Died from auto-picking up an arrow today. Was fleeing down a corridor, had grabbed another stack of arrows somewhere else in the dungeon & all of a sudden slowed at just the wrong time. Is there even a way to step on your own arrows & not pick them up?

Pretty sure autopickup is supposed to consume 0 energy? Have I misunderstood how it works this whole time??

That wasn't the problem. I was at full weight, picking it up made me burdened.

Cruel randomness (+ not having song of freedom) story:

Found Galadriel with an intelligent* Finarfin lass at 200', sailed smoothly downwards. Picked up a strength drain on the way, still sailed smoothly downwards, subtlety and parry and Shortsword of Galadriel - yes, keep them coming, who needs high strength anyway. Bump into web (perception was 10). Be trapped, try to escape for agonizing turns from the shadow spider, drink potions, hope, try again, try staff, but just agonizingly die in the web even seeing the shadow spider in the eye while she is doing the deed. All because you are just not strong enough to free yourself.

* Focus + concentration at start.

Was picking off Gorgol's entourage with a bow, taking advantage of the fact that none would step in to the corridor. Eventually Gorgul does step forwards. Turns out the room behind me had been slowly filling up with clear worms & 1 had wandered up behind me.

playing a feanor smith. found galadriel even before the 100' forge. quickly took parry, finesse, eyeing at subtlety. slaughtering everything in sight. found the second forge guarded by a grave wight. i take a few points of will and go at it with a double-fine glaive. it drained three points of str in as many turns. i dump gear so that i can move an finally kill it. walking to the forge i step on a false floor. i quickly get surrounded by othrod and two orc captains and their hordes, who disarm me. i managed to get galadriel back a few times and gave 'em hell though.

I think your story influenced me.

It's floor 950. My heavy armor Fingolfin Elf is cutting down Smaug. I survive the second blast of fire and pop a orc pot, then a horde of troll guard comes out from the northern door.

Smaug's lair is a small room. I identified a false floor trap on the way in. It was no problem to dance around.

But now, Smaug is fleeing. He's on the door. Directly behind him is the false floor trap. There is a troll behind me and two on my left.

With a final blow, I destroy Smaug and gain my revenge!!!!!

In the same round, the troll behind me landed a blow and battered me onto the false floor trap.

I died to the falling damage into Throne room...............
