aeneas is on a distinguished road
Were you playing a human? I'd stay away from humans as a beginner, for a number of reasons. There isn't much that should be killing you at 700' that can't be seen with infravision. But Pete is right- means of escape is _the_ key tactic in Angband. For instance, if you have a big stack of ?teleport_level you will never die if you don't put yourself in a position where you can be killed in a single turn.
