What's your most stupid/silly death in MAngband?

Post by PowerWyrm » Fri 22.01.2010, 16:46

Here's what's probably the most stupid/silly death in TomeNET...

http://www.tomenet.net/screenshots.php?id=8

Just a little info... in TomeNET, when inside a permawalled vault:
- you cannot use Genocide
- you cannot use *Destruction*
- you cannot use Teleport, Teleport Other, Teleport Level, Phase Door...

I guess people there love to reroll their characters a lot... or they are simply masoschists.

So what's your most stupid/silly death in MAngband?

For me, the following two beat the rest:
- missing res nexus, a dracolisk breathes and teleports me away... inside an undead pit: http://www.mangband.org/Main/HighScoreC ... 1792873002
- finding a GV with wyrms inside, decided to kill the wyrms for xp instead of genociding the vault... and a dark elven sorcerer cast tele-to and I find myself inside the GV in the middle of all the wyrms: http://www.mangband.org/Main/HighScoreC ... -603987418

My most stupid death, that's easy;

When ThorMag spotted Maeglin at 3950ft and I went AFK.

My most stupid death was... hmmmmm list is long one was before the lists have been created and lice gave XP :)

1. Went to a lice level
2. Went to a small corridor corner
3. Killed lice to earn cheap XP
went to bed


came back and started over a new character

A recent stupid death... hmmm didnt play for a long time... but with Yissa I followed some advise to use fireballs as mage, met gorlim ignored his hits and was only looking on his health and how my fireballs were doing... paafff dead.

I never did that because you would starve to death. Although, I did do that once as a ghost, because that way I would only fight one lice at a time and I wouldnt have hunger to worry about. Plus any level spawns would be far enough away to not come kill me.

Mine has gotta be this one:
http://www.mangband.org/Main/HighScoreC ... -944515550

This was after I learned the phrase 'zoo=never worth it', but before I finally realized that never really did mean never.

I saw some rather juicy looking dracolisks in there that I wanted to fight. I was scared, but I had a plan:
1: make a antisummon corrador with runes and places where they will get stuck
2: lure the monsters to one edge of the vault
3: run back and open the zoo up while they couldn't see me
4: kill dragons

The plan went awry at step 2, when I believe some unseen monster, probably an umber hulk, decided to wake up and open up the vault for all the nastiness inside to kill me.
Anything worth being done, is worth being overdone.

Mine (at least recently) is this one:
http://www.mangband.org/Main/HighScoreC ... 4134452258

I can't believe I didn't notice that I was missing Free Action. Note that I was carrying a FA ring even! It took about ten minutes of standing there paralyzed before they finally killed me. What I *should* have done, once I was paralyzed and knew I would die, would have been to log off and wait a day or two for the dungeon to reset. Back I'd be, ready to wait out the paralyze timeout. In stead I sat there staring at the screen and going "Why did I let this happen?" :-)

HEHE! One of my mages had a death similar to this poor fellow "One Quick Dive". The difference was that I didn't get a turn to react...
2nd line is an incredible optimistical expression.


You enter a maze of down staircases.
Looks like any other level.
You miss the Death mold.
You hit the Death mold.

It was a good hit!

Your Main Gauche (a) was disenchanted!

Your Pair of Soft Leather Boots of Free Action (l) was disenchanted!

Actually I think this is my most silly death ever.

I has ESP, and I thought the purple p was Lorgan. I figured: I can kill Saruman and Lorgan at the same time. Lorgan will die in just a couple of shots. Speed +16 and 3 shots per round with this: b) a Long Bow of Extra Might (x4) (+17,+22) (+1) and these: s) 99 Arrows of Frost (1d4) (+9,+9) {@f1}

Would eat Lorgan in a heartbeat, and also Saruman actually.

It turns out the purple p was Sauron, and the hobbit went *SPLAT!* in a hurry. Very very stupid silly death

The most silly death I ever had in MAngband...

..

Well, there's been a few. One of my favorites, for many reasons is this one: Image

From http://www.mangband.org/Main/Screenshots

The story is - bookless ironman hobbit mage spends a year in town buying discounted supplies, steps down, feels strong, steps on a trap... end of story. I think I actually laughed out loud :)
