Sustain #stat, Hold Life?

I'm currently playing a halfling rogue, and he has a =Str.

Yet a recent encounter left me with reduced strength and drained XP. I can't recall which mob it was... an undead of some kind I believe. (Didn't notice right away.) (I know, bad form.)

What are the limits on "Sustain #stat" and "Hold Life" protections? Clearly they're not perfect.

It's been a while since I've played Angband, but istr that at least the ring should have protected my little filcher from a Str drain... not really sure about the racial ability.

Hold Life never gave complete protection from XP drain, but it significantly reduces the amount of XP you lose. Stat sustain should give complete protection against stat drain, though - maybe you got hit with a time element attack?

Ahh - good call. I did get ambushed by a Time Vortex on the same level... never saw it but it died anyway.
