what's wrong with him? why doesn't he suits your ruling? his case looks the same as with Wight Brothers and their Mate who, according to you, will cause to lose 4 levels if successfully escape them both.

and it is still not clear for me what is meant in FAQ entry stating you don't lose two levels twice.

You lose a level for just Running Away, and the Bad Stuff is to lose 2 levels, so the issue I need to discuss with Andrew is whether that means you lose 1 level if you succeed to Run Away, 2 levels if you don't, or if failing to Run Away means you lose 3 levels.

It means that the 2 level loss for those two Monsters mentioned in the FAQ is what happens when Running Away, and not for getting caught. So, if you're facing King Tut, and only King Tut, you are Level 4 or highter, and you can't beat the Monster, you will lose 2 Levels, then roll to Run Away. If you succeed, that's it. If you lose, you will have to follow the rules of the Bad Stuff, but you will not lose another 2 levels.

Mr. Bones costs you one level for Running at all and a second level if you fail to Run Away.

if you face only King Tut, you will not lose another 2 levels just because there will not be any condition for it. but if you face King Tut and its Mate, there will be a condition for another 2 levels (each of them cause you to lose two levels). same for Wight Brothers (King Tut + Wight Brothers). you said previously that in this case you will lose 4 levels, but FAQ states that you will lose only 2 ("But you don't lose the two levels twice!"). what is correct?

The FAQ says you don't lose two levels for trying to Run Away and then two MORE levels for failing to Run Away. And that is accurate. If you are facing a level-draining monster and its Mate, both of them will drain levels if you have to Run Away.

To add to what Andrew is saying, the FAQ is only referring to the one Monster case. That is, not a combat with both King Tut and Wight Brothers, but a comabt with just one or the other, and no Mate or anything else t confuse the issue. That means you shouldn't try to apply that ruling to the Monster/Mate combination as a whole.
