    And that, dear children is why we let the trap monkey take the lead, not the meat shield.
    Wait, you say they were all meat shields?
    Well, that's were they went wrong.

    So he was the leader huh?
    Yeah, still giving Pellan the benefit of doubt, depending on the exact circumstances, but that ex-teammate of his is definitely understandably upset.
    If you have to lead your party into a total wipe at least don't walk it off. Terribly bad manners that.

    But Lord No Helmet deserves a arrow (trap) to the face?
    Who does he think he is? A protagonist?
    Not that it helped the others.

    This is why you always have someone with Trapfinding in the FRONT.

    Oh wait, someone’s already made that joke. It’s true though.

    Really?

    I mean, to be fair, they were a bit in a hurry here, but that's still just about the most straightforward trap Pellan could've triggered.

    Huh. I thought they were sandwiched between two walls, but it turns out there was this big open space. That makes the trap a lot less lethal.

    Five bucks says that there was another trap right where someone would jump off there, assuming it wasn’t high enough for someone to just break their neck and die.

    That makes sense. Like maybe a trap door or something.

    Meanwhile, based on the number of spoken lines so far, I'm venturing a guess that Flat Top probably wasn't the party face.

    EDIT: Wait a second, Too Cool to Wear a Helmet is Vengeful Undead Not-Pellan?! The swords they wield are certainly the same.

    If whatever happened to him turns out to have happened because he wasn't wearing a helmet, I'm going to laugh.

    „The designers wouldn't create a trap they couldn't escape from.”

    Minor issue with that one. It assumes they intended for anyone to enter the place. Or leave it.

    If you're locking something or someone away no way out is a feature, not a bug.

    Alternatively, they had a way out that doesn't require there to be a way out. Do we know how (im)possible teleport is in this setting?

    More importantly, someone stop Pellan poking things. It's bad for your health.

    I think anyone with any experience with role playing games is has to deal with a skull-splitting headache reading this. And possibly needs to fix a wall or two.

    And I thought Jim* was bad.
    On the other hand that guy'd trigger those traps deliberately as part of some barely thought through plan...
    Not sure which is better. The one where you can take cover and brace for impact, I guess.

    Does it still count as a TPK if some of the party's still animate? We may be about to find out.

    Also, yeah, it does seem now like there's a 'personal' element to why Other Skeleton Guy (assuming they are the same as Helmetless Guy here) wants revenge on Pellan so badly...

    So there was someone who can deal with traps in the party.
    So it's their fault for letting the meatshield lead.

    Also, shoving a big stone into a mechanism is a "delicate touch"?

    I'm pretty sure it's not a rock, but rather a piece of cloth too. The better question is, how did Whiny Knight get into that exact weird position that we see on panel 3? It looks like the left hip is fully on this side, but the left leg's behind the column with the knee sticking out further yet to the left. Does Whiny Knight have an extra joint in those thighs?!
