Lamest Deaths?
« on: October 31, 2018, 11:50:01 AM »
It hurts, oh it hurts.

What are some moments where you made a dumb mistake or fuck-up, which ended up in a lame, "stupid death" for your character?

 My lamest deaths are always passing out/forgetting I logged in while at keyboard/ phone and dying to NPCs or dehydration. I always facepalm myself into a coma when that happens. Have lost many amazing or fun characters this way.

A black beetle once killed me in the Red Storm bazaar. It just kept walking past the guards to get me, and moved quicker than they had time to attack it. Knocked me to -6hp in two hits, and I bled out after it got insta-gibbed when the soldiers caught up ::)

Being PKed by a thrown projectile at less than an hour played back when you couldn't cast at certain tribal tents.

I'm pretty sure I know exactly who did it, too. And even though I love this player, you're still a god damn butthole. <3

On one of my first characters, I was a hunter in Salaar and it was promotion day. Our lead hunter took a group of us out and we were showing what we had learned during our time as recruits. I did not have a firm grasp of how archery worked so when I went to shoot a black beetle in the distance I used beetle as the keyword and I might of miss keyed either direction or distance (this was over ten years ago) But I shot my mount (war beetle) And it promptly one hit me.

Promotion day, beep, welcome to armageddon.

Sitting on a bench at extremely heavy encumbrance.. Get backstabbed and promptly two-rounded into critical. No emote or offer for any sort of RP before typing kill on my critical state. Beep. (jerk)

Grinding out your magick, typing out commands and by chance mixing one up and casting it on yourself... Suddenly you're yuqa-level poisoned and dying by accident... Wish up for help, but none comes. Beep.

My sweet, dumb, fun-loving HG from Tuluk, who didn't use spice,  went through the Allanaki gates with something in her pack that unbeknownst to her (and me) was classified as spice.

Waaaaaaah!!!  She put up a valiant but ultimately futile effort to flee for quite a while.  I was so sad.

Didn't know templars would kill you for having spice?

Don't they try to subdue even if you're wanted for murder? I thought the highlord was atleast, kind of merciful.

This was a long time ago, like 10+ years, and I think spice code has been changed since then.  Also, I believe that the guards attacking with no attempt to subdue might have had something to do with the fact that my PC was not an Allanak citizen.

This is from years ago, when playing in Tuluk.

Out riding my inix to hunt a relatively small, harmless sort of lizard with a relatively new character:

<kill lizard>

You attack a silver-shelled inix!

Mantis head.
I used to have a funny signature, but I felt like no one took me seriously, so it's time to put on my serious face.

Seems like key'ing once before killing if you have time is a good idea.

Whyd lizard redirect to inix though?

1. Key wasn't a command years ago.
2. An inix is a type of lizard, and lizard is/was a keyword for them.

Also re: Medena's HG death: it was a thing that wasn't immediately identifiable as spice, so neither she nor her character knew that's what it was.

Lamest death for me:

Had a burglar out of Red Storm. Back when storms raged both inside and outside the village, sometimes for RL days. I rolled her up during one of those periods. Four days later, and she hadn't left the village. I realized what a stupid idea it was to create her, and tried to kill her off by wandering outside the gates during said tremendous sandstorm.

She wandered til I was out of stamina. So I rested. And nothing killed her. There was no way to log out at the time (quit OOC wasn't a command then) so I just sat there, being frustrated. She started getting hungry. Then thirsty. I couldn't move her, couldn't quit out, and there weren't any baddies. So I just went linkdead. Came back the next day and she was still alive, still starving, still thirsty, still not enough stamina points to move, still no baddies.

I believe I might have had to wish up for a quick death, at that point. The thing that makes it lame: when you are TRYING to get your character killed off and can't succeed.

Because inix are lizards. Especially those that were tamed instead of purchased.

My lamest deaths.

Lamest death ever: I lost internet connection for a day, something about construction in the area cutting a cable, which left my character linkdead on a road in Allanak. When I managed to reconnect the next day I found out he was dead. I put in a request to ask how he died because I've had a couple of linkdead deaths and not knowing is pretty bad. I found out he was PKilled while linkdead :(

Plus little code mistakes that have horrific consequences. Like the one time I tried to drink from a cask of nice clear water on a wagon but 1.cask turned out to be cleaning fluid.

I friend, years ago, sent me a log of his 1 day old PCs death. The death itself is expected, he shouldn't have been there. But even I at the time with a 20 day character would've gotten a little nervous. I don't have the log anymore, but it went something like...

The man arrives from the east, whistling a travelling a tune.

A raptor has arrived from the west.
A raptor has arrived from the west.

A raptor has arrived from the north.

He never even got a chance to emote.

I dont know if it's my lamest, or most hilarious death. But I figured I'll post it anyway. To basically describe it. I had ... six? Demons play ping pong with my unconscious self across the world. Each time I'm echoed "You can't see anything; you're sleeping!", that's my body being hurled through one room towards one entity, or another.

Any time I was hunting and thought I mounted, but typoed and missed it and was killed by scrab, spider, raptor etc...from exhaustion because I was running around without realizing it.

ETA:Yes, this happened enough times for me to say any time, much to my shame. And usually just a few rooms away from a gate.

Did you know that if you go link-dead in a room that's quit-safe, you'll eventually log out?

That doesn't happen if you have a barrier up.

Take a guess.

I think I was a dwarf at the time, or one of my many countless human women, but I'm at the east gate and this elf enters the room, says "Friend" (yep I was a dwarf) and walks up. Turns out he ran too much and was dying of thirst.

I ALWAYS have a full waterskin with me, so I dig into my pack and hand it to him.

"Here you go."

A few seconds pass.

"Its empty."

Dehydration.

Need to rest your mount, so you post up hide and wait... then you get pulled into a RL work call or something that ends up being way more involved than expected and takes over your attention.

Then you remember that you didn't log off a few hours later, come back to your computer and your PC is dead.

Then you consider sending a res request, but your just not that soft. You'd never be able to look at yourself in the mirror the same way ever again.

Snake bite. I was playing a mage and was bit by a snake, I decided to hole up in a cave and try and wait it out. Then, like a fool, I typed 'sleep'. Now my character can't wake up until their stamina is high enough, and my stamina isn't regenerating because I am suffering from poison.

So over the next 40 minutes I got to watch as my HP slowly ticked down to the point I died. If I hadn't tried to sleep, I could have booked it the short distance to Luir's and bought myself a cure.

That one time when there was the Mek that rampaged in the arena and started climbing out only to rake its claws through the crowds and fling us all into the arena with it.  Then "a certain brilliant templar" decides to release gladiator muls to deal with the Mek.  In charge the Muls who assess the situation with their infinite wisdom and promptly decide that my 20 day warrior who's sitting on his ass, unarmed and holding his helmet in his hand is the ultimate threat!  Insta-head-caved-in pissed off moment...

Hitting "n" one too many times in the Labryrinth while at work, only to alt-tab to the Knock-Out blow.

Probably would have survived, too, but there was one buggy NPC that kept attacking (they're designed not to). I woke up, got attacked for big numbers, and spent half an hour bleeding out.

I liked him.

I had a solid Guild affiliated burglar. Things going well. Riots break out. Go southside to watch the fun. Mob NPC attacks. I flee. Run away. Sit to regen enough to sneak away. Mob catches up. Fucking beeeeeeep. :(

I think I was a dwarf at the time, or one of my many countless human women, but I'm at the east gate and this elf enters the room, says "Friend" (yep I was a dwarf) and walks up. Turns out he ran too much and was dying of thirst.

I ALWAYS have a full waterskin with me, so I dig into my pack and hand it to him.

"Here you go."

A few seconds pass.

"Its empty."

*beep*

I dont get it.

The game beeps everyone in the room when someone or something dies.

His joke is that there's nothing wrong with extending an elf a fake lifeline and enjoying watching them die.  :D

Following a musashi PC off the top of a mountain after a friendly little chat.  ::)

We were both Whirans. HIS anti fall damage spell was still active.  ;D

Imho it doesn't get any lamer than 'death to follow code', because there's realistically no way any non-suicidal character would do that... they'd see the cliff and be like, hell no I'm not taking that last step.

I had just made a city elf in the rinth.  I suddenly found scores of bodies on the eastside.  Sold it all, looked around that day and found no one, so I thought I was in the clear after a few hours.  Logged in the next day to sell more stuff and found the culprit: A half-giant sitting at one of the shops.  He grinned.  I grinned back, thinking there might be some rp.  I was dead before I could type "flee".

I'm not a fan of interlopers in the rinth looking for free sparring.  >:(

Honestly, the rinth is the one place in the game where I'm not sure I'm going to be alive tomorrow when I play there. I kind of really like that about the rinth. Every day you stay alive is a win.

I don't mind that there's death in the Rinth, by any means.  It's the idea that some half giant ran amok in there and murdered almost all of the eastern half of it with seemingly no reason.

Many, many day half-giant, post Byn Trooper.  Kills a dujat in a fight that went into the silt.  Skin (salvaging nothing), mount up, wife speaks to me, look over.  Hands not quite on home row.  S instead of E.  Deep silt.

Back when Tembo were scary...I had a 40 day maxed out warrior, get killed by a tembo in two rounds before I could do anything. This was before the Reel code too..

My very first character was a Runner in the Byn. A classic chalton boots, bone studded backpack, I-typed-sleep-and-i-can't-figure-out-how-to-wake-up Runner.

He gets invited out on a ride with two experienced Bynners. One of them says "Woah, don't go south." I decide I want to see this thing that is so scary, so I type "l s", but don't quite press the "l" hard enough.

A brief second of confusion followed by two screens of spiders piling on this newbie Runner.

Beeeeeeep.  :'(

In my early days I would explore and simply get trapped in sandstorms and run out of water. Sitting in blinding sand is thirsty work.

I've had a couple of lame and/or weird deaths of note but they were so long ago, I can't remember.
