Used in some AD&D circles. It comes from a book of wild surge
results 286 being instant death to the caster right now!! No saves no resurrections no anything just immediate and final death.Usually reserved for idiots who think that dieing is something that only happens to "other peoples" characters.
D.M so now that I have totaled up the damage from the burning mage tower that fell on you while you were trying to loot through the spell books that were on fire after I
