Yes, that really hurts. I lost my first 'most-promising' character to a grand master mystic who also heavily-stunned then knocked out. I assumed free action meant that couldn't happen, but boy was I wrong. If it makes you feel any more hopeful, death-from-stun in my opinion is the last 'gotcha-death' to discover. I still give grand master mystics tremendous respect -- that dude gave me scars for life, lemme tell you. Plasma hounds for you will probably be the same.

It's pretty safe money to bet that given a player who has won the game, that player has lost a character to plasma hounds and to a GMM.

Yes, everyone experiences the Litany of Deaths:

1. The first paralyzed death.
2. The first slowly poisoned to death.
2a. The first single-shot poison death.
3. The first Grand Mother Fucking Mystic Death
4. The first pack of plasma hounds death
5. The first I teleported into a shitstorm death
6. The first Dracolisk/Dracolich death
7. The first mana storm death.

And so on. You can even throw in there "The first oops did I just friggin *starve* to death death."

Hounds in general make me uneasy. Packs of breathers man. They breathe to ruin your day. And they travel in packs. Forget about it.

'Maggot's dog death' should also be on that list, I think
