The moment where Nathril grabbed Richard's medallion and cried out to Kiri-Jolith was one of those wonderful moments in D&D where my PC surprised me. As someone who's been playing this game since he was about 7 years old I've seen a lot PCs and NPCs die. I never expected such a dramatic reaction from Nathril and frankly, in the moment, I surprised myself with the reaction to the situation. I had never planned one of the gods taking such an active role in the campaign (and really Richard's dying was all in the dice - I hadn't planned it at all), but it turned out to be a pivotal point in the development of the character. After that the gods started taking all sorts of interest in the storyline. This session really affected the direction I was taking the story a lot.

OOC: Aww, my first NPC death...how cute! Seriously, I had no intentions of going down the clerical path with Nathril. In fact, it didn't even occur to me until quite a few sessions into the game. Nathril grabbing the medallion was more of a result of my own reaction to Richard's death. I couldn't believe this (fictional) dude I just met was already dead! At this point in the story, Nathril is just a fighter with a shiny bronze medallion.
This is fun to revisit! I hope other people will enjoy it too!
