Asmodeus & and various other monsters are in the positions marked above.

The areas marked "lmr" are lemure pits.

The small room with the ring of hunger additionally has three major demons and some cursed gems:

  • a diamond named The Tears of Koth
  • a ruby named The Heart of Cassanova
  • an emerald named The Eye of Hera

The 1x2 room containing the landmine also has a scroll of fire and scroll of earth.

The square with the loadstone also has an amulet of strangulation. There is a cursed -2 helm of opposite alignment on the upstair.

The incubus is on a throne. In the room with the mimic, the demons in the north-west and south-east corners are standing on potions of invisibility.

There are four random pieces of armor, four random weapons, two random potions and two random scrolls scattered about the level.

The room with the scroll of elementalism has some squares with a single gold coin on them.

All walls are non-diggable.

Strategy

Having a means of opening or demolishing the drawbridges may be useful.

With the possible exception of the helm of opposite alignment, most of the loot on this level is of limited use to a late-game character.

There are likely to be a lot of demons (and perhaps Asmodeus himself) crowded in the 3x4 hallway with the squeaky boards and fire traps. It's a good place to cast an area attack spell such as psystrike or sonicboom.
