Dumbest Death EVER

Just startin to get the hang of the mage. made it down 250' and was lvl 8. At 250' I was feeling really lucky (dungeon message) So i clear the level and head surface. I get back to town, buy as many IDs as I can afford, id 4 wands, sell them, buy the rest of the IDs I need, and woohoo, got a rapier of giant slaying. I was just thinking "why not go ahead and wield it" so I did, and died. I was so into IDing my treasure, I didnt realize there was a battle scarred veteran pounding me. when I look back in the log, he was hitting me long before i got to the good sword. Anyway, always pay attention, even in town.

Go through the trouble of rolling a character, pick up everything you need in town and finally, venture into the dungeon....

...You are engulfed in flames
...You have died

death by firetrap, before I ever saw a monster.

Oh, that's too funny! That sounds like something I would do.

That happened to one of my characters once with a spiked pit.

I've been killed a number of times by using Detect Monsters, saying, "oh, I saw that symbol on the previous DL so it can't be all that bad" and running after it. I finally learned my lesson when it happened to a CL 15 mage.

i think the 'saw the symbol before - die by OOD monster' and 'quaff unID'd potion' reasons in the "WOrst advice to give" thread or something.

i'd say feeling invincible is the worst bit.and getting surrounded by spawners or a horde....

1) prepare to run.

2) prepare to detect.

and last but not the least,

3) prepare to start all over again!

thats my $0.02 worth.
