I complain a lot on this site that the randomness of the mechanics leads to a lot of, what I consider to be, kind of unfair discrepancies between skill and actually winning the game. Many a game has been spent with one player all but locking-in their preferred victory while at least two other players still aren't anywhere near winning the game. So I thought I'd highlight an example of what I consider to me a pretty fantastic endgame.

Basically, I was playing Amber the Rotlord, charging into the palace with 9 rot; Sana was charging into the palace with 0 rot and a Bane's Blade + 7 spirit; Thane had the first turn against the king and he sported 10 fight + double-stacked Lionheart Breastplates. Of course, Thane won, as there was nothing Sana or I could do to stop him as neither of us drew out banishes, hot rot wines, or strategists, but it was kinda surreal to see three players all in a position to kill the king on their next turn right next to each other in the palace.

Poor Mercurio, though. He had no chance.
This game needs more birds.

That sounds like a really tense end game there! It's a shame you couldn't take out the king first, but it sounds like that game was still really fun! Too bad that in a situation like that there's no sudden death round or something where the character who kills off the king then has to survive against nearby players.
