Since you have res poison, it can't kill you in a single turn. It has a lot of HP, so you don't want to fight it. But you can pretty safely teleport it away, especially from a distance, where its breath is weaker.

Beyond that, I'm sure you can come up with workable tactics.
I'd like to polymorph, but if he can 1 shot me when it doesn't work, not a good plan. Same with teleport other. That's why I kept the teleport scrolls.

Well, my logic is that if he somehow got me from 427 to 237 in one round when it says his attack missed, how much can he do round 2 if he hits?

I'm not seeing any reliable approach but teleport and recall (or stairs if next to them). I'd like to kill it and see what loot it has, but not at all sure it's possible.

It's even worse - I just saw the message that he missed says <3x>. In other words, he took that many HP with 0/3 hits. So he could hit 3 times...

Wow was that close.

I teleported next to two mobs, one a death drake. I killed one fast but the drake was too hard so I had to teleport again with low HP.

Got to a room with several easy monsters and started killing them, in a few turns a big green breath attack hit me - the dragon had come.

I'd cast recall after the first teleport and was waiting for it to take effect.

The third teleport was way across the dungeon next to a few easy mobs but I only had 34 HP left out of 427! But I got out.

Hm, is a rod of disable traps worth it... I've had traps do things like summon really nasty stuff when I try to disable them, so maybe.

I got better boots of speed - +5 instead of +3 - but my weapon shows the same damage each round with either.

For some reason my STR went down to 18/190. I drank a potion of strength and it didn't change.

I'm not sure but just before that I think it might have been at 187 and I drank another and it went up just 3 to 190.

Wondering if I should do anything before drinking another, why that happened. Darn thing cost 24000...

Look at your character screen and see if you have 18/100 for strength, anything above that will be added from your items to bring you up to 18/190 and any further item plusses will get you to the max of 18/***.
