Ah ... death to lack of free action. That puts a better perspective on it ... it wasn't the ghast, it was @'s lack of preparedness. Apparently the whole resistance thing escaped our attention until now! Now we know.

Well I've not been around this forum too much lately, but Mark and I still play Angband together almost every day.

We read The Hobbit before bedtime. We're both extremely impressed what a tough hobbit Bilbo is. We have dinner conversations about how to get deeper in Angband. We have a safeword and dungeon security protocols. We tell stories about the close call we had with that ancient green dragon. He's writing a book (147 pages so far) about a little boy who has an adventure meeting an ancient multi-hued dragon and many baby multi-hued dragons.

When Mommy shouts, "Bedtime in 10 minutes!" Mark usually replies something like "No problem, 10 minutes in Angband is like 2 hours!" Which is true.

Heck I was around that age when I first playing MacMoria. I also played wolfenstein at that age too and I never had a problem. It was fun.
