The ancient practice of achieving sexual arousal and even climax via near death experiences. To this day, the only remaning practitioner of this art is Thom the Dragonborn. For him, the holy grail of Tantric Death is reaching 1 HP, a feat that he has yet to achieve. He has come close just once (Episode 12 - Not Quite Through the Woods), as a fearsome orc attempted a decapitating strike that would have brought him exactly to 1. This blow was intercepted when a well-meaning Aludra the Dwarf came to his aid at the last second. Thom has never quite forgiven her.
