Man, that's a bad metaphor, Eddie.

To me (having done it many times), it's more like playing strip-poker with your little sister's dollies.

The ladder is showing my char Artha as the winner.

This is incorrect, probably due to the body count of 105. I killed a player ghost (Jeff Greene the Nether Wraith) in addition to the 104...

So, if there were to be random monsters, how would you like to see them implemented?

Those paralysation YASDs where a small critter nibbles away at you are probably the most annoying deaths. You did well to survive at that depth without FA, even fir a short time.

Big hydras will turn-up in animal nests, and for animal-nest quests, some will be OOD. Combined with some of the nastier hounds (gravity, time etc), animal nests in NPP are dangeous...

Agreed: angband is a game, not a sim. My point remains; keep food. Starving to death at 50' whilst store-scumming should teach a valuable lesson. That lesson is not; remove food from the game.
