What are the ways in which you die to PCs?
« on: January 29, 2018, 09:50:32 AM »
Me:

1. Templar ordering soldiers to cut my character down.

2. Death by arrow.

3. Death by arrow.

4. Chopped down by a Tuluki dwarf in the battle of the flying volcano.

1. Peraine'd by steak found lying around on the road. Found by noble and her minions. Get blamed for noble passing out, get murderized after lengthy discussion by the minions.

2. Someone practicing backstabbing in the rinth on my brand-new PC. Thought it was an NPC until I read my account notes.

3. Absolutely awesome but too recent.  Someone made sure that I had a good time, and absolutely sure that my character would end up dead.
A rusty brown kank explodes into little bits.

Someone says, out of character:
     "I had to fix something in this zone.. YOU WEREN'T HERE 2 minutes ago :)"

This is kind of fun.  Turns out I die a lot to PCs.

1. Invited over for a threesome.  Apartment murdered by the jealous boyfriend whilst en flagrante with the girlfriend.  (Only murder where both me and the murderer were buck naked.)

2. Told to "kill that elf" in the rinth by another elf.  I tried.

3. 0day PC volunteered to fight in the Arena against the Corporal in the Arm for a large.  Two-shotted.

4. Murdered in the rinth by some sort of shadow gick.

5. Invited by His Arm back to the jails to help in their investigation into rumors of a raider.
 Accused of smuggling and murdered.

6. Invited to a friend's apartment to help sort leaves.  Friend declares there is a bounty on my head and murderizes me.

7. Harrassed an aide to a templar on my SR by telling her stories of our people over the way. Non-stop.  Busted while drunk in Allanak by the AoD.  Fell flat on my face.  Unable to speak sirihish, and failed my interview check in the interview room at the jails.  Killed by soldiers.

8. Failed an unlatch check on an urn held by a strange PC, grabbed by guards, hauled off to jail.  Epic interview, accused of being the main Guild boss and executed after the templar found my bribe of a single rat meat pie unsatisfactory.

9. Lured into a trap in the alleys.  Heramide knife to the face, revenge slaying by some sort of gick.

10. Heramide arrow to the neck by an ashlayer.

Noble Themed Ones:

1. Drawn into Borsail estate by loving cousin and the insistence of senior nobles to give an apology for kicking some spoiled rich kid out of the Tor Academy.
2. Told by a Borsail noble that if my PC didn't come see him in the Borsail estate that he'd kill them. He killed my PC in his personal bedroom for some reason.
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

The times I can remember:

- Chased after some kidnapped girl into the 'rinth as a militia recruit. Got killed after I freaked out after being attacked and try to run away.
- Templar'd.
- Templar'd while linkdead.
- Templar'd again.
Modern concepts of fair trials and justice are simply nonexistent in Zalanthas. If you are accused, you are guilty until someone important decides you might be useful. It doesn't really matter if you did it or not.

Making a deal to have a Byn sergeant Assassinated, meets someone in a Redstorm apartment.  Perrained and dead.

Had an elf get the plague and go to the Viv temple to be cured, waiting in there is a half giant who tells my elf to stay away from him.  Elf says "I had a cousin that was stupid like you".  Bashed one shotted.

I haven't had a whole lot of really good pk deaths. Here's the two I liked the best though:

1. Fireballed to death by a Templar outside of Red Storm. Glorious death.

2. Attacked a rogue gick on the side of a cliff and we both fell. He got up before I did and ended me. Craziest, riskiest thing I ever did with a character and it NEARLY paid off. :)

Oh, fun.

1. Stalked a known pychopathic half-giant that was after her Rinth boss.  One/two stab pierces in the dark was unsuccessful as a guerrilla tactic.
2. "Liberated" a stump's mount while he was fighting oxen. He got mad.
3. A half-giant in the Arena yelling about the Highlord in the Arena got under my PC's skin. Using the first obscene word in my hearing ever, (for her) , she said  "F*** the Highlord," in good northern sirihish. Unanimously voted to death.

Since then, it's been back to beasties and soldiers ringing my ding.

Too many individual events to mention. Beaten to death, backstabbed, poisoned, Magicked (directly), Magicked (indirectly), ambushed, pushed in a hole/well, left behind in a dangerous place, stretched apart and whipped to death but I think the most perplexing deaths has been when my characters were lied about and set up to take the fall for other PCs. Most of these also can be combined.

1. Nooblar'd
2. Northern Templar wanted to show off kung-fu, missed me, one-shotted by his 50 day HG bodyguard instead
3. Throat slit on my serial killer Vivaduan by BadSkeelz
4. Sap'd by some guy who "shifted uncomfortably" when I revealed was a magicker. Deserved it.
5. One-eyed Byn Sergeant left mercy off in sparring
6. Thrown out of Tuluk with sun tattoo on my forehead, thrown in the Arena for in Allanak for giving up a Byn Sergeant's name in Tuluki interrogation cells
7. My hilarious-strength gith got killed by twinky d-elves, unremarkable

Hehehe, #4.

This happened about a year ago and I'm not sure everyone is dead so I'll leave out some names ...

A certain noble was going to pay me to enslave any rogue gicks for him. I had negotiated this through his aide.

So one night I sapped out an elf gick in the street and the guy is laying unconscious in the street. I call the aide via the Way that I got one for them and the aide and the noble show up at a dead run with their house guards.

The noble says they don't pay for ELVES. So for about five minutes the aide and I are arguing about it until the noble loses their temper and yells at us to stop. Meanwhile the elf has regained consciousness and jumps up, bare-ass naked because I stripped them of everything, and TAKES OFF RUNNING down the street.

So I look east where the elf ran, and the aide looks east, and the noble looks east, and then the noble says, completely deadpan, "They're getting away."

I haven't had a lot of Arm moments where I had to step away from the keyboard because I was laughing so hard, but that was one of them. :)

1.Fell into the hole north of Allanak while out riding and miraculously survived the fall, but nearly starved. Surprisingly, I was found and led out by a Red Fang member, who also managed to get my mount off a ledge, and taken back to the city. I joined the Byn, had many crazy adventures and then years later... auto-followed someone over the edge and fell back down into the same damn hole and this time died.

2. Got dragged up to the top of some building, I think in the Gemmed quarter, and dropped, over and over, on the order of a  Templar. Think I was healed in between drops. Survived one drop without being knocked out. Managed to hobble off and hide. Freedom! But no, because I trusted someone a week later who said they'd help me get out of the city and instead they turned me over to the same Templar who had me cuddled. Fun Times!

(eta: I know following someone into the hole isn't exactly pk, but it sort of is, or was.)

It's got to be either ambush or a closed room kill. Ambush meaning sap or backstab, closed room meaning anywhere you can guard the exit out. Guard as in they can't open a door or curtain or rock or whatever the closable entrance is.

You CAN kill people out in the street or the wilds but there generally has to be a large power disparity for that to happen. Any real combatant is going have a good enough defense to get away before you can beat them to death and the skill to know when to run.

Traveled solo to Red Storm with my special-app teenage mutant ninja turtle (so proud of her gem! so certain that she would gloriously kill a northern templar someday). Met a mysterious friendly woman who walked me around the marketplace for 45 minutes helping me sell my scavenged stuff. She had some kind of super interesting business she wanted my help with, so we...

...yeah, I followed a Nilazi into a locked apartment.

Kudos to Fathi for an inspiring death.

I don't think I even had a weapon.

I could have attempted to kill Torgun once but I got skeered.


Executed by Byn Sarge once.

Had the misfortune of accidentally having to kill a soldier NPC in Tuluk due to hunger meaning I couldn't flee.  ::) Eventually got psi templar ganked.

Celf warrior kept running in and bashing me in front of guild npcs westside then running out when the npcs aggroed before running back in and bashing me again on my new assassin, while saying "fuck you" over and over in lower case no punctuation, only death that made me actually laugh out loud at the ridiculousness.

Idiot soldier used combat command during whipping scene once causing HG gank.

Best friend killed me while unconscious once.

Gith got terradinned by a SR dressed as gith, took 15 minutes to die. Good times though.

Dwarf got instablasted by SR fireballs.

Think that is it. :) So about 16% of my deaths are PK. I appreciate not dying to NPCs or falling asleep at my keyboard most of the time.

I have indirectly caused pcs to be killed by other pcs, pretty much by virtue of being alive. I suppose I could have been less involved in their deaths, though.

The latest time was about more than a year ago when I handed an elf that was dying of thirst an empty waterskin by accident.

'The' mantis (There used to be a VERY special mantis out there in the north....)

An emo avatar of crazy sorcerous powers (maybe drov or nilaz I don't remember) - Snooped said being's tower too much looking for someone else.

Winrothol house purge - Yup. Probably a lot like what it sounds like.

Gank on the north road - My vivaduan dragon thrall was surprised to see a large number of soldiers come through a nilaz portal together.

Killed in the dragon sworn camp - I had a dragon thrall mage helping construct a certain place with a bunch of shady shit going on, and I went into a place i wasn't supposed to apparently to ask for water but saw a PC apparently I wasn't supposed to so they just murdered me.

Copper wars / Kazar - My boy spammed directions too fast for me to re-mount when we saw a bunch of Tuluki soldiers coming, so I got to watch and wait while they rolled up on me because I wasn't mounted for our flight back west (the others kept going without me). Humiliated the first guy that engaged me then got the spam death.

I have only had maybe two righteous deaths to PK. One a legit betrayal on the north road span...pretty badass.
Other then those it has been, Newplar....Um...Newplar....keyword error and...I think that is it.

 I was just looking at some old bios. Ten years ago I played a rinthi Half-Giant that ended up thrown in the arena after being deceived by a bunch of elves that he though were his best friends. That was probably the most enjoyable PKish death I've had.

I had another arena death in 2008, an escaped mul that was recaptured, games were hosted to promote selling him off, but he died in a training accident in between.

15 or more years ago, one of my first characters, a t'zai byn dwarf that spoke in the newb scottish accent died when he attacked a PC templar outside the Trader's Inn over some small argument.

I attacked a templar with at least one other dwarf and was handily killed.

A notable one was when Mansa poisoned my Borsaili Mul, he was playing a Blackmoon spy in Borsail's ranks.

I've been fireballed, teleported then murderd, magickally paralyzed and killed at least twice, arrowed, gang beaten (I've played a lot of solo outlaws with bad judgement over the years), HG bash-killed, backstabbed, and tortured to death.

PvP is the most thrilling part of this game, and the most dramatic rp you can get.

I was reviewing my character notes to remember who died to what and I stumbled onto this email from Morgenes. I am ... so so proud of myself.


In reviewing the logs we noticed that you (as Avell) have been giving the Giant's Fist host the name 'BerklovesTuluk' as your name. Please refrain from doing this as it is silly and breaks immersion. It would be the same as giving names like 'SeymourButts'. This has been noted on your account, but no other change has taken place.

Thats an amusing, if pretty silly thing to have on your notes.

I once fell from a roof, and got knocked out, as you do. Then, a minute or so left to go on my stun timer a dude stole my boots, emoted it out a teeny bit then stabbed my face in or something. I was so salty at that I stopped playing for a little bit.
