What's the history on the modern icon? Did Blob draw it? Was it specifically for the website?

What does everybody prefer, the pixelated icon or the realistic one?

The realistic one has the benefit of working on any background color. The pixelated one has a slight shadow so it should still be visible even on gray/yellow backgrounds. We can of course always add a background color to it as well.

If you prefer to try them out yourself (Mac only), download this file:

You may have to rename it to .zip to open it

Thanks Yeah I didn't even think about that but you're definitely right!

Usually AoLS doesn't do me much good because I'm meleeing somebody who is way stronger, and after I'm resurrected I'm not in much of a better place.

Next time I face somebody like that maybe applying a wand of fireballs could do the trick

I'm pretty proud of this one

I had no method of teleportation, no healing fluids (had drunk them all when I was very hungry and desperate), no wands to attack him or protect myself with. He had severed off my left arm. No gods that I was in favor with except Dulcis.

Fortunately I was in the big mine room and had been carefully searching every tile. So I led him to a certain one...

The werewolf steps on an active big mine.
The right arm of the werewolf catches fire!
The left arm of the werewolf catches fire!
The right leg of the werewolf catches fire!
The left leg of the werewolf catches fire!
The werewolf panics.
His right leg is severed off!
His left leg is severed off!
His head is severed off!
The werewolf looks slower!
The werewolf is blasted by the explosion!
The werewolf dies without a sound.
Something explodes!
The active land mine on the floor explodes!
The troll hide armor covered with blood catches fire!
The elven cloth glove of dexterity +2 catches fire!
The elven cloth boot of agility +3 catches fire!
The elven cloth boot of agility covered with blood +3 catches fire!
The runed elven cloth whip covered with blood +2 catches fire!
The elven cloth glove of dexterity covered with blood +2 catches fire!
You are blasted by the explosion!
You die.
But wait! Your amulet of life saving glows briefly red and disappears and you seem to be in a better shape!
You feel the Afterlife is welcoming you once again.

In hindsight I could have just stepped on it myself, then I truly would have been a veteran kamikaze human

His scrolls were destroyed in the explosions but at least I live to fight another day!

And yeah for some reason the whip, gloves, and boots I found were all elven cloth!

Ah thanks for that tip.

Body armor was meteoric steel chain mail I think. Gloves were just leather gauntlets of strength. I never was able to get many scrolls of enchant armor so nothing was enchanted much.

Still it wasn't like he one-shotted me... he hit me about 10 times I think. I have only myself to blame

Yeah this one hurts. I had:

- permanent telecontrol
- amulet of magic breath
- helmet of brilliance, telepathy
- belt of levitation
- ring of invisibility
- ring of magic resistance
- cloak of fire resistance
- lyre of charm, horn of fear, magic whistle
- Mjolak
- Astr & LStr 25+
- Int 30
- Charisma 25
- Perception 28
- low agility but leg strength was so high, I was not burdened and was planning to train it
- 1 wand of cloning, 1 scroll of charging, 3 socm, 4 sohm, several wand of polymorph
- can of floating eye flesh - planned to clone

I had been playing much more patiently for once and avoided some narrow misses. There was an early kobold with dwarven steel plate armor and he nearly killed me because I couldn't hurt him (at that point Mjolak wasn't repaired yet), fortunately a wand of striking took him out.

And I could've so easily beaten Richel Decos, but I got greedy. The other issue was I never found any good boots, and one of them was destroyed by dark frog blood so I challenged him with an unprotected leg

Went really well at first. I also found a can of ommel cerumen and a bottle of ommel urine and after cloning got up to ~25 arm and leg strength, 30 int. I challenged Richel Decos and stupidly didn't have a wand of teleportation out... could've beat him too And at that point I had another wand of cloning, scroll of charging, multiple socm.. ouch.

I LOVE the auto pick up so much. Throwing daggers is so useful now. And you usually find lots of really good enchanted ones too.
