Saw a few posts recently with folks talking about lethality in campaigns.
Here's the deaths of PCs and their retainers in my current weekly campaign.
1st session: (no date, other dates are in-game)
Atlatum (Elf, M-U/T)- was disemboweled by a Buggane which bit his head off and stripped the flesh off in it's maw before spitting it at the rest of the party.
Jimmy the Shimmy (young thief side-kick) - killed by a poison trap inspecting a door. Corpse used to check for traps for a while after death.
Evander the Hunter (Human Ftr)- stoned by a Basilisk
Ralgluk (Elf Ftr/MU)- Taken captive by the snow Queen and her Ice Gnomes, left for dead by party, last played locked in a cell with a Yeti.
17 Nov. Drenvar (Human Ftr)- Eaten by a Wyver-Cobra, corpse was expelled as a coprolite-mummy.
21 Nov. Korian (Human MU)- killed by thieves before he could even leave for an adventure.
16 Dec. Twigberry (1/2Elf Druid)- Drowned by ghouls.
4 Jan. Norvak (Human Thf)- tumbles down mountain side on horse while fleeing an army of the dead.
12 Mar. Jeer (o-level minion) killed by vampire
14 Mar. Hughe (0-level minion) killed by vampire
Only 10 PC and retainer losses so far, I'm getting lax in my old age.
The party has also lost 2 war dogs and at least a half dozen horses.
It's been about 8 months, I've lost track of how many sessions it comes in at 35 pages in my campaign log.
6 out of 11 PC's rolled up have been lost.
