I'm really looking forward to this!

Congrats on the challenge.

Were you using the mantle without telecontrol?

To continue the reign of free software, we will return to gcc for our next build, ironically in the heart of Microsoft's infra.

And there was much cursing and wailing in the streets of Attnam, for it is said in the holy book of Valpurus: "Windows is Evil."

I like to keep Kenny with me. He will soak some hits from a hedgehog or two, and when he gets killed I can eat him.

I was never able to keep a permanent pet (they always get lost, or instagibbed by something), but having a lyre of charm is an absolute blessing. Just charm a bunch of meat shields, and you will have a much easier time.

A "drawback" of levitation is its rarity. You can only get it from two items, both of which need to be wished for (or you do the Sumo quest).

I don't think the unability to pick things up would work in IVAN. In NetHack, levitation items are often cursed, which makes that inability an interesting problem. In IVAN, you would just take off the belt over each and every item, and be very annoyed.

I kinda like the increased knockback. That could be fun.

BTW, levitation is even better that you'd think. It also gives you a sizeable bonus to dodge chance.

Ommel hair, same with boots, belt is expensive fabric off carrying

I saw that bit of green over the shoulder and thought it looked pretty close to elven cloth.

Very nice!

Is the cloak elven cloth, or ommel hair?

You have to deliver the encrypted scroll to Petrus. He's in the Cathedral, in the big throne room, at the end of the red carpet and a bit to the left. An old man with two servants around him. Talk to him and he will give you your next quest.

You have to talk to him twice, once to turn in the scroll, second to accept the next quest.

Do the new bone materials like Dragon bone also give stat buffs, or just the ommels? Are they even edible?

It's just the ommel bone/tooth, because they are ommel materials.

Every material is theoretically edible, the creature just needs the correct flags to be able to digest a given material type. SPOILER ALERT. Click here to see text.
See ConsumeFlags in Script/char.dat
Try polymorphing into an imp and see what you can eat.

Can you eat bone materials when polymorphed into a werewolf?

Actually no, that's a bug! Otherwise, canines, bears and necromancers can eat bone.

And petrified dragon bone is classified as a mineral, so bone-eating will not help you there.
