Forum:Dangers of polymorphing your pet

Oh dear! My last character I named Vivaldi, and I named my cat Violin. Now it came to pass that I picked up a Cloak of MR, and while at the bottom of the gnomish mines, I found a polymorph trap, and managed to turn my cat into a grey dragon. I figured I could abandon the grey dragon at a pinch to gain dragon scale mail.... but somewhere along the line, my pet ate a corpse that changed my grey dragon to a white dragon... meanwhile, I finally found an altar on DL19 so decided to make my stash there and spent a bit of time dragging several boxes of stuff down to DL19. so after spending some time at the altar on DL19, I ended up with some blessed scrolls of identify that I used and found I had a wand of polymorph, so I decided to see if I could turn my white dragon back into a grey dragon.

Several zaps later, and I managed to turn my pet into a titan... Bugger... cant polymorph it further due to its MR... so went exploring around DL19 to discover lots of swampy rooms, and an electric eel... the electric eel drowns me, and I leave a bones file...

DL19 = stash = pet turned into a Titan...

damn... now I have a bones file containing a sizable stash with a Titan on the loose...

So... next time that bones level gets loaded, if the Titan kills me I will have been killed by Vivaldi's violin :D
