SUPER ANNOYED at this death!!! lol

I've never been entranced by a horror before, so I didn't even know they could do that. (I usually have Inner Light by the time I get this far.) If I'd had a bit of will, this probably would have gone differently, but basically I accidentally grazed this square and then just insta-died from full HP. :(

Obviously that's very low Will for this stage of the dungeon, but monsters with a damaging attack that can entrance are indeed potentially scary, and we've wondered whether they should change at all. Do you think this death was unfair?

Not really. I would have felt it to be unfair if it was "lurking" around a corner in a hallway, and I had no idea of knowing it was there before walking next to it. This one was right in the middle of the room -- it was my fault for approaching it. I didn't intend to walk right next it, I just wanted to see if I could shine some light on it -- but then, I fatally miskeyed.

I simply forgot that Lurking Horrors start appearing at this depth, and I certainly didn't know that they could entrance (or that they were dark, for that matter). Had I known the thing had the potential to be an H, I would have just skipped the room entirely.

Still, I've always felt like these sorts of losses are just boring. It's one thing to be heavily poisoned, or cut and bleeding, because then you have to weigh decisions -- should I stop to heal, or should I risk bleeding out and focus on escaping? Deaths to paralysis have always irritated in me in all roguelikes. But that's just me :)

Are Lurking Horrors always alert?

Normally paralysis (entrancement) in Sil only lets you get hit once, which snaps you out of it. We've had a few times now though when a character has died from a loop with one of the handful of monsters which can entrance with its regular attack. I agree that boring deaths are bad.

No, lurking horrors shouldn't always be alert.

It might be neat to be immune to entrancement on the turn after you snap out of it. If I'd had one turn in between entrancing blows, I'd probably have quaffed a !Quickness and fled -- which would have been exciting, not boring :)
