I doubt it's intentional, seems like an oddity I'll blame on Chris; though it's not that different from sorcery blood-mages recharging staves of healing from HP.

Possessing a Munchkin!

I don't usually play Munchkin but possessing one is fair play. No?
Feels a bit like cheating, *everything* is boosted except maybe hp, even device usage: all my wands and staves are 1% fail. And invisible + passwall on top of that of course.



Code:
================================ Current Form =================================

Name    : Dionysus, the Munchkin of Chaos (G)
Level   : 55        Speed: +44 Extremely Erratic
AC      : 162       Type : Evil, Undead, Male
HP      : 1000      
                    
Resist  : Acid, Electricity, Fire, Cold, Poison, Light, Nexus, Sound, Shards, 
            Chaos, Disenchantment
Immune  : Nether, Confusion

          Slash   Vampiric (6d8)
          Touch   Steal Item

Info    : Passes through Walls, Invisible, Regeneration

He is one of the greatest trickster. Even greatest warrior cannot defeat him, 
and his storm of holy might arrows from the dark have defeated numerous 
victims.

I used Dionysos to raid Angband 98 until I found Combat-Echizen which I killed quite easily (!!!) with devices and disappearing in the rock when he was invulnerable. Then quickly I unpossessed the Munchkin to take over Echizen and ... I'm too pathetic (level) to do it! So I'm stuck with a storm troll or maybe the Hru until I level up a bit. But after that, there will be rockets... [BTW - it was NOT a guaranteed drop so you can imagine my excitement and then disappointment]

Mount Meru surprise #1

On top of all the new enemies, I've now discovered the horror of asphyxiation. Never saw that attack before! I really like the new mechanic - not insta-kill but potentially a huge problem. Also, cure and healing won't make it go away since it is not yourself (unless being a skeleton ...I guess) that has a problem but ...

Another quick question - is the power level of a spell on a staff comparable to the power level of a spell from a spellbook? For example, can I compare power level of a Staff of Slowness to the power level of the Entanglement Nature spell to see which will be more effective? Or a staff of Sleep compared to the Sorceror spell Mass Sleep? Many more examples come to mind.

Or on they on different scales from each other?

Usually you can compare them, but watch out for things like two effects that look similar without actually being identical (and remember that most spells get more powerful with CL, while most devices do not).

Rings are fun, but a little challenging in coffee break as you cannot "hover" at certain dungeon levels waiting for drops (that said CL-28 is almost average for me).

One question: is "Reforge Artifact" disabled for rings? Or had I just not done enough quests?

Reforging is disabled for rings (and death-swords and filthy rags).

Fairy nuff

Next character. Am I right in assuming while pets can evolve, possessed corpses cannot?
