generating spoilers = cheating ?

i want to know what are yout thoughts on generating spoilers for randart games; by which, i mean generating them *before* you die.

i find there is a big difference in play style. for some reason.

there is clearly the advantage that i know what's due to come, and i can throw out artifacts otherwise clogging up my home, that i know don't work in a final kit.

For me, the point of randarts is exactly that I don't know what I might find next. Pre-emptive spoilers are antithetical to that approach. But if you enjoy it, then knock yourself out.

Not particularly different from using spoilers for artifacts the first time you play the game, I feel. Though I wouldn't do it myself, since the surprise is part of the attraction, if your interest in randarts is for the random kits, it makes sense, and doesn't feel like cheating.

well, i dont need spoilers for the standart set, because i know it by heart.
if i understand correctly, at one point even scumming for good levels was considered cheating.

If it's cheating l, it's very much at the level of a peccadillo. Knowing the randarts isn't particularly different from knowing the standarts. It hardly makes any difference to gameplay. I suppose knowing details about cursed artifacts in advance helps, but that's about it. And cursed artifacts are pretty much an abomination, at the level they are currently generated.
