Poschengband. A promising High-Mage with quite unusually good finds at this level - early speed rings, Ringil, very good cloak ... - (http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=16642).
I was showing off for my 7 year old daughter, throwing rockets on some bad guys in Arena. Yesterday she enjoyed an intense fight in a huge wilderness castle full of paladins and ultra elite paladins etc. Anyway, here we are. Me and a spectral tyrannosaurus. Eat this! And this! And ... oops. One breath was all it took. Last thoughts "oh, so they breath Nexus too"

And I used to say to myself 'what's the big deal everyone seems to make about Time Hounds...'

Was on a promising run in Vanilla with standard artifacts, making the final dive for the endgame. Incidentally, the Trident of Wrath kicks ass for a mage, and I was lucky to find speed boots at around 2500'.

Entering the level I didn't detect any down staircases, so after scooping up Isildur I figured 'I'm hasted to +20 with nearly full hp (>300), I'll just teleport.' Yep?

Nope. 13 Time Hounds in an open room, 3 breaths and done.

You teleported for no particular reason?

Well, no good reason. There were a bunch of aranea's and a greater aranea in the immediate vicinity that I would have had to kill or dodge. But the big motivation was just finding the next down stair more quickly, since none were visible within detection range.

Obviously, this didn't work out so well and qualifies as a stupid death...

You were actually lucky. It could have been two breaths and done. One of the side-effects of time is drain all stats (sustains don't help), and stats that are below 18 get hurt bad. Two hits to CON and you suddenly find yourself a lot more fragile than you used to be.

13 Time Hounds in one pack is quite large pack for 3.5 though. You could have had bad luck and got two packs in same place.

My new favorite way to get killed is by getting drawn to LoS of some distance-stunner by pack of blink dogs or phase spiders. You can travel quite a distance in a blink of an eye with those, even getting killed by something that wasn't even visible before jumping started.

"come hither"
"Oh, hello there, pack of plasma hounds"
"stunned, heavily stunned, KO"
You die -more-

My standard banish list on a level I'm going to spend time on once I find Kelek's is: Z, g, v. G if I don't have good sustains, or I see a yellow or red G or anything with teleport level and I'm working on a nice vault. I'll now add S and C .

bad luck

I would say bad luck ... it is worse than my last experience tho. I felt excellent treasures being a melee ranger adŽabout clvl 25 with good melee damage. A room full of "u"s showed up. It took quite some while to clean it out ... just to find a unique priest book *smirk*.

Yeah-huh. My last 4 insta-deaths have been to either those blinking bi..hes, or their cousins the Plasma Hounds.
Zs are number one on my banish list whenever i score a ?Banishment and spot them on the floor.

black market shopkeeper?

Does anyone know the black market shopkeeper? Maybe he's breeding the Zs somewhere in his backyard to make sure the hordes of adventurers visiting his shop always pick up banish and mass banish Equipment
