V has new mimics that don't show up on the monster list. Therefore my last instadeath was walking next to a trapper and it hitting me for 150 damage or so.

Other instadeaths:
It breathes gas
You die
Killed by a drolem (3 times, usually a priest or paladin)

Azriel, Angel of Death breathes nether
You die
Killed by Azriel, Angel of Death (3 times, usually after a failed attempt at TO, or him getting me from off-screen)

(cast teleport self)
The gravity hound breathes gravity
You feel gravity warp around you (repeat 10-20 times)
you die (2 times, teleported into room)

The crebain shrieks
You feel a stirring around you
The death knight casts a nether bolt
The death knight casts a nether bolt
You die (1 time)

I think those are my only causes of instadeath

Hit a teleport trap on DL1, teleported into a disconnected region of the dungeon with no staircases. Starved to death.

I think instadeaths must be less common in Sangband than other variants, as I hardly ever have them - the above is the only one I can remember.

Does V breath dissipate with distance? If not, that would explain a lot.

Are there any variants besides NPP in which breath damage drops with distance?

V breath dissipates with distance in the sense that monsters will take less damage from breath attacks because they aren't at the epicenter. The player is always at the epicenter and takes full damage.

(V breath attacks are just ball spells with a different damage formula)

I'm pretty sure S/O also use attenuated breath damage.

Roughly as I thought.

Man, and I thought fighting the Tarrasque was tough in S! in V, it must be redonculous.

V3.2 on android. About 5 min ago.

Zot the HE Mage level 17 at dl16. No egos beyound boots of stealth and a slay undead dagger so far but doing ok at hitting and running orc mobs as he moved down. Recall escaped a couple times from uniques.

Got a surpurb feeling. Detected traps and lit up room. Rested. The ancient white dragon came aound corrner, breaths, you die...

I hadn't even seen adult dragons yet! There must have been a vault I didn't spot iin that fist detect...

Tarrasque, Huan and Carcharoth are all very tough monsters. (as well they should be!)

Personally I think Huan is worse than Tarrasque because I'm often missing rshard.
