The game has safeguards that prevent trap doors and down staircases on level 99 until Sauron is killed, and casting "teleport level" on level 99 will always send you to leve 98 until Sauron is killed. In NPP, O, ans a couple other variants, where there are staircases that take you down two levels ("shafts"), but those are prevented on level 98 and 99 until you kill Sauron and Morgoth, respectively. It is just a line or two of extra code to make sure things like this don't happen.
