Infravision boast post

We've all boasted about character's speed, or average damage/round...but infravision is an ability we rarely brag about. So let's do it.

My hobbit rogue (clv25) currently has 190ft infravision partly thanks to Dwarven scale mail armour and the leather boots of Radagast (all +5).

Can anybody share sharper eyes than this?

But then again, i thought Amulets of searching went up to +6, but yesterday i found a +9.

Unpopular opinion: A reading of "The Hobbit" suggests hobbits shouldn't have infravision at all.

What's your evidence?

Not that it really matters that much. Infravision isn't a thing at all in Lord of the Rings. The closest is the ability of some people (like Glorfindel, and Frodo while wearing the One Ring) to see into whatever realm the Ringwraiths mostly live in.

Also IIRC he thinks he's gone blind when going in to see Smaug for the second (?) time.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not sure Golium is detected by infravision in Angband.

Consider yourself corrected. Races except Human and Dunadin can see him when he is next to them.

When you say next to them, do you literally mean next to them?

Seems that Selkie would see Gollum up to 19 squares away while not having See Invisible, or am I wrong?
