Xom question

I took my first stab at a Xom character a few minutes ago. It ended with me looking like the dump below. Is it normal to have Xom mutate you so heavily or did I just have catastrophically bad luck?

  Code:
Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup version 0.15-a0-1475-gfb6485e (tiles) character file.

3847 Tholi the Fighter (level 9, 0/76 HPs)
             Began as a Demonspawn Chaos Knight on June 13, 2014.
             Was a Plaything of Xom.
             Succumbed to a killer bee's poison
             ... on Level 7 of the Dungeon.
             The game lasted 00:42:44 (10688 turns).

Xom gives you a ton of mutations, yeah. Usually good ones, but sometimes not.

When I looked at this thread it wasn't. I edited your post to add them (as mod I can do that), originally they weren't there. This doesn't come across well on the Internet so I probably should take care to add that I'm not upset or anything, and I intended my last post in a gently teasing tone.

I was distracted when I posted. I must have forgotten to add the tags. My apologies. Thank for fixing it.

Re: Xom question

It could have been worse.

Or better.

Only Xom knows, and even he doesn't. But you can still have a little influence on when you want Xom to act, and keep his interest levels up.
