Good just because it's been a while since I've seen the dungeon entrance.

..which is a good way to keep you from searching for the exit.

In what way is Skyrim less perilous than Nethack? At least in Nethack, you can teleport away if a gigantic fire-breathing dragon that can kill you instantly shows up.

I've lost more progress to a single tin of spinach on a full stomach than I have to all the dragons in Skyrim.

Ah, and I forgot the one real danger in Nethack, that which has no rival in any other game. So powerful that the Nethack homepage required a magic barrier to keep it from being blown apart by their accursed zaps.

I, of course, speak of the fearsome monster that is the Grid Bug. Am I the only one who notices that grid bugs and other corpse-less monster seem to be the only ones that spawn if you're wearing a cursed ring of hunger/conflict?
