stupid energy vortex

grr. Just lost a promising elven ranger to an energy vortex in the Bigroom. (Nethack, for anyone confused.) 50 Hp to zero in one turn, and there wasn't really a darn thing I could do. It's not like Elbereth works *inside* vortices, and I couldn't kill it in one turn. *Sigh*

I'm back to the point where I can play characters for long enough that's its really annoying to lose them. At least I've got a monk at about this level back on Fractal's server. I really want to ascend a monk, ranger, or wizard next. (Yeah, I know wizards are the easiest of that group, but I'm better at the hack-n-slash characters 'cause I'm too foolhardy.)
