Forum:Odd removal by nymph

OK, by typist me ended up wielding a cursed short sword.

Took off, removed, and dropped everything I could, leaving the sword and a ring I could not remove because of the sword.

Kicked a nymph.

Who took the ring I could not remove because I was holding the cursed sword.

At this point the character cannot survive with is roaming nearby. I'm going to leave everything on the floor and hope to leave a clean bones pile ;-)

According to the nymph article, nymphs ignore curses when it comes to taking weapons/armor. This can be done to deliberately remove worn cursed items or the heavy iron ball from punishment. Being able to remove a ring covered by a cursed weapon is part of their immunity, I guess. -- Qazmlpok (talk) 14:16, 3 February 2019 (UTC)
