What about falling in the mountains or getting eaten by grue?
Not that it really matters, of course, since you shouldn't be doing either, but this is the minor things thread after all.
10 characters needed...
You have moved into a dark place. It's pitch black here. Oh, no! You have
walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue! You die... You
suddenly feel your body again. You have been resurrected! Your amulet crumples
I guess the AoLS also saves your life in the piranha lake. Would it be possible to get to the skeletal king by equipping several AoLS, one after another? Or do the piranhas damage you right after putting one on even if you don't move?
You can wade through the piranha lake like that, but you need enough hp to survive 2 turns of movement (since you need to equip an AoLS every other turn).

Useful for those all too-common games where you find 8 AoLS by can't find a wand of cold anywhere!
Funniest story I ever heard on that one was someone
got there, realized they had no wand, trained rock
throwing high enough to crash the door from afar
with a huge rock, killed the boss, then realized that
they still had to cross the lake to get the ring : )
