed the hidden trigger rolls I did as they entered. It was suppose to maybe trap one dude, and make them waste a valuable day getting him out (they were time crunched).

    I put that room in a campaign some time after, they brought them out and gave them the hero's burial they deserved.

    I'm telling you guys, this was no "LOL I GET DRUNK!" campaign. It was a very serious adventure, with a lot of thought put into it from everyone.

    Most of my character deaths have been to other players.

    One time I was killed by the party assassin for noticing him kill someone else. Another time I was killed by the party rogue so he could become an assassin. So I'm not a big fan of assassins.

    There was one time where my party was fighting six balors. We hit them all with spells to weaken them, and then killed a few of them off with regular attacks. Then the DM pointed out that balors explode when they die. The first two explosions killed off another balor, which killed the remaining three. TPK.

    I was once trapped in a similar box with a wizard.

    As part of our quest to destroy a cabal of high level liches I had been researching lichdom heavily and had by that point figured out a way to make myself a lich and after waiting for my party to free me (they never did, were were split into two groups and the other two in my group got teleported half way around the world in another trap.) I turned myself into a lich.

    .......I remained trapped in that room for two hundred years before some adventurers accidentally broke me out. By that point I was half mad AND a lich.

    I had a Human Town Guard once that would go weekly and play a fantasy board game with other guardsmen and friends. One session, as they called it, one of the other townsfolk attending had brought some new polyhedrals (which they used as random outcome generators of sorts).

    Turns out the gypsy he had bartered them from in the tavern had passed onto him some heavily cursed stones. It transported everyone playing into the world of their game, and as they quickly found out, if you came under harm in the game, you came under harm in real life.

    While they were trying to get out the real world town was besieged by a wandering horde of nomadic goblin warriors and their lifeless bodies around the table were killed.

    Had a pacfist force adept with battle mind/battle meditation, and a few other feats that allowed him to extended his sensory range in the force; along with give large groups of peoples benfits. The party had been treating him very badly for 6 sessions because of his naivaty and beliefs of the force and human nature. It was held during the Mandolorian war and he had just witnessed 3 worlds being bombed by the Mandoes. Early in the day he had a discussion with a Jedi in the party about using the force to protect people. His pacifistic roots were tested yet again when the planet the party was going to invstigate for some dark side artifact had 3 mandalorian captial class ship orbitting and ready to deploy for war. He had enough and could feel the suffering and fear of those of the planet underneath him. So he looked himself in the room and used dominate mind to control every mando on those three ships and order them to fly directly into the sun. I used a force point to boost the role and every ship began flying towards this blue dwarf star. The party didn't realize what was going on until it was almost too late. As the jedi on board was using up his vitality in a failed attempt to force push the ship into a different orbit. My character was draining his life force to continue his control over all of these people. The jedi realized that the power was coming from his ship and stormed into my characters room, cutting down the door. He asked "what are you doing?!?!?!" my character in a trance responded "Becoming the new God of peace" The Jedi cut his head off in a single blow, saving one of the three ships.

    Or even better; a Tyler Durden.
    There was actually a way out but the Lich's shizophrenic mind has kept him from noticing it while Larry is actually him conquering the land and fucking over the party.
    Imagine their faces when they enter the last crypt in the BBEG's fortress of doom to find him greeting them gleefully as his saviours.

    Then they possibly befriend him just to find out he is their enemy but he is also not.
    Fucking quantum lich!

    >Day 36525: Today is my hundredth year since I first entered this room. I decided that I would turn over a new leaf and wrote heart felt letters to both Nerva and Sonya telling them that I have finally forgiven them for leaving me in the place all those years ago. Nerva, that bastard half-elf (I am not being spiteful, he was born out of wedlock), is probably still alive. Full figured Sonya is sadly most likely deceased as she would be 124 and I seem to recall we humans don't usually live that long. Still, felt good to relieve myself of that anger. Can't seem to find the post office though.

    Not me, but I was running a weird session of Call of Cthulhu.It ended up becoming Call of Tarantino. My party was basically split into two separate groups, Vincent the back alley surgeon, and John Okwon, legendary Jazz Pianist,along with Vince's cousin Vincenzo,versus A guy in the Amish mafia, and an Asian Painter. With the criminal goons was an engineer, and a dilettante as hostages.

    The party was fleeing from Innsmouth, since they committed some crimes in Arkham, and thought going there would be a good idea(it never is), and as soon as they got there, they accidentally shot an Innsmouthian. So they're running along the beaches, when the Mafia goons realize that they're going too slow, so they have to trust their hostages to walk unhindered.

    John Okwon pulls out a golden brick he got from a previous adventure, and talks about the point of no return. Either he was going to cooperate, or he would die. The engineer tried to resist, so Okwon beat his face in with a brick, and tore off his face in an opium induced rage.

    This is fucking impressive.

    The only way to free yourself from a trapped room is to create an imaginary character so vivid and realistic, that character actually materializes in the real world and then opens the door to the room from the outside... Because the trapped room is actually a magically enchanted room for young wizards to study/practice trying to astral project or telekinesis their way out of the room.

    I had my barbarian brazenly insult a powerful dragon in an attempt to provoke it (The damn thing kept calling us worthless insects every time we did something for it, and basically being a complete tool. My barbarian knew that if he threw the first punch, the party wouldn't do shit to help him, though.) The dragon immediately cast a spell similar to Command. The order it issued was "Sneeze with your eyes open."

    It didn't kill him, but after much deliberation, the DM and the rest of the party decided that it rendered the barbarian mentally retarded. Or at least, too retarded to try to get the party killed in a similar manner in the future.

    I think your DM and the rest of the party are mentally retarded ones here. Why the hell would they think it would do anything remotely like that?
    And what drugs were they on to even consider the idea that it could be fatal?

    This was back when we were all in high school. I think a week earlier or so the biology teacher said something about how you can't sneeze with your eyes open. When asked why, he just laughed and said that if you tried it your brain would explode.

    The DM was the only one who thought it'd be fatal, though. Everyone else immediately argued that it was a bullshit call. The DM just wouldn't let up on the idea of it being severely disabling, since I was the only one who actually roleplayed and forced him to have his NPCs do something other than either attack us on-sight, or send us to go fetch some magical doodad from a cave full of spiders. It was basically a case of That DM, more or less saying that I was going to have to stop roleplaying my character or else he was going to have the dragon kill us all, castrate our corpses, and use our testicles as throwing weapons against our next characters.

    Trapped in a room with some kind of magic life sapping gas. It would accumulate tallies based on movement and then at some unknown trigger unload the tallies worth of damage on us. We tried via trial and error to figure out what the trigger was and in the process sheathing my sword killed me.

    Glad I managed to find this thread after reading it on sup/tg/.

    I died eating a piece of pie.

    It was a one-shot commoner game where we lived in an idealized Communist society...that got sacked by zergs. We were told by the ghost of Stalin to go underground and bring back food for the survivors. Long story short, pie on a pedestal. I take a piece to test for poisons and what-nots. It's poisoned, but I make my save like a boss (high Con for incarnum feats).

    The old gods reawaken, seeing the first truly selfish act in generations, and use their renewed power to beam me up and make me an exarch. Party immediately tries to kill me before ascension due to my betrayal of Communist manifesto. "Bard" plays Freebird to make our chickens set themselves on fire and suicide rush me, but to no avail.

    Then the chicken-riding MacFeegle critically charges through my chest for over 60 damage (easily triple my max life).

    The old gods are saddened by the loss of their one "worshipper" and end up drowning the world with their bloody tears.

    All because I ate a piece of pie.

    One barbarian on the party had this mangy dog called "Dog". One day the dog dies and to honor his best friend, the barbarian went into a berserker rage and raped all the female dogs of the village, killing then in the process. My character was at the moment transformed on a dog by a magical accident.

    Being on fire, then falling into a pit of poisoned stakes, climbing out, only to fall into another pit of poisoned stakes (while still on fire), putting the fire out to only get set on fire again and then to fall into another pit of poisoned stakes and die.

    NO ONE ELSE IN THAT ENCOUNTER WAS WOUNDED. we wasted all our healing on me and i still wasted it, i could not make a save, to save my life.

    Forever Ulric the bumbling paladin will be remembered for his ability to find pit traps.
