She's Done it Again

The Glassblood Warlock in the ECUWoM game masterfully read and loopholed a demonic contract, and then killed the Ice Demon's material form while it still owed her a 'favour', and it cannot harm her while it still owes her.  She levelled up to 10th and is pretty terrifying in a combination of flagrant disregard for safety as well as her excellent timing and wild rolling luck.

The wet-work team (still) trying to get Captain Buck Rodgers' Starfighter from off of a large ship were stymied by a decontamination chamber leading to/from the hangar where it is located, and were attacked by eight armoured, and blaster rifle armed troops who were rolling criticals.  EC has an interesting armour / defence rule, and each layer of protection was rolled in the hopes of bringing each critical first down to a regular hit, then halving or perhaps even negating the damage.  One PC went through all but one of their re-rolls (an elemental blood power) to try and avoid death, including providing a re-roll on a survival roll to the other PC.  In Buck Rodgers TV series fashion, they wake in a mood-lit medical lab with a sardonic butcher as doctor urging them to struggle so she can dissect them.  They are to be presented to the space pirate lord who operates the ship.
