Re: I don't love it when...

... When half of the pantheon decides to live in a breakaway shrine on D:9, rather than joining the Temple.

(There are no more altars under me - I was just going for symmetry there.)

Granted it's not much worse than those big triangular vaults where you get 2 or 3 at a time in little rooms spread out. It fits the narrative, though!

Re: I don't love it when...

Oh crap, it's Grinder, I need to head downstairs now.

Oh look, it's Ijyb. Well, let me just Conjure Flame and I can get away down this hallway...

Never mind, it's a wand of acid. Dead in 2 turns with no chance to escape. It's D:4 so no helpful potions, scrolls or anything I could panic with.

Definitely one of my few unwinnable situations.

Re: I don't love it when...

... when my items alone give MR+++ and a V: ancient lich banished my char, at a 1% chance.

"Huh, that old trick actually still works. Enjoy Abyss:5 bitch!"

Also, when a L9 spell works just fine with a 22%-43% fail rate but just waits for that moment you really need it not to backfire - at a 2% fail rate. It will fail. With a disgusting, spiteful regularity.

Have to admit, that's very polite of your character, to make room for the poor distracted hydra so that it can come up the stairs.

...thanks, Xom. Really. That was just what I needed.

Edit: Read a scroll of fear and ran like hell for the stairs. He ran, but came back when I was four steps from the stairs. Read another scroll of fear and escaped upstairs!

This really reinforces that fraud of an incredible tourist brochure, followed by staring in horror at the empty lot where the hotel is supposed to be. I even got lucky with identifying the map scroll. Damn it, game, we're better than this. :(

I hate it when the game begins well, I find nice equipment, think this could be a nice run - and then I turn a corner on D3 to stand face to face with Ijyb, who happens to have a wand of acid.

You block Ijyb's attack.
You hit Ijyb but do no damage.
Ijyb is moderately wounded.

You slash Ijyb! You burn Ijyb.
Ijyb is almost dead.

Re: I don't love it when...

...I get sent to the Abyss by Sonja at Level 13. So far the Abyss goes nicely, because just previously a scroll of acquirement gave me an evening star of holy wrath, and as a Fo I manage to stay in little nooks and crannies to pounce on unsuspecting demons and abominations. But then I get "suddenly pulled into a different region of the Abyss", and where do I land? I'm in the only solid square in a huge field of lava! Since TSO gives me a nice shine, it won't take long until every demon and its brother will come at me from all directions...

  Code:
You kill the sixfirhy!
The Shining One accepts your kill.
You feel better.
You start resting.
You are suddenly pulled into a different region of the Abyss!
Why would you want to do that?
Okay, then.

...when I dare to play another Octopode game, and I make it to the lair without finding a single ring - not even a bad one. And I also did not identify a scroll of blinking, so when I turned a corner and tried to stare down that huge hydra, the game was basically over.
