Peahawk

Game System: D&D Basic- old, red boxed ed.
Occupation: Rogue of little renown
Player: Rick
Gender: Male
Race: Halfling
Date of Birth: unknown
Date of Death: unknown
Place of Death: In the lair of a black dragon

Cause of Death: Peahawk was lost in a maze of tunnels and he accidently stumbled upon a cavern that contained one large, sleeping, black dragon, lying upon a huge pile of glittering treasure. Of course, Peahawk, in all of his infinite wisdom, decided to steal some gold and magic from the beast. The dragon, however, was only pretending to sleep, since he smelled the halfling before Peahawk had even entered the cavern. The dragon lifts his head and tells the little halfling, "You may leave with your life, thief, but first you will drop everything you own and go from this place as naked as the day you were born!" Peahawk only gave the dragon THE FINGER instead, along with a few, choice words. The black dragon replied with a single spit of acid, right between Peahawks eyes!(P-toooey) So much for the last act of defiance....

Epitaph: "A sleeping dragon? No problem-o!"

Occupation: Thief
Player: Rob Muirhead
Gender: Male
Race: Elf
Date of Birth: ????

Place of Death: An abandoned building in a poor, giant-bug plagued town.

Cause of Death: He had just gotten back from teaming up with a sorceror and a warrior to rid the town of the monsterous bug-like creatures that had plagued it. Supposedly there was some treasure in this old abandoned house. They decided to go in and investigate. Finding nothing downstairs, they headed upstairs to see a single door at the end of the hallway. Unfortunately, there was a hole in the floor. Using his wall-climbing skills, he bipassed the hole, helped the others across, and they entered the room. Finding nothing, he kicked a hole in the wall, looking inside. Suddenly a swarm of insects burst out and started attacking the group. The Sorceror, genius that he was, decided to use a fire spell to try and destroy them. It worked, but the house also burst into flames. Trying to escape, the group burst through the door, and fell straight into the hole in the floor. With all their equipment, they were big enough to get stuck wedged into the hole. The flaming building collapsed around them. The Sorceror and the Warrior died, but Rein somehow survived. Unluckily the townsfolk found him. Thinking that if they killed him, they could keep all his money, Rein had a pitchforked shoved into his head. The townsfolk then chased down the groups donkey that had been waiting outside. The donkey had held much of their gold, and had also caught on fire. The gold was melting and streaming out behind as the terrified donkey ran down the street...

Epitaph: Ironically, the town prospered on the money. The Flaming Ass in is a very prosperous place...

Cause of Death: A little backround, here. Im actually Bens GM, but I dont think hell mind.

For their first run, Ben and his buddies were sitting in a restaurant, waiting for a meet, when the Lone Star busted in. Ben and his pals, rather reactionary, started blazing away at the Star. The Star started shooting back. Ben hides behind a table, and pokes his pointy little head out. Cop sees head, cop shoots. With a light pistol, it somehow got staged up to a Deadly wound and cacked the so-called "invincible" Riptide. Night-night, Riptide.

Ruaak Shieldsplitter

Game System: DnD
Occupation: Dwarven Berserker
Player: Stephen
Gender: Male
Race: Dwarf
Date of Birth: 7th day of the Month of Dawn. 375th year of the Golden Empire
Date of Death: 1th day of the Month of Dusk. 455th year of the Golden Empire
Place of Death: Besiged castle of the Feudal Lord of the East, In front of the walls.

Cause of Death: Ruaak was never the brightest bulb in the lot, and he often (never) simply did not think out his plans. In this case the mistake proved fatal. He had been recruited (along with his team, Two archers, one rogue and a sorcerer) He had been doing quite well at manning one of the corners (guarding both the wall and the large stack of barrels, containing a large quantity of alchemists fire). In one particularly furious give and take with an attacker, Ruaak lost his beloved axe, having lost his own and only weapon, this dwarf improvised, taking up a severed (at the shoulder) arm, and proceeded to beat at least three more attackers to death before finally, at the point he was nearly overrun. With his in mind he stuck a lit torch between his teeth, hugged one of the barrels and threw himself off the walls and into the waiting army below, the resulting explosion was extremely impressive, not to mental damaging (to both sides).

Epitaph: Im sure theyll get be raised in no time!

Rolling another failure Sabrina accidentally kicked the "Pilot Ejection Lever." This ejected the pilots seat from the mech.. which was where Sabrina happened to be standing as she battled her target. She was launched at maximum speed for the roof of the mech hanger which was only 50 feet away. Her target was injured by the explosive bolts of the ejection but survived.

Salazar (or Salad Bar the Bewildered)

Game System: D&D 3rd edition
Occupation: somewhat inept ranger
Player: Reid Albano
Gender: Male
Race: half-elf
Date of Birth: unknown
Date of Death: unknown
Place of Death: Mountains near a caravan route

Cause of Death: After accepting a bet to play a character using only tridents and spears, the ill fated Salazar was born. The party was guarding a caravan traveling through some mountain foothills. Salazar, scouting ahead, came upon some mysterious tracks heading into the hills. Against his better judgement, and wondering if this was the prelude to an ambush along the road, Salazar followed them for several hours. The tracks turned out to belong to a druids horse. After conversing with the druid, who was extremely annoyed at being disturbed by "a lunatic ranger who cant even light a fire". Thoroughly humiliated, Salazar decided to take a "short cut" through the forest to catch up with the party. He promptly became lost. It was about midnight when Salazar was surprised by a mountain lion snarling at him from a rock. Thinking to at least regain some dignity, he tried to kill the beast with a javalin. Though wounded, the fearsome creature shattered Salazars trident and killed his horse, forcing our hero to flee on foot. Exhausted he took shelter in hollow tree. Several hours later, he was rudely awakend by a large band of gnolls. Though Salazar almost escaped, he was hacked down and eaten.

Epitaph: "Im never going into the woods again, in fact, Im going to become a lumberjack"

Satal Korrot

Game System: Gold DragonD&D 3rd ed
Occupation: Sorcerer/Dragon Diciple
Player: Phil
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Date of Birth: unknown
Date of Death: app 20 years later
Place of Death: Off the coast of the Evil Empire

Cause of Death: It was Satals first boat ride. The party needed transportation up the coast to follow a lead on the "Evil Cult." After surviving poison, undead, harpies, scrags, and pirates, the boat Satal and party were traveling on was drafted into the navy of Rel Astra as they tried to break the Evil Empires blockade of that city. After a dramatic (and mostly cinematic) battle, our ship was one of a few left. As one of the last enemy ships closed in, Satal grabbed the last few vials of Alchemsits fire and jumped into the catapult, telling his comerads to fire him at the closing ship. In the air, he threw one vial at the ships sails and the other at the main hatch to the lower deck. When he landed on the other ships deck, (not without damage) he used his cone of fire breath weapon to set most of the ship on fire. He was last seen covered in flames and fighting the enemy ships captain bare handed.

Epitaph: (To his fellow party members) "You head to the life boat. Ill hold them off as long as I can."

Sir Braxus

Game System: AD&D
Occupation: Paladin
Player: Ben
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Date of Birth: unknown
Date of Death: Unknown
Place of Death: Tower - Level 1,2 and 3

Cause of Death: Once in our party we had a paladin played by a kid called ben who never went into battle without a suit of full plate mail armour on. When we came across a tower we got in and advanced into the ground floor room. Facing us was 4 basilisks (stone gaze creatures). Ben advanced boldly into battle, only to discover in the confines of the tower when our mage let off a lightning bolt it rebounded off a basilisk, straight into ben, into a wall, then straight back into ben. Being in full plate mail armour the paladin rapidly became something of a dead paladin in a metal tin We Reseurrected ben and advanced up the stairs to the 1st floor, to find a hydra facing us. Once again ben charged yelling his battle cry. This time he succeeded in actually hitting the enemy, but 2 enemy heads bit huge holes in both him and his armour, leaving the paladin close to death. With only a mage, a rogue and a cleric (me)left the mage launched a fireball at the hydra, only he misjudged the range and set it off to close to ben. Ben Mk II died, this time of flame damage. The cleric proceded to wade in and finish the hydra off. After we ressurected him AGAIN (we had scrolls) we took the next and final level to find a old black dragon..... This time ben took advice and we surrounded it, attacking from all sides and at the same time. Worse luck though, just prior to death the dragon raised itself up on its hind legs and was immediately hit by about 4 blows. The dragon died, but Geuss who it fell towards? Yes ben, and this time despite being in perfect health, ben died as he failed to scramble away in time before the body crushed him. This might not be so amusing, but for the fact that all of this took place in one night within 2 hours. To my knowledge no other character Ive played with of D&D has ever been killed 3 times in 2 hours. The DM thankfully decided "Ben" had earnt his spell in the afterlife and refused to let us ressurect him again The player was not amused, but the rest of us were VERY amused

Epitaph: Should have learnt when to call it a day and take up knitting!

Occupation: Sorceror, big club wielder
Player: Adam
Gender: male
Race: Ogre
Date of Birth: 1001
Date of Death: he never could count.
Place of Death: The bottom of the Blood Sea

Cause of Death: Smash was an Ogre mage. He was actually quite intelligent for an Ogre, but he still had a speech imped..impi...problem. He also indulged in violent acts before thinking way too often. There was a time when Smash and his companions were sent on their first sea voyage. They were travelling along the coast and their ship was attacked by a Roc. Sadly Smashs companions didnt have much for ranged weapons and Smash only had so many spells. After the fighters ran out of arrows and javelins Smash threw his magic at the Roc. Fireballs, lightning bolts, cones of cold, etc... until Smash exhausted his spells. The DM had a triumphant look so Smash picked up a box and ripped it open. It contained some chickens. Smash used his Ogre strength and threw a chicken straight up at the Roc. It turned out the Roc had only one hit point left. Smash scored a critical hit. Sadly Smash failed to realize that the Roc was flying above their boat as it passed out from its wounds. It plummeted and destroyed the boat and its passengers. On a lighter side Smash came back as a ghost and enjoyed possesing bodys and making them run off cliffs.

Cause of Death: A (very) failed Jedi with a single minded goal: to embrace the darkside. Unfortunately the only thing standing in his way was a few hundred miles of Corscont atmosphere. His ship exploded above the planet leaving him stranded in a vaccum suit, falling to his death. In a valiant effort to stay alive he used his Absorb/dissipate Energy skill to absorb the fall through the atmosphere (the skill was 1d, he rolled a 38) only to splatter painfully against the unforgiving ground. The only solace to be gained from this sad event is that he aimed for the largest group of people, spread out his arms, and in his last nanoseconds in the living world, managed to fully embrace the power of the darkside.

Epitaph: Some of us fly, some of us fall, very few of us survive atmospheric friction. You did all three, and for that we salute you.

Place of Death: Snow lined pass near Tentowns in the Iceland Dale

Cause of Death: After a long illustrious career while fighting the Lich King, Longshanks was on his way to a small citadel in the Icewind Dale area. Being the arrogant fellow that he was, he decided that sending a runner to announce him was not enough. Instead, he fired a bolt from his hammer of thunderbolts into the air, letting the impressive roll of thunder thus created announce him. Problem... Loud noises and deep snow lined creavacess do not mix. Unable to avoid the resulting avalanch, he and all of his retainers (some 200 npcs) were buried alive and died horribly frozen in the snow.

Swalin

Game System: Hero Quest
Occupation: Warrior
Player: Bo
Gender: Male
Race: Elf
Date of Birth: 3016 Second Age
Date of Death: End of the Second Age (he was 21 when he bit the big one)
Place of Death: In Zargons Throne Room

Cause of Death: Most of the heroes that fought Zargon wished to simply end his threat to the races of humans, elves and dwarves. Swalin, however, had a different plan in mind. He wanted to fight for the thrill of it, and because the women loved warrior elves. He was a womanizer so when his mentor came to him to give him the final mission, to kill Zargon, he accepted. He along with Kurin, a Dwarf; Spacewiz, a wizard, and Borin, a human warrior led an assault on Zargons castle. The alliance army of a million soldiers attacked the castle and managed to keep most of the one million Goblins, Orcs, Fimirs and other monsters of Zargon busy while the four heroes infiltrated the castle to take out Zargon. Being arrogant, Swalin often got into trouble, often facing two or three Chaos Warriors of Doomguard at a time. He went through his potions very quickly. He often had to be helped out of trouble, but his body count was nothing short of astronomical, killing over four hundred monsters, fifty of them, members of Doomguard. They ascended the castle, which was more like a city, and reached Zargons throne room after more posturing by Swalin. Legion after legion of Orc, Goblin, Fimir, Skeleton, Zombie and Mummy surged after the heroes, only to be felled by them, with Swalin killing the bulk of them. Then the heroes faced a Gargoyle, which Swalin killed with ease. But all of this fighting was beginning to wear on him and he no longer had any potions of healing. Soon, all that remained were four Elite members of Doomguard. The heroes fought valiantly, and they felled the four remaining Chaos warriors, but they paid a heavy price. Kurin had fallen to his Chaos Warrior. But he was avenged by Swalin. Spacewiz had been wounded so after he hit Zargon with a Ball of Flame spell, Zargon unleashed a Firestorm inside the throne room, setting Spacewiz on fire. Spacewiz let out bloodcurdling screams as he burned. After a minute or so, Spacewiz died. This got Swalin angry and picking up Spacewizs spells, Swalin decided to take the fight to Zargon. He then saw Zargon get stabbed by the Spirit Blade in the stomach. Borin had reached the evil wizard first. It would have been a fatal wound for anyone else, but Zargon knew healing spells. But before he healed himself, he unleashed a Lightning Bolt that went through Borins chest, killing Borin, and also hit Swalin, severely injuring him. It was then that the castle was beginning to collapse due to the assault. Zargon neared Swalin with a grin. Swalin smiled and yelled, "Come get some, Zargon!" He then unleashed a massive Ball of Flame spell against Zargon. Zargon went up in a blaze, but before he did, he took Swalins Ring of Return and cast another Lightning Bolt. Swalin then cursed Zargon as he used what remained of his energy to kill Zargon with a Ball of Flame. With that the castle collapsed. It is also believed that there were no survivors on either side of the fight.

Epitaph: #^&% you Zargon!

Place of Death: Some tower in the forest south of Waterdeep

Cause of Death: The party (4 PCs : a mage, a warrior, a ranger and a priest of Tempus and 3 NPCs : a druidess, a mage and a archer) was looking for a priest of Bane who had stolen the freight they had to escort. Two of the 4 PC had already died (cf Armon). On top of the tower, the 2 surviving PCs found a box full of weapons, 2 priests of Bane fighting each other through 20 skeletons and a mercenary warrior fighting 3 skeletons all alone. The warrior was slightly injured. The 2 mages and the druidess didnt have any useful spells. All were despaired because of not knowing what to do first. The mage had an idea and ask his fellow warrior for a fire-pot (a small explosiv device they had found on the way). He said : "I will throw the fire-pot on the box and we will hide on the floor underneath." The warrior didnt give his fire-pot, but the druidess did. (She was really despaired and slightly curious.) The mage threw the fire-pot aiming directly for the box. It was full of fire-pot. Miscalculating the power of the device, the mage caused the decomposition and/or death of : 23 skeletons, 1 mercenary, 2 priests of Bane, 1 Warrior (PC), 1 Mage (PC), 1 druidess, 1 archer, 1 mage, 1 horse, 1 Howl (Mages familiar), 2 magic rings, 1 cursed Morning-Star and 1 whole tower.

Place of Death: The Caribbean

Cause of Death: The three agents -working for the fictional American covert agency in our game- were trying to penetrate the security of the Main Villain’s secret island base. They hit on the idea of chartering a plane and flying the short hope from the resort island of St. John to the villain’s hide out. They charter the plane and meet the pilot early in the morning the following day for their sight seeing trip. One of the agents recognizes the pilot as one of the villain’s henchman. Without explaining to the other two what hes up too, Manny pulls his pistol and shoots out the radio. Only then does he explain to the others that their pilot is in league with the bad guys. At this point, a struggle ensues –as one would expect. In the course of the struggle with the pilot –who incidentally was NOT in league with the Main Villain- Moe opens the pilots side door as Jack cuts loose the seat belts while Manny Keeps the poor pilot in a choke hold from his position behind him. Long story short, the innocent pilot gets tossed out of the plane at five thousand feet and meets a harsh death in the waters of the Caribbean. Only then does it occur to the trio of players that none of their characters have even a single rank in piloting skill. Despite their best efforts, the plane crashes swiftly into the Caribbean.

Gender: Male
Race: Half-elf
Date of Birth: 30 years ago
Date of Death: 30 years after birth
Place of Death: A tavern near a temple of Pelor

Cause of Death: For about a month, the party had been tracking a certain man carrying a certain book. Theyd tracked him to a harbor town, centerpiece of which was a temple of Pelor, the sun god. Trogdor, a chaotic neutral cleric of the goddess credited with creating the world, was very anxious to prove his worth to the party that he had just joined. They were interrogating a bartender about whether hed seen the man. Trogdor alone realized that the man knew more than he was letting on. When the barkeep went into the storeroom of his inn, Trogdor followed and cornered him. Trogdor manifested a Flame Shield and a Produce Flame spell and gave the barkeep one last chance to confess what he knew. The weeping bartender swore that he nothing. "Fine," said Trogdor. And he hurled a fireball at a stack of barrels in the storeroom. It just so happens that the barrels contained ale. Can you say KABOOOOMM!? Well, between Trodgors fire resistant armor and flame shield, he took very little damage. The bar and its patrons, on the other hand, were pretty much incinerated. Among them, one of Trogdors party members was also killed. The act of killing 30 innocents in one fell swoop was enough to shift Trogdor to chaotic evil. It just so happens that a monk (the next character for the player whose fighter just died) was leaving the temple and sees the burning tavern and the cleric still manifesting the produce flame spell. He manages to put 2 and 2 together. He challenges the cleric to a fight which he (the monk) loses. But just barely. Trogdor, settling into to being evil, takes this opportunity to urinate on the monks corpse. He looks up and sees the elven archer in his party walking away. He runs to follow her, but failed to put his...ahem...piece away before he sees it. She nocks an arrow and shoots it at his crotch. The fight with the monk left Trogdor severely damaged. So an arrow withe shocking and flaming on it, that scored a maximum damage critical hit, was enough to kill him.

Epitaph: Hmmm...maybe I should have held it.

The Paladin in the party, who was not directly involved in the robbery, was arrested for an unrelated incident. After much torture and magical questioning, the Abu Risharans discovered that he was connected with us. Unknown to him, upon his release a magical homing beacon was placed upon him. An Abu Risharan high priest tracked high priest tracked us to the city of Respir and kidnappped the paladin in order to lure us out of the protection of the city walls. We naturally set out to rescue him. With a rousing cry of "Die holy man!", Tyrgeiz charged straight into an ambush. After taking a considerable amount of damage from the High Priests soldiers, Tyrgeiz was magically commanded to throw down his arms and surrender. As one of the soldiers came up to deliver a coup de grace, the party mage, the somewhat misname Brendor the conjurer, shot a lightning bolt at the attacking soldier, killing him. Unfortunately it also blasted Tyrgeiz. The high priest ultimately escaped.

Epitaph: DIE HOLY MAN!!
