Up until cl 30, that holds for stat drain, too. Lose a point or two of STR? No worries--you'll level up soon.

(Moved from a different thread.) The trouble with this argument is it could be made about every nuisance attack. None of them are fun, and in any case drain CON already does take away HP. And yet,...

Mostly a personality quirk. The only difficulty you should have is choosing which items you might actually use at some point. Whether or not you get a bit of gold for them really shouldn't matter--by...

Why not simply replace 'natural creature' with 'animal'? So Ungoliant becomes an 'evil animal' instead of 'natural evil creature'. Or perhaps 'intelligent evil animal.'

Interface option easy_open.
You can override this with the "jump" command, to set off a trap intentionally (usually trap door or teleport trap--both are cheap escapes.)

*Slay Evil* at one point had a random ability guaranteed. When it was ESP, it made for a really excellent weapon. I don't understand why that was removed.

Losing 20k to a vampire bat is karma. They are easy to detect and have almost no HP. Just a single shot from a half-decent bow, or a wand of fire bolts will destroy it. No need to let it get close.

1/8 of the poison counter and 1/4 of the cut counter, maybe? That means poison tops out at 100 per normal turn for a single attack.
