uh oh - behind the secret door is a worm. worms are slow, but they hit pretty hard at this level, and i'm nearly cornered. i take advantage of my speed to slip diagonally past the worm before it can block my way.



i use the worm's bulk to keep a bat still as i slay it. with the bat gone, the worm pursues me again, and i'd prefer not to leave it alive - risking that some monster might pin me against it the same way i pinned the bat. i'm going to attack the worm from a distance with my bow.



i've found the perfect place to "pillar dance" with the worm - that is, to let it chase me around this wall (remembering to use diagonals). i'm faster than the worm is, so i can pelt it with arrows from a safe distance. this wall is small, so there's little chance of running into another monster who could interrupt my dance.



i hold CTRL and press the a key to turn off auto-pickup, because i'm going to be circling this wall a few times and i don't want to pick up arrows i've already shot: picking up an item costs a turn, which would give the worm time to catch up.



soon the worm is slain. i turn auto-pickup back on and retrieve my arrows.
