Brilliant. Good use of standard NetHack messages mixed in with just enough creative deviance.

Hey … so how do I know what that smells like?

Someone polymorphed the engagement ring into a ring of conflict.

You know what it smells like because you've had survival training, which is the same reason you can eat mold and worm corpses.

At least, that's my best guess.

Why WOULDN'T the dwarf lord know what it smells like? Do dwarves not have senses of smell?

Oh. I can't believe I didn't get it.
