One other question - missiles, slings/pebbles/boomerangs OK, but arrows/shots/bolts aren't?

One more question - is the prohibition on holding metal items at all, even in your backpack, or can they be brought back to town and sold?

I can see this one getting technical...


EDIT: One extra question
You can sell things in your backpack, so yes, take them back to town.

If the item is of metal, then you cannot wear/wield it... So wooden boomerangs are OK, but metal ones are not.

You are not wearing/wielding a wand/stave/rod so it is OK.

Hmm, thought of a tricky one - how's he going to get through rubble? Picks and shovels are both metal - does he have to find a Wand of Dig just to get through BD1?

My one's got Phase Door from Mindcraft by CL5 so it's not a deal-breaker, but it is an almighty pain in his Trollish posterior...

Interesting one...

This one is up to you, since I see there are some people who have not played ToME before.

My feeling is it is barred since it is made of metal...

Let us compromise! You may use a digger until level 20 and then you will have to use a wand or other method.

Actually, he's been doing OK with Phase Door so far so I'm playing hardcore and not using a digger at all. I think, with a Mindcraft character, that PD should be OK until the char can afford Wands of Dig (or, better still, get Thrain's wand)...

The main causes of death so far have been a combo of rubbish melee skills (waiting for barehand FF so only buffing Combat to about 20 or so until he's got a 0.5 in barehand) and tough-for-depth FF monsters (19 Rock Moles = swift demise).

Make a totem of a spellcasting unique and you'll see...

Mice are the best... Recommendation, go south of Bree into the water, summon your mouse and go kill a Hydra... It can be done!

Of course if you have got a reasonable corpse preservation skill level, you might be lucky and get a Hydra corpse out of it.

Creating a Unique Totem is slightly problematical since they tend to be alarmingly independant.

For a summoner type establishing a chain summons is the end objective... You summon a creature (for which you pay Mana) it summons creatures (for which you don't pay mana) - and they are all loyal to you.

Can all classes make these totems? Or just certain classes?
