Worst deaths?
« on: August 20, 2020, 06:40:50 AM »
We've all had our fair share of very bad deaths and the purpose of this thread is to share them so that you can make others feel better about their own.

One of mine: Was impatient resting as a city elf walking in the wilderness because "I was so close" and then got jumped by things that could easily kill me and I didn't have the stamina to escape.

I had enough deaths in the wilds due to running out of stamina. I think those are the worst deaths for me.

Walking one room out of Red Storm in the days of dial-up internet.  Someone picking up the phone downstairs, my connection dropping, and logging back in to the mantis head, having been eaten by a beetle...within touching distance of safety.

The lamest was one which I strongly suspect involved OOC collusion and intentional griefing, but can't prove.  That stuff sucks...wasn't the worst (dial-up beetle won that!), but certainly the lamest.
Previous of note: Kaevya the blind Tor Scorpion, Kaloraynai 'Raynai' the beetle Ruk, Korenyire of SLK, Koal 'Kick' the hooved Whiran, Kocadici/Dici/Glimmer, Koefaxine the giant Oashi 'Aide', Kosmia 'Grit' the rinthi
Current: Like I'd tell you.

15 or so days played Byn Trooper. First moments of sewer contract. Open slab. D. Fall. Splat. Mantis head.

I have also been killed by my own mount a dozen or so times.
We were somewhere near the Shield Wall, on the edge of the Red Desert, when the drugs began to take hold...

Oh...if we're talking first characters...my first ever character was killed for their newbie coin.  Someone was helping me learn commands in the Gaj, suggested I go to their room to avoid spamming other players with the OOC command...door shut, door locked, combat started, they say 'Welcome to Armageddon', first character dead.

I am rather glad that level of dimwitted douchebaggery doesn't seem to happen anymore. :-\

Ha, my first death was bad. I finally learnt how to leave and saw a scrab and was like, cool! A little crab! I didn't know how to look at things or fight. So it was just pinching me and I didn't know what was happening..

Other than that.. Was killed in an apartment for being a 'cunt'. I did not like that death for...other reasons. Uppity women really don't live long, hm? ;)

[had to strikeout the word roleplay because you can't really roleplay mid-mount death. Which is fine, dying to your own domesticated beast is ludicrous and I wouldn't want to roleplay it even if allowed.]

I didn't know there were things that would kill me in 'blank' and died within 20 or so minutes of a special app-ed character's creation. I was pretty pissed that I was so dumb about it too. Like I should have known. Ah well, it was only a special app..  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Actually my special apps tends to be my most short lived characters..  :-[

Not sure if this is a "worst death" or not.  But my favorite stupid death was as a new ranger (and my first time as a ranger) typing mount carru trying to tame myself a mount.  It wasn't hostile until that point.
When we found her Marnlee mornin',
Hoofprints walking up her back
There were empties by her war braids
And sixty-five dead carru in a stack.

My very first character joined the Byn. A few days later, the Sarge took a bunch of Runners out on a ride. Mid-ride, the long-lived Ranger PC says "Woah. Don't go south.". Being the curious little newboots that I was, I wanted to l s to see what all the fuss was. Instead, I typed ; s and was rewarded with 0.5 seconds of wondering why I was in a new room, followed by two pages of text and a mantis head.

I still wonder what the rest of the byn must have thought.

I've experienced similar situations a few times in the Byn. It was mostly an eyeroll "Runners" and ride on situations.

I remember this one time Byn assembled a group to help AoD against some bugs in the wild. As people were gathering at the gates, one of the runners tosses a knife at an AoD Sargeant in front of bunch of AoD and a templar.

He insta dies ofcourse. The templar quirks their brow at Byn Sargeant. The Byn Sargeant just shrugs to the templar and orders aba and patch removed from the corpse. The templar doesn't even say anything. We just ride on. It was hilarious AF.

I remember recruiting this Half elf girl. And IMMEDIATELY taking her out on a contract. Right as we go into this gith hole I tell her "Remember your training, and you'll be fine." and she goes "I have no training." Then she died

My favourite and perhaps most ambitious character, Lii*, had a long and troubled existence as a near-mute** DID-afflicted*** Bynner with PTSD. She was a reflection of everything awful and fearful in me (not saying those things are shameful or awful, just that SHE was, starting out), but I didn't make her just depressed or anything dumb like that, I made her resilient and want to survive by any means necessary. She was working her way up the ladder and had just become First Trooper, mapmaker, and master medic, having pioneered the cures for everything (of the commonly known taints) but terradin and heramide at the turn of the new cure code, when everyone was still clueless and you could no longer just mash two seeds together as anyone. She had just had a near death experience with a criminal****, and was feeling unsure of herself and wanted to prove her worth and ability by finalising the curelist with the last two cures and finalising the Byn pathway map between Allanak and Morin's. Her lover and Sergeant, Gore/Gauril, told her to not test the Terradin cures alone because, yknow, duh - but she was really confident because she just got a very very good tip from a trusted medic about a possible cure combination. So she poisoned herself with Terradin. The cure didn't work. She tried the backup cure, which I later learned on another character WAS the correct combination, but it also didn't work (perhaps due to how recent the other cure was taken, and there being a code about processing cures or something). I checked who - 12 players. Nobody in the compound. So I just emoted some resignation of her fate, played solo into it being alright due to her more recent contemplations over mortality and self, then... Snap.

Awful, preventable, stupid death - and one I cried over IRL for daaaays. But it made sense for her story to just... Let it happen.

Gore was so sad over this. Lii was part of the reason playing that Byn Sergeant was so fun, honestly.

Posted this one before but.....

Like 40 day played half-giant warrior beats on dujats at the silt sea for fun.  Beat one up, skin it, mount up....partner asks a questions and I answer.

Then I don't recognize that my fingers aren't on the home row and type "w"....which turns out to be "s" into deep silt.

Nearly forgot this one.  Mantis invasion into the Red and I'm on the way to Nak with a different 40 day half-giant (ranger this time) and some guy says "Let's go clean up on all the stuff."  So I go and decide to check out a {redacted location} along the way (before the toss command).  Yes, six or so mantis waiting for me.  I yell for help, look outside and both the other guy and my mount are gone.

Lii's death made me sad to read about in the rumor topic the next time I joined the Byn. I'd had a character in the Byn for her run, but not when it happened.

It was especially sad that like right after was Gore just sort of, breaking down, handing in his Sergeant patch and just... leaving. If I remember right.

One of my first characters, a Kuraci elf who'd made Sergeant and gained access to a unique fighting style that a certain yellow mul's player had created and gotten scripted, who'd survived a long run home fighting oddles of gith and other cool things, died one hot day to the thirst code, because I played too much and fell asleep at the keyboard outside in the fort.

Without doubt, my worst death.

I can't think of any other death that I was completely disappointed with, although when my Tor Noble died I really lost a drive to play for several years, but that was probably due more to being a grownup and being forced to do admit how much time I spent playing.

I used to whine about deaths a lot because my characters die a lot. I have so many bad deaths, I am going to give you my best worst death.

My character, a sponsored role who magically managed to piss off every clan in the game within a week of me playing this character, is sitting in the Gaj. A room echo issues about a certain famed Gladiator entering the Gaj and crowds of people flooding in with the procession, and I think, "Oh fun, an animation, staff are around."

SCHLUCK. My character gets stabbed in the back, right then, while sitting in the middle of the Gaj. She falls over dying right in front of said Gladiator. Mantis Head.

I have never played a leader role since.

Years-old character. Just finished a bunch of back-and-forth-ing with staff about how to proceed after a major life change that's too IC to talk about to this day. It was an awkward couple RL months of transition but I finally felt like I knew who my character was again, and was ready to pull a bunch of PCs into some newly-hatched plots. It was a promising new era.

Suddenly: abrupt PK that never would have landed if it weren't for a lot of OOC factors coming together to doom me ICly. Including, on stage left, the character who wayed me for help when I was about to log off, going linkdead right after I'd arrived to help them instead of staying to hide somewhere smart (because I'd been hugely downgraded in coded punchiness).

I stayed online and behaved how my character would behave, IC to the bitter end, so I can be proud of that at least.

I lost a very long lived, rather well respected Guild Leader to exactly this, only not the shield wall. And I alt-tabbed because someone at work needed to talk so I was off screen for long enough to be dead.

For a long time afterwards, nobody believed thats how he died.

I'm a stupid piece of shit.

Theres a spot in the upper lower red, FOIC HAHA, that isn't really notable. It's a room that leads up the side of a cliff. So you go east, but you slowly start going up and up till you are at the top of the cliff. There's like two areas like this and both are hard to just run into.

Anyway it was tremendous sandstorm and I couldn't see, and I wanted Dsense fails. I also lived in the -Redacted- on the East side so I was heading east.
I had gotten lost in /JUST SUCH/ a way that I wound up going up the cliffs. And wound up falling off and koing.

There are -Not so tough but redacted npcs- that live down there, like 1-2. I kill them all the time cause fuck em.
There was a reboot that hour.

It killed me while KO'd.

Was salty about that for a bit but this was the first death, that was super shitty, that I took in stride.

I was playing a Kadian Merchant named Valentine who started right after Sharlo Kadius was killed.

I spent the first fifty hours or so delivering / cleaning up relationships that had soured under Sharlo.  I even delivered a kiyet rug to the Jihaen Elithian, of which he said "it really ties the room together."  Apparently Elithian was waiting on this delivery for a couple years in game.


So, the first trip I make south from Tuluk to Allanak in the wagon, I meet up with the other Kadian member there, and we take the wagon for a spin.  For some reason, I decide to leave the wagon and walk north.  I guess I forgot what room I leave into.

"stop, criminal, Spice!"
"beep"


(this is before nosave arrest was a thing)

..I was just getting things back on track...   alas.

Three worst I can think of:

Way back in the days of old Tuluk, I played one of the senior servants in House Reynolte; his title was Chancellor.  We had a big RPT where I think Precentors Kul and Isar both showed up and had a fight in the Reynolte courtyard.  Afterwards I took my PC into his bedroom in the estate, locked the door, and went AFK for under 5 mins to use the restroom.  I returned to the Mantis Head and a clear buffer.  To this day I have no idea how he died.

Long ago I special app'd a Lieutenant in House Salarr who was supposed to head up the Expedition Division.  Right around the 3 hour played mark he attended Morning Devotions and then decided to take a short walk just out in front of the city gates, never losing sight of the walls.  Thirst code kicked in and he got severely dehydrated and didn't have the stamina to make it back inside.  He was sat on a dune trying to catch his breath, but dying, and some rinthi grebber girl found him.  She offered to run back to the city and get him some water, but no sooner had she exited the room than he died of thirst.  I felt really lousy for such a stupid death and the time staff had spent setting up the PC.

I played a Nilazi Dune Stalker back during the Dragonsthrall/Echri end of Arm 1.0 stories.  He was the only PC to survive an ill-fated attack on the village of Menos, escaping the clutches of Samos by the skin of his teeth.  A couple days later he went for a casual climb and had a crit fail that made him fall on his neck and die, alone in the desert.

So this is the dumbest death for one of my favorite chars, but it was fitting he went out so ignobly after struggling so hard and achieving a lot (or so I feel as a player). Well  beyond a year and nothing secret here, I played a Sajahain named Torin/Runs-with-Rantarri in the Sun Runners. Super active, long-lived, ran all over the entire world, spent so much time around outsiders he picked up several accents and new languages. He had a quirk where he liked to pick pocket useless shit as trophies. In the Luir's tavern, someone asked him a question, he gave a great answer, and then figured he might as well steal something to make his time worthwhile. I don't remember what it was, but it probably cost like 3 sid. Critical failed, 30 NPCs swarmed him. He survived several rounds and I think one more and my flee would've gone through, died in the tavern. Had some interesting fallout from that for Luir's and the SR!

My worst death I can't even describe in detail because it involves magick IC stuff, but it involves me going AFK to make a sandwich for lunch, "safe" in my apartment as a magicker.

Came back to my desk in 10 minutes to a screen full of attack messages and death by 1000 cuts of 1-2 hp strikes, right as the final one hit me and gave me the mantis head.  Had I come back from sandwich-making 15 seconds sooner, I would have been able to fix it and survive.

Similar. Although I had to pee and it was much much faster.

I totally deserved it, but still. Epic fail potty break.

the moral of the story:
always quit (even quit ooc if you need to) when you're getting up to pee no matter what

would be interesting to see the statistics of what percentage of my quit oocs mention that i'm using the restroom :p

I am usually vague when describing such things.

the emergency is bad chinese food.

I think my worse was the one time I tried playing a half giant. Was going to try being independent with a character for once and built a character to force me to play independently. Wanted to play up north. Due to the starting locations was trying to leave Tuluk(Maybe there was a better starting location, but I don't know  I think they are all in populated areas?). PC sees me. With about zero interaction they attack me and I die. Not sure if they thought I was an NPC or a staff thing. But was super bummed. This was my brief year back in six years or so ago, one of the starting reasons for me taking another break.

I typed up this whole story to do homage to winrothol roleplayers from way back in the day, but its not my #1 so i'll just say: The winrothol guys and gals that played during the 'dwarven Lieutenants' story arc, we got salted hard upon our return home to our clan purge locked in a clan estate.

I think the #1 right outside Allanak. I'm in a cool plot arc with some great roleplayers that've got me logging in, we've been training, plotting. For whatever reason I was kinda chummy with the AoD .... corporal (?) at the time. There was some rogue sorceror that had just fled out the gates. I've got hunt an some combat skills. The corporal sees me tracking and mount up to ride north of the gates.

He goes: "You going aftah him too?"

I go: "Yes, north and i'll bet east."

He says: "Just don't fall into the fucking hole."

And that's how I died not 20 seconds later.

Had a stalker/'gicker of a few days played. Decided to "whisper self" for $roleplay_reasons in the same room as a bahamet.

Reader, whisper breaks hide.

I've mentioned this one before. I dont consider it a 'worst' death. In fact, it's an awesome death. But I do consider it a hilariously stupid death :).


So there is a plot of a Giant Spider infestation inside Allanak. Their nest got pin pointed to a building where a giant Momma Spider lives and its children spiders periodically come out to hunt the denizens of the city. They've recently torn apart a Borsail Noble, alongside countless other commoners.

AoD, Templarate, Byn, Etc are preparing for a massive assault of the building and eradication of the infestation. It'll be happening in one, or two days.

I am playing a Jaxa Pah elf who mimics with a spider as its spiritual animal-esque type thing.

I hirew a drovian to scout out the building.

I hire a Bynner to shoot a bunch of bolts into the wall of the building to create a ladder.

I soak the webbed up windows with oil, readying to ignite it in case shit gets sour.

I prepare a bag full of heramide infused rats.

I climb the ladder and infiltrate the building from the attic.

I find the eggs that I wanted to steal already hatched and decide to kidnap some young. The hope was that I'd be able to create a spider farm in the sewers.

I toss a rat out as bait and when a youngling spider wraps itself around it and sinks it's teeth, I scoop it up in a bag.

The movement causes vibration and the spider and spiderlings begin to roust. I toss the bag full of rats out, causing a bunch of them to fly out.

Chaos ensured, all spiders hunting the rats, but no one is noticing me.

All I needed to do is this

emote With ^me bag rustling as something inside it is stirring, @ pulls &me upward and back out onto the rooftop.

And I'm done. I'm out with a youngling spider in my bag. Ready to become a Spider Farmer.

Instead, I decide to do this

close bag

Which breaks my hide and dozens of spiders insta attack me. I manage to escape with 3 hp and blood burn poison which slowly finishes me off.

The absolutely awesome staffer later on sent me an email with the final emote that followed my death.



In the shifting darkness of your fevered, poisoned dreams, you sense a shadow looming over you, many times the size of even the tallest elf. Something moves in the shadows, enveloping you, its touch as gentle as silk. You feel yourself lifted in the dark, limbs dangling uselessly, but the warm softness of whatever is touching you is unabating.

Gradually, the gentle touch grows tighter, more restrictive, more like binding ropes than a gentle caress. Something jerks at your shoulder, and your eyes flutter open long enough to see the following: a crown of gleaming eyes like jewels, staring into your own with an utterly alien, dark detachment.

This is the face that meets Rena as the last of his consciousness is burned away by poison and liquified by the fangs of a gigantic, mottled-orange spider as it welcomes him back to the shadows.


(OOC: Damn it, I didn't realise the poison would kick in that quickly. I meant to carry on this scene longer and I hope you had fun. Thank you for rolling with the punches so well.)

Heh- Ironically, during the spider infestation I was playing a shady Arm of the Dragon sneaky-assassin private. I was kitted out, decently skilled, and wandering with Sergeant (or Corporal at the time) Torgun and he decided to enter a building in which there might be a ton of hidden spiders, WITHOUT WARNING ME.

I was carrying like 2 bags of armor I had just purchased, randomly, and at heavy encumbrance.

I tripped and Fale down my stairs. Drink milk and you'll grow Uaptal. I know this guy from the state of Tenneshi. This house will go up Borsail tomorrow. I gave my book to him Nenyuk it back again. I hired this guy golfing to Kadius around for a while.
