Immutable Laws of the Dungeon of Zot

I'm not bitter. These things have all happened to me. With a frequency which suggests it has to be deliberate.

1. A monk will always find a suit of platemail on DL1, usually runed or glowing. There are no exceptions to this.

2. When hungry, the chances of a monster leaving an edible corpse drop by half. When very hungry, this drops a further 49%. The exception is monsters who leave poisonous corpses, who will leave a corpse 100% of the time, unless you have poison resistance.

3. If you definitely have in mind a particular god when you start a character, the temple will appear on DL4. Every god barring the one you're looking for will have an altar there; the missing altar will be on DL9, most likely behind a secret door.

4. Characters starting with gods will see approximately three times as many altars to other gods between DL1 and the Temple than a character with no god.

Feel free to add your own ;)

Re: Immutable Laws of the Dungeon of Zot

When you're near starving and you kill an Ogre, and it dropped a corpse, and you cut it up and get 4 chunks of ogre flesh, every single piece makes you sick.

Centaur and Naga Bardings are everywhere until you play a Centaur or Naga.

Potions of Mutation always give shoutitis to Stabbers, and always berserkitis to Spriggans.

Xom grants you an implement of some kind.

You blink. You feel slightly more hungry. Prince Ribbit hits you. You die...
"Hey, that's my toy!"
Xom revives you!

The moment your Felid character enters the dungeon 3/4ths of the jewelry in the dungeon gets automatically destroyed. The ones left are the least useful for the class you picked.

Re: Immutable Laws of the Dungeon of Zot

-- When starting any character using maces, or polearms as their weapon specialty, the first butchering weapon you pick up will be cursed.
-- When quaff ID-ing potions, you will always try the potion of cure-mutation before cause mutation, and if you don't, the mutations you got from the potion were ones you actually wanted to keep.
-- When you have under 25% hp and are resting in place, there is a 100% more likelihood that hostile monsters will enter your field of view than if you were fully healed already
-- When engaging an elephant in melee and trying to go up the stairs, there is a 100% he will trample you off of them as you try.
-- Erlocha's first spell when she sees you will always be banishment.
-- Teleporting on Snake:5 will always lead to the Greater Naga nest, unless you're hoping to ninja apport it, and you will land elsewhere.
-- If you're a demonspawn, and find boots of running on DL:3, you can bet your bottom gold coin that the next level up, you're getting the hooves mutation.
-- Book shops are 500% more likely when you're playing a berserker.
-- Your miss rate for projectiles is tripled when there is lava behind your intended target. Quadrupled if you're throwing javelins.
-- If you read an unidentified scroll next to a friendly companion, it will always end up being a scroll of immolation.
-- That elephant WILL run away before you can kill it.
-- Unseen horrors are twice as likely to be generated on open levels.
-- Scrolls of blinking are three times more likely to be consumed by sticky flame.
-- There are no exit portals in the Abyss anymore: enjoy your stay.
-- Your wand of digging will always run out of charges 1 zap away from the end of the tunnel leading to the room with the stairs to Elf:1.
-- You found a randart Crystal Plate Mail? Too bad it's going to be -8 {Hunger+ MUT Stealth++}.

This.

Also, if you are a Transmuter, all artifacts you find will be weapons. Unless you worship Cheibriados, in which case you'll get armour as well, but only for slots you are relying on for Ponderousness.

When you find a runed crystal plate mail on D:7, you inevitably realize that you are playing a Spriggan at the moment.

Thread drifty, but I once found a shop with two Necronomica in it.

Fortunately that character died before he could accumulate enough gold to consider retraining as a Necromancer :P

Re: Immutable Laws of the Dungeon of Zot

If you have a spell caster who can cast a spell at 'Very Good' the spell will only fail 3 times in a row when it's absolutely critical. (And yes, I know it's just basic stats, and you shouldn't cast anything that's just 'Very Good" because of hunger and miscast effects, but when you really need an Orb of Destruction you really fracking need an Orb of Destruction.)

This is less an Immutable Law of Zot, and more a well-documented Blatant Lie made by the user interface. The part I like best is how "Good" describes a 1 in 5 chance of miscast, which in some cases can potentially deal more damage than you have maximum hit points, for instance a L4 fire elementalist's Sticky Flame spell.

Re: Immutable Laws of the Dungeon of Zot

When you spend several dozen turns looking for edible creatures, the dungeon will be deserted until you hit near starving, cave in, and eat your only bread ration. Within 5 turns, something delicious will then come round the corner. This happens so often I half-expect 0.8 to includy pizza golems and jerky elementals.

9.9% The target is banished to the Abyss


The number in the wiki is wrong. Someone probably put the . in there accidentally, because the chance of being banished into the Abyss is 99%.

I upgraded and built a copy of trunk specifically so my next Transmuter could have a look at the changes to Ponderousness.

No points for guessing whose altar is demonstrating this Immutable Law today :P

If you are playing a stealth-oriented combo trying to branch into long blades, the earliest and best weapon you will find will be the Singing Sword.

Sorry to spoil the fun but I actually think is supposed to happen. Ever notice that your filler scrolls (paper, random uselessness, curse gear) never catch fire?

Same thing with potions. It shatters beneficial potions (especially Healing and Heal Wounds), but never confusion or paralysis.

Unless those are useful to you. Transmuters will always loose their Decay potions first, then their poison and confusion (along with paralysis and degeneration). I guess it figures since you have the most of those, but it is pretty annoying.

As far as I can tell from the code, item quality isn't considered in this. However, each stack (and item) is considered independently, so filler scrolls and potions don't protect your good stuff. Only blood potions are somewhat special: oldest potions are broken first.

Somewhat oddly, it looks like conservation effects work on an entire stack at a time.

The chance that a scroll of teleportation will improve your situation is inversely proportional to the amount of danger involved in your previous one.

-Food will be extremely plentiful if you're playing a Spriggan or Mummy, as well as potions and rings of regeneration, in the case of the latter.

-God gifts will always suck if they're not guaranteed gifts or somehow easy to influence. Trog will always give you animal skins, Oka will always give you slings, Xom will give you an apple, etc.

-Mutations are always bad, even from sources that supposedly are more likely to be beneficial.

-Nagas will always find artefact Centaur bardings, and vice versa.

-Spellcasters will always find excellent heavy armor almost immediately.

-You will never, EVER find ideal equipment. This holds especially true if you're looking for an unbranded version of a really good weapon.

On DL9.

I think I've only ever seen one of these before, and that was a plain one.

Oh, what am I playing?

Felid Beserker :P Curse these non-opposable thumbs...

Also had two weapon shops, 3 armor shops. No jewelry shops, naturally.

Fountains of Blood are fairly common... until you play a Vampire.

If you play a Merfolk, you will not get both Swamp and Shoals.

If you're a caster and you do not take Sif Muna, Selective Amnesia will forget to show up in a book.

If you follow Chei, the next pair of boots will be Boots of Speed.

If you find something that occurs frequently in your games, it will mysteriously be absent only on the times you try to take advantage of it (why do all the runed sabres I find littering the first few floors when playing axes vanish when I pick swords!?).

So far, there have been no other boots in the game and I'm maxed out on Ponderousness in my other slots... but it's early days yet and I'm happily burning piety training Invocations in the meantime.

The moment you give up on your string of berserkers and pick up a caster again, every artifact you find will be awesome, excluding the pesky -CAST attribute.

Although imps will blink away constantly when you try to engage them in combat by themselves, they will refuse to blink away in crunch situations in which they are blocking your route of escape from a greater threat - specifically, they will stand behind you in a corridor and let that troll have you for tiffin.

If you get Teleportitis early, you will never get rid of it. In fact, you will get the third rank of Resist Mutation mutation and be stuck with it permanently if you live long enough.

Also, if you have Res Mut 2, drinking a potion of Cure Mutation will almost always just say "You feel odd for a moment."

Also Characters with cool Names Like Ripskull or Bloodgut you will die before D:5
However once you give a character a lame name like Fluffbean Jigglebags You will get a 15 Rune win and his name will be stuck at the top of your highscore list forever.

(This works best if you tried to make the same exact charter build with an amazingly awesome name over 20 times)
