TOPIC: Highest Number of Party Member Deaths?

Highest Number of Party Member Deaths? 2 months 2 weeks ago #1

we just played out game and it was brutal!

and lots of fun :)

we all died in the last room but on the way we also had 7 other deaths
yay!

Druegar’s Death Die saved one with an 18.
the paladin sacrificed twice in the last room thanks to the clerics restore power.
and a few mushrooms and potions were used.
Some lucky new players will be getting gifts next con!

Anyone else have stories about high party kill numbers?
*mental note* always listen to Jeff

I think that beats all my runs. I think I killed at most 5, with 2-3 in an earlier fight and 2-3 in the final fight, pre-push?
I came here to sing and collect tokens, and I'm alllll out of money.

We ran it on Nightmare and our DM said ours was the first zero deaths run that he had seen.

We had a Paladin, Druid, and Cleric (me) all chipping in for the heals. We succeeded all fights, and only pushed on one puzzle.

And STILL, it was utterly brutal. We walked into the last fight with all that push damage, and then lost initiative and immediately started eating huge amounts of incoming damage.

I've got a "Buff/Heal, never Swing" style build of UR+ and I am still positive that if it weren't for my lenses letting me split heals, there were people who would have been dying. We were just barely hanging in there at the end, and we had exhausted just about everything.

A fun, tense, challenging dungeon to say the least. If I had any doubts about the Cleric Legendary Neck, this run had me immediately ordering my Eldritch Bar so that I would have the last of the components I needed. Definitely my most challenging one to date.

For the record as well, we ran it with no Rogue, so we had no access to the Rogue clues for the puzzles. And nobody had done the dungeon before, so we were all flying blind. Those were particularly some rough solves, especially the final one. I still have zero idea what we were supposed to be doing, but after the first failure, we realized we just couldn't afford to keep guessing, so we healed up and then prepared for the push.

Did a nightmare run. Had one die before room seven from what I remember. Then we all died at the end. It was awesome!!! Glad to be challenged. Makes you want to do another just so you can see if you can survive.

You are remembering correctly. The cleric took 90(30/30/30) damage in 1 round and the paladin sacrificed on the second and so the cleric died on third. Then someone popped a fallen mushroom in him.
You either discover a star or you don't. You arrogant punk.

My group had 9 on Nightmare and everyone perished in room 7. We got down to 1 creature left and ran out of time. mushrooms/paladin sacrifice and much healing was used.

I truly enjoyed the more difficult scenario and thought this was perhaps the best VTD adventure yet.

My only run of the weekend is coming within the hour. So glad I have PoDD and ‘shrooms on hand to help keep the party going.

And my Lay on Hands, of course...

Just wrapped up with my normal party. 6/10 died in the last room, and I finished with 8HP. The party has been gearing up since VTD started, and I’m super glad difficulty has grown with us - otherwise we would be steam rolling these.

I think that the highest number of deaths in a single room likely goes to the bloody nightmare that I was part of where we had 12 deaths in room 4 but that was pretty much an expected outcome for us.

We had a TPK in the last room. It was REALLY fun.
