Just a fun thread to see what or who caused your first character defeat.
Mine was leveling my conj, to 15 for paladin, doing the Giant Gnats in Gridania for hunting journal. On my third and final gnat, my son jumped out from behind a curtain and scared the #^%# out of me. The gnat used my distraction (and laughing fit) to chew the rest of my face off, and thus my perfect game ended far sooner than I had hoped.
Thank goodness this isn't like LotRO, where you get achievements for not dying until level X!
So, what were some of yours?
