I love this game.
Hilarious! Ironic that you were trying to nourish yourself at the time. A similar fate that'll get you at least once later is getting bored hacking through a long line of, say, trolls, and just holding down the directional to take them out, at which point some unseen nasty shows up and breathes/beats you to death.

Reminds me the one Pete encountered:

Hacking boringly trough bunch of different orcs, then their leader the orange orc:

Carrion crawler hits you -more-
You are paralyzed -more-

Just thought I'd share my latest little adventure. My hero managed to escape eventually but it was really quite close for a moment.

I was down at dlvl55 with my clvl 37 warrior, had a superb feeling about the level so started to clear out some vampires and take a look around.

Stumbled upon azriel, angel of death and engaged him, a couple of plasma elementals appeared behind him and started trying to cook me. Unfortunately my Hurin axe had no slays or brands that could affect him, and as he started to bring in archons I doubted the outcome, mana bolts and nether bolts were eating through potions. The dealbreaker in this was the appearance of uriel, angel of fire right as the fight was at its thickest.

Deciding discretion was the better part of valour I read a deep descent and dropped out with about 150hp.

I landed in a room with some blob, and being a lazy and foolish newb I neither healed nor even looked at it but fired a venom arrow at a demonic qythlog thingy. Being understandably offended it brought it 10 lesser balrogs and a handful of smaller demons. Here I make my next mistake when I chug potion of *heal* and resist fire and decide to pile in, ive handled lesser balrogs before though for some reason i feel i can take ten in the middle of a room. The blob has ported away but as i fail to check my monster memory i do not notice that the smaller demons at the back are summoners and in comes the balrog of moria in a tile adjacent to me as the rest of the room fills with more trash demons and lesser balrogs.

I was stupid enough to swing at him once, had to be done, its obviously a fail idea so I then read deep descent again and then recalled to town to recover properly, however that 1 round of fire breath from an entire room of balrogs melted my ass even with double resists and im again escaping with below 150hp.

I cant help but feel this character is gonna blow up and die pretty soon

IIRC all major demons (U) with exception of Vrock are summoners, so it could have been any of the lesser balrogs as well who summoned Balrog of Moria.
