My favorite early nasty dragon is Ethereal dragon. Those seem to have very large detection radius and they are fast so they are very hard to avoid and low-level tele-other is only temporary relief. They are a bit less dangerous now that confusion is no longer a breath-weapon: getting confusion resist before meeting those first time was luck, but they are still very dangerous.

Yeah, I was two shotted by whatever the fire breathing drake unique was when I was on DL 40 (with a CL33 dwarven paladin). He was well OoD I think (I got a nervous feeling on the level and his name was red.) I TO'd him away once when I was fighting a bunch of other stuff, but figured I could take him by himself - WRONG!

So if you guys come across a nice crispy dwarf on DL40, that's me.

Gnome mage diving very aggressively, at CL30 on DL55, 168 HP. Was in a jam because light and recall had run out. Was lucky enough to find one flask of oil, but still on the lookout for items.

I had successfully taken down some ancient dragons by opening with blue DSM breath and following up with bolt/ball spam. No telepathy, relying on detection to tell what's around. I saw a sleeping white D, and decided it would be worthwhile to take it on. I had rCold, so the maximum damage per move would be around 70.

Fired lightning breath at the white D's detected location as usual, and started casting fireballs (iirc) down the corridor. Then got one-shotted. By an AMHD.

Lesson learned: double-check what big monsters are before waking them up.

For future reference: max damage from single-resisted basic element is over 500. Monster HP /3 = raw breath damage /3 = single resisted damage. It takes great wyrm or some unique to get that much HP though.

In ToME 2:

My Troll archer (level 17) is doing his first lost temple quest for Tulkas. He's a bow-master, but is temporarily wielding a (+5, +4) sling that he found in the weapons shop. I figure he'll forge some ego shots from rubble during the quest.

So, bumbling along and handily slicing through all the leveled Orcs and whatnot with my Tulwar of Westernesse, I happen across Vort the Kobold Queen. She's a few spaces north of me. Hmm, leveled up because this is a quest; but I have some artifact arrows I forged earlier, that should do the trick...

Slice slice slice, there goes her escort. Aim. Fire! Oh wait I'm still wielding sling, and just took a step towards her instead. She closes the gap, shouts some insults, and hits me thrice... Dead.

Whoops.

I wasn't at a depth where Wyrms appear. I assumed it was an Ancient D (with a 212 damage breath attack)

Another reason why I am playing with tilesets (besides taking care of my eyes ), different creatures are easier to distinguish.

I use ascii for that same reason. How odd is that?
