Well that's because the chest isn't anything, so it wouldn't trigger a feeling, and the item in the chest wasn't generated until you opened it. Same thing would happen if you killed a Kobold and it...

Honestly, I would hate that.

I'd want to horde it until I get a good level feeling, and I can't afford the bag space. Right now, I pretty just read them on the ground where I find them and hope...

Selling is tedious and drags the game. Inventory space is so limited, have to drag stuff up to sell simply exacerbates it. At some point, you just don't. Rather than diving and killing monsters, you...

We played Moria back in the mid-80s when we somehow stumbled across it on a DECUS tape.

Our baby VAX 11/730 could not compile the program, at least I don't believe we ever let it finish trying.

Philosophically, I'm totally opposed to this.

Arguably the entire point of the game is to survive RNG and prepare yourself for the final fight.

If, in the end, the final fight is nothing but a...

There's a compelling idea.

The Blackguard gets so enraged he starts screaming at the lantern on the floor or the pile of gold. "WHO'S NEXT! IS IT YOU? YOU WANT SOME OF THIS!?"

Even selectively skipping can be dangerous enough (simply habitually skipping), but, perhaps, less dangerous.
