AH! I had looked at Weaponmasters using Shields on the Ladder and they were all dual-wielding shield, so assumed that was the norm. Oops.

It's really just an opinion! Granted you'll get more mileage out of a weaponing shieldmaster with a human or a demigod and the "weapon mastery" mutation, but suit yourself. Stunning certainly has its appeal.

Does depth have any effect on how much gold you get from digging for treasure?

I can honestly say, in 30 years of Roguelikes, I have never looked into that. Gold rapidly become irrelevant.

Yes. Wall treasure follows the same curve as floor treasure. It is unlikely to be worth your time.

However, digging in the walls is always a good idea for anti-summoning and such

Just wondering if there's any broader support for changing dracolisk appearance. Maybe a flickering black/red D? I have lost a stupid number of characters mistaking these for ancient red dragons.

Also, losing a turn trying to [g]et something from an empty tile seems silly, but that's a minor annoyance.

You can make it shimmer if you want. But it is already a different color from the Ancient Red--slightly orange compared to pure red.

Yeah, I've been playing a Ring race with No Selling on (maybe I should just turn it off, though it makes getting supplies at the start a lot easier) and a lot of the early mid-game feels like hunting down jewelry for enough resistances and decent spells... mostly off of the black market. So, I need lots of cash.

On another note, are spell damage boosting jewelry supposed to not do anything for Rings?
