According to the letter of the law (i.e., the rules),
he's dead. Of course, this is (IMO) stupid, since it
means that someone who's really tired can be killed by
a 2 ST hit. (And remember, there's nothing "magical"
or terribly special about TFT fatigue, the fatigue you
take from running is just as deadly as the fatigue from
spell-casting.) I run my game such that you die if you
take your ST in wounds and you fall unconscious if you
take your ST in some combination of wounds and fatigue.
I think a charitable view of the "fatigue kills" rule
from Wizard is that it was a simplifcation which was
perfectly acceptable in the arena duels that Wizard
contemplates, where out of the fight is out of the fight,
whether you're dead or unconscious. It's a pity this
wasn't changed in AW though.
