Help! Trapped by rubble, with no digging tools

I unwisely used a staff of earthquakes to where I'm trapped in a corner and blocked by rubble without a digging tool. I've searched for secret doors to no avail. Is there any way that I can rescue this game?

Haha, I've recently been warned that this can happen. I think you might be doomed to starve, unless you have enough free xp to get song of freedom.
I'm guessing you don't have a staff of freedom or a horn of blasting in your inventory.

The other option is to pre-emptively smith a Shovel / Mattock
My best try at PosChengband 7.0.0's nightmare-mode on

If I'm offline I'm probably in the middle of maintaining Gentoo or something-Linux or other

This is one of the best ways to die.

What floor are you on? If you're at Kemenrauko depth, make a ton of noise and hope that one tunnels to you. And then kill it without dying 😊

wobbly will become famous soon enough
Rubble blocks sound
Buried in ruble is the most amusing way to vanish. If you don't have freedom it's down to pure luck with any last earthquake charges or a kemen before you starve.

Edit: buried in rubble though ruble is hilarious too.

Yikes, I'm a skill point away from getting Song of Freedom. I am at Kemenrauko depth, though, and have some charges left on the staff of earthquakes. Thanks for the info
