Did you know that whips can be made out of quicksilver?.. I sure didn't.
EDIT: Turns out that it is not very practical because wielding it requires 184 strength.

How much strength is needed to wield the whip by two hands?

Certain weapons - i.e. whips, daggers, short swords, long swords - are actually impossible to be two-handed. Their handles are simply too small.

If you're asking about a dual-wield ala a whip mistress, that won't be based on strength for whips - whips are light enough that virtually anyone can use it in one hand (provided it's not made of something bizzare, like copper). However, you need substantial dexterity to use two whips efficiently.

I picked up a flaming valpurium long sword +10 yesterday and some hours later it disappeared in my hand. What the heck?

That's just holybanana having his fun. Be grateful for being allowed to wield it.

My items kept disappearing in Gloomy Cave VII. Unknown spells came from nowhere. Some god must be playing tricks on me!

Dunno if the gods have anything to do with it. It's more likely to be the frogs. Or at least one of them in particular...
Probably you need to get close to it real quick and give it a couple decent blasts with a wand.

When you throw some broken bottles on the ground, you can walk over them repeatedly to damage your legs (take off your boots first). Damage your legs to bright red, then heal up and repeat. You train Endurance with healing damage, so your End will increase after a while.

Isn't there also another broken bottles trick?

SPOILER ALERT. Click here to see text.
To lay them outside the sumo's house, then place a banana behind them to tempt him. He will keep walking over them, weakening him, making him easier to defeat
