Lol, I laughed. Nice job. Although... I believe it's impossible for traps to be generated in hallways. Besides trap-doors/telli traps.

Yeah, the idea was that for RNG all is possible :)

Minor quibble (other than the trap issue): the corpse in frame 14 should be white, not brown. And it disappears in frame 15.

I would have: not drank from the fountain, #untrapped the door, n45s afterwards.

This is Dudley we're talking about.

I never untrap doors. The chance of a door being trapped is tiny, and if a trap can kill me, my character is young enough that I don't value it too much.

#7 Sorceror Wed, 27 May 2009 03:45:35
I didn't think you got trapped doors on Dlvl1 anyway.

Regardless, this still works.

Well done :)
