If you manage to anger the gods, I believe theres a 36 hour period before you can pray again without agitating the gods even further. Also, as your wisdom improves along the game, you gain more favour with the gods every time you pray, meaning that you can start praying to more gods. AFAIK it should be possible to pray to AT LEAST 5 gods a game, as long as they are next to each other. Take for example that you are praying to Mellis; this means that every time you pray to him you gain favour with him and the 2 gods aligned next to him(Loricatus and Silva). You won't lose favour with cleptia or sophos, so its also possible to pray to them, but only if you have high enough wisdom (recommend at least 30 or so) so that the favour you get from praying to sophos and cleptia dont cancel each other out, in which case they would end up hating you. If you get your wisdom high enough through SCITalking and then getting it ridiculously high through dolphins im pretty sure you could pray to at least all the lawful or evil gods and then the neutral ones.

Anyways, hope this post was at least somewhat helpful and sorry for the mess, quite tired at the moment

Well, Ischaldirh destroyed my GEF chests in a game so I was just wondering how freaking hard the boxes actually have to be to not be destroyed. -.- It's pretty annoying to always drop it down on the stairways if it is indeed so that there's always a possibility that they break.

I have, but the latest game was just a minor error on my part, but I think it's possible that the chests get broken at least i've died a few times for what at first seemed to be small explosion and then my whole chest collection has exploded killing me outright.

Damn, was on lvl 12 with two +15 whips of thievery and valpurium gear and GEF arms, accidentally took my polymorph control ring off and it cost me the game as i turned into crap by assaulting the mage room and destroying all my wands which resulted in a massive blast... Sherax, Ur khan and Golgor had already died during the game so was well on my way to kill oree.... stupid wands always killing me

How much does LIVAN and other mods introducing new weapons effect the balance, making the game easier? Though taran used old style weapons...

One major difference i've found is the existence of a "dragon cuirass", an armor that has a higher AV than plate mails and is always at least dragon hide or higher as a material and really makes survival hell of a lot easier. Also, several gods give the champions some sort of rewards, ie. Loricatus gives you his branded hammer, Legifer gives you a katana and same with Cruentus who gives you the evil version of the katana. Most useful item out of everything is probably the Large and Mysterious Saga of the Pantheon which can either be bought from the librarian if you're lucky, or then acquired by knowing all the gods or then just finding it on the ground. When read, it grans +1 to wisdom and intelligence AND it can be copied&mirrored making just a few charges of your mirroring wand result in tremendous intelligence boosts. One "drawback" of playing LIVAN though is the fact that as you take damage, theres a chance that your body will get scarred, possibly resulting in stats decrease and a permanent hp reduction.

Capristo I think you'll find many more people beating it in a short time amount of time as these forums and the wiki are so full of information that you can get quite far in this game just by reading about how polypiling and putting items into chests works wonders

Been playing the game for three weeks or so, finally managed to beat this game and decided to share this glorious moment with you guys! Had plenty of good characters earlier on but due to being new to the game died to totally ridiculous things, (ie. drinking sulphuric acid).

As for the game itself, used phoenix feather limbs and the mode I used was LIVAN, so far from a perfect game but next game will feature the killing of Petrus for sure. Didn't really encounter any of the baddies except Guulgamesh but he was a joke anyways, his head was split off. Hardest opponent was probably the Vault Keeper at Kharaz Arad or then Elpuri who almost managed to kill me by destroying some wands I had on me(luckily though he also broke my wand of mirroring, and my clone then proceeded to whack Elpuri in a few turns) Gear was pretty much the standard here, vermis and a whip of thievery at 9 and material up to octiron were more than enough to secure an easy win. Oree, here I come.
