Not funny. Bumped up two ratings because it avoids colored potions and newts.

It actually has a point rather than to emulate the real-hack situation. It's fine.

Well, if he has polymorph control, why did he randomly morphed on the trap?

Is it ever possible to die by trying to polymorph into something?

#5 Newtkiller Sun, 15 Mar 2009 17:18:09
yes, it is. It lacks a little coherency, but we could thik he putted a ring of pc when he was a lichen. I don't see why people don't like it.

Last I checked, lichen don't have fingers...if NH allows them to put on rings (haven't tested, but I don't think lichen can do much of anything), that seems to me to be a bug.

So, either he had PC prior to stepping on the trap, in which case the joke doesn't work, or he somehow managed to acquire it after becoming a lichen, which I don't think is possible...either way, not a very good attempt at setting up the joke.

I don't even see how this is supposed to be funny.
