I have a new story to share, and my longest near-death so far. So i was this berserkerguy, having 12 and 13 strength from the start, steel battleaxe in each hand, and happily slashing my way through the levels, praying to cruentus and cleptia once in a while.
So I was fighting this zombie, when my left arm falls off. How could I have missed that i have lepra? Anyway, I killed him with the other axe, and started making my way to town. However, before I get far, my other arm drops to the ground. Knowing I'm screwed if I can only kick from here to New Attnam, I drink the bottle of trollblood Cruentus gave me. With two new arms, I travel on.
And that's when I found the hedgehog. In one round of fighting, my left leg lepra'd and my right was critically bitten of. So I slashed the motherfucker to pieces, and decided to sit and wait till praytime.
Guess what? Before long, my arm lets go of my body once more. However, I make it to praytime with one arm left, and Cleptia hastes me while Cruentus blesses me, with a +1 on my battleaxe... Where is the troll blood?
Well, only option left is to crawl back. So that's what I do. Only there's this huge rat at the entrance, and I keep missing him, until my other arm detaches itself.
So I start reading the only thing left in my backpack: a scroll of teleportation. Sure enough, I get out of there before the rat kills me. But I am in a room, without limbs, without food, and with 2 hours to go before praying. So, I roll off to find some food. And get stuck in a spiderweb.
Falling unconscious every now and then, choking in the web, the two hours pass quickly - though I'm starving and barely conscious by the time I pray. Hurray! A bottle of troll blood! I drink it, and get a new arm and a leg.
Two steps further, another web. I loose my leg. A spider. It bites me, and with my last efforts (and only limb) I smash it against the oposing wall, before the poison finally kills me...
