Summary 0009894: Xom unpreventably kills the player
Description At XL8 while in good standing with Xom, he dropped 3 ball lightnings right on top of me in an attempt to be helpful. This didn't kill me until next turn, so *technically* he didn't break his promise to never directly kill you, but it seemed like a 100% death sentence that he shouldn't really be allowed to do under the spirit of the law.

Later on in the game it might be reasonable, since I would have more HP and some ?blinking, so you could argue that dying to this would be my fault for mismanaging Xom. But at XL8 the player really doesn't have enough options to survive 90ish HP worth of explosions in a single turn.

Actual morgue link at [^] - I didn't expect mantis to include the , in the url.

IIRC that action is hardcoded to never kill you directly - you will always have at least 1 HP left.

Xom doesn't cast CBL any more. (Edit: and the CBL action was perfectly able to kill the player, Sar was probably thinking of the Divine Lightning effect).
