...did you instantly hit Quick-Load because you thought it had instant-killed you? :)

I know I did, several times, because the camera angle coupled with your limp character looked so much like the "you just died" effect.

Share stories of surprising sudden death or almost-death here. :D

I did, and to my shame, I didn't even know about Mammoth until recently despite spending 300+ hours on Skyrim so far.

sigris gauldurson the first time around (quest: forbidden legend, the third son who acts like a wizzrobe from zelda mm)

i was playing melee so every time i tried to run up to him i got hit by his shout, and the shouts of his two clones simultaneously, and got thrown across the room. every. single. f***ing. time. lulz would have been had if i was watching that in a let's play but damn that was frustrating

I am happily going down a snowy mountain.A Dragon emerges ( I have deadly dragons on with the hardest difficulty) and kills me and my companion in one shot. **** this. I reload to my nearest save and fast travel somewhere else.

....nah but I remember I was quite impressed because the sound was so awesome and I was surprised that they can do that.

I remember that I got the animation, and was thinking [and maybe shouting] "F%^$! How did I die already?" But then, I saw my toon starting to stand up slowly. In the midst of that I got shot through with an arrow and died.

FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU--

One disarmed me of my skyforge steel sword way back in like the first few days of play. Looked for over half an hour and never found it. So mad.

Weird.. I've had them shout at me but it's never done anything but push me back a little...I guess either they're not finishing the shout or else I'm not close enough?
