Timescape: Journey to Pompeii Death Scenarios

This is an unavoidable spoiler, but here is the master list of possible ways to die in Timescape: Journey to Pompeii. (Since the volcano is going to erupt soon, Adrian will automatically die if he is arrested for anything regardless of whether or not it's an executable offense.)

*touching the donkey in the wrong place with the stick (results in the donkey kicking Adrian, then a failure screen)
*waiting too long before solving the donkey problem (results in a failure screen telling you Adrian was killed when the workers started fighting with each other)
*once you get the knife, using it on anyone (results in a failure screen telling you Adrian has been arrested.)
*taking too long in the Temple of Isis before finding the feather (results in being evicted by the priest, then a failure screen)
*breaking something in the Temple of Isis (results in a harsher eviction by the priest, then a failure screen)
*being hit by a falling tile at the beginning of Day Three (results in the tile hitting Adrian in the head and killing him, then a failure screen)
*throwing a javelin over the wrong wall (results in a citizen being impaled by it, then a failure screen telling you Adrian has been arrested.)
*telling the guy guarding Fructus that you are a Gallic magus (results in him yelling for backup and a failure screen telling you Adrian has been executed.)
*trying to convince the guard Fructus is right (results in him arresting you and a funny failure screen saying "Sometimes telling the truth isn't such a good idea.")
*clicking on Fructus inside his cell (results in Adrian talking to Fructus and attracting the attention of the guards, then a failure screen telling you he has been arrested.)
*touching the rock in Fructus' cell (results in the stone falling and attracting the attention of the guards, then a failure screen telling you Adrian has been arrested.)
*going over to where the guard is with Fructus in tow (results in a confrontation, then a failure screen telling you Adrian has been arrested.)
*not getting the snake onto the branch (results in it striking at Adrian and killing him, then a failure screen.)
*getting the snake onto the branch but not disposing of it quickly enough (results in it slithering onto Adrian and killing him, then a failure screen.)
*breaking something or taking too long in the Temple of Isis before finding the sylphium (results in a furious confrontation with the priest, then a failure screen)
*getting hit by a rock outside Octavius' garden (results in the rock hitting Adrian in the head and killing him, then a failure screen.)
*not catching up to and subduing Statius quickly enough (just results in a curt "You failed at your mission" screen.)

Timescape: Journey to Pompeii Easter Eggs

There really are not any easter eggs in Timescape Pompeii (I was severely disappointed when using the singing bird on the snake had no effect at all--I rarely discover easter eggs all on my own without anyone telling me they're there, and I was so sure that was going to be a sly tip of the hat all the way back to "Colossal Cave Adventure.") However, the name "Fructus" does mean "fruit" in Latin, which might be a comment on his fruitcake behavior. (-: All the other characters in the game have actual Latin names, most of them from actual personages who lived in Pompeii at the time of its destruction.
