I splatted a staff wielding formicide by accidentally eating meat rather than quaffing healing somewhere in depths with 2 runes won.

It seems that you made it out with your SpBe, but for other ones that might try this, I suggest an abusive use of throwing and blowgun. Trog should gift nice needles (confuse and para).
