    Default Unexpected death upon leaving Rolf castle - hurthling archer

    So I had this hurthling archer going on. Got crowned early with Whirlwind - slings and thrown rocks were the only missiles he ever used.

    In the High Mountain Village I had a panic when I zapped an unidentified wand of teleportation to get the socr, noticed too late that it had wrenched the final charge. But I was able to escape with a wand of wonder, wasting a heap of booze until I got a teleport spell.

    The ACW was no match to rocks of death. And I also found Rolf's Fortress, finally, first time ever. Getting out of there was a bit of a pain with massive statue generation. I thought I was ready to take on my quest, then suddenly I read "You die.." huh?

    Oh..

    That DV is a bit pathetic, why no shield? I always try to get as many scrolls of defense and protection as I can to buff those girdles of carrying and 7lb boots.
    The chaos sister screams at you in a friendly manner.

    Just handed my shield to Rolf and expected to get a new one back from him soon.

    I recall giant dragon turtles being quite deadly even in 1.1.1.
    No resistance to water either, at least none that I know of.

    Well, the rumor that water breathing (e.g. from helm, amulet) should help has always been around, but I don't know if it was ever tested properly.

    Water breathing reduces the damage to 1/3 normal. Tested this back when damage messages were bugged to show the raw, pre-resistance values.
