Tree canopies are edible?

Maybe not, but Dudley is...

Since he didn't die in that panel, that couldn't be his corpse. I'm guessing it was just the best symbol for the tree leaves. After all, glyphs aren't fixed to one meaning.

It's a tree corpse.

There are spellbooks hidden beneath trees?

#6 Quint Fri, 11 Jan 2013 02:09:10
They're the same color as doors.

(Is there really such a thing as a "gold slime"?)

#8 Quint Wed, 16 Jan 2013 09:24:34
There is in Nethack 4.

No there isn't, and I can't think of a particularly good reason to add one either.

What if you wanted a slime that dropped lots of zorkmids instead of a corpse?
