Goodbye Zayin XXI the Barbarian...
You died in The Dungeons of Doom on dungeon level 4 with 2821 points,
and 516 pieces of gold, after 2072 moves.
You were level 6 with a maximum of 79 hit points when you died.
Nethack is an incredibly deadly game. You may die more frequently in other games, but for pure variety, go for Nethack.
