Like the dragon in Shrek

Question: Can some races/characters swim?
My current Half Orc swormaster does not have levitation/flying, but canwalk through deep water tiles without taking drowning damage. By design or a bug?

By design, I think—carried over from Zang'. Just watch the weight % in your inventory screen. You don't go to -1 speed until 120%, but you start drowning at 100%.

Tried doing a Sexy Ninja, which so far is a great way to die. However, being Sexy grants Whip skill potentially to the Master level, but Ninja's still find Whips as 'Icky Weild'.

Should 'Sexy' override the 'Icky', or is this simply a yes you can, but NO you really cannot use whips?

Good luck with the sexy ninja! I'm okay with whips being both masterable and icky-wield. By taking the Weapon Versatility demigod power you can make all non-ninja-weapons masterable but icky...

I have actually used icky weapons on early-game ninjas occasionally. Ninjas are strong enough they can use unusual equipment and get away with it.

Hmm, that -45 to hit seems crippling, except as the first strike coming out of stealth. Will try it for a bit.

BTW, a wonderful way to die fast and ugly, Android + Chaotic. The bonus mob in Trouble at Home dropped a robe of protection +9 and something else, it was enough to send me to L14 instantly. Stats were scrambled, three different 'worthy opponent' summons. Needless to say I wasn't prepared to handle that storm of 'rewards', mommy? LOL

Mushrooms of unhealth are not worthless because they can be thrown for damage.

Will think of another Vapor Quest reward for berserkers.

No idea what's happening in Sand Pit, no one else has reported any problems there. Can you upload the savefile so I can see if I can reproduce the crash?

Actually it is useful when waiting out a recall and you don't want a cool ridable pet wandering off. Small compensation for no capture balls.
I feel like I made fiendish donkeys rideable but a lot of the stuff in frog is unfinished early version when I didn't really know what I was doing.

Everyone should petition rodent to copy adding max depths to shadow faires, rusulka and devil's huntsmen.

Should things like !Poison also do damage with maybe a chance to poison?

Is it intended that they can remove store discounts? Found a Dagger of Death for sale 90% off. Bought it and extracted it and noticed the discount went away.
Tried it on a couple other items, if the discount is 75% or greater you can actually make money, not enough to matter, but it seemed odd.

That seems strange. I'll look into it, thanks for reporting.
