Scene of death

I was looking at some character dumps and there's something missing that would be nice to have: a little screenshot of the death scene.

Here's a little excerpt from a PWMAngband character dump:

Code:
> The Rat King bites you.
> You are more poisoned!
> You die.

Killed by The Rat King.

  [Scene of Death]

.........?

Sil does that too. Worth thinking about.

In Sil, though, normally a very small radius around the player is sufficient to identify what is going on. In Angband things breathe and cast spells from further away.

(That said, I like the idea, too.)

I support this idea. From a non-programmer perspective, it seems like it would be easy to implement to just dump it into an image file along with the last few lines from the action log so you can see that Mana Storm kill you by exactly 1 hp.

It's even better with colors. Check for example: http://mangband.org/Main/HighScoreCh...shoe-755994310

Perhaps, for this to work, the final scene needs to have esp engaged (after the fact) and the scale adjusted such that whatever did the actual killing was on the map.) That way you could see what did the killing, the lay of the land monster-wise, and maybe even that flash of acid that actually killed you, so you can think "I'f only I'd ducked."

It's not a matter of ESP, scale, or range. You don't need to worry abut leaking information to a dead @. Simply display a "god mode" 80x24 map that is centered on the (integer) midpoint between the PC and its killer (if such exists). Might have to shift things if this puts it near an edge or corner of the dungeon; such a shift will always include both characters of interest.
