YAVP: MfDe of Ely (3 runes, Delver streak)

Next up for me in DCSS was MfDe and I managed to win, making a 2-streak of Delvers. (Also my last game in Bloatcrawl (KiPa) was a victory, so 3-streak in that sense!) I had to use all consumables to survive to D:1 at first but I did it. Zin, Qaz and Ely altars were found on D:2 on the way up. I chos...

In Bloatcrawl, Kitsune are fox spirits, which in essence means two things: 1) They have an ability to charm their foes (resistible, with exhaustion) with their cute fox ears and 2) they have poor HP and mostly bad skill aptitudes (except Invo).

This issue could be addressed by just making the summons vanish if you unwield the staff.
Of course, a staff is a bad weapon so would this make it useless then... you would need some form of non-melee damage.

The monster HP is shown in the monster description. The explicit number we want is hit point damage. So if the monster has 150 HP and you get "you bludgeon the monster (43) The monster convulses (27)" you know it has 80 HP left. No need to convert anything.
