All about chasms (1.2)

Let us start a chasm thread.

1) You can shoot over them.

2) You can end in an area without escape but above chasm (e.g. by false floor drop).

3) Chasms are downshafts without stairs. You can go down faster if you want. The top spots of the ladder are up for grabs

... (please add)

4) ...Probably should have drank that Orcish Liquor before throwing myself down the chasm to escape the pursuing orcs and wargs. Says my character from the Halls of Mandos.

Is there any way to go over them apart from taking Leaping? And, directly related, has leaping any other practical use than crossing chasms? Doesn't seem so, since you still lose a turn when jumping and you can't use it while surrounded unless you moved the previous turn (unlikely).

You can cross pits, false floors etc. with leaping as well afaik.

You probably can dig around many chasms.

Do you have to perceive the trap beforehand for leaping to take effect? Immunity to false floors would make it kinda sorta attractive to take I guess.

5) Staffs of Earthquakes can supposedly remove and create new chasms at random, which makes them a valuable escape tool I guess? (unconfirmed)

6)I need to encounter again for confirmation, but I've seen bats spawn from chasms. A nice touch, if this is indeed the case. Also if true, I wonder what else might spawn from chasms... spiders... dragons? It gives me the willies just thinking about it.

7) You can knock enemies into chasms ... and there is a horn invented for knocking things back.

Sadly this is not in the game (it must have been lurking in the darkness), but after you mentioned it in a ladder comment, it is marked for possible inclusion in a future version.

Haven't had a chance to test this yet: Can you dig around chasms if you have a granitebreaker?

Flying monsters seem to treat chasms as normal floor tiles.
