Go To

1A D&D roleplay that kinda stops pretending it's set in the D&D universe halfway through and starts becoming some weird mishmash of HeroicFantasy and [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Gensokyo]] and a whole lot of miscellaneous tropes. You can find the exploits of the party as they venture forth [[ here.]]²²-----²!!''Death Crusades'' provides examples of:²²[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder:General Tropes]]²* BlackComedy: ²* FanDisservice: Seeing the mutilated corpses of well endowed women would kill the libido of most men.²* ForegoneConclusion: The first Encounter of the game was this.²* NoodleIncident: No one outside of the people involved in the session will know what happened after Rissien got pulled into the bushes. And it is much better left unsaid.²* RuleOfCool / RuleOfFunny: ²* ZombieApocalypse: The Cultists lead by the Death Knight and Lucanar certainly seem to be aiming for this goal.²* BarBrawl: Rock'em Sock'em drunks!²* LastStand: We're fighting a huge army of undead, and probably who knows what the Cultist's are trying to raise.²* LudicrousGibs: Chunky Chunky Salsa~²* TheGMIsACheatingBastard: Vincent's done a bunch of stuff to make the campaign more fun.²* ShoutOut:²** ReferenceOverdosed: ²* WhamEpisode: [[spoiler: David, our quirky and love struck leader got killed by a Death Knight.]]²* MoodWhiplash: We go from the Black Baron (stop starin') trying to pimp smack all of us to [[spoiler: David pulling a Heroic Sacrifice against a Death Knight...]]²* WrongTurnAtAlbuquerque: This is how they arrived at the port.²* ShooOutTheClowns: It's been doing this since [[spoiler: David died]], but a few elements try to remain of the silly.²* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Lycanthropy gives them LittleBitBeastly qualities when in their human form.²-->Rissien: "FUCKING TAIL"²* DrinkingContest: This came up during dinner in a dwarven fortress. You know, like every night in a dwarven fortress.²* OurDemonsAreDifferent: Some are loyal to the Gods and some work for the local {{Satan}} analogue.²* BitPartBadguys: Most of the "Seven Deadly Sins" bar Illivar and [[spoiler: Vincent]].²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Heroes]]²'''David [[spoiler:Mc Carthy / Dredge]]'''²* ChivalrousPervert: He has lewd drawings of Millet. Of course, when a drunk fool tried something during Millet's act, he was ready to run him through.²* SpoonyBard: It's his class, and he's also a Chivalrous pervert. Someone that is completely true to the name, perhaps?²* CombatMedic: He's a healing swordsman.²* LetsGetDangerous: Once he stopped insulting undead he kicked ass and took names.²* LamePunReaction: The pun was so bad that he forced a zombie to kill himself for hearing it.²* BerserkButton: For some reason, he's fine when any other girl is insulted. However, when someone insults Millet, he gets serious...²* BreakingSpeech: He gives on to the Valkyrie who dared insult Millet.²* CompellingVoice: Used it to buff up his allies.²* GroinAttack: Happens fairly often, and David wishes that it didn't happen the first time.²* NeverLiveItDown:[[invoked]] He can't take back what he said, drunk or no. Averted when he was forgiven.²* TakingtheBullet: He got in the way of a Death Knight to save Millet.²* WhosLaughingNOW: He was kind of a Butt Monkey among the group, although respected. [[spoiler: As Dredge, he almost killed Dag.]]²* [[spoiler: CameBackWrong: He's an undead that only wants to see Lucanar's final breath of agony.]]²* [[spoiler: CameBackStrong: Naturally becoming undead has made him much more powerful.]]²* [[spoiler:PayEvilUntoEvil: He acquired several of Lucanar's undead slaves with which to exact revenge on him.]]²* [[spoiler: RevengeBeforeReason: Dredge will see Lucanar dead, no matter the cost.]]²* [[spoiler: StartOfDarkness: Dredge seems to be going into this territory.]]²* [[spoiler: ByronicHero: Dredge is this; David not so much.]]²* [[spoiler: TakingYouWithMe: Dredge very nearly did this to Dag.]]²²'''Rosemary Mc Carthy'''²* ActualPacifist: She gets sick at the sight of violence.²* TheEmpath: She can manipulate minds and emotions.²* TheChick: Pacifist that hates violence, the only physical attack she has knocks her enemies out.²* LoveTriangle: She seems to be developing a crush on Rissien...²* LookBehindYou: She uses Jedi mind tricks combined with this to fuck with people.²* BreakTheCutie: She can't take the killing anymore!²* {{Yandere}}: She may seem stable, but she's definitely not right in the head.²²²'''Dagnyryan [[spoiler: Viscarian]], Paladin of Nathan'''²* StupidSacrifice: Tried to hold of three undead heroes and a cultist when he really didn't need to.²* StoneWall: He ''held off'' three undead heroes and a Cultist when he really didn't need to.²* FoeTossingCharge: He got by just about everything thrown at him to beat Illivar to a pulp.²* CuttingTheKnot: Stopped a swinging log by using his sword instead of letting the Rogue handle it.²* BerserkButton: Never insult his family or loyalty.

Just see the Stone Wall entry for the Badass portion of this trope.²* MadeOfIron Damn. First he Stone Walls against the undead heroes and now he's survives through getting crushed between the ceiling and steel, which squished a paladin at the same time!²* ColossusClimb: Dag did this to get in the face of a giant practically naked woman and punch her in the snout to establish superiority.²* ImprovisedWeapon: *insert Indiana Jones theme here*²* ThePaladin: Of course.²* KnightInShiningArmor: Dag does like the sparkle of polished armor.²* HangoverSensitivity: Only natural when you pass out drunk.²* [[spoiler: IAmNotMyFather: What father? DAGNRYAN HAS NO FATHER.]]²* [[spoiler: ArchnemesisDad: Raid.]]²²'''Arthiel'''²* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Arthiel was one of the elves brainwashed by Illivar.²* BountyHunter: Before she met the group she chased down and turned criminals in. Too bad it resulted in her brainwashing.²* LightningBruiser: First round she's shooting you from thirty yards away, next round she's lobbing of your head. It's useless.²* EvilLaugh: When Illivar was finally pinned she did this.²* [[{{YouCanRunButYouCantHide}} You Can Run But You Can't Hide:]] Arthiel would chase Illivar to the ends of the earth to get her revenge.²* BerserkButton: Illivar. Period.²* ImprovisedWeapon: Arthiel used Illivar's Peregrine Falcon's beak, as well as the rest of the animal, to inflict some of the more unsavory tortures upon him.²* BlownAcrossTheRoom: Arthiel can do this with her arrows.²* EyeScream: Arthiel seems to rather like the phrase "An eye for an eye."²* EyepatchOfPower: Gotta get something to cover the hole where the eye she ate was.²* SuddenlySober: Happened when she recounted a bit of her past while drunk.²* IgnoredConfession: Talking a bit about her past is what led her to becoming suddenly sober.²* BiTheWay: As her revelation of the past while drunk shows.²* LadyOfWar²²'''Rissien'''²%%* FragileSpeedster: Natural affliction of being a Rogue.²* NiceGuy: He was the only one to be hospitable to David after the Bar Brawl.²* GrievousHarmWithABody: Rissien was used as a greatclub.²* DudeLooksLikeALady: He looks really feminine.

Fine, fine, I'll stop.²* HeroicBSOD: She became really unresponsive right after David's sacrifice, but was temporarily snapped out of it when the Priest badmouthed David.²* BadassBoast: After the Priest badmouths the recently deceased David, she goes into a tirade, asking them if "you feel the chill of death creeping into your bodies?"²* TranquilFury: Oh, by the way, her entire tirade is spoken in a monotone voice, and barely even flinches when she gets slammed into the ceiling by the same attack that squished a paladin.²* HeroicBSOD: David died to save her and well... She's been kind of off for a while.²* HeroicSafeMode: Millet's been in this state ever since the fight with the priest.²* PolarOppositeTwins: Mira's the fighter, Millet's the mage.²* UnableToCry: She's like this for some time until she goes into a tirade of all the horrible things that have happened to them since they first arrived at the half-elf village where the place started.²* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist by Her Own Petard]]: Ludical's Invert Resistance sure did turn her Mass Resistance around on her.²²'''Mira Belferes'''²* BloodKnight: "Can't we just get to the fighting already?!"²* BladeOnAStick: She uses a Glaive as her preferred weapon.²* ShockAndAwe: Lots and lots of Lightning.~²* CombatMedic: Someone's got the pick up the slack with David and Donarr gone.²* HangoverSensitivity: Only natural when you pass out drunk.²* PolarOppositeTwins: Mira's the fighter, Millet's the mage.²* DoubleKnockout: Mira and the Duke were the last two still drinking, and both passed out at the same time.²²'''Vhara'''²* FreakOut: Vhara, when it was revealed that she is apparently a Succubus.²* CarryABigStick: Vhara uses a Mace.²* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Vhara was one of the elves brainwashed by Illivar.²%%* FragileSpeedster: Natural affliction of being a Rogue.²* FauxActionGirl: Vhara really hasn't done any fighting.²* HornyDevils: She's a Succubus.
