Now I make sure I have food available when I drink unIDd potions (at least until I've IDd Salt Water).
Yeah, an early Salt Water potion was partially responsible for my starvation - though I still had ~6 rations left at the time, so I wasn't too worried about it.

How about THIS...character around level 8, death knight (Zangband), on the very first trip down into the dungeon. Only had one WoR and it got burned up so I was heading for the surface and got a special feeling on level 4 or 5...I figured it had to be the Phial. So I cruised around the level a while looking, to no avail. I had brought two scrolls of Teleportation for emergencies and already used one at a lower depth.

I can't recall the details but I think I might have read an un-ID'd scroll and it turned out to be Summon Monsters. Nothing too tough for me to handle if I could get them lined up in a hallway, but they were pounding me bad enough that I had to teleport, using my last scroll.

I ended up in a room with a small dead-end hallway going off it and some green jellies that I didn't want to go near because of the acid, so I killed them with bolts, but that took a while. Meanwhile I used up my last food ration...can you tell where this is going?

Anyway, I realized there were no visible doors out of the small area I was in. Started looking for one...no luck...poked around a bunch of the granite walls (that was all there was)...started to get hungry...got scared. There was another room literally one granite wall away, but I didn't have a shovel or anything...but I couldn't find any other doors for God knows what reason so I started trying to dig.


Kept digging still I died of starvation.

Me, too. Marrow, my half Troll warrior, died inches from the general store. It was pitiful.

I never go past dL4 without at least 3 ?WoR, I usually carry 5-7 of them. I usually die in much stupider ways..
