Are you folks sure that the Nexus resistance on Boots of Stability is working? I took about 400 points of damage from a dragon (think it was a Dracolich) on a breath weapon that it said I resisted. When I checked it said the max was 400.

Of course, Nexus is one of those odd resistances isn't it?

Dracoliches don't breath nexus, but Dracolisks do. Nexus is one of the weird ones, yes, where your damage ranges from 1/2 to 6/7 of normal (and the max damage from a breath is, yes, 400). I would expect that resistances would still be working; I don't think anyone's changed that code in awhile. Still, it's reasonably easy to test; summon up a dracolisk in wizard mode and wait for it to breathe on you, then see what damage you take.

Yeah, I was facing both a Dracolich and a Dracolisk at the same time since Glaurung was being annoying and I didn't remember which one breathed the Nexus.

I might have just been unlucky on the roll and had the 6/7 damage for 342. I was eyeballing the damage and didn't write down the numbers; I took about 400. As such, since I'm going to be lazy and not test it, I'm going to assume that it is working correctly. ;-)

I've tested these all within the last year, and they seemed to be working fine then.

Single resist cold from Dracolich or fire from Dracolisk also do over 300 points of damage. About 333 depending of the actual HP of the breather (might be little less or more). Don't actually know how big the variance in HP is currently, in old days it was forced max of some number for dragons, I think now it varies a bit.

Ok, my level 50 Gnome Mage on level 89 just got tagged with amnesia while clearing an Undead vault. This is apparently a new effect from what I'm used to.

What does amnesia do (besides setting the failure rate on all my spells to 50%), how long does it last, and what are the options for dealing with it?

Amnesia has the following effects, judging from my quick read of the source:

* Cannot read scrolls
* Cannot browse books (but can still learn spells and cast them)
* Device skill reduced to 80%

It used to instead clear your dungeon map and make you forget the identification state of all items you were carrying that weren't *Identified* -- flavorful but tedious. The new ailment is mostly interesting in that it makes scrolls un-usable, which nothing else in the game does.

...yes, thank you, and blindness of course. I wasn't on the ball last night.
