Dying With Flair

So I've decided to participate in the /dev/null/nethack Tournament, competing for the Most Unique Deaths trophy, since I really don't have the skills to compete for most of the other trophies. Fortunately, they provide a master list of regular expressions for unique deaths, which I am able to use as a check list. At present I have:

  • slipped while mounting a saddled pony
  • zapped myself with a wand
  • zapped myself with a spell
  • shot myself with a death ray
  • choked on a food ration
  • been poisoned by a rotten corpse
  • been killed while helpless
  • been killed by my own pick-axe
  • been strangled to death
  • been killed by a falling rock
  • been killed by a shopkeeper
  • been killed by the Oracle
  • been killed by a dog
  • been killed by a water mocassin
  • been killed by an ant
  • been killed by a mold
  • been killed by a gnome
  • been killed by a naga

That's 18 out of 185 possible unique deaths. You can download playbacks of my games at the tournament's website.
