My first good character. Paralyzed and Dead.

Hi everyone, this is my first post to the forum. My first good character has just died. Very sad. Suddenly paralyzed and surrounded. Not even sure what paralyzed me, I think it might have been a trap. I've played a bunch of characters who mostly died early and stupidly (e.g. trying to melee cave spiders in the middle of the room). But I was finally doing well! I had gotten my first two artifacts ever! I'm excited to start anew, I think I'm finally becoming competent at this game.

That would have been the Homunculus.

Notice, too, that you can make your dump format properly by putting CODE tags around it (with the # button above the message box) like this:

Code:

I wish I could count the number of good characters of mine who've been killed by something dumb like paralyzation...frustrating feeling isn't it?

Paralyzation is only really frustrating when you go down or up the stairs and appear directly adjacent to an eye. You can do absolutely nothing, unless it misses it's first attack. In any other case it's usually the player's fault, thus avoidable. At least in the shallow depths.

I figured out what happened later on. I stepped on a summon monster trap. Summoned a bunch of things including the homunculus.

summoning a paralysing monster sucks almost as much as stepping on a poison stake pit at CL1...

only thing to do is roll a new @ !!!
