Unlucky number post thirteen of #RPGaDay!

I’ve already discussed the trials and tribulations of my favorite character, Morvael, which you can read about here. Although his self-sacrifice was epic, it doesn’t have quite the same notoriety that comes with the way my psychic bellydancer vigilante, Scheherezade, met her doom on a Pennsylvania interstate.

cold_steel_wardens_cover_by_everwho-d64mfeqIt bears mentioning that our GM has since garnered a reputation for car-based TPKs (there was at least one other vehicular incident in his campaigns, and possibly a third as well). We probably also shouldn’t have given driving duties to the character who had spent the whole night DJing at the local Apocalypse Club. But the dice fell where they may, and he rolled a critical fumble on his “stay awake” roll and then botched his “don’t overcorrect” roll afterwards. Suffice it to say, we failed nearly every single roll thereafter as we tried to pull each other from the wreckage while dodging 55mph+ incoming traffic. Oh, and the car exploded after a number of rounds, too. Boom–four less vigilantes on the streets. We never did get to see what was awry in Centralia, PA.

Fun fact: despite her anticlimactic demise, my character Scheherezade is in the rogues’ gallery of the core rulebook!

    Our party of super heroes dying in a car crash is definitely my most memorable character death as well. Heck, that game master has been responsible for every character death I’ve had in a campaign save one. Guess some GMs are just like that 🙂
