The #RPGaDAY prompt was concocted by Dave Chapman of Autocratik. Grab the list and join in!
Lucky day thirteen of #RPGaDAY brings us to the happy topic of dead characters. Carrion Crown had a slew of memorable character deaths and maulings, thanks to Hunter’s merciless cleaving to the unswayed justice of the die. Three stand out in particular in my mind:
- Callimachi, attempting to be the stealthy scout of the party, explored some corner of a fortification the creepiest, darkest mountains of Ustalav and took a point blank banshee shriek to the face. Save or lose an excessive number of hit points. Hit points: lost!
- Solis the elven summoner got caught on the wrong side of one of Thadeamus’ walls, as I recall, leaving him to fight a big bad alone. That big bad opted to employ a suffocation effect — in a whirlwind? — and it ended poorly for Solis.
- Horace Gunderson was the first of the Carrion crew to fall. Exploring the acid factory of Vorkstag and Grine, he was mauled horribly by a golem hound. And, interestingly, Horace was the only adventurer in that campaign who opted to stay dead.
