I don't think I have survived 0 hp myself, but I've heard about it.

In Hengband, when I was trying to "play faster", I did the Vault quest pretty early (L15? 17?) with a ninja and got blasted to 0 HP before getting out with Sting. It was exciting :-)

Getting poisoned with plenty of HP and slowly watching HP to go away, get to town and frantically phase-dooring around in hope to get close enough to potion shop to get there before poison kills you and then at zero HP it finally wears off...

I'm not sure which is more exiting, getting single-blasted to zero or that.

how about iconic fails?

the sad realization that the mage you've been playing has already had a spell you were using devices for. at acceptable or better fail rates at that.

Don't know, but I suspect it has to do with Adunadphel's "ethereal" move-through-walls nature and Maeglin's outright walk-through-and-destroy-walls nature.

Maeglin is basically a preview of what Morgoth can do, but he shows up earlier (naturally) and can hypothetically show up much earlier due to vaults, while Morgoth will never spawn until you actually go after him at 5000'. So I could see how Maeglin could be considered more dangerous.

I also find extremely satisfying melting pits of evil mobs with a single Dispel Evil.

In NPP variant I have had my scariest moments because it has a monster spell that can bring monster next to you from distance.

There I was, happily adventuring at about stat-gain when *poof* there was Vecna next to me. More than twice my speed single shot killer with ton of HP, I TO it, *poof* there it is again. Time to bail out. Problem is: no *destruct*, no teleport level or alter reality or anything like that. So my only chance of survival is to teleport to stairs if I can.

I teleport, it follows and doesn't kill me, I teleport, it follows and doesn't kill me, I teleport to three steps away from stairs, it follows and doesn't kill me, I move, it doesn't kill me, I move, it doesn't kill me, I move, it still doesn't kill me, I take the stairs.

Easily the scariest eight turns I have ever played any variant of angband.

There must have been GV at that level.
