Death of a Player Character

It is with sad regret that I have to inform you of the passing of a once great player character.

The passing of Ekckhhardth

On the tenth day of the month of June in the Year of Our LORD 2018, an ill prepared expedition of adventurers traveled north from Neverwinter. This foolhardy expedition were beset in the early hours of the morning by Beastmen. Having dispatched the initial assault of these vial creatures, the adventurers were in short order set upon again by more of these fearsome beasts from the same herd.

Ekckhhardth's final moments

In the ensuing battle, Ekckhhardth was reduced to near certain death. In an act of final desperation, his colleagues note that Ekckhhardth performed a desperate act. He cast a Fire Rune spell beneath him detonating the arcane charge.

He gave his life to save his friends

This act of desperation guaranteed his immediate demise but resulted in taking the life of many of the Beastmen as well. Ekckhhardth companions, once recovered from the shock of the detonation, were able to dispatch the few remaining creatures and flee for their lives.

In this way, Ekckhhardth sacrificed his own life to save that of his companions. An act not in keeping with his usual behaviour but one that was much appreciated.

May Ekckhhardth rest in peace...

Or in pieces as it turned out in the end.
