Well, it's an old story, from the jconserv days. You may remember the little story I wrote on the guy with strange luck? It was in part inspired by an incident where, upon entering the UT, I found a backpack. As I picked it up, the door opened, the dog was one-shotted, and I faced the hedgehog who did that.

Sure, I'm just kidding about other real options. I tested it out and couldn't hit a hedgehog with a thrown backpack in 20 attempts. Of course, there still might be a 1% chance of actually killing the hedgehog with a thrown backpack, but you'd probably fall asleep before even seeing it happen in Wizard Mode.

Vermis, helmet of understanding AV 16, some thunder hammer are among mine. Also, on UT1, just walking along happily,

Things I have found in UT:

Arcanite chainmail (found a shrine to Atavus in UT2, read the 2 books there, prayed, received lovely gift)
Octiron quarterstaff
Arcanite quarterstaff
holy banana of Oily Orpiv

That's.. all I can remember right now, but I also know I have a bones file on UT3 that contains the remains of at least three characters, none of whom got past Jenny's minions after resting from Jenny fighting (or the ghost, in some cases). Lots of loot to be had (including a helmet of understanding, wands galore, and plenty of nice scrolls), but taking it with me will be a hassle.

Oh, I've also got that banana, and 2 arcanite qstaves so far. I wonder if that banana can be used in other ways - I ate it when I was hungry and noticed my stats were rising, but that was then all.

The banana c[size=1]an also be [z]apped, which works like a wand of fireballs. It also explodes like a wand of fireballs... Keep it in a chest or a lockbox if you don't eat it right away. I never do that though, the stat increase is worth much more in my books than an extra wand.

The banana should only be zapped when dealing with Jenny, if you find it that early
