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..

Armageddon is best when it's actually harsh and brutal, not when we're only pretending that it is.

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.  :'(

This is why I (almost) always type "lo <direction>".

Granper my dirty old man character got killed being escorted by the brand new Kurac fist sergeant..

Also I joined the Borsail Wyverns and our sergeant took us north and I knew the place they took us would end badly but I didn't know IC so we all died.. lol

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.
Playing something new could be just what you need!

See a shadow.

Assume it's a hidden rat.

Attack.

Find out it's a soldier.

You attack an extremely short strange shadow.

The minuscule dwarven soldier says, in sirihish:
  "Militia! To me!"

My lamest death?  Baisically I was playing really late at night on my phone in bed and I fell asleep for an hour or two. I woke up to see my character was starving and I started to freak out.

My noob brain: eat dung to stay tided over until I get to a tavern.

*your stomach roils and you cry out in pain, convulsing*
Beeep

I have walked two characters into the same deadly hole just because I either miscounted rooms or turned my head to talk to someone just for a second.  One time it was a hugely pregnant character in front of her tiny tribe.  Fun times!
Too gay to function since the early 2000s.
I do writing.

I had a merchant character waiting in the desert for their stamina to go up (it was close to 0). A "red beaked vulture" entered the room, and being bored of waiting for my character to rest I decided to attack it. Turns out merchants are really, really bad at combat. Cue 30 minutes of misses by both of us and me being pecked to death as I couldn't flee.

I had a merchant character in the Byn and like after the first in game month, there was a RPT, she got killed by the gith and died before getting back.
