Forum:Piously Aligned but god displeased when praying?

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I'm a level 10 dwarven valkyrie right now and I just applied a stethoscope to check my alignment, which said I was piously aligned. I have a luckstone from the mine's end, but whenever I pray it just says that my god is displeased. What should I do? --Preceding unsigned comment added by Sladepeter (talkcontribs) 16:42, 3 November 2018 (UTC)

Sacrifice to your god. See [1]. --Truculent (talk) 19:25, 3 November 2018 (UTC)
Main article: Prayer
There's a lot of reasons why praying may fail; being insufficiently aligned is only one of them. See the article on prayer for more information. In general, if you sacrifice something to your god and get no special message, or the four-leaf clover effect, it's almost definitely safe to pray. It's also safe to pray if enlightenment says so (barring an edge case involving being neutral and polymorphing yourself into an undead creature). Most likely you prayed too soon after a previous prayer.
Also, when writing on discussion (talk and forum) pages on wikis in general, it's considered poor form not to sign your post. Do so by entering -- ~~~~ in the editor. -- Andrio Celos (talk) 11:20, 4 November 2018 (UTC)
