... and read it while in town, then geno 't' ... it's been done ...
How do you think I first ID'd that scroll this game? Okay, so it wasn't
named 'pol pot' (that just doesn't have a middle earth ring to it...)

What *I* want to know is this: who is *really* the good guy in *band?
Morgy sits clear down at the bottom of that place & never bothers the
townsfolk at all. Neither do the other monsters. OTOH, the player is
*always* killing off townsfolk--even 'pitiful looking beggars'! He's so
psychotic, he can't push his way through a crowd without killing someone
(something even the monsters can do, as they push weaker ones out of the
way; though they do kill their fellow monsters by accident, trying to
kill the player). Heck, the player can't be very nice--he even kills
off *angels* ... Go figure?

So what hope is there for the town, unless the town's noble, heroic
'battle scarred veteran' finishes off yet another, soon-to-be-invincible
player, before they're all genocided/fried by a rod of acid
balls/chopped in two by Ringil?

Heh. Maybe Morgy isn't so bad, after all... :]

The angels of the old testament weren't very nice themselves. If one
appears to an OT character it usually means he is in Big Trouble,
rather like when someone in a Star Trek episode is a) unfamiliar and
b) wearing a red shirt, or in TNG if Q appears to a crewman, or a borg
cube appears...

even the handyman, the mean looking mercenary may save the town from a soon
to be scourge. NOW i see the purpose of these violent town folks. any other
hope would be for townspeople to emigrate to a relatively quiet place, such
as afghanistan.........

incidentally, as has been observed before, the character of the player also
discourages house burglary. i sure never takes place in bands.......

You have a Long Rod of Probing.

Unfortunately, you have a Short Rod of Speed. (Or, worse still, a
Short Rod of Cold Balls.)
