G, I liked it. I haven't been that much into NetHack, but is there any particular reason why Dogley left the scrolls behind?

They were probably cursed.

They probably were the only things that would have saved him later on.

In Soviet Russia, shoplifter curses Asidonhopo.

In the Nethack IRC channel, player curses dog for not stealing more efficiently.

I wanted to explain the reason why shopkeepers know your name in this comic (guards don't as they are on an Illiterate couduct). All of them. :-D

Why is the dog's name Doggy? It should be Dogley.
