A question about branches

I was looking to see what branch I wanted to tackle after orc and this is what I saw:

Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup version 0.16-a0-152-g3058b2d (tiles) character file.

Branches:
Dungeon (15/15) Temple (1/1) D:6 Orc (4/4) D:10
Elf (0/3) Orc:3 Lair (8/8) D:10 Shoals (0/5) Lair:6
Snake (0/5) Lair:3 Spider (0/5) Lair:3 Slime (0/6) Lair:6
Vaults (0/5) D:14 Depths (0/5) D:15

Do we get 3 branches now or is this a bug?

Not a bug. If you think about it, you might be able to figure it out. Or just visit all three.

Or, if you can't bear the suspense,
Spoiler: show
one is a mimic.

duvessa has the habit to sometimes give ironical / sarcastic / pejorative comments. This can be a problem for people who are not familiar with him and was critizised in this topic. On the other hand, when you get used to him (and this may happen after a while) you might be able to ignore the comments you dislike.

Sometimes he's great! If you like look at his posts in First person to guess my name chooses my avatar or (I already linked this today in another topic) DCSS in a nutshell.

This post does not intend to warm-up discussions, it's a hint for skjarl how to deal with duvessa's comments.

Re: A question about branches

I do appreciate the advice, but I've dealt with people like him/her/it before. I'm not interested in letting folks talk to me disrespectfully in real life or on the Internet, even if they are dishing out useful information during every other exchange. It's like trading self-respect for gaming advice. I'm not willing to make that kind of trade.

Oh yes I fell for that before too, I was really happy when it was the Shoals that was the mimic

Mine was Snake, so I tried Spider and got murdered by a ghost moth on level 2. :'(
