I hate ghouls
 
HT warrior was developing nicely, except he had not found a single object of free action. Somewhere below dlevel 25, a single ghoul manages to surprise and paralyze him. Then it's time for a lot of more prompts until the final "You die" message. One was not a problem, but in the end there were 7 of them taking turns in paralyzing the poor sod.

Being turn based really rubs it in your face how utterly stupid your last action was when you clear -more- prompt after another and watch your hit points slowly crawl down from 300+ to 0-.

Lesson learned, I hate ghouls. :mad:

This reminds me of one of my top three rgra posts

So I there I was, rapidly approaching 1500' without Free Action, as is
often the case.
And I ran into a group of orcs, coming around the corner.
First a bunch of black orcs...
You hit the Black orc<4x>
The black orc dies.
...
Then a bunch of light blue orcs.
You hit the Uruk<4x>.
The Uruk dies.
Then their boss, the orange orc:
You hit the Carrion Crawler<4x>
The Carrion Crawler hits you.

Tiles users are so missing out.

LOL@Pete Mack. :D Yeah, that's just not even fair. You must be diving super quick if you are not finding FrAct by 1500'. It's the one thing I almost always find by 1000'.

It was so worth it though--immediate outrage followed by much laughter.

Maybe I'm just unlucky, but I often don't have Free Act until around DL30, and tend to take about 1.5 to 2x as long as you to win... Then again, I tend to spend about half of my turns scumming 97 and 98.

Once I remember doing an equipment shuffle to take on the last uniques, won and then posted the dump on the ladder. Looking at it afterwards, that character didn't have FA. Oh well, that's what Saving Throw is for, right?
