[Note I was playing a female Crystal Draconian Chaos-Warrior named Hasta whose most stats were 18 or better, except for STR [17] and WIS [16]. I was polymorphed into different forms by that Variant Maintainer in the wilderness north of Outpost. After killing the dude, I thought it was time to get the chardump...and it didn't happen for now due to the annoying aforementioned bug!]

This is reproducible. But, I cannot do a chardump because my current temp-polymorph form (Yeek) crashes the Character Sheet screen (i.e., 'C' command)

So far, I only noticed this with the v3.5.0 Draconians. I cannot be sure that this mega-bug won't happen with the v3.50 Demigod subraces.

I already emailed Chris my v3.5.0 savefile + screenshot

As a workaround, I think it is possible to just wait for the temp-polymorph to wear off and then do 'C' and the chardump. I think I'll do that and attempt to post the chardump later. Or wait until chris fixes this awful bug ASAP!

The worst thing that can happen is to have high-level high-powered characters unable to have chardumps upon death due to this^ bug!
From what I can tell this is worse if you play with the character sheet open in a term window. I now can no longer load my Drac who was fighting the variant maintainer.

You cant just close that window before you load your game? Or is that a too easy fix?

Now, that's bad...whether it's the Variant Maintainer or any temp-polymorphing monster. wobbly, you should email that "buggy" savefile to chris and see what he can do.

A minor bug with weak pseudo-id. I'm over lvl 35 so stepping on an ego immediately gives <excellent>. However if I get mind blanked when pseudo-id kicks back in it shows as <enchanted>.

Is it possible to bring saves from an older version (3.4.5) into 3.5? Or is it time to start over?

Generally the smart thing to do is to just close out your character on your current release. You can always make a backup of your savefile and just try it on 3.5.

A couple of comments & a request.

The new Ent fire resistance makes it very hard to fire protect gear, not sure it's intended. My guess is it's going to take around 7 layers of rfire though I haven't got close enough to know for sure. In a way it makes sense as it's hard to protect your gear if you're on fire, but it does seem pretty harsh.

I've just checked & the (death) ego doesn't count as blessed for a death priest. My request is for this to be changed. Even better if it checks the 2nd realm as currently a chaos priest with a chaos patron can't actually use a chaos blade.

Thanks so much for another release! Absolutely my favorite variant.

An off-topic question about Possessors if anyone can help:

I'm currently running a low-level Naga Possessor. I notice this monster has slots for a weapon but when I wield something I get this attack only and lose the crush and spit attacks.

Is this intentional nerfing or a bug? Or do I simply require greater dex? Seems odd to lose spit because you're wielding a sword, though. Wearing a shield doesn't have any effect, for example.

Haven't tried using bows with a naga yet, but I assume this wouldn't affect melee attacks.
