In any roleplaying game, death is a constant reminder to players that no, they aren't invincible. Whether it's from an enemy, a fall, or poison, there's a lot of creative ways for players to die. Here's to hoping to coming up with as many strange, weird and bizarre ways to kill off PCs.

1: Food Poisoning
2: Lightning Strikes
3: Falls
4: Impaled on own sword
5: Crushed by drawbridge
6: Defenestration (Technically a fall, but I digress)
7: Brain impaled by a splintered javelin
8: Trampled by horses
9: Choking on food
10: Rolling into lava/a river/off a cliff while asleep
11: Healing spell backfires
12: Papercut becomes infected
13: Drowning in wine/beer
14: Bald head mistaken for a rock and an eagle drops a tortoise on it
15: Strangled by own armor during a polymorph
16: By Friend Computer
17: Self-cannibalism
18: Space Exposure
19: Electrical Shock from computer/television
20: Stolen for hair by a roc
21: Crushed by a vending machine
22: Hit by own stone while trying to sling it
