How Stupid was your death?
Mine was pretty stupid... I'm on Floor 7 with a Promethian/Viking mage, decent enough gear, and clearing stuff readily with the fire wall and lightning bolt.

Open up a Chest of Evil, and out pops a carrotman. I quickly summon my fire wyrm to tank while dropping flame walls on him, dropping him quickly. All good, no problems, up until I accidentially walk into the flame walls. I didn't know that they stacked, and even with my respectable fire resistance, eating 6 20+ fire damage hits in one go drops my adventurer faster than a diggle eatting a grenade.

Level 3 or 4 with the most amazing buffed hammer of gods or something like that. Did ridiculous amounts of damage. 1-2 hit killing EVERYTHING.

As I thought I was invincible I didn't really bother with healing as no one could get near me anyway for more than 1 turn. Monster zoo's was a breeze. Then suddenly stepped on a trap or something and a thaumite infection killed me gaining the trait "Not the Bees!"

The weapon was on level 1 shop and at level 2 I got enought money to go back and buy it. Doubt I'll ever get a weapon like that so early if ever.

it`s a while ago, but i remember it all too well...
i drank aqua regia (i forgot what it was and was too lazy to look it up), died because of it (early floor, already hurt)
the sad part is: earlier that day i mixed/used aqua regia myself (enigineering student, have some chemistry too), so i really should have known :gaper:

Level 15. Ran into Dred. Launched one of those rocket bolts of doom. Killed myself in one shot.

This was relatively recently -- forgot that I had my fire resist debuffed down to like -6 (due to a curse from a mod), and used the CK rocket jump skill. Killed myself in a blaze of glory (took a few beasts down with me, but still).

Any death that results from drowning is really stupid, and I've done it both ways -- vampirism bat form, and what I like to call the 'stupid dagger trick' (not even trying to get the achievement for it).

Those charging rutabaga guys are my nightmare. It's happened a couple of times where I go "Oh, I still have 30+ health, I can still tak--- WOT I'M DEAD?" Not exactly stupid, although you'd think I'd learn! XD

Attacked a monster in one of Brax's shops. With a fireball. The monster was standing in the panel next to Brax.

And I'd already gotten the 'killed by Brax' achievement, so I didn't even get a consolation prize for that dumbassery...

This has happened to nearly anyone who takes Astrology (well, once): Have the radiant aura buff up, diggle is in the shop near Brax. Diggle attacks you, radiant aura decides to proc, Brax gets angry (sorry Brax).

Oh, and how I got the Killed By Brax achievement was pretty stupid, too, though since it was literally the first time I could have done it, it wasn't as facepalmingly idiotic.

I had two Horadic Lutefisk Boxes (you can see where this is going). Tried to sell one to Brax...when he refused I decided to make use of the extra by turning it into Lutefisk. While I was standing next to Brax. Oops.

Level 9, had that gnome helmet equipped. Opened a door to find a Monster zoo. Hit the first guy in front of me, then I teleported into the middle of the room. :sticky:

Was my first day on game, used switcharoo on a flying monster over water, fell into pit of water, drowning myself.

i didn't managed to drown yet... what can lead to drowning? is teleportation save or do you always have a risk of to materialize on a water tile?
Hypereia Jul 28, 2013 @ 9:43am 
Switcharoo with a monster over water, or having some form of levitation effect active and it expiring while over water are the only two methods I know of to drown.

I don't think the game will let you teleport over a water/lava tile, and I don't think blink will ever land you over water or lava. I'd need someone to verify this, though.

Dying to my own traps makes me feel feelings I have never felt before.
