diclining strength

Hi,

I started to play Angband a couple of weeks ago, did not get very deep yet. Yesterday i was cursed by a skelleton kopold or something in L9. And now my strength went from 18/20 to 11. I tried to remove the curse but this works on items only. What could I do? Wait until the Charakter advances?

greetings

No curse causes STR drop. You must have fought some monster that drains STR like red jelly. Or you got very unlucky nexus swap, which can't really be fixed except by another nexus swap and truckload of luck.

Getting level up removes stat drains. Other ways to restore are mushrooms of vigor and potions of augmentation, life, strength and brawn (unless you play older version where potions of restore <stat> still exist)

greetings
Is your STR in yellow or Green? If yellow it means that you were drained, either by fighting a monster that drains strength, or repeatedly stepping on a trap that drains strength. Just level up once and it will go back to full. If you examine your character screen you will see the actual strength (in green) next to the current one (in yellow)

If it's green and at 11, you're in more dangerous territory. The drain is permanent until it is raised by stat potions. This could have happened by drinking a bunch of the gain 1/lose 1 potions and having it hit Strength a lot, or by hitting a nexus breathing monster (vortex or hound are the most likely) and getting stats swapped.

Does brawn actually restore STR?

Yes, any +Stat potion will restore the stat before adding the new point.

AFAIK all stat-boosts first restore, then boost.

Are you sure of this ? My impression was that +/- potions dont restore.

I think Timo's correct here. Unless this was changed recently.

Why play guessing games? The source is there for perusing...

Technically, the +/- potions will only restore if they first successfully lower the random other stat. But that would mean you have other stats permanently at 3, which takes some doing.

Relevent code to look for:
case EF_BRAWN in effects.c
do_dec_stat and do_inc_stat in spells2.c
player_stat_dec in player.c

All right. I ll try to find a mushroom of vigor. And then I get a battle axe, and than I return to this kobold. Let's see who has some strength over when we are finished...

Thanks for the anwer!
