Hee. That's actually a very nethack-ish thing to do. Although I can't help but get the Mission Impossible theme in my head when I see it.

I like the idea of compounding gas spore explosions

It's my understanding that this is a pretty good facsimile of the SLASH'EM Neutral Quest. (I don't play SLASH'EM though.)

#4 Dajaaj Wed, 15 Jul 2009 03:30:41
That's about right, although of course in the Neutral Quest, one of those little gray e's is the gaze-of-death-equipped Beholder.

I don't understand this newt joke. Where is the newt?

Earns an extra half point for the pun about "blast", though.

I love the little touch of discovering some random gold in the wall.

Heh. Reminds me of the Doom roguelike, exploding chains of barrels. Rated E.

#8 xCheckPoint Wed, 15 Jul 2009 15:16:30
In that case, you might drop a pile of scrolls of fire at the end of the chain, wait until Rodney reaches that spot and - KABOOM!
