Once again the session revolved around Magnus McAnthony, the asshole wizard with the d30 choking cloud spell.
Eventually one of the level 0 characters tired of this and stabbed him in the back, ending his reign of dungeon genocide. Then he was stabbed in turn by the other PCs.
Meanwhile the players encountered two really cool villains I'd developed and killed them both before they got to do anything cool.
PC deaths: 5
Treasure obtained: ~1500sp (that's silver standard mind you)
The high lethality has been fun but it's getting old. Only one character still survives from the 2nd session. Most of the deaths today could have been prevented if they hadn't fought each other and if they'd remembered to bring a cleric.

"This choking cloud only lasts for another 2 minutes, so let's just run through the dungeon so we can clear as many rooms as possible before it expires!"
This was after the cloud had already killed three party members.
Three more PCs died before the session was over - the last of them by falling down a hole while fleeing from the dungeon.
No treasure acquired.
