About that special feeling, I do not remember ever finding other artifact on early levels but the Phial. "Special" message was always, "ah, the Phial" for me.
Yes, I did that... I seem to remember that you could reproduce the same drop if you took exactly the same number of turns from the save point, so you could try to quit then go through the same sequence.

Yeah...I just got that insta-death feeling, too.

dLvl 2, 1491 standard turns used. I haven't even been on the level long enough to get a feeling as to whether there's anything worthwhile on it.

From my messages window:
You see an Azurite Ring {??}.
You have an Azurite Ring {??} (h)
...and then I put the ring on:
You feel strangely quick.
You have learned the rune of speed.
You are wearing a Ring of Speed <+12>
My doom is foretold.

Morgoth, here I come!

Well, anything with speed (esp. +10 or more) is one of those game-changing items that just improves survivability (and damage output!) massively, so I'd say those items don't necessarily incur the wrath of the RNGod.
