Thats one spectacular death, Agor. Probably didn't feel too good but it's an awesome scene anyway :)

Hehe no problemos.

But jeez, gimme a break, Mouth of Sauron at 1250ft :D

... And I'm the only player who's ever been killed by him... (Well Version 1.1.0 ->)

I was a bit down, sure, but now I'm up and running again ^^

The character before that one got destroyed by Khamul, the Black Easterling at 1400ft ><

You need to use magic mapping scrolls and detect evil staves to avoid these sort of disasters. Or at least give you a chance to avoid em.

The mouth was not summoned probably. Agor was in a backdoor surprise vault. they have 3 main arias. The two on the sides have 8 excelent items in them each. They also have extremely out of depth monsters in them. The inside bottom wall square of each of these is actually a hidden door. The middle section looks like it is safe with lots of walls. Not true. These are actually all doors. So if you try to go in there to pick up some items, the monsters from the other sections will come and eat you!
Anything worth being done, is worth being overdone.

Just to make this clear:

Mouth of Sauron at 1250
and
Kamud at 1400

But yes crazy, and I should've known that the vault was something evil as I had detected the doors, but I'm still relatively new at this game, so don't know all the dangerous stuff, hehe.

in a backdoor surprise vault. I die in that vault attacked by ungoliath, I really start being suspicios when i find 4 excelents items alltogeter.

I find this vault 2 more times, in one i find at 1300 a great master mystic. The other was very simple.

Other vault to take care, is the one that is like a cross vault with 5 monster and 5 excelent items.

Was funny last time i enconter one of those vaults. I reach the vault , 4 common monster..
I kill them, get the gear, and go away very happy , just when i reach the corner, a greater draconic Quiliguly ( that seem the monster that was in the empty place ) , summons 6 Great wyrms dragons around me.

Yep. The Plus Vault is very dangerous too. Especial because its usually open. Backdoor Surprise, Plus Vault and ZoCD (Zoo of Concentrated Death) are the most dangerous Vaults you can find. And if you have ESP you need to detect too.
And never stand close to them untill you know if and how you can get them. They contain often Monsters which can open or leave them. Then you are lucky about time for reaction.

Hehe, tough luck Beholder :)

Anyway, thanks for the tips guys, I think next time I'll ask someone to lend a hand, before I go rushing into something I know nothing about :3

Asking about the monsters usually helps. For instance asking about a purple p or a green P can help alot.
