The game is smart enough to make sure you can't go deeper than level 99 without killing Sauron, or deeper than level 100 without killing Morgoth. If you try to teleport level past them, you'll go up...

The song itself is working fine, Morgoth's just singing the wrong song, because of a bug in the code. This is recognizable by the "It whispers" message Quirk mentioned.

Put another way, Morgoth's...

Java is not that different from C/C++. You shouldn't let that scare you, especially since Java is a very useful language to know. It's used all over the place. And the best way to learn a new...

One of the main reasons why kill_wall takes the same amount of time as moving through empty space is that it makes monster pathfinding considerably easier. Effectively there's two kinds of...

I would argue instead that a game that requires grinding is imbalanced against the player. :) But more generally, the game needs to give the player opportunities to succeed. As a game designer, it's...

You can afford a Wand of Magic Missile with your starting money, yes. You can more easily afford a sling and some iron shots, though they're heavier, deal less damage, and are less reliable. Of...

My suggestion was predicated on the assumption that you'd basically never be out of a shapeshifted form, but you'd need to pick which form to use wisely (and spend a turn shapeshifting, yes). That's...

One possible approach to this: let the druid just be flat-out terrible in unmorphed form. Lousy HP, mediocre stats, poor skills, etc. Then you can make different forms that each provide a substantial...

Huh. Well, then either my memory is faulty or it got changed at some point. I'm leaning towards the latter since I seem to recall there being some discussion at some point about how terrible the...

I'm pretty sure this has been the case for a long time. Certainly, variants like ToME 2 that branched off in the 2.8.x days have icebolts and shards that will shatter your potions. I'm unsure about...

You're not the only one to have felt this way; the change to stat-drain was controversial, to say the least. I think most people either got used to it, gave up fighting, or quit the community over...

I think in the older versions it only works if you've used an *Identify* scroll on the item. These are relatively rare/deep items.

Seriously, just upgrade to the current versions. :)

You are not going to find protections before you fight enemies that use status effects on you. If you get blinded, drink a curing potion. Gnome and Dark Elf Mages both have pathetic HP, so just kill...

Levels 12/13 aren't very deep, so it's no surprise you haven't found any cool loot. You are also way too shallow for your character level; a level-22 mage should be able to go a lot deeper. That...

Townsfolk are just monsters with weak attacks and no experience value. Feel free to kill 'em, or if that bugs you too much, just go down the stairs and they'll disappear. :)
