Just plain stupid:
Code:
> The Demilich magically summons an undead adversary!
> 3 Liches are destroyed.
> 3 Archliches grunt with pain.
> 3 Demiliches grunt with pain.
> The Black reaver grunts with pain.
> 2 Master liches grunt with pain.
> 3 Demiliches are immune.
> The Black reaver is immune.
> 2 Master liches are immune.
> 2 Archliches are immune.
> Feagwath, the Undead Sorcerer invokes a mana storm.
> The 71 gold pieces worth of silver is destroyed!
> The 123 gold pieces worth of gold is destroyed!
> The War Hammer is destroyed!
> You die.

Tried out a Staff of Dispel Evil. Didn't notice, that someone stroke back.

It would have been completely avoidable. If I only had teleported or healed. ^^

As I said: Plain stupid.

It's an entirely misleading title. Maybe a disclaimer* is in order.

Alternatively, the staff judged you to be evil.

Heh. Reminds me of the Bar Door spell (in Sangband only perhaps?) and door barring in general:

Do not expect this action to be worth the turns, let alone the mana, invested in it when it is used against monsters that can unlock doors, break down doors, or even just look disapprovingly at doors, or, more generally, anything worth the effort of trying to restrain behind a door in the first place.

Which is why my first item squelch in almost every game is spikes. I have never found them even the slightest bit useful. They aren't even worth lugging up to sell.

You can throw them for a tiny bit of damage. I've used spikes to kill floating eyes or to finish of fleeing foes, saving my oil and ammo for later.

Just got killed by a nether wraith... on dungeon level five. Wasn't quite instant, but it was pretty dang fast. Got exp-drained out of nowhere, detected invisible expecting an OOD banshee that I could try to run from - death.

Guess that explains the 'superb' feeling...
