    The best bet is to lock someone up in iron manacles and drop them in the snake pit.
    Nope. I did that once and the GMs yelled at me cause literally no one knew how to get there to save them.

      So does anyone have any messages to share about how quicksand death looks like, either as the victim or as a witness? Possibly before and after death?

        Probably something like:
        You feel yourself slip into a coma.
        You cannot do that while you are comatose.

          Unless something changed in the last year, you cannot die from quicksand.
          I was stuck in quicksand up to my neck and failed my swim, no shit, 40 times in a row and sunk no further.

          I proclaimed and was told by a surprised GM that I was "just extremely unlucky" and let me out.

          Hidden changes happen all the time, so by all means test for yourselves.

            I have seen it tell one of my characters it was up to his nose before he was rescued. I am still under the impression though that it will currently put you in a comatose state.

              Yeah I'm mostly curious about the mechanics, like what you observe on your screen while its happening, and at what point does your status become dead and what messages you get or if it boots you back to the ooc room after you die or if it chagnes any menu items.

              I tried logging in to find this out for myself but I'm having problems logging in.

                This same thing happened to me, minus the GM save. after the 20th failed roll in a row I assumed I couldn't die from it and just kept spamming swim.
