Forum:Demogorgon first-turn kill?

I was playing NetHack under the Vulture interface. I started a game as a wizard, I think. I took a step away from the entrance stairs. "Do not pass go, do not collect 200 zorkmids." I was killed by something. I moused over the enemy to see what it was, and it was DEMOGORGON! How does this happen? (I remember creating big D during a wizmode game, but I don't think bones cross between wiz and non-wiz games.)

In wizmode you can save bones even on levels which aren't normally bones-eligible, and you can load those bones in a normal game. I'd bet you saved a bones file after playing with Demogorgon in wizmode, and then later got those bones. The lesson here: Don't save crazy wizmode bones if you're planning to play any normal games.

When you die in wizmode, and you're prompted with "Save bones? [yn] (n)", say no. 21:23, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
