    That time I was targeted by an DW Dragonslayer archer in Burg at SL12...
    I felt really clever when I could avoid all his arrows until I fell down to my doom cause' I was strafing him without seing the cliff.

    I've had tons, but i had one yesterday occur while i was running my gravelord through Anor Londo on PtD.

    Ended up getting invaded after killing the Flying Demons before the Silver Knight Archers, worst possible time right...? I'm half way up the platform hiding behind the pillar and i'm close to the corner about to make a run for it, i turn around to keep an eye out for the Invader and i see him using the waving gesture on the platform below me across the walkway.. then he bows. I proper bow back, completely forgetting about the archers raining down on me, and a tiny bit of my toon was past the corner during the bow so... mid bow i take an arrow to the rear and plunge to my death.
    i laughed for about 5 minutes afterwards after exchanging private messages with the invader about it. silly


    ...Needless to say, i've been chopped and screwed by those Archers many many times, but i think this would be the first time i literally get screwed.

    First off: Howdy all. Been reading your posts for a while but just registered. Sorry this will be the long ways to write things out cuz I haven't quite figured out the shorthand abbreviations yet, lol. There have been so many embarassing deaths in my playtime, but these are a few I still remember or were recent.

    1) The Stray Demon killed me so many times on my first playthrough... because I didn't see the side door. I mean we're talking like 20 attempts with a broken weapon before my camera happened to pan across that exit. /facepalm

    2)Nothing specific... but I died so many times in that area of the first Channeler in the Duke's Archives. That Channeler and his stupid crystal buddies somehow always find a way to get me to make a fatal mistake whenever I first get to the Duke's. Now I just dread that encounter every time... They've totally got me psyched out now.

    3) Again, nothing specific... I don't even know how many times I've been pushed off of a ledge by the animation of what I had just killed. I know better.

    3) Most recently I was rushing through Darkroot to kill Sif for his soul cuz I only needed the Greatsword of Artorias made from a broken weapon to complete my achievements. It was on NG+++ cuz I'd messed up and made it from the wrong weapon in NG++ ... anywho, Sif was way more difficult for me than I'd ever remembered and he offed me... on my way back to collect the nearly 3 million souls and 30-40 Humanity I'd been hoarding from my prior playthroughs, my patience got the better of me and I decided not to kill the axeman and cleric and just run for it. Somehow the cleric got some RedBull while at the same moment just beyond Alvina I second guessed my decision to "run for it". The cleric fell down the stairs and blocked my exit while the axeman walked down the stairs behind me... absolute stunlock gankfest. I didn't really need the souls or humanity at that point.. it was the principle of the thing. I knew better.

    4) Not my own death but it made me feel good after that last thing. I was trying to get through Sens as fast and safely as I could to get my Great Sword of Artorias. I was at the top just before the bonfire when I saw that I got invaded. I walked over to the ledge above the bonfire and we saw each other. He was coming at me, was not stopping to bow, and had the look of someone who was not going to fight fair. I was in PvE gear so I dropped down to the bonfire (a la Luke Skywalker in ESB) and ran to the Balder’s little area I had previously cleared hoping for a BSS (I know that one). I just changed my gear and waited. Then this life bar appears in the fortress… invader took like 50-60pts of damage. So double check everything to make sure I’m ready. I see the life bar again only it’s taking massive damage and a message pops up that I’d defeated the guy. I’m like, “wtf…” so I go up in search of how he died … While chasing me, he hit the pressure plates right below the bonfire and was killed by the darts. Got a message right as I claimed his souls from him “that was embarrassing…”

    This is so very true, lol. In my case it is my girlfriend. Last one I remember was she said something right before I was going to attack the ent on that skinny ledge on your way to Darkroot... instead of doing a 1 shot strong attack, I did a jump attack right off the ledge.

    Just a couple of days ago while I was in blight town I was knocked off of the cliff right by the bonfire by a single dragonslayer arrow. I am ashamed.

    I think I caused somone to have thier most embarassing death.....

    it was hillarious.

    In sens and invaded. So im standing on the second bridge where the first lightning snake thingy is and my invader comes across the bridge. I flip the trap and send 3 arrows shooting at him which he blocks.... but he also gets hit by a chain thingy....

    unfortunately for me he falls onto the lower bridge and comes back up. And im hinding right in the door way with a r2 DGM to finish him off......

    in other news i died in Btown before i could get to the PW monster because i got stunlocked by the blowpipe and fly monsters.....

    The Archers in Anor Londo... only that they didn't kill me, I just fell of the ledge in utter excitement of having it made thorugh there the first time. Though I wonder what really caused me to fall, maybe the Silver Knight I fought there just nudged me a bit before falling himself, bastard...

    Another good one was breezing through New Londo ruins on my first character that used the wolf ring. No problems slicing through and then literally on the last ghost all of a sudden I'm taking huge damage right through my shield and my sword seems to keep missing. I keel over, and then it occurs to me that I didn't notice my curse wear off because of the damn wolf ring aura.

    Had a sweet near miss recently in Anor Londo also. Typical run on the silver knight archers, I'm second up so I bang a left at the top of the walkway and head over to take care of the left side archer. I have a whole system for this which works flawlessly for making the knight just aggro on me and then fall to his death, but don't realize my host has run up right behind me so I can't back up. So instead I start a swing at the knight just as he decides to take me up on my offer to jump to his death. I watch on horror as my character's swing tries to track the knight as he starts to fall, dragging me to my death, but instead my character somehow bounces off the knight's shoulder as he is falling and jumps forward onto the lower walkway where the knight was standing, sticking the landing and making it look like I'd squashed him like Mario jumping on a mushroom. Both the host and the other summon start jumping up and down like I'd planned it that way, haha.

    Once I killed my helper that I summoned.

    I was going through Sen's fortress. I ran towards the first lightning lizard guy and killed him. Then I stepped on the pressure switch and ran to the right. All 3 arrows missed me and hit my helper.

    More:
    On the path from Parish to the Dark Root. The second Ent... run up, hit him once, he starts to fall off the cliff, and me being the DERPface that I am, swings a second time and follows him off.

    I was summoned by a player to help out with Sif. I had put my sign just outside of the door, the first thing i do is accidently press the B button(xbox) and jump backwards.
    Down the cliff.
    To my death.

    This happened to me again the other day and I think most have had it happen to them or experienced it with a summon phantom.

    It happens one of two ways, when helping against the four kings.

    1. Trying to be cool and beat the host down into the abyss so jump off the stairs at one of the many places that you can do so and fall down the middle. But for some reason this time I end up walking off to slow and hit one of the platforms on the way down for an instant death.

    2. Jump off into the abyss and then have a quick realization while you are falling that you don't see the little blue boot on your HUD under your stamina bar. Ooops.

    Both have happened to me. Just as entertaining, but not a death. Both the host and I jump off the stairs at the same spot, me right after the host. Both of us land about two landings down with now half of our health. I think death would have been less embarassing for both.

    Playing 'hide & seek' with the Darkwraiths in Valley of the Drakes after I'd drained the ruins. I got one to follow me to the tower with the long ladder (where the seal is) thinking I could take pot shots at him from the top. He followed me up the ladder! I waited by the top of the ladder ready to clobber him. He climbed over the top, I missed, he didn't.

    It took five times before I gave up.
