Morgoth missing in action!

Well this is strange: Morgoth missing in action! I used scroll of *Destruction* not realising it would get him too, but then he never came back. I've been down there for several thousand turns, killing off other monsters and exploring every corner of the map.

I figure he would reset if I left that level, but... I have force_descend on so Word of Recall and up stairs are both disabled.

This is with 4.2.0. Any idea if I can rescue my character?

This happened to me with Sauron (on version 4.2.1). I had to wait 250 000 turns before he reappeared.

You just have to wait a long time, a long, ...long, ...long, long time. And not die of starvation, ... or boredom, in the interim. Yeah, destructing Morgoth is a real pain, and a mistake you only make once. Good luck!

Many thanks! I stuck with it, nearly dying of starvation but found a few bits of food to last over 25,000 turns and he did eventually reappear... and then I died. lol. It was a long battle, but I'd just used too many consumables clearing the level.

Definitely not a mistake I want to make again!
