SADNESS!

I was geared to the MAX. I was pretty sure I was going to get Elpuri's head finally and win. Twin phoenix feather whips of thievery +5, phoenix feather CoFR +5, phoenix feather belt of carrying +10 (yeah, don't ask). Mithril helmet of understanding +5, gauntlets of dexterity +5, boots of agility +5, and full plate +1. Intelligence was getting up towards 30. I was tearing through all SORTS of shit. Mithril golems, mistresses, dark knights, chameleons, bears, mammoths...

And then ONE mistress got a lucky hit with a whip to my head. Knocked me unconscious. She then proceeded to tear my head the rest of the way off. I was on GC7. Rondol, Guss, the Enner, were all dead. I had enough wands to pave New Attnam. I had 5 SoEW, SoEA, 8 SoHM, two SoGC (I was planning to attack Elpuri with two octiron golems at my side).

SADNESS AND ANGER.

Speaking of Mammoths,I just got pwned a little while ago when I was on UT 2 and I found a wand of polymorph...I saved it,went to Jenny on UT 3,and zapped her with it.She turned into a goddamn mammoth.It stopped the plants from spawning as I recall,but started the brutal face-chewing from the mammoth.Needless to say,I died.
The face-chewing thing reminds me of Alien versus Predator somehow.

I had 110 hp when I left Attnam, and was doing fine with my ommel hair gauntlets. I made to GC 4, where I ended running away from an arcanite golem, and mistakely hitting a floating eye. Then, a mistress came by, starting to beat me silly. Luckily my 110 hp saved me, and I managed to start drinking Can full of Healing Liquid. "Start" is a perfect term to use here. Before I finished my drinking, the mistress tore off my head.

Once i had a great hero. He was called ¨The Great Hero¨, until he was sliced into bits after vomiting on the High Priest. I was supposed to press SHIFT+C not SHIFT+V GODDAMNIT

Haha! I'm sure the devs made the vomit command just for that reason. They easily could have made vomit a lower case V but then you would puke on doors you were trying to close and not Petrus

Step 1, stand on an altar
Step 2, eat a large corpse
Step 3, "You are about to choke on this stuff. Continue eating? (Y/n)" Y
Step 4, Vomit is spilled all over you...the vomit suddenly changes direction and hits you in the head. Your head is disolved. You Die

Oh. My. Fucking. God. I could rip off all the hair on my head.

I had cloning with 3 charges. 4 chargings. Watch the picture:



After some hardening, enchanting and science talking I had about 32 INT. Then, I wasted some scrolls to get it up, and found a oil lamp --> Genie, got Helm of Brilliance.
And how it ended? The game crashed on ATTNAM, leaving NO AUTOSAVE! And so I got NO BONES!

Other stuff I had: Saal'Thul +10, Mithril Long Sword +5, Belt of Carrying +7, Mithril armors +7, Cloak of Fire Resistance +7...

And a frigging stack of those frigging 16 SOCMS!!!

The first time I ever killed Enner Beast (and by "I" I mean those lovely ladies sent to me by Nefas) on LIVAN, I got a lethal crash, repeated everytime I reloaded the autosave (autosaving every turn seems to do more harm than good). I consider this a fate worse than death

Another day as I was pillaging the kobold town in IVANT with my trusted slave (armed to the teeth), I accidently kicked him as he stepped over a chest. Somehow, I have assumed that the slave would have a "masochist" property and not fight back.

Guess what, he did. I had an AoLS on me, and its only noticeable effect is that I've died two painful deaths one after another instead of one.

Well well well, I had plenty of scrolls in my chest, just waiting to get a cloning/mirroring. Enner was a piece of cake, but something much more horrific awaited in his level. A mistress. Armed with +8 and +6 whips. Theres really nothing you can do there, especially when the game won't want to warn you with "You sense danger".

A way to avoid this is to (l)ook at enemies and then hit "c" to examine them and you would have seen what she was wielding. I do this often and it has saved my ass many times.

Once, my character had run into a Turox-wielding skeleton and kicked the bucket. The next time, I encountered a bone level of that guy, prepared this time, and the Turox-wielding skeleton kicked the bucket, earning me a Turox.

Hai!, Im new to the forums and fairly new to IVAN too

Anyhow I think my worst death was when I was happily drinking from a fountain when suddenly those green slimes popped out and surrounded me I started trying to kill them with my trusty sword and when I realised I couldnt I proceeded to drink from the fountain as fast as I bloody could hoping to get the effect where Im sucked through the fountain unfortunately the green slimes managed to rip off all my legs and arms as I kept getting "The water tastes good!" messages, Finally I teleported leaving behind my missing limbs and let out a sigh of releif which quickly turned to surprise then to annoyance as I realised I had just teleported next to a Jackel. Needless to say the Jackel made quick work of my groin with one bite I was dead and gawped at my screen in shock at my unlucky turn of events, I then looked at my missing body parts and laughed realising I would of been screwed anyhow and proceeded to make a new character, hoping this time, just maybe, I would make it past UT3, I got outside the starting area with my trusty lantern and my pet Dog Geoff and was devoured by a Zombie...

Awesome

I just love the way I can die in this game and laugh even though that means I have to start again

Anyhow I'll shutup now

You are hit by waves of high sound.
You vomit.
You die.

Death message? Vomited himself to death while unconscious.

(what's funny is that this happened during an enner beast encounter)
