Most anti-climactic death?
« on: June 18, 2017, 07:26:26 am »

Simple enough, really. What's the most anti-climactic adventurer death you've ever had? Mine was going to wrestle a sturgeon with my high master wrestler, immediately getting my lower body bitten through all my armor, shaken around once and then I didn't have a spine. I'd trained wrestling ON sturgeons prior with no real injuries at all because they mostly just failed to do anything, but I guess I found that one badass fish.

I once died chasing a fish off a waterfall.

Once battled a guard on a staircase where he was above me. After i killed him his loincloth came crashing down, caving in my skull and killing me on the spot. So... yeah.
Been a while ago, luckily skulls are a bit sturdier since then.

Yeah, something similar happened to one of my guys back in v.34. Wasn't a fight, though. Instead, one of my companions fell on my adventurer while we explored a keep. Cue fatal heart, lung, and intestinal injuries.

Also back in version .34, I lost an adventure after raiding a cave full of night creatures. Cause of death? Starvation... due to being unable to bypass the campfire I'd lit in the cave's mouth.

Any death by bogeymen, really unfun to have a really intresting adventure go on then suddenly "YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY INCESSANT CACLKING" and then the adventurer dies because you didnt adventure with anyone even if they are fully armored or whatnot

It was both the most anti-climatic, and the most poetic... I was a vampire swordsman, going around the land killing lords and ladies, and finally I found the leader of the civ I was within, a king since I added them to the humans. Walked up to him, had a nice conversation, learned someone had murdered his brother, with a name oddly like mine... Walked over to the guards and started fighting them with my fists, crushing skulls and chests. Drew my sword for those in attendance, and took out those nobles, before starting on the king. He accepted my offered mug of my blood, and took in the vampire taint, and as he turned I decapitated him. I saw a noble come up the stairs, and went to finish him off. Suddenly, he whips out a knife and cuts my head clean off. I checked legends mode. This fish cleaner was also the king's son. This vampire had killed a demon, fought half a vault, wrestled a giant, solo'd a hydra, one-shotted a giant rhino, and slain hundreds of humans, mostly guards. And a man wielding a knife and vengeance was what it took.

Not adventure mode, but I had a dwarf named Minkot Isakkonos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCBWYXDrBLI&t=9m58s who died of dehydration right beside a pond. Her arms and leg were fractured but she was operating the screw pump, and covered in floodwater. And then she dehydrated, and like 30 dwarves just walked past her as she lay in the puddle, begging for someone to bring her water.

Not my character, but an NPC. I was fighting a modded creature called a "Dark Master" that was posing as the Lady of a depopulated hamlet, which breathes dragonfire and is extremely strong and fast. It was murderating me as would be expected, but no limbs had been severed. Then she grabbed me and did a jump throw. I was tossed into the air, skidded around on the ground and broke a leg... she threw herself as well, and decapitated herself and lost an arm and a leg. I then became lord of the hamlet.

I retired a successful legendary adventurer and he died in a block of ice. Those rivers are out to get us!

This just happened to me: I was finishing up defensive training for my new Adv. mode character. He was already a Legendary Armor user, but I wanted to get him up to Legendary+ Shield User and Dodger before venturing out in earnest.

Towards that end, I found a family of otters in the forest. I got on the ground and crept up behind them, then used my arms and legs to wrestle three of them at once so that they couldn't escape. I then tapped each one using a +birchen training axe+ to set them into a rage so that they'd attack me. I then just sat there and waited.

The plan worked brilliantly. Most of the attacks were blocked by the shield, and the ones that weren't were misses because my dodging was so good. Eventually, my character started to get Tired, but that was okay. When my character became over-exerted, I was about to let go and crawl away, but I was so, so close to Legendary in shield user that I figured another minute wouldn't hurt.

I was wrong. My character passed out, and without the presence of mind to actively push the family of otters off, they gnawed my character to death, steel armor notwithstanding. I felt dumb.

That's probably what I deserve for cheesing combat training by wrestling small woodland creatures.

And thus began the tale of the Otterman Empire.

I became thirsty while crossing a glacier, so I lit a fire to melt some ice I had in my waterskin.

When the glacier turned to water beneath my feet and swiftly froze again, I realized I might have melted a bit more than was necessary.
