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 once walked an entire minor merchant house off a cliff, back when you could do such things. I felt so bad...I also laughed for days.
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.
