Today I got killed during an enner fight, and had a life saved, and - I didn't even noticed that - I lost my head (and survived!). I only saw this when the message about the head dissappearing came up while I was happily munching away the dead Enny.



Also, that's utterly irrelevant, but after I got Loricatus pissed, I was happily running around and stabbing stuff with a banana peel dagger +5 (including killing Rondol with it). Until it rotted away, that is

its says the severed head disappears - i think what happen is your wand of mirroring shattered creating a mirror of you that was promptly killed. only mirrored stuff, non perma angel equip, stuff from the sneaky chests and golem parts disappear like that

Ah, that may be. :/

Sorry for bringing an old post up, but... a groin can be severed? :/

Yes it can, though it happens rarely.

In theory, it just takes a direct hit to the groin, but I guess most humanoids tend to have it covered better than they have their heads.

As for the head, I think this COULD happen if the enner beast was meleeing You and the first attack killed You, and the second one severed the head. Perhaps.

I don't think body parts can be severed after you (or the enemy) is already dead

Let's just say some appendices on my body roam freely.

I've seen severed groins of zombies. I don't believe they can be severed normally (as like destroying the torso, it simply kills the creature leaving a corpse) but I think that it's possible for them to be left in the rotted pile of body parts left behind when a zombie rots to death. It's probably pretty damn rare since the groin is probably more likely to rot away than the torso.

I personally have never had my groin severed in IVAN.
For instance, whilst testing my atomic bomb in AtomicIVAN, I stepped on it and all my limbs were severed, and my head, but my torso and groin stayed firmly together - although dead.

Well I've had koboldy groins all over the place. And even though leprosy may have been the cause, I am pretty sure I severed them! But just sure

Kobold groins? As far as I'm aware the only severed groins you'd see are of zombies and mirrors.
