Yeah, the only real drawback of picking Sorcery as your second realm is that it makes it easy to forget that you also have a primary realm.

Mushrooms of Disease and Unhealth can hurt monsters when thrown. Splashes from Potions of Slowness can slow monsters (although it's a very low-level effect, and so not really useful). Splashes from...

The Frog (originally Zang) interpretation of Loki, I suspect, owes a lot to how he's presented in Wagner's Ring cycle. Wagner wrote his operas at a time when the Loki/flame connection was very...

I don't think the Stone Mask will trigger any special effect in this case - as a general rule, if you can't be temp-polymorphed you can't be perma-polymorphed either.

Speed does not work that way, either in 4.1.x or 4.2.x. +70 speed is 4.9 times normal, which is the highest speed attainable; even if you did get +175 speed, it would still be only 4.9 times normal....
