View Full Version : Maybe I should take a break

My 30th-level warrior just found Bard, Arvedui, a Ring of Chaos Resistance (conf+chaos), and a Rod of Perception, within 5 minutes of eachother. Not from a vault or unique or anything, just lying around or as drops from wimpy monsters.

The RNG is setting me up. I will take a break and resume play when I'm not intoxicated with artifact fever.

The RNG is more cunning than that - it'll simply bide its time until you're back and then drop an undetected way OOD monster on your back when you're easing your way back in...

Hardly. If the RNG gifted you all of that, it will slay you subtly, look for the main thing it *didn't* give you - its awkward now, but hindsight will show exactly what you needed as soon as you die from not having it!

Remember also that the RNG may have been pleased with your present play style and may now get offended that you took its gifts and ran; should have bit the bullet and found out what shape it had crafted for your destiny!

A different boot a different seed my friend.

Oh I already know what it *didn't* give me - ResPois. And I'm nearing "that depth."

Heh, I always feel strangely dirty if I hang around waiting for RPoison. Don't usually die from poison if I don't but it can definitely get expensive in !Heal etc.
