Broken Xom one-hit kills from full hp.

I know, i know. I'm not a good player. On the second screen is a fine story of stupid, easily avoides, uncareful deaths. I know that playing a felid is kinda like taking a lot of permanent damage before you even start. I know that Xom is not supposed to be remotely fair and that dying from Xom is DF:Fun.

However.

Xom sandwitching you between two berserk ettins while you were trying to rest, then painting them pink, then paralyzing you? Funny. Xommy.

Xom looking at you and plainly striking you for almost twice your HP in sheer, inavoidable damage, without any intermediates to deliver it? Also discouraging everyone ever from playing FeCk? Also raising the question "what if it happened to ZoFy in Ck stage of his greatfelid challenge - would THAT be counted as breaking a streak and if not, what's the point?"

Me thinks: not fun.

Working as intended imo. Perhaps THIS will teach you to stop trying to get silly "achievements" like this is a Steam game.

Xom is allowed to kill you if you're boring. Try to have more fun.

A beloved toy of Xom.

Xom is Sid from Toy Story.

Felids cannot use chaos weapon so I am not sure what unspoiled player can do to keep Xom happy.

FR: Felid can jump at target and get confused for 1 turn, Xom is amused by stupid bravery.

Xom should still not kill you in a way as boring as "suddenly, you take damage".

rocks fall, everybodyfelid dies

Your intention is that Xom should be in the game but players shouldn't worship Xom? That's a stupid intention.

I don't get why is this "broken". It clearly worked.

Yes. But that jump wasn't confusing Felid.

Re: Broken Xom one-hit kills from full hp.

Id post a mantis bug report. Xom isn't supposed to directly kill you (though anything he summons is more than capable of it).
I'm with tasonir on this one.
