Not sure how this death happened

I had ~400 HP and the Balrog of Moria was injured
And I most definitely resisted fire....

-399?

Seems a bit much

Doesn't the balrog of Moria breathe fire for 1600?

I'd always double resist anything that high and potions of resist fire are plentiful

There is something unusual going on - he has 3000 max HP, so should breath fire for max 1000, which would be 333 single resisted.

I don't suppose you still have the savefile, do you? If you do, and haven't started another character with it, could you attach it and your randart file to this thread (you'll have to zip them).

My guess would be a cursed item with fire vulnerability.

Most likely this bug, fixed shortly after 4.2.1 was released?

Aha, thank you! I thought it might be something to do with the vElec, but forgot about that bug. No need for a savefile after all.

Lucky someone knows something about the game...

My monster memory says 1000

I usually don't mess with Balrogs at all unless I have fire immunity.
But I just wanted to play with the taunt spell.

It did not work so good.

Thank you.

RIP Semirhage

Going up in flames seems fitting.

It's mathematically impossible to get less than -333 HP vs Balrog of Moria with single resistance and no curse of winter's chill.
