Forum:My pet killed Izchak....

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


So today in one of my games (playing a chaotic orcish barbarian), I go into the mines, and because I got lucky with finding magic lamps and even finding a friendly water demon in a fountain, I have a cloak of magic resistance. At the point in the game I was at, I decided that it wouldn't hurt to take a cat that I tamed into the mines to polymorph it with a trap I found earlier. I eventually get it to become an ice troll before deciding "meh, good enough".

However, when I brought the troll back to minetown, he suddenly became very determined to attack Izchak. Wanting to respect Izchak and not really thinking about better solutions, I try to displace the troll to stop the dumbass from attacking Izchak, but he apparently was very determined, and unfortunately, Izchak was dead within a few turns, and then his corpse was eaten.

Pretty pissed off with my troll, I burned a message on where Izchak died and then abandoned the troll on that level.

I realized a few minutes later that I probably could have locked the door and felt pretty mad at myself.
