Crushed by tons of luggage by picking up stuff
Picking up items fast can lead to you being suddently crushed and dead

My character, level 50 Orc Ranger with str 12 (stop laughing) was standing on a huge pile of his equipment.
I forgot to take and equip my girdle of carrying and orb of elemental fire, and instead pressed "pick up items primitively" ;
and then Y (pick up everything without prompting)
After pressing enter for some time, my character suddently died of overburden.

I think there should be some kind of prompt (where default action will be to NOT die); character should not be able to pick up item if it will lead to his death.

I had all kind of regular stuff, most of it very light, but also a pile of 200k gold (weighting 2000+s). I don't remember what item was the last before I died.

If I am not mistaken the game should prompt you at one point even after you pressed Y to ask if you want to keep picking up items. This happens when you become overburdened. You probably pressed Y again and then died from picking up the rest. I suppose it makes sense from a story point of view, you're picking the whole heap of treasure up so fast and unsecurely that you promptly get crushed by the weight of your backpack.

I believe I didn't press Y again. I could press Enter because the pickup log was very long and that's how I tackled it.

I believe that dying should never be the default action triggered by Enter.

I don't think ADOM used to let you pick items up all the way to getting crushed by luggage. You are definitely asked whether you want to keep picking up stuff at some point - presumably once you get past Overburdened - but there's a check that should make you stop picking up items altogether, before you are crushed by their weight.

But it did. My character died while picking items up in one long ";"

Which makes this a bug, yes! I do believe you.

I'm pretty sure this is a long standing bug with large gold stacks (theoretically it should be possible with any stack of items, I think, but gold is the usual culprit). I thought I read something about it being fixed, but apparently not.

There definitely is a safety check and I see absolutely no way it could be circumvented...

Doesn't it simply say that you cannot pick the next item since you are already carrying too much? That's what happens to me when I'm overburdened and trying to pick another item.

I just reproduced this bug in 1.1.1. By mistake, I equipped a money belt instead of a girdle of greed. When I went to pick up my item stash, the game stopped to ask how many gold pieces I wanted to take. I pressed Enter, then it asked again (which is normal when you have a girdle of greed and lots of gold; you must pick it up in "blocks" to gradually adjust your carrying capacity until you can take it all), pressed Enter, and died. :(

I never thought it will be possible but yes. My character died because he picked up 1 gem -- one too many. I just hit enter for all prompts being sure that my PC will not pick more items because he was already carrying too much... please fix it.

Attached a save that can reproduce the issue.

1. Attempt to pick up the gold.
2. When prompted for the number to pick up, press Enter.
3. Select the gold when you are taken to the normal pick up screen.
