My favorite loss...

This happened a couple of years ago. I SO wish I still had the save to put on the ladder.

My first action was to decend the stairs. At the bottom of the stairs was an eye (that immediately paralyzed me) and a group of kobolds (who killed me while I was paralyzed).

My second action was to roll up a new character :/

Thats an infamous occurence that has happened to all of the old-timers. Back then, it didnt take any kobolds to do the killing, too; the eye would do damage on its own and keep you chain-paralyzed till you were dead. This has been changed lately so now it does require a kobold, too.

Having an evil eye right at the stairs is unavoidable, but even if you make it past that point, you can still run into it before you have a chance to see it if you have light radius of only 1 - a torch - and the old saying "buy lantern, kill Morgoth", while omitting a bit inbetween those two steps, was valid advice insofar as it would make sure you had light radius 2 from the start.

Huh, I thought you're supposed to be guaranteed to have the first move on any level. I'm quite certain you do in O. I figured this was why one of the main methods to die this way involves recalling onto one side of a dark room, detecting, and then being breathed on by ten hounds or a drolem or Kavlax or something.

rangers can summon one gravity hound which can breath gravity which can throw you into a room full of plasma hounds.

That also got changed at some point; it wasnt the case originally.
