My Tiefling Rogue died tonight. A party member was using a Psionic ability to attack an enemy, he rolled a 1, and accidentally hit me instead. For triple damage. I haven’t had the best luck with increasing my Hit Points each time I level, because I am teh suck with my die rolls. But even if the Psion had rolled the minimum amount of damage, I still would have been dead.
The DM has this table of what happens when you roll a 1 for your attack. You roll percentile die, and depending on what the results are, something bad or very bad will happen.
On the positive side, it’s the first time she has died, so yay for that. The DM has been looking forward to her death for a long time, because of background character plot stuff. I wrote this awesome (if I do say so myself) background for her which gave the DM a lot to work with storywise. I’m looking forward to what he has in store for Rui’s death experience. She has infernal blood, and so I think her soul is going to travel to horrible places before she gets resurrected. I’m tempted read up on devils and stuff… And the Planes.
Oh, and I killed a black dragon last week without taking damage because I rock. Okay, other people softened it up, but I killed it. I took some teeth as a trophy.
In Guild Wars last weekend, I defeated all 6 aspects (one for each Profession) of the dragon oracle, Glint, as well as killed Glint herself (the Bonus Mission), so it was a weekend of dragon slay-age all around.
EDIT: I know that Tieflings ordinarily can’t be resurrected, but when it was brought up a few months ago, the DM said that I could be.
EDIT: And so I am alive again. Proper Ressurrection as well, none of this Raise Dead nonsense. I also have a Belt of Earth’s Hide +4 now, because a bunch of dwarves were grateful for the party destroying a lich who made his home on the borders of their lands. This means more HP for my fragile Rogue — hooray!
