Berserker camp. Bastard
In retrospect, could've worshipped Taurog from the start. Then again, tinker...
That happens annoyingly often. It's not just bosses, it can also be high-level monsters. The map has a tendency to put long corridors on either side of the bridge so if you don't have ENDISWAL your chances of getting stuck like this are much higher.
I had it happen to me with Bleaty
on the bridge a few days ago, which is not nice
. Fortunately I was packing preps and had both reflex and quicksilver, so I was able to just barely
get through him as a level 4 character.
Nice find on the bloody fountain subdungeon; too bad it couldn't save you here.
