ever run completely out of escapes? what did you do?

I'm still playing my HT warrior. I have 0 charges on my -TO and _Teleportation, with no ?Recharging or ?TLevel in town.

This happened because I had a moment where I thought I had the better of both Mim and Ibun around 2200', ?Phased into a separated parallel room containing multiple breathing monsters and Ariel, so I _Teleported into a fight with an ancient green dragon, then ?Phased into a room with a drolem and a beholder. Confusion+possible instadeath. I barely made it out.

Maybe Angband is telling me to chill out with the dive and crawl down stairs for a while?

Been there, sure, but with a HT Warrior, it's a much worse state. You MUST carry a stack of _Detect Evil and hope against running into a drolem for a while. With a warrior in particular, it pays to keep a stash of ?Recharge at home, just in case.

I usually recall and buy more. That's what it's there for.

Are you looking for new escapist fantasy to read?

Recently in TomeNET, I triggered a "drop everything" trap... on lava terrain. All that remained on the floor was my rod of recall. Picked it up and recalled immediately...

The town's out of ?Recharge, _Teleport, and -TO. I bought out the magic shop and alchemist to try to get them to turn over their inventories.

So, you know, I'm wandering down from 50', picking up whatever useful buffs and piles of coin are on the way to the next staircase, and thinking, 'How many turns does it take for the town to reset?'

The stores do a partial refresh every 10000 game turns (1000 normal-speed turns), but said refreshes are usually only a somewhat minor inventory turnover.

Do you know how long between full refreshes (or what is the trigger)?

There is no full refresh; instead each partial refresh turns over some random portion of the inventory. So every item in the store has a half-life, effectively, because in each refresh there's a chance that it'll be removed. I don't know what that half-life is though; it may well depend on the specifics of the store. Certainly it seems like the Black Market has a faster turnover than the other stores.

I spent ~2000 turns descending from 50', recalled and saw _Teleportation and 7x?Recharging in the shops. Back in business I guess.
