Unhappy 500' (L10) Omens of Death!

Wow, this is new. So what would you do, go for it or run?

So around 1000' (L20), I got a a scroll of aquirement. I decided to save it until I got a few scrolls of deep descent. By the time I was level 26 and at 1300' (L26), I had gotten 3 so after going to town I decided to dive and see what type of item I could get. So that got me to 2100' (L41) where I managed to safely use the scroll and come home with a cute Crown of Light [0, +9] <+1>. Thus, I begun a descent starting at 50' again. I figured I could use some mushrooms of vigor if I could find some and collect a few healing potions and stuff.

Well to my surprise, at 500' I get "Omens of death haunt this place." I'm thinking it's some bug, but I have a rod of detection and this is what I see: 41 unidentified items and some of the monsters I saw at 2100'! (This is my first time to try to post a screen dump, I hope I do it right.)

EDIT: Also note that this is an experimental pixie race with a hitdie of 4 and -5 con penalty.

So here are the scarry ones:
* V - Vampire lord (L42)
* d - Mature black dragon (L36)
* X - Xorn (L36)
* Q - Nexus Quylthulg (L32)

The only reasonable protection I have is a resist acid amulet, I don't have protection from confusion. Here is my current state, note the Mushroom of Clear Mind and Wand of Teleport Other sitting in my home

OK, so I decided to go for it, but first I cast teleport and got away from the area so as to not wake anything up and I'm collecting items from the level. So far, I've found one potion of speed! I guess the only thing that makes this reasonable is that pixies have a +3 to stealth and my defender gives me another +3.

ooh! ooh! I found one scroll of mapping and two potions of speed in the safer areas of this level and it turns out that all of the truely horrific monsters are imprisoned! So as long as I don't do anything really stupid, it looks like I'm in real luck! Oh yeah, the treasure feeling is "superb."

The outcome

Well that was fun! So I did survive and I did open all of the chambers. The Xorn destroyed whatever he was sitting on top of, so I don't know what I lost there. The Mature black dragon didn't turn out to be that hard with a resist acid amulet and where the Nexus thing was, I got a nice sword that made killing the dragon easier as well:

Code:
t) a Zweihander of *Slay Orc* (3d6) (+8,+8) <+2>
     Found lying on the floor in a vault at 350 feet (level 7).
     
     +2 dexterity.
     Slays orcs.
     Can be destroyed by acid.
     Sustains dexterity.
But for the vampire lord, I just drank a speed potion, opened his cell and then did teleport. Then I came back putting some notches in the hallway to hide behind and kept casting detect monsters until I saw him move. Then I hid in one of my notches and rested until he arrived, when I cast teleport again. After this, I was able to come back in the other side of the vault and get the treasure he was sitting on! Unfortunately, this one wasn't that exciting: Shovel of Digging (1d2) (+13,+5) <+4>

So a lot of adrenal, but no actual stat potions or artifacts Maybe that's what the Xorn destroyed, but there was probably no way to avoid that.

Monsters can't destroy artifacts, so you're safe there. Most of your problem is that a vault at 500' has to pass several out-of-depth checks to get nice stuff even on the "guaranteed great item" squares. Those only boost the item level by 20, so basically they're like finding ego items at 1500'.

Also, I hope that those screenshots aren't representative of how you normally play, because there should not be so much space between each tile. Something's wrong with your display.

That's just a consequence of having tiles with increased height and width; the image has been done by making an html screenshot, than whacking the whole thing in code tags.

You could copy&paste vault from vaults.txt and add relevant monsters in. That would not copy the colors though.

Looks to me that this was Pigeonholed lesser vault:


N:27:Pigeonholed

Not that dangerous if you get lucky with those 8-spots, which you did: mature black dragon, vampire lord, nexus Q and Xorn. Nothing like Dracolich or worse there.

Screenshot makes it look a lot bigger than it was.

oh! I see, thanks! Yeah, so next time I'll go back to 8x8 before doing a dump. Yes, that was indeed very fun, maybe just because I got "omens of death" at such a shallow level. And now I know how to approach this in the future, clear the rest of the level first to see what items I can get that would help.

One thing is for sure though, it's easier keeping a pixie ranger alive than a pixie mage!
