Hobbit warrior found himself on a cavern level. Started fighting a huorn blind to see if I could. He got me low on health so I healed to see how badly I had him hurt--only half his health. So I _Teleported. Teleportation banned! What? Were those gloves I just put on cursed? I didn't see any ?? on them. If it wasn't for 4.2.2 thread talking about levels banning teleport I would have been seriously stumped and would have assumed the game was bugged. Fortunately I had some haste potions. I quaffed one and read a ?WoR. If this was an ironman game I'd be very extremely annoyed right now. Still very annoyed as I wasted a precious speed potion on this nonsense.

Would be nice if the floor tiles were different color or something to denote you are on a teleport-banned level. As it is currently implemented it just feels like a bug.

@Grotug
I'm sort of with you on this. Angband is all about identifying danger and responding appropriately. It punishes greed and rewards conservative play and in depth game knowledge. I've not come across one of these gauntlet levels yet, but I suppose the first time I do I'll find myself in a similar tight spot. I don't think the floor tiles should be different but I do think a new flavour text on entry is necessary... Might I suggest "This level feels strangely oppressive..." or something. If you miss the level entry text then it's your own fault, but at least you were warned

By FAR, it's permanent stat swap from Nexus. (Yeah it's gone in modern V, but it is present in nearly all variants.

Much less dangerous since Boots of Stability were introduced in 3.0. Earlier, nexus resistance was much harder to get.

A sheer number of canines in the game. Wolves, white wolves, wargs and all the Z's waiting you to get into an open room. Nothing wrong with the mechanic, there are just too many of these situations.

Way too many levels start with C-fight or Z-avoidance. I've addressed these feelings before, but it doesn't hurt anybody if I repeat em.

The old version of Amnesia was annoying too - you had to constantly re-ID all your gear. I think that was changed a while back now.

Accidentally windmilling into Ungoliant because I was playing sloppy and thought it was just another black scorpion.

I've been playing lately using the option to have uniques appear in purple. Saves situations like this with Ungoliant and also accidental encounters with Kavlax.

A room full of awakened Hummerhorn on an early level.

A recent Dwarven Paladin was just lucky to stumble his way out of the room and down a corridor branch, quaff a bunch of !CLW successively, and finally get a turn to act unconfused so he could read a ?oRecall.

(Of course he had no protection v Confusion.)

I had this happen to my kobold rogue yesterday. I was really stuck and had quaffed my way through all the CLW, my saving throw was so bad and there were so many of them that every every turn I got confused again.

To escape I drank a speed potion and blasted my wand of wonder confused until a ball spell came. With that little bit of space and speed I quaffed my only potion of CCW and read recall. It was a really tight spot
