I noticed an ice beast in level 7 while I was low on health. So I went up, healed, and tried a different stair and what do you know a damn 7-headed hydra was right near me with a giant frog. I had no scrolls of blink or anything so I went up, the hydra and the frog followed and I was right between them in a corridor. I could have escaped with spider form if it wasn't for that frog, but seriously, a hydra on level 7?? Why do you hate me crawl? :(

Feel free to share your ridiculous deaths to OOD monsters in this thread.

Ouch! Were they from a vault? :shock:

Re: A damn hydra on D7??? OOD monsters and you

Yes, they were from a vault, although I cant remenber what vault now.

Btw, just wanted to share this:

Image

First, a Gnoll pack on D:1. No problem, that happens sometimes. I just went down to D:2. First monster I found is a Water Moccasin skeleton. Somehow managed to kill it with a XL 1 character and gained 2 levels for it! Then a Gnoll pack on D:2. With XL 3 I managed to kill them using 2 potions of healing I've found earlier.
Entered a teleport trap in D:2 and landed in a small room with nothing but a staircase down. So, D:3 it is. Noticed that huge vault with some creatures of the depth inside the glass walls. Continued to explore the level normally. Then when I came back, there where Orange Demons and Hellwings inside the glass and 2 Smoke Demons free in the level. I´m not sure what happened, but Smoke Demons on D:3. Yeah. Great Idea.

And great game that was.

I will edit with the morgue file when it appears.

Re: A damn hydra on D7??? OOD monsters and you

I had this happen to me a while back, it was before I'd seen past the lair on any character. Had no idea what a sphinx could do to me in melee.
  Code:
Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup version 0.7.2 character file.

7757 Hreiss the Frost Mage (level 11, -2/77 HPs)
             Began as a Naga Ice Elementalist on Mar 23, 2011.
             Was the Champion of Sif Muna.
             Slain by a sphinx simulacrum (49 damage)
             ... on Level 12 of the Dungeon.
             The game lasted 01:32:05 (16131 turns).


It killed me in the same turn it moved next to me. Oh well.

Re: A damn hydra on D7??? OOD monsters and you

It's a sphinx simulacrum, which gets a beefy cold bonus to its attack. But then, normal sphinxes can smite, confuse, and paralyze you, so they're not much more fun. And are no pushovers in melee either.

Back to hydras, hydra simulacra do *really* disgusting amounts of melee damage per-turn, and are generally bad neighbors and a good use for your wand of fire.
I am not a very good player. My mouth is a foul pit of LIES. KNOW THIS.

I hate the Ice Vault on Swamp:5 for that exact reason. They are the ultimate glass cannons.
