You start the session with just 6hp, you keep going into danger and it doesn’t matter if you have just 2hp. You keep fighting new battles and take major risks.
Beholder, Illithid and masked assasins leave a bloody mark on your sword and arrows. You fought a demon sorcerer, stole him his eye (that is also an artifact).
Then, you find yourself in front of the death’s gates. It’s all frozen, in a dark valley below restless spirits wonder around trapped in their decomposed body. Those who have found piece are just spirits exploring beautiful snowy mountain.
Your are just a mountain brigand (ranger) turned hero, but you have things to do, unfinished business and promises to keep.
And you have cheated death!
