Alrighty, what have been some moments in games you've played, where you find yourself thinking is this really happening? We did this to our characters... the poor things.

I play a NG halfling sorceror (fey bloodlines) in pathfinder, her name is Mary-gold. She has a wisdom modifier of -1, and an int mod of 0. She makes impulsive choices, that might end badly. Her spells are mainly about screwing with people or objects, with a couple exceptions. We're doing King Maker (explores tossed into the woods, told to start a city), and our DM has a bunch of hackmaster stuff he converts and adds in to keep things interesting.

One of the npcs he added has taken on a sort of teacher roll to Mary-gold, and is encouraging her to become a diabolist, controlling devils to either hunt more of them, hunt demons, or whatever fits I suppose. Alignment requirements being LG, LE, or NE. So... right now she can't but in game she doesn't know that, so she learns the things that teacher tells her and we'll see if between then and now, something changes her alignment (boo level drop...)

As a part of her studies, teacher gave Mary-gold an imp. He goes by Charlie, and Mary-gold made him a suit after he saved her life. He has to follow what instructions Mary-gold gives him, however she is awful at giving instructions. The whole wis -1 thing, and the fey bloodlines make her kinda moody.

Mary-gold was sad. Her beloved donkey had been killed by a nasty fey vampire like thing, and she couldn't even help kill it because she was too busy watching it dance, and it left her a great big hickey... Anyways! Charlie saw that Mary-gold was a little down, and offered to ask a friend of his to help make her donkey better. And Mary-gold, without thinking, gave permission.

Which is how the party ended up looking at a portal to hell with a dead donkey slowly descending into it.

Le Boue, who is a very wise frog, tied a rope around the donkey and started to pull. Some people assisted, while others asked Mary-gold and Charlie what was going on. Charlie explained that a friend of his, Stew, was going to fix up Reginald (the donkey), then bring it back over. Which prompted Duwatten to ask what Stew looked like, so Charlie drew a little picture on the ground, that Mary-gold could tell was a great big fire devil that I forget the actual name of... Which Duwatten did not like to hear. Now, Miir, the assimar, decides nope, no imps, and attacks Charlie. So Mary-gold casts glitter dust in hopes of blinding Miir, but gets Meeco instead, who was helping pull on the rope and is now a bit angry.

Mary-gold tells Charlie not to hurt them (and uses message to tell him to cut the rope), while Duwatten lassos Mary-gold, and ties her to the still sinking donkey. But Mary-gold has still spell so no biggie, so long has Charlie cuts the rope so that she doesn't go through portal. Which, by using suggestion (jedi mind trick style spell) on Miir, he does.

At this point, Le Boue and the others who were pulling fall flat on their asses. Meeco, who was pulling, and looked human up until that point, is so frustrated she just can't handle it! So her true self slips through, a fluffy foxy lady kitsune. Le Boue springs up, grabs the short bit of rope still on the donkey, and rages to keep on pulling. Teska, a half elf ranger, had been earlier hit with a major curse, and is so confused by whats going on, thinks she's tripping, so sits down. Her bear sits beside her.

Miir is still intent on killing Charlie, and hits him with a magic missile after her fire sphere had poor results. Then, apparently out of no where, teacher appears! Standing right on top of the sinking donkey, between Miir and Charlie, and very sternly tells her to stand down. Miir doesn't, so Loirra (teacher) gets Miir and anyone behind her with lightening, then closes the portal... Which also cuts Reginald in half down the centre.

Mary-gold blurts out, "She started trying to hurt Charlie and I don't know why!" causing other people to give her looks of you must be kidding. Then everyone argues for a bit, Meeco channels to heal everyone back up, and they have an uncomfortable trip home.

What have some of your adventures gone wrong looked like?

I've only watched other people do tabletop role-play type stuff. I don't have the friends necessary for it. However I do really enjoy watching URealms Live. All kinds of stuff has happened with that. Like one time a character got crushed to death by a donkey being thrown into the arena they were fighting in.

It was hilarious to watch happen though. The way it's done means character deaths aren't as crippling too as each campaign comes with new characters rather than reusing the old ones over and over. That's not to say old characters don't come back though. In fact there were a lot of old characters in the final campaign of the first season.
