Red draconian of Dithmenos


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

Red draconian of Dithmenos

I think that Dithmenos conduct needs to be changed, because it isn't fair for brown draconians maturing into red. I don't think there is a similar case anywhere in the game, since TSO now doesn't care about poison, iirc. I sure will avoid Dith if playing with a brown draconian in future.

I don't have much experience with Dith, so I am not sure of gameplay effects, but is a conduct even needed? Veh & Sif don't have one, I believe.

Re: Red draconian of Dithmenos

Dithmenos conduct should be changed even ignoring draconians. It's a restriction based purely on flavor, not gameplay considerations, and it just kind of annoying and limiting for no reason. (Why shouldn't a FE be able to follow Dith?)

Re: Red draconian of Dithmenos

It makes it a gamble and is totally unfair and random.... which is great right? As for a FE how can bringer of light serve the God of Shadows??? It just doesn't make sense. But I guess the god of shadows apparently doesn't mind lightning bolts........ because those certainly would brighten up the dungeon.

For what it's worth, I know we're just forks and you're hoping for DCSS-trunk to make this change, but hellcrawl and yiufcrawl both have no fire conducts for Dithmenos.
