Player: Amanda Vosloh
Gender: Female
Race: Human
Date of Birth: 5027 A.F.
Date of Death: 5047 A.F.
Place of Death: Outside of a monastery on some monster-ridden island

Cause of Death: When the monks in the monastery sensed there was something "wrong" with Galena (unknown to her at the time, she was carrying a magical tracking device planted by a mind flayer when she was captured on a previous adventure), they refused to allow her inside the protective walls of the monastery for the night. Being the great guys that they are, most of the party left Galena to face the horrors of the island alone...only the group cleric, Alexander Swaggart offered to stay with her through the evening. Sometime during the night, a robed stranger was noticed sneaking around in the nearby foliage. When Galena went to investigate, she discovered that he was a disguised yuan-ti, and battle insued. Using his ability to control snakes, the yuan-ti had both of his pet giant constictors attack. While the rest of the party watched from the monastery walls, Galena and Swaggart each battled a monstrous serpent. After a couple of rounds, a ranger from the party came out to rescue his team mates. Faced with a choice of who to help first, Droz (the ranger) helped slay the snake attacking the group cleric (their only healer). In the meantime, poor Galena was squeezed to death and swallowed whole by the 30 foot reptile that she had been fighting. Fortunately for her allies, when they later killed and cut open the huge beast, most of Galenas equipment was unharmed. So in loving memory, they set about squabbling over who got to take her ring of sustenance and scimitar of speed...The gold they split evenly.

Epitaph: You ASSHOLES!!!

Game System: D&D
Occupation: Thief-Barbarian
Player: Jeremiah
Gender: M
Race: Hobgoblin
Date of Birth: apr 13 2003
Date of Death: apr 13 2003
Place of Death: Island off the coast of waterdeep.

Cause of Death: Garak the blessed after having been saved from death TWICE earlier in the day by the benevolent God of Justice, TYR. Entered a Cave occupied by three OLD WHITE DRAGONS after hearing shouts from the partys half dragon scout. Garak, a recent convert from Talos god of destruction (a week before in game time) called on Tyrs holy name and charged into the fray, managing (at a puny level 7) to annoy one dragon, and hit another in the wing, slightly aggravating it. At this point the battle went in favor of the party and two of the three dragons were down. The last was hit in the left eye by and arrow fired by the partys Drow mage who used truestrike. (also known as cheap-o spell #1) the dragon proceeded to snake its serpentine head past the bulky body of a fallen companion which Garak and the half dragon were now hiding behind in order to bite the half dragon character in half. this provoked an attack of opportunity from Garak. Who noting that he was on the left side of the dragon and while having no chance of hitting the dragon with his non-magical flail (unless he rolled a natural 20) decided to reach up and yank the arrow from the Wyrms eye just before its jaws clamped on the hapless half dragon, thus diverting its attack. Just before the next round, the Dm asked for actions for teh next round, adn due to the Dragons near-death state, Garak thought it would be a good idea to taunt the dragon by holding the eye gut covered arrow aloft, proclaiming in a loud and thunderous voice "hey ugly! This is your eye gut!" then to add inslut to injusry to apologize and move to the dragons right side (the left eye now being a hobgoblin lillipop in the words of an ally) and once within view to repeat the tautn and lick the eye gut gratuitously from the arrow. Well, Garak rolled only a 14 for initiative, and the dragon rolled an 18, so before his allies could finish the creature off it grasped poor garak round the body with one claw and popped his head off like a Dr. Pepper can with the other.

Epitaph: Not a Way to Get Ahead In LIfe!

Getbo Tallywhacker

Game System: D&D 3rd edition
Occupation: Rogue
Player: Brandon
Gender: Male
Race: Gnome
Date of Birth: n/a
Date of Death: n/a
Place of Death: outside castle Snumpkin

Cause of Death: The session started with me (a gnome psion) and my friend Brandon (a gnome rogue). We began inside the Gnomish castle Snumpkin, where we awaited the orders of the king. The first thing that we always do in a session is to introduce and describe our characters. Brandon being lazy "didnt know how to make a character" so I did for him. When the DM asked for his name and description he looked at his sheet and discovered that he had none (I had left this part up to him but he had forgotten). So our loving DM named him Gerbo Tallywhacker and made him gigantic, ugly and fat. Brandon not wanting play such a miserable Gnome, decided to kill himself by jumping out the window. The DM made him roll a will save to see if he had the guts, he rolled a "1". So then he was forced to roll a tumble check to try and save himslef, he rolled a "20" and landed unscratched on his feet. Angrily, gerbo attacked the first person he saw, a castle guard. He missed with his unarmed strike (he had no equipment either), but the guard proceded to drop his sword. Gererbo of course picked up the sword and killed the guard in one hit. Now frustrated, he ran frantically around the castle searching for someone to kill him. After killing half a dozen guards I put him out of his misery with an arrow through the skull. It being 3am we all then decided to go to sleep.

Epitaph: I HATE YOU GUYS!!

Place of Death: The throne room of an old palace that was taken over by Lizardfolk.

Cause of Death: Ah... Many things, the partys lack of a cleric, being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or even a mages failed attempt at healing him. The most "direct" source of his death, however, was the high shaman of a tribe of lizardfolk who had somehow attained a kind of energy rifle. It blasted a hole straight through the monks chest. The partys mage tried to save him, but it was futile. The high shaman escaped before the partys fighter could kill him.

Hannibal Hix

Game System: Call of Cthulhu
Occupation: Archaeologist
Player: Christopher Peers
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Date of Birth: 1890
Date of Death: 1924
Place of Death: The Darkest Jungle in India

Cause of Death: Ah, yes. The indomitable Hannibal Hix. A noted archaeologist, noted for bold discoveries, remarkable insights, theft, assault, and innumerable discharges of firearms within city limits. A steadfast upper class Brit, his motto was Fire All Weapons and Hope for the Best! His battles with the alien gods seeking to invade our world led him to Egypt, Peru, Russia, madness three times and to death four times. No blasphemous spell would resurrect him this fifth time, oh no. On yet another investigation against The Elder Gods of the Outer Evil, he and his band of fellows a sorcerer-scientist who had raised an army of zombies and an incarnation of a six armed travesty of a Hindu god. Hannibal and his merry men fired their weapons until the barrels melted down, and Hannibals jammed. The six armed horror pursued Hannibal relentlessly, as the one surviving merry man had set sail with the only boat. With a four-meter monstrosity wielding six swords thundering close behind, Hannibal ran unto the river trying to unjam a rifle, cursing all the way. The monster cornered him on the riverbank, whereupon Hannibal drew two Luger 9 mm pistols, emptying them both into the horror. Not that the horror cared. With a blinding flash and the ringing of steel, the being of evil sent Hannibals entrails flying all over the riverbank. With a heavy sigh, Hannibal Hix fell back upon the jungle floor and died.

Epitaph: Archaeologist bold, who stole the gold, and killed in the name of science; he shot them all, and watched them fall, but then came one who was just too tall.

Place of Death: Pentex subsidiary headquarters in Switzerland

Cause of Death: After facing off against two electricity elementals to get through the gates and scaring the s**t out of a janitor when he crossed back from the umbra in full crinos. I ran into a patrol of Pentex grunts. They chased me and my mage accomplice into an elevator shaft where I started to climb up with the mage on my back and tried to ignore the silver bullets grazing my feet. We finaly got through a door about three floors up and were making my way through some cubicles when another group of grunts, who had been alerted to our presence, came arround the corner infront of us and began to fire. I killed two with one blow from my war-hammer and the mage got another before we had to take cover in one of the cubicles. Not seeing any other options, I ripped a hole in the celing and told the mage to start climbing while I got ready with my shotgun. Right then, a Pentex grunt fired his slug shotgun through the cubicle wall and hit me sqare in the chest with a silver slug. It passed through my chest and actually hit the mage, pushing both of us to mauled. I threw the mage up thru the hole Id made in the celing and then climbed up after him, into a clean room. We were making for the door as the Pentex guards threw a white-phosphorus grenade after us and set of the halon fire-extenguishing system. The mage was now blind and I no longer had a sense of smell. We mannaged to stumble into the hall just in time to get impaled on another janitors mop who was immune to Delirium.

Himo Nailo

Game System: D&D Forgotten Realms
Occupation: Monk of the Broad-Leaf order
Player: Jon F
Gender: Male
Race: Moon Elf
Date of Birth: unknown
Date of Death: the fifth year in the time of troubles
Place of Death: IN the not so empty sewers under Waterdeep

Cause of Death: Opening that chest was just the first step. After failing the save to avoid the poison, Himo stumbled upon an adolecent green dragon some noble thought of as a pet. Now this was no ordinary poison. It was made mainly from the blood of gargoyles. Himo had all of 15 minutes to find a cleric or palidan who would be willing and able to dispel such a vial poison. Many decades later an up and coming Rogue found the oddest of statues in the depths of the catacombs beneath waterdeep. Not having any better place to start a base of opperations, the rogue started moving his things from above ground to the sewer-statue. And to this day if one is brave enough to venture into the very center of the Black Hearts sanctuary, you may still be able to see a worn figure of a man in loose breeches in an eternal wrestle with a mighty dragon.

Epitaph: I could have been a druid and spent all my time in the woods

First, the groups maniacal cleric of Bane just had to rouse the noblemans brother from his sleep as we were plundering the house, to torture him. The paladin punched him, jumped up, grabbed his sword and shield, and then proceeded to make short work of our group, starting with the fighter, then whacking the cleric twice (he cast cure minor wounds on himself when he was at 0 hp), and finally slaying both the sorcerer and poor Indath. At this time, our party ranger came in the room, and attacked the paladin. He got a few licks in, and the paladin took him down to 0 hp in a few rounds. As his last, desperate action, the ranger stabbed the paladin, killing him, and then succumbed to his wounds.

Epitaph: "Paladins... I hate these guys."

Jack "Spider" Webb

Game System: Mage the Ascension
Occupation: shaman
Player: BigAl
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Date of Birth: Oct 9, 1972
Date of Death: June, 1990
Place of Death: The Umbra

Cause of Death: Spider was a Dreamwalker, hippie and a total pacifist; he never killed anyone and tried to keep the rest of the party from killing. One of the other characters became pregnant and announced that she was going to get an abortion as soon as we returned to the real world, which wouldnt be for several months. I figured that such a total "value of life" nut would not be comfortable with such a late abortion so my character tried to talk her out of it and offered to adopt the child instead. Little did I know, the player was a radical feminist who was offended by my IC action. She payed the Euthanatos mage to hit my character with "friendly fire" during the next battle with some web spiders (ironic). What makes the story funny is that she went on to kill, frame, or othwerwise eliminate the next five characters I brought into the campaign.

Epitaph: "Argh. But that attack came from ... behind?"

Jared having zip in the way of urban skills, duly went off and tried his best to break into this house, eventually dropping in through a skylight and then finding himself in a pitched battle with the merchants house staff. While he felled the bodyguard and gardener easily enough, he was run through while drinking a potion to restore the wounds he had taken from the bodyguards attacks. Ironically his killer was the very merchant he had been sent to kill.

Jamming it into he ground, Jerik let go of it to get his two-handed longsword for the closer fighting, without surprises. Unfortunately, he got one anyway.

Date of Birth: 1905
Date of Death: 1923
Place of Death: Providence, R.I.

Cause of Death: While I was momentarily distracted in the Real World™, Jimmys comrades (consisting of fellow co-workers Clark Ment, Lois Mane, & Perry Mite) thought that it was in the best interest of the party for a recently stricken-blind individual (its a long story) to lead the way while they descended the main staircase of an old haunted house. I returned to the gaming table to the chorus of "...make the most important roll in your characters life!" Naturally, I failed, and little Jimmy Molson proceeded to: become the target of spontaneous human combustion, trip & fall down the stairs, during which his ammunition began to explode, setting off the dynamite and molotovs he was carrying, scattering burning bits of him around the foyer and lighting the curtains on fire, resulting in the whole house burning to the ground!

Epitaph: Even in death, little Jimmy had a knack for doing things in style...

I grabbed the prince and used the amulet... UNFORTUNATELY, he had massed an army of wraiths in the Umbra whom promptly beat my ass back into the real world whereupon I was thrashed by two Elementals whom the Prince had summoned with a ritual. I, not quite dead, was subjected to a spirit thaumaturgy ritual in which my eternal soul was transferred into a penny and given to a wraith to flick at people through the Umbra curtain. He lost it to a boy who bought bubblegum at the drugstore, and I am currently trapped inside the candy machine.

Cause of Death: Not knowing the 3rd edition D&D rules. It was my first character in the third edition D&D. My character lasted five minutes. The party was in town and not wearing armor. Five minutes into the first game, the party heard a woman screaming for help and saw some thugs dragging her into an alley. The ranger insisted on stringing his bow and donning armor before doing anything, which the DM said would take five rounds. The other rogue refused to go into the alley at all; she said it was none of our business. The MU fired one magic missile at one of the thugs and was out of combat spells for the day. The cleric ran for the justicars (police). Fearing that the rogues would be long gone with their victim by the time the ranger was ready, Julian ran into the alley alone. He meant to just follow them until the rest arrived and was not planning to fight, but a half orc turned to meet him while the rest dragged the woman away. The DM told me that he was "looking extremely furous" Julian was a rogue, but he had a 17 Con, so I figured he could hold his own until the rest arrived. I used Expertise to parry the orcs attack. I knew that a half orc gets a +2 Strength bonus. What I did not know was the half orc barbarian had maximum strength, 20, was berserk, which add +4 strength, and was using a two handed axe which multiplies his strenght bonus by 1.5 24 strength = +7 damage times 1.5 = +10 damage. One blow would have killed a first level fighter even if he rolled a 1 damage. I also did not know that an axe does triple damage on a critical hit. The half orc won initiative then hit with a critical. Julian was hit for 38 points of damage. He had 9 hit points; he took over 4 times his total hit points with the first blow. The DM stated that the rest of the party saw the top half of Julian fly out of the alley into the street. Lesson: never fight a 3rd edition barbarian with a first level character, even another barbarian.

Epitaph: DM: Im sorry. I didnt know a barbarian could do so much damage!

Cause of Death: The GM decided that it was time for a new campaign with new characters (our current ones had become too high level), so he declared that all of our party�s characters were dead. Since we all said that this wasn�t fair, and that it should at least be role-played out, he said: �Fine, you have a twenty-mile wide meteor head straight towards you, what do you do?� Most of the party member shifted to another plane, only to discover that this was an �extradimensional� meteor that existed in any plane that they went to. Juttor simply raised his shield of missile absorption and shouted, �I�ve still got 19 charges left!�

Epitaph: It took twenty-one meteorites to kill him
