Hello! I'm a veteran roguelike player, but very new to ToME 4. I just had a character die to what at first appeared to be a single attack. Looking at the logs it appears that several turns happened after my last user action, including my toon attacking an enemy.

Code:
Blasty McShielderson casts Arcane Eye.
Blasty McShielderson casts Fireflash.
Blasty McShielderson slows down.
Ckon the human rushes out!
Blasty McShielderson's magic has been disrupted.
Ckon the human deactivates Stealth.
Ckon the human hits Blasty McShielderson for 110 physical, 62 physical (173 total damage).
Blasty McShielderson hits Ckon the human for 6 darkness, 12 fire, 6 darkness, 12 fire (39 total damage).
Ckon the human uses Dual Strike.
Blasty McShielderson resists the stunning strike!
Ckon the human hits Blasty McShielderson for 104 physical, 117 physical (222 total damage).
Blasty McShielderson hits Ckon the human for 5 darkness, 10 fire, 5 darkness, 10 fire (33 total damage).
Blasty McShielderson deactivates Shielding.
Shielding has been disrupted by anti-magic forces!
Blasty McShielderson's Grace of the Eternals has been disrupted by anti-magic forces!
Blasty McShielderson's Fireflash hits Ckon the human for 269 fire damage.
Blasty McShielderson's cleansing fire area effect hits Ckon the human for 22 fire damage.
Ckon the human uses Gift of the Highborn.
Ckon the human starts regenerating health quickly.
Ckon the human performs a melee critical strike against Blasty McShielderson!
Ckon the human performs a melee critical strike against Blasty McShielderson!
Ckon the human hits Blasty McShielderson for 146 physical damage.
Blasty McShielderson hits Ckon the human for 5 darkness, 10 fire, 5 darkness, 10 fire (33 total damage).
Blasty McShielderson the level 33 shalore archmage was stabbed to death by Ckon the human on level 1 of Ambush!.


The last input I put into the computer was casting Fireflash on the second line. My only guess is that my palm was resting on the trackpad, which was interpreted as moving into the enemy, but I have never had this happen before. Also, I doubt I would have done it perfectly for 3 attacks.

Anyone have more likely explanation?

Either way, I've learned to respect Adventure parties. whoa.

You were probably stunned and moved while being slowed, that usually means you're gonna get double turned

30-something total damage on all of them and only happening after being hit. That's almost definitely melee retaliation damage from your gear. You didn't bonk the guy with your staff, you were just slowed, and the enemy probably hasted / has high combat speed so they got 3-4 turns in on you after your cast. The enemy took minor damage from hitting you in melee but the multi attacks were enough to kill you in one player turn.

looks like you got slowed, or the dude had greater than 100% GS/Attack Speed and just double turned you naturally.

Code:
Blasty McShielderson slows down.

Thanks all for the responses. It's a bit terrifying that this sort of thing is possible on Normal difficulty, but I did learn that "Auto-use when enemies are visible" doesn't fire on the first turn of an ambush. My -1k life Heroism may have saved me, and I just assumed it was running when casting Fireflash.
