A frost troll was charging me when my shouts decided "Nope, not gonna activate right now". My shout was fully charged and all that, it's like the Z key just wasn't working.

I needed to land my aircraft on a mountain for a few scientific tests, so I went to the nearest one and somewhat successfully "landed" (A few non-essential parts might have blown off, like one of the wings, but who cares about those?). I did all the stuff I needed to do and was ready to leave, but then I thought It would be a good idea to explore the place by using my plane as a car. What I didn't knew was that one wing is apparently enough to achieve flight, so as soon as I noticed I was rising I shut down everything, but I was already going too fast and the whole thing blew off as soon as it touched the ground, forcing me to restart and travel thousands of kilometers again. -_-

Mistaken identity. Got my elf torn into a dozen pieces by a half-giant soldier, a human woman and a human guard.

I got myself caught in a dead end with a literal flood of Eastman soldiers and trolls on my tail and no way to escape. Killed many Eastmen and some trolls, but still died.

Turns out you can seriously not notice how deep into this shit you went until you get out.

So I thought I was good.  And I may be okay.  But that is ridiculousness.  I gave it about an hour today, and I never got past seeing the second level miniboss.

I quicksaved before landing on the mun, but I realized too late that I don't have enough fuel to land safely (Being on the dark side of the moon also doesn't help). I've decided to transmit everything I've got and try to save the pilot. I'll need to send a rescue mission.

What did the level 1 high elf mage say to the level 1 metallic yellow centipede? Nothing, he was too busy getting his shit wrecked by a giant bug with too many legs!

My first Mun landing in KSP I had the struts set too high on the lander so it dipped too far down and knocked the thruster off, stranding it on the surface.  They did not make it home.

The best thing is sending a rescue craft, but it itself has too little fuel to leave, so you have to send an even bigger rescue craft to rescue the original strandees and the rescue crew, and that gets stranded too...

On one older version I had 6 rescue craft, all crowded together in the same crater. Thankfully after the second rescuer I realised I should probably have probes pilot them, so the sizes didn't get too ridiculous before I finally got them off the planet.

Small update on my situation: I actually managed to save him. Since I didn't have enough fuel, and I had made my last quicksave too close to the surface to use my jetpack to slow down, I decided to use the strength of my rocket's explosion as it crashed to eject my character in the air. It was a massive success, he flung as far as 134,000kms high. I was then able to slow down enough with my jetpack to land safely.
I decided not to rescue him, instead I'll send him a moon base in which he'll stay in to do science and supervise any future operation. This means that Mun now have it's first permanent resident :)

Tried to design a particularly large spaceplane. After numerous revisions, particularly the positions of the wings, I've found that a center of lift in front of the center of mass causes it to flip over immediately after leaving the runway, and CoL above the CoM pushes it down. I managed to put the CoL below and behind the CoM. The result: The plane crashed so hard the game did.

Or, you could keep send larger and larger rescue craft and eventually end up with a space elevator leading from Kerbin to the Mun.

I wonder, is there any plans in KSP for a space elevator?

I just declared it a Mun colony after team #4

Also here's another death: Made a bomber (was bored) and tried flying like my mini-jet. At least helmets are still super rubber.

To be honest, the kids can barely survive step 1 of Project Traumatise-Children, let alone the "Skinny dipping in magma" Phase of the plan.

We need to perfect the main part of the childcare program before we start going all crazy.

Tried a new rocket design. The thing was so massive it was unable to lift, so instead it decided to break the launchpad and crash. At least one of them survived.
