K Odd, nothing seems to be missing. Sergeant, Check the inventory list.

K You're right, sir, nothing's missing. Except Izchak, that is.

m Of course not. I'm blind. All I heard was a zap.

DUN DUN DUN!


By the way, would Kopley's pet be named K9ley?

One zap to kill a shopkeeper? When shopkeepers have MR?

#3 XandersolTehEpic Wed, 9 Nov 2011 02:26:53
Wiz mode test reveals that shopkeeps don't have MR.

#4 Sorceror Wed, 9 Nov 2011 06:53:17
Huh, I thought they did. I'm sure I remember accidentally zapping some and it bouncing off.

#5 anther Wed, 9 Nov 2011 07:20:05
Wands of death usually work on them, yes.

#6 tahujdt Wed, 9 Nov 2011 17:51:38
I need ideas for suspects. Post them please.

#7 XandersolTehEpic Wed, 9 Nov 2011 22:44:37
How's this for a suspect list:
Dudley
Dudley
Dudley
Dogley
Dudley
and Dudley.
But yeah, do Dogley. He's pretty much evil.

Izchak zapped himself. Polymorphed into a mimic.

@Sorceror: Shopkeepers have good monster MR - which protects against a lot of things, such as wands of striking or sleep. They don't have player-style magic resistance - which protects against wands of death. Monsters can get player-style magic resistance: either by wearing/carrying an item that gives it, having a magic missile attack (making some monsters you wouldn't expect, such as Yeenoghu, the Oracle, and Angels, magic resistant), or by being a baby gray dragon.
