If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

I don't love it when...

The only downstairs to Orcish Mines 2.

You climb downwards.
2 goblins, 3 orcs, Psyche and Sonja come into view.
Sonja shouts! The goblin shouts! The orc shouts!
Found 20 gold pieces. Found a stone staircase leading down.
There is a stone staircase leading up here.

Ok, I can call Brothers in Arms.

Use which ability? (? or * to list)
Your troll goes berserk!
You feel somewhat more hungry.
Psyche shouts! The hobgoblin shouts!
Sonja unwields an uncursed runed short sword.
Its appearance distorts for a moment. Sonja wields a blowgun.
Sonja shoots a curare-tipped needle. The curare-tipped needle hits you!
The orc throws a tomahawk. The tomahawk misses you.
Nergalle comes into view. She is wielding an orcish dagger.

Bye, Orcish Mines, I think I will obtain some rune first ;)

Haha that looks awful.

It's always frustrating when your only entrance is blocked. I remember going to the swamp entrance and immediately seeing Rupert, Fannar and a Hydra

My favorite was getting poisoned on like D:2, I'm low on health and near death, and I start quaffing potions hoping for curing. First try, a potion of confusion. The second try, a potion of mutation. I get poison resistance and clarity.

Then I died.

I came across a hobgoblin on D1 yesterday who had picked up a suit of golden dragon armour I hadn't seen much use for. Magic darts aren't amazingly effecive against that. Searing ray works just fine though, took me a bit of stair dancing to work up enough xp to learn it, and no, I don't love it when I'm forced on to D2 before I've even found myself a dagger, worth it for the look on my face when I got back to where the GDA had been and figured out why that little b* had been so stubborn about dying.

This is somewhat disappointing. I'd like to have some piety granted when you die.

Fedhas obviously only intervenes directly if you're no longer capable of doing so. If you want your piety, go p your own corpse away.

You climb downwards.
You feel an oppressive heat about you.
There is an entrance to a volcano on this level. Hurry and find it before the entrance collapses!
You feel a wave of frost pass over you.
There is an entrance to an ice cave on this level. Hurry and find it before the portal melts!
You hear a distant snort.
Hark! There is an entrance to a minotaur's labyrinth on this level. Find the entrance quickly before the gate is sealed!


Edit. Never mind, was lucky to explore all three.

Well, I didn't even realize that he could lie about it (I didn't pay much attention). Perhaps that was a Profane Servitor, it was on the same level.

I don't know how does Xom's Detect Monsters actually work, but I noticed it often reveals a correct "type" of monster (by glyph). So it reveals all dragons as hydras (same glyph), I think it revealed Jorgrun once as gnome, etc.
