Cold, RNG. Very cold.
So I'm walking through Angwil and bump off a novice priest, who drops a robe. Its worth a whopping 3 au, so I certainly don't ID it, and being too lazy to walk to the armor shop, I sell it at the BM figuring I'll get maybe 2 au instead of 3. To my great surprise, turns out its not a normal robe. Its not only a randart robe, but a pretty darn good one, though preventing teleport probably would have eventually gotten him killed. Very cold of you to tease a struggling character with something like that RNG. Very cold.

Ouch. That is pretty nasty. Just consider it a down payment on future good fortune.

Lol, that reminds me of the time I started up a Berserker. Being illiterate, he sells all the scrolls he finds for small chump change, but imagine his surprise when one of them turned out to be Artifact Creation!

Again, can't use it, but RNG is very evil...
