Less than an hour after drinking of my enemies' blood to quench my dehydration, I set out to find water.

I found it and tried to fill my canteen. I succeeded, getting a much-needed drink and then killing a coyote(and, as customary, drinking of it's blood). Then I set out to slay the were-beast that terrorized the lands, sure of my success as the sun rose--

Armok curse it I fell into the river, off a waterfall and drowned.

I mean, it's not really that hard, is it? Anyone can wield a torch, it doesn't prove anything. Wearing flaming clothes on the other hand, or better yet, wearing nothing at all and being on fire... that is the essence of dwarfish behavior."

Not terribly interesting, but after finishing my character's first quest (slayed vampire) and building up some local renown I decided I'd take my 2 adventure buddies and try out some bandits.

I make it to the camp and didn't think to sneak, walk up a slope and get a cannon ball to my ankle which shatters it *Lost ability to walk* so I decide to crawl away back to the last town I left from then crawl all the way back to her hometown and retire..

I'm hoping of meeting her with a future player....also wanted to see what the lore for her looked like in legends mode.

Every time one of my adventurers joints has been shattered, I always died from the dozens of enemies that could now catch up to me.

But from my experience of twisting werebeasts into pretzels while they are in human/dwarf/other form, I figured joints would recover since leaving the peasant alive and waiting one hour results in all their joints being yellow and them walking around again just fine.

a while ago i was swarmed by a large amount of doe rabbits, one biting into my throat and i bled out on the floor with the others nibbling my legs and everything else. I thought this was a bug so i tested it again in the object arena on an elephant, the elephant was asphixiated by around 30 rabbits hanging from the elephants neck. I was like OMG at the time.

Pushed in the head by a giant slug. I didn't have a helmet.

Skull kicked through brain by an ostrich. Should have known better than trying to wrestle one.  :P

I had this one adventurer who had a sweet kill list, fully armored in iron or better, and was a necromancer with an army with hydras, ettins, giants, and a dragon. While trying to reach the edge of the world I encounter a army of Kobolds. my Zombies set to work, but their numbers and arrows prove more then capable of overcoming my zombie horde and eventually rendered me unconscious.

A neat survival story though is I jumped off a cliff over a river, cause I was feeling lazy and didn't realize how far it would be. At the time I didn't know that falling onto water could be fatal. I watch myself plummet down, down, down only to see myself land on a freaking Otter. The otter breaks many bones and is instantly killed, I however receive almost no injuries, as I was in full plate, and swim on to kill his other otter brothers.

I unexpectantly transformed into a weregoanna (did not know I was infected) in the middle of a market, instantly causing a boning knife to be lodged in my cranium before I could react.
