Anyone gain more plev at one kill?

Playing Z 2.7.2 with patch as a gnome rouge.

Code:
You have found 15 gold pieces worth of copper.
You miss the Black harpy. <3x>
The Black harpy claws you. <2x>
The Black harpy bites you.
The Black harpy claws you. <2x>
The Black harpy bites you.
You hit the Black harpy.
You miss the Black harpy.
You hit the Black harpy with your tail.
The Black harpy dies.
Welcome to level 2.
Welcome to level 3.
Welcome to level 4.
Welcome to level 5.
You can learn 1 more spell.

Obviously thrall mode is very different, but this char went to level 27 after his first kill!

ToME is the best variant for this.
Instant level 20 for one kill.

Yeah. Playing as a LostSoul in ToME you can easily get into the teens by scumming until you find a fire vortex or something similar for your first kill. The combination of finding some insanely good weapon, ranged, ideally, and then some amazing ammo.

My best ever in that regard was a character who found a heavy crossbow of extra shots (+15, +15) and then immediately afterwards some mithril (the ones that are like (4d3) or so) bolts of slay evil that were also like (+15, +15). I seem to recall him killing something remarkably powerful right at the start and he jumped straight to level 27 or so. Until the bolts ran out he did a lot of damage. I don't think he managed to escape, though.

I remember how sad I was when I found out that ?WoR don't work as lost soul...

There's also Quickband, where it is quite possible, with the right equipment and tactics, to kill a baby dragon at cl 1. That will get you up to 315 EXP, around cl 9. If you are playing Rogue or Bandit, you can kill a weaker Hound at a preposterously early cl. However, this requires stair-scumming, as in going up and down stairs until you find a junction room with additional stairs going down. With a shaft, you go down 6 level-equivalents in a single turn.

Often with NPPangband.
I always take a quest before diving in the dungeon. That generates a lot of creature that have a lvl bigger than mine in the first dungeon level. So if I am lucky enough, I gain many lvl with my first kill.
Well, often, I do not have enough mana to cast more thant 2 acid balls and kill the creature, so I attempt a third one with 0 mana.
And more often I get killed by a troup of priest or snagas.

I just killed a Brigand at level 1 to take me to level 7. That's the most I've ever done. I walked away from the dogs, too, which was hard to do, but I think I'll try to ignore them for longer now. I normally try to kill them when I'm still level 1 for the 2 level bonus.

My friend, when he was done with his winner, used the One Ring activation to drain all his experience. It took a while --- he had a macro arrangement set up to expedite the process. Then he recalled to level 127. It turns out that a level 1 character with the god kit is strong enough to take on most monsters, so he ignored a breath from a Great Bile Wyrm (acid immunity), killed some L, and gained 36 levels.

Beat that?
