Your worst death?

I suppose there can be many categories for this:

1. YASD -- You screwed up big, you paid for it.
2. Unavoidable -- You never did, nor could, see it coming.
3. Totally Absurd -- Just so funny, you laughed on the death screen.
4. I was so close! -- You put up a good fight, against a unique, or the big P himself, but bit it in the end.

1. I found Anduril (sp? 3d5 longsword with fire brand) thought I could kill a room full of ogres surrounding me. Never did find a weapon that good again yet. Also the countless times I had -tOther, or ?teleport or _teleport, forgot about it and died because I couldn't escape.

2. Unavoidable - Netherbolted through a wall by a ringwraith I couldn't see

3. I died from a trap after killing something, don't know why but I was just laughing.

4. Similar to #2, my first char to get a boots of speed (it was +8). I was doing quite well, got blown up by a skull druj I think, or maybe it was a ringwraith? One of the two.

I don't remember most of the stupid ones. It's the funny ones that stick in the mind. I've had 3 memorable ones. The funniest is here:

Mine is in a reply in that thread.

My most impressive death was -925 hp, and I really was playing to win http://groups.google.com/group/rec.g...1bd8a3e995a6a9

New dumbest: Very promising with the artifacts I had found, Eowyn + Celegorn, I had good resists, FA, (no poison, but I did have nether!) some speed... life was good. Picked up a heavy xbow of extra might, life was better. Fought Uldor the Accursed, he summoned, put me to 70 hp, and instead of using my teleport level scroll, I USED MY STAFF, FAILED, AND DIED.

1. Wasn't in much danger, but teleported anyway just to be safe.

3. Obedience.

4. Just a couple more rounds as long as I don't fail the heal ...

Your worst death is usually your most recent one, as the pain numbs over time.

1. http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=6999 . This was only my second ever NPP character and it was going too well. I foolishly read a scroll of Summon Unique and got one I really couldn't handle...

2. My most recent death. Recalled next to a dragon of some kind who woke up and slowed me. Cast teleport self to escape and landed near to a player ghost who instantly paralysed me with a spell and then splatted me.

3. http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=6806 . Going for a low turncount had decided to take on Morgoth without a key resist and got instakilled by a double move before my first attack...

4. http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=7730 . More than "so close" - killed Morgoth and died in the same turn.

If I recall that thread correctly, we all thought that still counts as a win most epic win evar, imo.

If you're going out to free the world of Morgoth, then technically you succeeded.

Agreed on all counts.

2. Descending the stairs for the first time, with a floating eye on adjacent grid that wakes up and paralyses you to death has to be the worst. Has happened to me more than once, but I dont have dumps

The thing about this is: you don't have anything invested in the char, so you don't lose anything. Any deaths on dl 1 are (or should be!) meaningless bad luck.
