Killed by a Death Sword on dungeon level 4.

Jaeru had already acquired a 'sword of light' and was making short work of the poor snaga and orcs that had the misfortune to be in her path. Then I go to 'pick up' a sword and "the death sword cuts you" "low hitpoint warning" x 5 or so.



DEAD.

That was the first time I ever met a death sword in this variant (or remember meeting in any variant).

Haha. It's a secret.

Seriously it's TinyAngband but it hasn't been officially released in English yet. It should work just fine if you compile it from the svn repository without the Japanese compile options, though. (I fudged it to use the New Angband Sound Collection)

ToME and Entro have Deathswords, too.
Just another kind of mimic. A nasty one, at that.
Don't know if they are in V...

They're a Z creation I think, so pretty much all Z derivatives (which includes ToME and Entro) will have them, but others won't.

AAARGH! Killed again in exactly the same way.

How many characters is it going to take before I catch on.

AFAIK there are no death swords in Vannilla.
Vanilla has scroll mimics, ring mimics, potion mimics, and chest mimics. All of them can cast spells and summon monsters which can be quite nasty.

I've taken to using 'monster detect' a lot. Not bad practise, but must be tough on classes that can't do that easily. (I'm playing a warrior-mage so I'm pretty good melee and spells )

I am pretty sure that my first encounters with mimics - in times long since forgotten - were surprising and deadly. ^^

Eomer, character level 12, just survived an encounter with a death sword.
