What's the opposite of a Wizard?  A Barbarian!  Two promising barbarians were killed by things they shouldn't have angered, but eventually one became buff enough that he could SURVIVE angering things he shouldn't have.  Once he got that far without happening to genocide anything, he took that on as a voluntary challenge and succeeded!  There were many times when he regretted choosing that option, though.  Another challenge he completed was not changing form, which is not much of a problem if it
doesn't happen accidentally.  Time to rest...

Goodbye Ferret the Demigod...

Who were Ferret’s next of kin?
Sadly predeceased by his cat Mewlix, he left his remaining possessions in the Mazes of Menace. Adventurers are welcome to go looking for them.

No wife or kids or sibs to mourn him?
Well, his eldest brother accidentally Cleavered Yeenoghu (don't ask), and the brother after that was tragically killed by the Minetown Constabulary over a probable misunderstanding about property damage or something (don't ask). But other than that, feel free to ask. His distant relations are all very proud of him.

They should be proud of him!
