Each time a Slasher dies, the steel gate herds the rest towards a drop into the Charybdis Death Fans and a permanent Sunder. The gate itself is protected by the Scylla Death Squad: executioners with dinosaur skulls and flamethrowers that will Immolate anyone approaching. By the end, there are two Slashers left and no way to heal other than having a spell beforehand.
|Varga survives two of Vulch's Spinning Hip Tosses into the Death Fans, but the pain of being suddenly limbless nullifies her Recuperate spell. The Fans also claim Zwanziger's tail, but not before he slays Ixnay.|
|With her last ounce of strength, an armless Varga kicks Wretchedness into the Scylla Firewall, enraging the flame troopers. Engulfed in flame, Wretchedness nevertheless dashes at the weakened Varga and burns her to death with his Immolated body.|
I was playing Varga in that, and that was EASILY the most embarrassing death in my ten-eleven years of this game. I can deal with bleeding out, but to lose your last two pints to the guy you just kicked into fire...!?
Pardon the pun: BURN.
