Famous last words

After recently giving the following advice twice I thought about making a topic. (Please tell me if a similar topic already exists.)

So last words often are
  • "I'll save this potion/scroll/charge of..."

There are really nice last words in the learndb, thanks!

Edit: What about the following:

  • "This looks dangerous, but..."
  • "Oh no"

You are poisoned!
*** LOW HITPOINT WARNING! ***
"Fingers crossed this is !Curing."
Quaff which potion?
You gently float away from the floor.
It was a potion of levitation.
You die...

Some more last words I didn't find in the learn DB:

  • "What is THIS?"
  • "I've still got enough HP."
  • "Great 15-runer yesterday, now let's go for a streak."
  • "Hey cat, go away from the keyboard!"
  • "Let's hope it's no mimic."
  • "I should have..."
  • "I shouldn't have..."

...seriously, there was a period where Boris was the sole killer of my mid-game characters, even the ones who tried to flee from him. Now I make certain to kill him in every game I meet him, either right away or later when I'm better prepared. And if he respawns? Awesome, more revenge!

Re: Famous last words

No, I'm not too tired to play.

I'm not in a bad mood and won't just thump tab until I die.

I'll pick up just one more piece of loot, then teleport away.

Although my health is low, if I land one more hit, I'll win this fight.

Ah, so "zc" was blink for my last game.

I know I've got this far through one specific strategy in all my tough fights; maybe I'll try doing something different here.

*hic* Drunk, me? Nooo.

A remaining question is: what are the last words of the best players of DCSS?

Bart actually is at 2nd place in the all-time highscore list, struggling with jeanjacques and 78291 for the 1st place.

Bart has a win percentage of 18% (!) - what are his last words, should he once fail to win the game? Although his last words were not spoken immediately before he died - did you expect them to be "yes" and "no"?

  Code:
 14698 | D:12     | Found a staircase to the Lair.
 14701 | D:12     | Bart: YES!!!
 14702 | Lair:1   | Entered Level 1 of the Lair of Beasts
 14703 | Lair:1   | Bart: no...
[...]
 17306 | Lair:4   | Noticed an eight-headed hydra
 17308 | Lair:4   | Slain by an eight-headed hydra

Does this qualify as "famous last words".

  Code:
You throw a large rock. The large rock crashes through Duvessa.
 You kill Duvessa!
 Okawaru accepts your kill.
 Dowan's eyes darken. "You have made a black mistake."
 Dowan seems to find hidden reserves of power!
 The large rock crashes through Dowan.
 You kill Dowan!
_Okawaru accepts your kill.


Man, that Dowan talks fast. He must have been an auctioneer before he took up adventuring.
