Should be a simple question -
In Nethack often I've wanted to gain the telepathic intrinsic by eating a floating eye corpse. Normally I'll try attacking it from a distance so as not to be frozen.
This time, I tried making things easier by readying a group of darts, and then trying to throw them all in a row.
So I typed in n20f and continually pressed the right button in order to aim my dart.
However, this caused me to freeze up and get killed by a random giant bat, which was able to easily kill me since I was helpless.
I'm playing the Windows port, so my arrow keys move me. Is there something I did wrong here?
