Had our first death of a character during our Rise of the Runelords campaign, which came as a bit of a shock to most of the group. Exploring an old structure underneath the Skull’s Crossing dam, they set off a construct guardian, a Skullripper. The rogue, opening the wrong door at the wrong time, happened to get its attention immediately, and despite the group’s best efforts, rather rapidly had her head removed from her body. The paladin and cleric almost shared the same fate, but with the combined efforts of much of the group, they managed to destroy the creature, but not before the loss of their friend.
Fortunately, death is only temporary in Pathfinder, so the group now needs to sort out how to bring the character back during the next session.
