Spoilers below, naturally.


Well it took me long enough to figure it out.

Home generates monsters like crazy, I believe faster and faster the deeper you go.

Generated monsters are often created with objects......

So if you can survived there you can create quite the pile.

Figure on getting zapped by fire, lightning, cold, and striking wands, so have a bag and put the wands, rings, potions, scrolls you pick up into a bag, and bopping back thru the magic portal to drop that stuff off there when it gets heavy.

If you have good armor made of leather that would be on the outer layer I think you'd want to store that elsewhere, unless you've fireproofed it. I've very seldom had enough of the materials I'd need or want to make it worthwhile at that point.

I'd keep the rings I'd want to use in a sack until I need them so I don't lose them to lightning.


I used to just work at getting a wand of polymorph, creating a pile off armor I find there then adding scrolls/potions/wands/rings/amulets I carry, at the Fort and the Castle, but now I'll add using Home.

As I play neural Barbarians exclusively pretty much all I run into is Trolls and Ogres. They seldom are carrying armor, which is a shame, otherwise Home would be close to Heaven....  ;-)


I used to skip Home on the way down, then come back when I thought I was strong enough to have a chance to complete the Quest.

No more.
