Annihilated

True gaming story.

I’m running my group through the Tomb of Annihilation adventure and there are quite a few deadly death traps. Traps where if they reduce you to 0 hit points you just die outright, being decapitated or ground into a pulp or squished flat. I was a little surprised when the high damage acid trap wasn’t one of them. Which makes some sense: there’s a difference from being burned by acid enough to be severely injured and on the brink of death, and being instantly dissolved into goop.

But the character barely surviving was a bit of a surprise.
