Bagplant is on a distinguished road

(In older versions creatures used to try and summon anyway, so you'd get spammed with summoning messages with no result).

Anyway, my 'whoa' moment: (although this was more stupid/lucky than awesome)

Playing a paladin, fighting dragons/demons while partially surrounded. I've been healing up when I get low, but leave one a bit too long and then fail on the cast attempt. One of the dragons chooses that moment to unleash a big breath on me, I think single resisted lightning or something of the sort. This takes me down to 31HP and I'm looking at a <more> prompt, knowing that two or three other creatures in range of me have yet to move. I hit space bar a few times, fearing the worst. There are no more breaths, just a lot of melee attacks, and I come out the other end still alive and on 3 HP.
