Worst YASD ever
 
Just lost a level 27 high-elf mage... Found +3 speed boots, armor of resistance, potion of augmentation etc. In general, doing just fine.
About to leave the dungeon to sell some stuff when giant fruit flies started to spawn around me. OK, me thinks, I'll kill time killing these for EXP until scroll of recall kicks in so I have an arrow key pressed down...
Return to town, dash right into lava and before I know what the f**k just happened:

killed on level 0 by burning to a cinder in lava.


Um... ok.
I still love this game

Pressing down arrow keys can lead to all sorts of stupid sudden deaths. ^^

I would force quit and reload if that happened to me.....

Play on angband.live, and you can't be tempted to do that. ;) Though, moving onto lava used to require a Y/N confirmation. Maybe Nick can tell us what happened to that.

It's still there, but only triggers if the lava will take more than 1/3 of the player's hitpoints. I'm guessing that that was not the case, but that the held down arrow then resulted in multiple turns standing in the lava.

Hm, probably best for it to trigger if it would do any damage at all (especially if inventory damage from lava still exists). Not really so much for this particular case but in general to avoid people carelessly stepping onto lava and destroying a staff or something.

It SHOULD trigger the y/n prompt, but it doesnt if you recall and have moved commands queued.
See the "stop angband queuing commands" thread.
