Hm, I seem to keep burning after I'm dead. Might be a bug...

You immerse yourself in the molten fat of this spring.  The bubbling fat immediately begins to render your flesh.  Perhaps this wasn't a good idea.
You stand up.
Hp: 0 (500) Gp: 50 (50) Xp: 1364
You jump into the fat spring.
Someone says: MY, WE'VE BEEN A BIT CARELESS, HAVEN'T WE?  SHALL WE POPPADOM TO THE NEXT DIMENSION?
You turn and see Death standing behind you.
Death says: PERHAPS YOU SHOULD TAKE A NUMBER,  WE ARE BUSY TODAY.
Death says: DO YOU HAVE ANY LAST GOOD-BYES OR IS IT STRAIGHT TO THE AFTERLIFE?
Death says: I SUPPOSE YOU WANT TO BE ALLOWED TO STAY, DO YOU?
Your skin is burning from the boiling fat.
Hp: 0 (464) Gp: 45 (50) Xp: 45
Your skin continues to burni[sic] from the boiling fat.  Blisters are beginning to form.
Hp: 0 (464) Gp: 48 (50) Xp: 48
Your skin is burning from the boiling fat, turning black over nearly all of your exposed flesh.  You think you should leave quickly.
Hp: 0 (464) Gp: 48 (50) Xp: 48
Death says: I REALLY DON'T LIKE DOING ALL THESE FAVOURS FOR YOU PEOPLE.
Death says: I MEAN, WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
The heat and pain of the boiling fat are too great.  Finally you expire and are deep fried by the fat.
Hp: 0 (464) Gp: 50 (50) Xp: 51
Death says: HOW ABOUT I JUST LEAVE YOU HERE?  NONE OF THE GODS WILL TOUCH YOU WITH A BARGE POLE.
Oh, interesting. That last message looks like the one I got when I died... maybe after a certain point it's autodeath regardless of hp? I don't remember that happening when I tried it, but maybe I got out immediately... or maybe it only happens if you die from jumping in, not staying in too long.
Also rather strange that you managed to use 5 gp after dying. --Ilde 03:25, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
I guess the lines appear regardless of whether or not the players died as soon as they jumped in. Oh, and I fiddled with my description but took that bit out of the log. (It might also explain the 45 Xp.) --Tabs 6:09, 13 November 2010 (UTC)
