I was looking back through some of the old threads, and I
couldn't find any that were dedicated to community stories of
the most random and unusual things that have happened.
I read that, in theory, on can die immediately with 0 moves
when autopickup is on and one is created on top of an
artifact of a different alignment or something like this.
Then I read that someone has programmed a script and after
several million starts of the game was able to observe this.
(I recently had a samurai with a blessed greased +2 weapon
and AC below 0 on DLVL 4. Then a trapdoor opened to DLVL 9
and just about 10 moves after this, a level teleporter trap
ported the player to DLVL 11. Moving up, DLVL 10 was a plane
where the player was sorrounded by monsters, and an attempt
to write the E word using fingers failed. That was sheer
panic. Should have use the /wand of fire/ to engrave the E
word! But still, my capabilities were adapted well for DLVL 4,
but not for 10. So even if I would have managed to restore
all HPs on the E word, moving away from that tile should be
difficult. The wand would be empty after some steps and the
staircase to DLVL 9 was about 20 moves away.)
