Hello RS community :)

I thought maybe if I could start a simple thread here it would be a good place to share our funny/embarrassment stories about our first death in the game.

I'll start with my short and sweet story. About 18 years ago I ran into a highwayman somewhere south of Falador and I have thought he was an actual player by asking him to spare my life several times. I couldn't fight back because I have had a starter gear, and couldn't afford a good gear at that time.

Now it's your turn! :)

I think that mine was the level 20 dark wizards. I quit for a couple days thereafter out of confusion and frustration and wouldn't have returned if my sister (whom had played) hadn't explained what actually happened :P. This as-well is to what felt as-if decades ago.

My story is basically the same.

I don't remember what I was doing, but I was jumped by a highwayman at the Draynor crossroads back in RS1. I managed to kill him though and thinking it was a player I exhaled and tried to calm myself down. But then he respawned and killed me.

For this returning account, it was Hollowtoof in the Goblin Raids. He was stronger than I had expected.

For my first account, years ago, I was fighting the Goblins in Lumbridge. I was using Ranged and accidentally hit a spider. I ran behind a building because I was very low on health. That darn spider hunted me down and killed me.

Scorpion pit Al Khrid.

Was getting a tour of RuneScape with a friend and he took me there and I got killed.

First death I'll never forget.


Sounds similar to what happened to one of my earlier alt accounts, except my experience was in the Wilderness. It wasn't scorpions, but rather my RS friend. He asked if I'd ever been in the Wilderness...No, I hadn't. He promised to protect me. Yeah, right. He turned around and killed me.

You were lured into the Scorpion Pit by a RS friend, I was lured into the Wilderness by a RS friend. Both of us died because of a RS friend.

I think the first time I died was very early on, just wandering around exploring and thinking "I wonder what's north of Varrock?"
Answer: Wildy :P

Luckily I wasn't carrying any items.

i was killing goblins, i died and being 13 and only really playing games where if you die its "game over" i made a new account as i didnt want a death on the account. (the account i made was this account) later i realised having a death on the account didnt actually do anything apart from losing items, but by then i had surpassed that account so carried on with this one.

I was killed by a Level 5 Goblin I think in 2005. (It may have been Lv 10/12 at the time)

I remember that morning I had just said, "I haven't been killed at all and I am doing so well against npcs!" Which I was killing men/women in the Blue Moon Inn.

Later on in the day, I was in Lumbridge and I was doing Cook's Assistant and asked where I got an egg. They took me to the farm north of Lumbridge, on the left side of the river and was killed by a lv 5 goblin.

Fun Fact: This is when I thought 500gp was a lot lol

AFter a very long journey from Lumbridge bridge, all the way east around Varrock without even noticing it was there, following the Wilderniss ditch I tried to jump over using the 'jump for joy' emote (I had no idea what I was doing back then), found 9 coins in Edgeville which I immediately banked, got halted by the Ice Mountain and was forced south, went through Falador, ended up in Draynor Sewer where a zombie killed me.
I didn't know where I ended up respanwing since I hadn't been inside the courtyard of Lumbridge yet.

Only later when journeying some more did I recognise those places and was able to figure out where I actually went initially.

He packs a mean punch indeed.
