Wait what did just happen?
Teaches you importance of speed. Those can't KO you at first turn, they need two.

It's been a good long while, but this particularly one sticks to memory and is definitely the best instadeath I've ever had.

Playtesting Zothiqband:

The Harp of Evil wails at you. You die.
The Harp of Evil wails at you. You die.
The Harp of Evil wails at you. You die.
The Harp of Evil wails at you. You die.

It was wizard mode, so no loss. It's kind of sad that the bug doesn't exist anymore... So basically this unique killed me on the first hit and then didn't stop until its blows were used up. It's fitting that the first and only monster to ever trigger this bug was a mechanism that channels the pure essence of evil and decay. (See The Devotee of Evil by Clark Ashton Smith.)

For the record, it _does_ happen:

Just go retched to death by a drolem out of the dark with my warrior. Evil was detected by staff, I moved a few steps into the open to get at an item, death screen.
No poison resistance yet, about 400 hit points. The one thing I could have done better was maybe to not replace the cloak (+3 stealth) with one of the magi (+2 stealth, rblind).

I dont have a problem with this kind of death though; **** happens.

I dont recall exactly, but definitely deeper than the drolems native 44. Maybe 60 or 70, on the way to bottom. I was worried about the lack of poison resist as my biggest hole left to stopper. Normally I have it covered at this stage.
