Weird happenings in RNG land

D:10, found my first ring in the dungeon, also odd in this game, no gloves, boots, or helmet so far. Two amulets generated though (Magic regen and guardian spirit)

I just cleared Depths 5 and finally found my first cloak. A minus -1 cursed cloak. RnG Jesus hates me sometimes

RNG has a bad habit of being similar for a few games if you die too soon.

Re: Weird happenings in RNG land

There's no way RNG "carries over" to the next game, regardless of where you die. Right?

Re: Weird happenings in RNG land

Yeah, there's a meta-rng that decides the frequency of aux armour over the next few games and another for jewelery. It's what all that bit shifting in random2() is for!

Most RNG's are based on the time you initialized them (and often other factors), so the time you loaded up crawl matters. If you lived longer, you'd have a different seed next game!

(no, you can't really manipulate this, and dying sooner is just as likely to increase your luck next game as decrease it)

Re: Weird happenings in RNG land

So, I'm a SpEn (because I haven't played En for so long that I barely remember it) of Gozag.
And I get 4(!) bazaars. (can some math genius calculate the chance of this?)
And the only useful thing in those bazaars is a randart book containing blink. And a few potions and scrolls.
And because I'm with Gozag, exactly 0 of the 31 shops the game generated are food shops.

Sometimes I really love this weird little game!

Re: Weird happenings in RNG land

I'm still really proud of this one with 3 bazaars and 38 shops.

The RNG does do weird stuff sometimes.
I am not a very good player. My mouth is a foul pit of LIES. KNOW THIS.

Re: Weird happenings in RNG land

I've had all of these except the bazaar happening to me.

Especially the bees. Oh the bees. And the first uncurse scroll found at D13. And one time 17 Hydras in Lair. I only remember that one because it was a death yak that killed me.

Re: Weird happenings in RNG land

I recently lost an enchanter who wielded a -2 dagger, and then never found a single RC scroll until they died on d:8. And I identified all scrolls as soon as I found them...

I also tried enchanting it to -1 because I forgot that no longer uncurses weapons (it used to). Oops.

Re: Weird happenings in RNG land

Playing an OgHu in 0.17, D:3, not much protection yet.
Got lethally poisoned by an adder. Only three potions, all unid. What do?
>qf
It is a potion of mutation! You feel agile! Thin metallic scales grow over part of your body! Rough black scales grow over part of your buddy!
You're now the sexiest ogre alive, and incidentally still deadly poisoned.
>ql
It is a potion of cure mutation! You lose all your sexy!
>qk
It is a potion of curing. You feel better.

Re: Weird happenings in RNG land

I had a run a week or two back where the first amulet of any kind to appear... was on Depths 5 in a shop. No amulets, unpleasant/cursed or otherwise, of any sort until Depths 5. And yes, I'd already grabbed 2~3 runes by then. Jeez.

Also had a run where some fire dragon armor appeared on the floor in d3. That was nice.

I got +2 gold dragon scales on D:2 on my last run. RNG is a sneaky, slippery bastard.
