Question on a locked situation

Hello,

I am currently trapped in a small room:

Code:

I have searched in the room many times, and no secret doors are found. I do not have any digging tools. The only escape tool I have is scrolls of word of recall.

My question is, what if I do not have any scrolls that can take me out of this room? Do I have to kill the character and restart?

.. i dont understand. There is a corridor, can you go in that direction?

Are you blocked in by the rubble? In that case you can (T)unnel through the rubble.

I think the answer is yes. Presumably you triggered a block fall trap, which is what locked you in.

How do people feel about the fact this can happen (if rarely)?

Yes, that was exactly what happened.

Not good. I know having no escapes is almost a death sentence anyway, but we shouldn't make it an actual death sentence while the character is perfectly healthy.

Basically one is already forced to have a source of recall in their inventory for the whole game anyway. The fact that one can get locked up like this does not change anything.

I disagree. There is a reason for digging equipment being available. Failure to carry it, or a substitute in the form of a heavy weapon, ring, wand, spell, or certain rare artifact weapons, should not be rewarded. If you're @ is deep without it, well that's the same breaks for going deep without rPoison or Free Action, and is the risk that was taken. If shallow beginning depths, well, that's the breaks and not much time investment was lost.

My argument is that it's still fun while you die stupidly due to not playing well (or taking a calculated risk on purpose).

This situation looks just not fun at all, in any way.

The OP is carrying scrolls of Recall, so they do have an escape.

Sil has this in the form of Grotesques. It is a feel bad way to lose, but also fair. I wouldn't change an otherwise interesting trap over this possibility. It's rare & you have to have done something wrong. No escapes & no digger is a good way to die in general.
