Knockers

Well, I just lost my best character to date, a 48th (virtually 49th) Troll Warrior, "killed on Level 73 by a Plasma hound." First experience with the message "You Have Been Knocked Out."

Jack Straight the IX, as his mother named him, went along for a heck of a long time before ever finding any interesting or juicy item, but finally began finding some good stuff. This, combined with troll warrior hit points, allowed him to clean out some vaults. He found three acquirement scrolls during the course of his life, but two of them were crap.

This is as deep as I've gotten. His major problem was a lack of ways to heal. Heal and *Heal* and Life items were pretty far and few between. As a result, he only had a limited ability to stand up in combat against Big Guys, also because his AC stagnated in the 170s.

His combat was also fairly stagnant. I was never able to get him above 400 damage (being a newbie, I don't know how good weapons eventually get).

By the time he was in the 60s and 70s, he was basically a walking porcupine, loaded with all sorts of items just to allow him to survive, with rarely more than two free slots.

Here is the character:

His combat was also fairly stagnant. I was never able to get him above 400 damage (being a newbie, I don't know how good weapons eventually get).

By the time he was in the 60s and 70s, he was basically a walking porcupine, loaded with all sorts of items just to allow him to survive, with rarely more than two free slots.
The knock out happens when you are "too much stunned".
The "Jewel Encrusted Crown of Numenor" could have, if not saved you, at least bought you some time...too bad it was in your home inventory

400 damage it's not something to be too excited about, considering the strength.

The "walking porcupine" status, as you name it, and the lack of healing, should have hinted you to not go *too much* deeper, IMO, for the RNG was kind enough to let you survive quite long although the equipment.
OTOH, the rewards get better and better the more you go down, so it's a bet.
Well, this time you were unlucky. It happens. Don't make this let you down too much...

Now be strong, and make Jack Straight the X revenge his father

Yeah, taking on a group of plasma hounds where they can all breathe on you is really tough, especially if you aren't immune to stunning (as you found out).

In Angband the best fights are often the ones you avoid. It took me awhile (and many of these types of situations) for me to figure this out.

I had only faced plasma hounds once before and easily dispatched them, so I was not expecting what happened to happen.
