This is what happened to my first @ who got past DL40

And while we're at it, there's the ever-humiliating squint-eyed rogue death.

And the "held the arrow key down while fighting a pit" death.

Don't forget the slow/time-breather spiral of doom, and the 'my temp +speed ran out and I got double moved' death.

Where the death has gone there will be nothing. Only M will remain.

There are times when I wish the forum had voting for posts. This is one of them.

Adding to the list when you've just killed a CL35 @ and started over and you die trying to run through a battle-scarred veteran in town.

I think i have the best death.

Set base delay to 10. Set *clear -auto- prompts*

Walk around .. Tombstone.

I touched a Eye that paralized me while a mob mauled me. Was dead before i could blink.

Yes, but those 23 coins are terribly important on principle, dammit,v on principle! That money is MINE! (Never mind that I could make it back in two minutes even with connected stairs off.)
