3 acquirements on D1?

Hi!
I got 3 scrolls of acquirement on D1 and I believe it was not possible before. Do I remember it wrong or is it a bug? I am on webtiles trunk.

This was part of a series of commits by Hellmonk, aimed at making early D more exciting. It wasn't possible before, but anything goes now!

I had found crystal plate armours and gold dragon armours in D1 before these changes. Acquirement is not so good that it makes startscumming issue worse.

Also, D:1 acquirements often aren't that good, as a lot of rather ordinary items are still unfound.

For the record I took gold from 2 of the acquirements and it allowed me to buy dragon king armour (the best possible armour for Pa) before orc. Easy win.

Re: 3 acquirements on D1?

I'm sure it helped that you found dragon king armour in a shop before Orc; but congrats!
